WRNEGBT is her first single topping Billboard hot 100 for 3 wks • The meaning of the title: • “All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. All those emotions — spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that — in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings."
Lyrics of songs from Red • And I never saw you coming • And I’ll never be the same • From state of grace • Losing him was blue, like I’ve never knownMissing him was dark grey, all aloneForgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never metBut loving him was red • From red • And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid. • I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny. • Cause he never did. • I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does. • Is break and burn and end. • But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again. • From begin again
END • Thank you
