champagne problems Lyrics – Taylor Swift: Presenting the lyrics of the song “champagne problems” from the Album evermore (deluxe version) sung by Taylor Swift. This song is produced by Taylor Swift & Aaron Dessner.
“champagne problems” tells the story of a woman who shocks her would-be fiancé and their loved ones by turning down a marriage proposal right before Christmas. In an essay about evermore, Swift stated that the song depicts “longtime college sweethearts [who] had very different plans for the same night, one to end it and one who brought a ring.”
The song implies that the protagonist has a history of mental illness, which the town subsequently stigmatizes in their gossip surrounding the failed proposal. Mental health is a topic especially personal to Swift, who has been transparent publicly about her own struggles. As quoted in an interview with the Zach Sang show.
champagne problems Lyrics – Taylor Swift
You booked the night train for a reasonSo you could sit there in this hurtBustling crowds or silent sleepersYou’re not sure which is worseBecause I dropped your hand while dancingLeft you out there standingCrestfallen on the landingChampagne problemsYour mom’s ring in your pocketMy picture in your walletYour heart was glass, I dropped itChampagne problemsYou told your family for a reasonYou couldn’t keep it inYour sister splashed out on the bottleNow no one’s celebratingDom Pérignon, you brought itNo crowd of friends applaudedYour hometown skeptics called itChampagne problemsYou had a speech, you’re speechlessLove slipped beyond your reachesAnd I couldn’t give a reasonChampagne problemsYour Midas touch on the Chevy doorNovember flush and your flannel cure“This dorm was once a madhouse”I made a joke, “Well, it’s made for me”How evergreen, our group of friendsDon’t think we’ll say that word againAnd soon they’ll have the nerve to deck the hallsThat we once walked throughOne for the money, two for the showI never was ready so I watch you goSometimes you just don’t know the answer‘Til someone’s on their knees and asks you“She would’ve made such a lovely brideWhat a shame she’s fucked in the head,” they saidBut you’ll find the real thing insteadShe’ll patch up your tapestry that I shredAnd hold your hand while dancingNever leave you standingCrestfallen on the landingWith champagne problemsYour mom’s ring in your pocketHer picture in your walletYou won’t remember all myChampagne problemsYou won’t remember all myChampagne problems
