Wake to a call
I'm leaving early
No more feelings left to say
Emptiness remains
And I go
I go in pain
You can't pretend it doesn't matter
I see it in your face
When you look away
Ride this train I'm heading home
Back to Ol' Ohio
You can't deny me this
Did you really want to kiss
Captured smiles in photograph
Do I really need to ask
What you're thinking
What you're feeling
What you really want to say is that
"I love you"
Please stay
Ride this train back home
Back to Ol' Ohio
You can't deny me this
Did you really want to kiss
So won't you grant me this tonight
We'll take a walk
And bathe in the Moon's Light
And I'll finally realize
How goddamn bright your eyes are
In the starlight

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
