Lyrics Pronunciation -> Latest Entries

Taylor Swift's, "Blank Space"
The Lyrics:
Got a long list of ex-lovers
I couldn’t make sense of this line until I read the lyrics. That’s because of the peculiar way she’s stressing words. Instead of stressing the prefix “ex-” of “ex-lovers”, she’s stressing the preposition “of”, which wouldn’t usually be stressed.

The Postal Service's, "Nothing Better"
The Lyrics:
Tell me am I right to think that there could be nothing better
Than making you my wife and slowly growing old together.
Don't you feed me lines about some idealistic future.
Your heart won't heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures.
A man is in love with a woman and desperately wants her to stay, but she leaves him.
