‘August’, Taylor Swift’s mythical love song to welcome the month of August – Music

Welcome August! We have already started the eighth month of this 2022 and, as usual, in CHAIN ​​100 we like to save some themes that refer to the months of the year. Songs with which we all feel identified and ‘August’, by Taylor Swiftis just the ideal song because its title, ‘August’, says it all. From their eighth studio album, ‘Folklore’which launched on July 24, 2020. Today is the perfect day to remember that!

The Story Behind Taylor Swift’s “August”

A few days ago was the second anniversary of ‘Folklore’. The eighth album by the American artist -with an album of platinum in america for selling one million copies-, written and produced by herself with Jack Antonoff and Joe Alwyn. The song, along with two other songs from the album, ‘Cardigan’ and ‘Betty’constitute and fictional love triangle with Betty, James and a character with an unknown name. Precisely this theme is written from the latter’s point of view and speaks of his disappointment in love with James. This is not the first time that we tell you that Taylor Swift has songs for everything and this is further proof of it. As the song says, “August was lost in an instant, because he was never mine…”



The lyrics and melody have been highly praised by critics from prestigious music magazines, such as rolling stonewho said “it was the most beautiful ballad on the album” or Los Angeles Times, who called it “the shift from pure subjectivity to first person” when it comes to fictional narratives. And it is that Taylor Swift, beyond being a performer, is a writer-musician who masters the language to perfection and who always fascinates her followers. She does not disappoint, this is her in her purest form. He even got a deserved 23rd position on the list Billboard Hot 100 and the 5th position in Billboard Hot rock and alternative songs. As well as topping the charts in various countries, such as Canada, Australia, Singapore, and Malaysia. How could it be otherwise, he interpreted it at the gala of the Grammys 2021 and eclipsed them all.



Lyrics translated from ‘August’ by Taylor Swift

The salty air and the rust on your door

I never needed anything else

Whispers saying: Are you sure?

i have never done it before

But I can see us lost in our memories

August was lost in an instant

because it was never mine

And I can see us tangled in the sheets

August is over like a bottle of wine

because you were never mine

your back under the sun

I wish I could write my name on it

Will you call when you get back to school?

I remember thinking you were mine

But I can see us lost in our memories

August was lost in an instant

because it was never mine

And I can see us tangled in the sheets

August is over like a bottle of wine

because you were never mine

At that time we were still changing for the better

wanting was enough

for me it was enough

Live for the hope of everything

I canceled the plans, just in case you call

And you said, Meet me at the back of the mall

It’s too much for a summer love and say a we

‘Cause you weren’t mine to lose

You weren’t mine to lose

But I can see us lost in our memories

August was lost in an instant

because it was never mine

And I can see us tangled in the sheets

August is over like a bottle of wine

because you were never mine

because you were never mine

you were never mine

But do you remember?

Do you remember when I pulled up and said get in the car

And then I canceled my plans, just in case you called?

At that time I was living

For the hope of it all

Meet me at the back of the mall

Do you remember when I pulled up and said get in the car

And then I canceled my plans, just in case you called? (x3)
