Dorothea Lyrics – Taylor Swift: Presenting the lyrics of the song “Dorothea” from the Album evermore (deluxe version) sung by Taylor Swift. This song is produced by Aaron Dessner.
Taylor Swift referred to the titular character as a “girl who left her small town to chase down Hollywood dreams.” “tis the damn season” is likely the story of her return back home for the holidays.
“Dorothea” itself seems to be told from the point of view of an old hometown lover.
Taylor has clarified the Dorothea narrative is “not a direct continuation of the betty/James/august storyline, but in [her] mind Dorothea went to the same school as Betty, James, and Inez.”
dorothea Lyrics – Taylor Swift
Hey, Dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?When we were younger down in the parkHoney, making a lark of the miseryYou got shiny friends since you left townA tiny screen’s the only place I see you nowAnd I got nothing but well-wishes for yaOoh, this place is the same as it ever wasOoh, but you don’t like it that wayIt’s never too late to come back to my sideThe stars in your eyes shined brighter in TupeloAnd if you’re ever tired of bеing known for who you knowYou know, you’ll always know me, Dorothea (Uh-uh)Dorothea (Ah-ah)Ooh, you’rе a queen sellin’ dreams, sellin’ makeup and magazinesOoh, from you I’d buy anythingHey, Dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?When it was calmer, skipping the prom just to piss off your mom and her pageant schemesAnd damn, Dorothea, they all wanna be yaBut are you still the same soul I met under the bleachers? Well…Ooh, I guess I’ll never knowOoh, and you’ll go on with the showBut it’s never too late to come back to my sideThe stars in your eyes shined brighter in TupeloAnd if you’re ever tired of being known for who you knowYou know, you’ll always know me, Dorothea (Uh-uh)Dorothea (Ah-ah)Ooh, oohOoh-woo-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-oohOoh, oohOoh-woo-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-oohDorothea (Ah-ah-ah)Ah-ahOoh
