(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ME BY TAYLOR SWIFT FT BRENDON URIE “DID TAYLOR SWIFT JUST CALL THOSE CATS HER YOUNG DAUGHTERS?”

@ogefashblog

In the song “Me” by Taylor Swift, the artiste uses the word “Me” to refer to herself as a unique being irrespective of her imperfection. We can see the theme of self love in the song in that despite the fact that the artiste knows all her flaws and how toxic they may be, she has come to accept them as things that are just part of her and make her unique. She loves herself and feels she is as good as anyone else. She even lets her significant other know that there can be no one as unique as her despite her flaws.

So, one can say the song is basically about understanding and embracing your partner’s imperfection; see an imperfect person perfectly.

This is a colourful video; a great cinematography. Ehen, did Taylor Swift just call the cats their young daughters? Oga o; this is serious!

LYRICS TO ME BY TAYLOR SWIFT

INTRO

I promise that you’ll never find another like me

VERSE 1

I know that I’m a handful, baby, uh
I know I never think before I jump
And you’re the kind of guy the ladies want
(And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there)
I know that I went psycho on the phone
I never leave well enough alone
And trouble’s gonna follow where I go
(And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there)

PRE CHORUS

But one of these things is not like the others
Like a rainbow with all of the colors
Baby doll, when it comes to a lover
I promise that you’ll never find another like

CHORUS

Me-e-e, oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m the only one of me
Baby, that’s the fun of me
Eeh-eeh-eeh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You’re the only one of you
Baby, that’s the fun of you
And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me-e-e

VERSE 2

I know I tend to make it about me
I know you never get just what you see
But I will never bore you, baby
(And there’s a lot of lame guys out there)
And when we had that fight out in the rain
You ran after me and called my name
I never wanna see you walk away
(And there’s a lot of lame guys out there)

PRE CHORUS

‘Cause one of these things is not like the others
Livin’ in winter, I am your summer
Baby doll, when it comes to a lover
I promise that you’ll never find another like

CHORUS

Me-e-e, oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m the only one of me
Love and keep me company
Eeh-eeh-eeh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You’re the only one of you
Baby, that’s the fun of you
And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me-e-e

BRIDGE

Hey, kids!
Spelling is fun!
Girl, there ain’t no I in “team”
But you know there is a “me”
Strike the band up, one, two, three
I promise that you’ll never find another like me
Girl, there ain’t no I in “team”
But you know there is a “me”
And you can’t spell “awesome” without “me”
I promise that you’ll never find another like

CHORUS

Me-e-e, oh-oh-oh-oh (And I want ya baby)
I’m the only one of me (I am the only one of me)
Baby, that’s the fun of me (Baby, that’s the fun of me)
Eeh-eeh-eeh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (Oh oh oh)
You’re the only one of you (Oh oh)
Baby, that’s the fun of you
And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me-e-e

OUTRO

Girl, there ain’t no I in “team” (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
But you know there is a “me”
I’m the only one of me (Oh-oh)
Baby, that’s the fun of me
(Eeh-eeh-eeh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Strike the band up, one, two, three
You can’t spell “awesome” without “me”
You’re the only one of you (Yeah yeah)
Baby, that’s the fun of you
And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me-e-e
