Poetry in Song 2: Taylor Swift- ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’

“I Knew You Were Trouble”

‘[Music video spoken part:]
I think–I think when it’s all over,
It just comes back in flashes, you know?
It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories.
It just all comes back. But he never does.
I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen.
It’s not really anything he said or anything he did,
It was the feeling that came along with it.
And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again.
But I don’t know if I should.
I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright.
But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?
Maybe he knew that when he saw me.
I guess I just lost my balance.
I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him.
It was losing me.Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me, you found me, you found me
I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me, without me, without meAnd he’s long gone when he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, he’ll never see you cry
Pretend he doesn’t know that he’s the reason why
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, yeah!

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you never loved me or her, or anyone, or anything, yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

[Music video spoken part:]
I don’t know if you know who you are until you lose who you are.’ (http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/taylorswift/iknewyouweretrouble.html, accessed January 2013)

Poetry in Song 1: Bebe- Siempre Me Quedara

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-HKvYDTpoc

Siempre Me Quedará

‘Cómo decir que me parte en mil
las esquinitas de mis huesos,
que han caído los esquemas de mi vida
ahora que todo era perfecto.
Y algo más que eso,
me sorbiste el seso y me decían del peso
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.

Me cuesta abrir los ojos
y lo hago poco a poco,
no sea que aún te encuentre cerca.
Me guardo tu recuerdo
como el mejor secreto,
que dulce fue tenerte dentro.

Hay un trozo de luz
en esta oscuridad
para prestarme calma.
El tiempo todo calma,
la tempestad y la calma,
el tiempo todo calma,
la tempestad y la calma.

Siempre me quedará
la voz suave del mar,
volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.
En la voz suave del mar,
en volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.

Cómo decir que me parte en mil
las esquinitas de mis huesos,
que han caído los esquemas de mi vida
ahora que todo era perfecto.
Y algo más que eso,
me sorbiste el seso y me decían del peso
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.

Siempre me quedará
la voz suave del mar,
volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.
En la voz suave del mar,
en volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.’

Day 1 ©

The night alone in my thoughts

was restless

The morning awoke with a phone call

from a friend

a dear friend for me

She, was in tears

another love story

that she does not want to end

the boy (28) did not want the R word

he played her

for sexual pleasure

and she, thought she could handle it

she thought they would eventually

be as one

but no

her heart cried, not 1,

not 2,

but many times

why I ask myself

does our heart have to pain

the pain of love

is always deep

For me, each person that I have loved

for me to run away

and cut the strings

the pain

is deep

so deep

your heart cries

even if  tears

do not appear

on your smooth face

but I say young girl,

I say young guy

I say to you woman, man

whoever you are

‘chin up’

You will make it Through

Your achievements are not

because of your love

who you are now

is because of you

learn to live

Smile

Stay Strong

Keep Going

You are not alone

Your Family, Friends,

Your best friends,

who are your

sisters and brothers

They will be there

They will support you

Now wipe away the

tears,

stand up

and shout it in your mind,

‘I will Climb this Mountain,

And I, yes You, yes me, yes I,

yes [insert name] will

climb it…And when I am at

the Top I will stand still and….

Smile with my Heart, my Big

Beautiful and Strong Heart’

with all my love….<3

A little birdy told me… ©

A Little birdy told me,

You have not changed

You are still miss D

…’Look at you miss D, look at what you have

achieved on your own…

a merit in a masters

you have dreamed of since 16

….yes miss D…

You are a strong driven young woman

do not worry about the label called single…

Take it away…

And call yourself: Miss D

Remember what you are made of’

Always remember what YOU are made of.

You have always been you

not his, not hers,

but always you

Remember that.

Memories of my heart. ©

I lay in my bed

Thinking of all the things he said

all the things we did

all the nights laying in bed.

I miss those moments together

the days we actually spent

with real human contact.

To say I miss him

I would not know what to say

it seems my heart grew used

to the time we spent apart

the 1 year plus

of video calls, phone calls

and texting

distance broke us

our youth did not help…

With not enough money

he could not come

with no job, no longer,

I could not come

and eventually the relationship

began to fade,

I saw the cracks

I must admit

 I tried to fix what we had

but he did not understand

I will always wonder

is it me?

And I have to be  honest…

I think it is.

Since the ripe age of 18

my life has been

relationship 1, 2 and 3.

The little west country girls

feeling an emptiness

that only her real dad can fill.

No.1 didn’t work

No.2 didn’t work

No.3 didn’t work

They could not be dad

They could not fill this hole

This black hole in my heart.

Now at 22,

I must remember

What it is like to be me,

me, miss D.

The girl who used to be full of confidence

The girl who was so driven

The girl who needed no-one

but herself.

The girl who followed her dreams.

No. 1 is my close friend

No. 2 was my first love

No. 3 is the one I hope to remain in my life for eternity…but if not

No. 3 taught me to love him and be there for those closest.

And for that No. 3

Thank You.

The Break…up. ©

I broke his heart

I broke mine

We were once one

but now are two

We loved and cared

but I brought dispair

I broke his heart

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 times

I loved him

I still love him

I know my love will last all time

But all I know

is we are not meant to be

no, not me and he

We are meant for others

other people who need

to learn the meaning

of love

long, strong, caring love.

I hope one day

He will write

and tell me all of his achievements.

He is destined for greatness

more than he can imagine.

I hope we will

become good friends

friends to last all time

but right now

we need space,

he needs to mend his heart

be with someone

who will not

break his no more

And I need to repair

my heart

to learn to love myself,

me, myself and I

I need to love myself

once again.
