    "lover"-cover is sooooooo much better with Dermot Kennedys version. I madly love the orchestra parallel to Dermots singing.

    Slowly ignoring people who like to diminish Taylor's talent and come here just to say, "I don't like the original version, but this one is amazing."

    I feel like i can never hear taylors version of lover because it won't measure up to Dermot.

    The love of my life, whom I've literally loved for three summers is moving from Washington state (US) to Florida (US) and I can't go with him. I have family here, including a pre-teen son. He has family there, including his first born son. The first half, Lover... That's exactly how I feel, but there's nothing I can do about it. I realize TS wrote this, but Dermott sang it with the depth of emotion I am feeling. I'm blown away!

    i never really appreciate Taylors songwriting when shes singing her songs with all the bubblegum pop facade around it, but she is seriously a lyrical genius

      @evilelfracer Taylor wrote this completely by herself on the piano and Jack just helped her with the production :)) just a lil' fact check

    We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
    This is our place, we make the rules
    And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
    Have I known you 20 seconds or 20 years?
    Can I go where you go?
    Can we always be this close forever and ever?
    And ah, take me out, and take me home
    You're my, my, my, my lover
    [Verse 2]
    We could let our friends crash in the living room
    This is our place, we make the call
    And I'm highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you
    I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all
    Can I go where you go?
    Can we always be this close forever and ever?
    And ah, take me out, and take me home (Forever and ever)
    You're my, my, my, my lover

      That naughty look he gives to the band 2:42, knowing he will cause some reaction by choosing a kanye west song after a TS song, is EVERYTHING!!!!!!! I love Taylor and I love
