Taylor Swift (ft. Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco)- ME! Lyrics Review & Lyrics Meaning
Taylor Swift teaches listeners a lesson about self-love and confidence with ‘ME!’ featuring Panic! At the Disco frontman Brendon Urie. Swift had received a lot of negative press by her 2017 album ‘Reputation’. Well, let’s review the lyrics of ‘ME!’ by Taylor Swift featuring Brendon Urie of ‘Panic! At The Disco’.
She got called Snake by the public but I did not believe that she would transform herself from the snake into the butterflies, as shown in the music video. Butterflies, however, were Mariah Carey’s signature which was then taken by Ariana Grande. Now, it is with Taylor Swift.
[Intro: Taylor Swift]
I promise that you’ll never find another like me
The intro of the music video had a snake transforming itself into a number of beautiful butterflies. This might be suggesting to us that she is a human being and she is capable of change. She is not the type of person who holds grudges from the past and belittles the possibilities of the future. Taylor Swift is spreading positivity out here.
[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]
I know I never think before I jump
While I was trying to review the lyrics of the first verse of ‘ME!’, this particular line from Taylor Swift struck my head. Taylor Swift is being realistic and totally relatable by this line right here. We never think before we take certain actions. This might lead us to a situation which can never be fixed and all you will be able to do is keep thinking about the possible future if that certain incident hadn’t occurred before.
I know that I went psycho on the phone
I never leave well enough alone
Taylor Swift is reminiscing her past self. In the latest reference of the phone in her songs, we have “The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now” from ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. She realizes that she wasn’t herself when she was in the phone call with her lover then. It is one of her weaknesses.
And trouble’s gonna follow where I go
(And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there)
We can see an insecure side of Taylor here. She is insecure about the fact that there are a lot of other cool girls out there because of which she might lose the person she likes. Taylor thinks she is boring than other girls out there.
[Verse 2: Brendon Urie & Taylor Swift]
I never wanna see you walk away
(And there’s a lot of lame guys out there)
Let’s review the last two lines from the lyrics of ‘ME!’ by Brendon Urie and Taylor Swift. Not only Taylor is scared of losing her lover, but her lover is also scared to lose her as well because he knows there are a lot of boring guys out there.
[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Brendon Urie, Brendon Urie]
Livin’ in winter, I am your summer
Taylor Swift uses summer to associate herself with a brighter and warmer outlook compared to winter’s cold and dry ambiance.
In overall, the song revolves around the concepts like “I am the only one who is like me” and “No one will love you as I do”. I didn’t find any profound usage of metaphors. I tried to look for the metaphors for this lyrics review of ‘ME!’ by Taylor Swift. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any. However, the song really throws a positive vibe.
The targeted audiences are of course in the age range of 12 to 35. The high kicks used in the song make the song feel like old Taylor Swift songs. The hook is catchy but I am sure she could have written a better hook. However, it becomes a little boring if you keep repeating the song. People trying to seek the meaning of themselves find this song to be fascinating.
I give ‘ME!’ by Taylor Swift a light 06/10 in the Lyrics Review category. Hey, Taylor, please go back to ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ phase, please.
