Jim Adams has a breezy list of tropical prompts today courtesy of Kristian. I chose Taylor Swift’s ”Coney Island,” a lovely but sad song which questions why a relationship ended, from both perspectives. Taylor, along with others, wrote the song for her 2020 album Nevermore.
“Coney Island” received mixed reception, but I like it a lot for its wistful tone and storytelling, not to mention Taylor’s beautiful voice.
And I’m sitting on a bench in Coney Island
Wondering where did my baby go?
The fast times, the bright lights, the merry go
Sorry for not making you my centerfold
Over and over
Lost again with no surprises
Disappointments, close your eyes
And it gets colder and colder
When the sun goes down…
