Taylor Swift - Cruel Summer

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 1]
Fever dream high in the quiet of the night
You know that I caught it (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)
Bad, bad boy, shiny toy with a price
You know that I bought it (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)

Killing me slow, out the window
I'm always waiting for you to be waiting below
Devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes
What doesn't kill me makes me want you more

And it's new, the shape of your body
It's blue, the feeling I've got
And it's ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
It's cool, that's what I tell 'em
No rules in breakable heaven
But ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
With you

"Cruel Summer" is about a tumultuous relationship between two people, set against a summer backdrop. The lyrics tell the story of someone who is desperately in love, who has to sneak away from their protective family to be with their love, and how that love is both exhilarating and painful. Despite the feeling of uncertainty and potential hurt, the singer is hopeful that their love will conquer even the most difficult odds and that their relationship will survive. The chorus, "It's a cruel summer / But I'll tell 'em it's cool", serves as a metaphor for the relationships complexity, as the singer seeks comfort in the idea that, despite everything, their love is worth it.
