Taylor Swift Anti-Hero

Anti-Hero Lyrics – Taylor Swift


Anti-Hero” is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift and the lead single from her tenth studio album, Midnights (2022). Written and produced by Swift and Jack Antonoff, “Anti-Hero” is a pop rock and synth-pop song driven by looped drums and retro synthesizers. Its lyrics discuss self-loathing, depression and anxiety. Made available for digital download on October 21, 2022, the song was serviced to US hot adult contemporary radio on October 24, followed by contemporary hit radio on October 25, by Republic Records.

The song was inspired by Swift’s nightmares, and her issues with depersonalization and self-hatred, critiquing her shortcomings and societal pressures. Music critics acclaimed the song for its direct lyricism, catchy rhythm, synth-based instrumentation, and vocal tones, with Billboard ranking it as the best song on Midnights. An accompanying music video for the song, written and directed by Swift, premiered on October 21 as well. It depicts Swift’s fears, insecurities, and eating disorder, using three different incarnations of her. The video also reenacts one of her nightmares about her legacy and last will, casting Mike BirbigliaJohn Early and Mary Elizabeth Ellis as Swift’s future family.

“Anti-Hero” broke the global and US records for the biggest opening-day streams for a song in Spotify history. It reached the top 10 of the official charts in 38 territories, peaking at number one in Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, the United Kingdom, as well as the United States where it marked Swift’s ninth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and made her the only soloist ever to debut five songs atop the chart. Ultimately, “Anti-Hero” topped the Billboard Global 200 as well. A remix featuring Antonoff’s band Bleachers was released on November 7, 2022.

Lyrics

I have this thing where I get older but just never wiser
Midnights become my afternoons
When my depression works the graveyard shift
All of the people I’ve ghosted stand there in the room

I should not be left to my own devices
They come with prices and vices
I end up in crises
Tale as old as time
I wake up screaming from dreaming
One day I’ll watch as you’re leaving
‘Cause you got tired of my scheming
For the last time

It’s me
Hi!
I’m the problem, it’s me
At teatime
Everybody agrees
I’ll stare directly at the sun but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

Sometimes I feel like everybody is a sexy baby
And I’m a monster on the hill
Too big to hang out
Slowly lurching toward your favorite city
Pierced through the heart but never killed

Did you hear my covert narcissism
I disguise as altruism
Like some kind of congressman
Tale as old as time
I wake up screaming from dreaming
One day I’ll watch as you’re leaving
And life will lose all its meaning

For the last time

It’s me
Hi!
I’m the problem, it’s me (I’m the problem, it’s me)
At teatime
Everybody agrees
I’ll stare directly at the sun but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

I have this dream my daughter-in-law kills me for the money
She thinks I left them in the will
The family gathers ’round and reads it
And then someone screams out
“She’s laughing up at us from hell!”

It’s me
Hi!
I’m the problem, it’s me
It’s me
Hi!

I’m the problem, it’s me

It’s me
Hi!
Everybody agrees
Everybody agrees

It’s me
Hi! (Hi!)
I’m the problem, it’s me (I’m the problem, it’s me)
At teatime

Everybody agrees (everybody agrees)
I’ll stare directly at the sun but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero
