Taylor Swift promised that 1989 would be a pure pop album, and after listening to "Shake It Off" and "Out of the Woods," we definitely agree. Her latest song "Welcome to New York" is for dancing like crazy!
As she explained when she teased the song yesterday, the track focuses on her experience moving to New York City. She's been so inspired by her new home that she's even been trying to convince her BFF Selena Gomez to move to the city with her. (This just goes to show that Taylor doesn't only write about her ex-boyfriends.)
Check out the lyrics for "Welcome to New York" below, and let us know what you think about the song in the comments!
WELCOME TO NEW YORK
Walking through a crowd The village is aglow Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats Under coats Everybody here wanted something more Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before And it said
Welcome to New York It’s been waiting for you Welcome to New York Welcome to New York Welcome to New York It’s been waiting for you Welcome to New York Welcome to New York
It’s a new soundtrack I could dance to this beat, beat Forevermore The lights are so bright But they never blind me, me Welcome to New York It’s been waiting for you Welcome to New York Welcome to New York
When we first dropped our bags On apartment floors Took our broken hearts Put them in a drawer Everybody here was someone else before And you can want who you want Boys and boys and girls and girls
Like any great love It keeps you guessing Like any real love It’s ever changing Like any true love It drives you crazy But you know you wouldn’t change Anything, anything, anything…
