Taylor Swift “You Need To Calm Down” Lyrics

By  | 

Taylor Swift releases the second track “You Need To Calm Down” off of her upcoming seventh studio album, Lover.

Verse 1:
You are somebody that I don’t know
But you’re takin’ shots at me like it’s patron
And I’m just like damn it’s 7 AM
Say it in the street, that’s a knock-out
But you say it in a Tweet, that’s a cop-out
And I’m just like, “Hey, are you okay?”

And I ain’t tryin’ mess with your self-expression
But I’ve learned a lesson that stressin’ and obsessin’ ’bout somebody else is no fun
And snakes and stones never broke my bones

So uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
And I’m like uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh
You need to just stop, like can you just not step on my gown?
You need to calm down

Verse 2:
You are somebody that we don’t know
But you’re comin’ at my friends like a missile
Why are you mad when you could be glad?
(You could be glad)
Sunshine on the street at the parade
But you would rather be in the dark age
Just makin’ that sign must’ve taken all night

You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
And control your urges to scream about the people you hate
‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay

Repeat Chorus


And we see you over there on the internet
Comparing all the girls who are killing it
But we figured you out
We all know now we all got crowns
You need to calm down

Repeat Chorus
