The Minnesota Association of Songwriters issued a writing challenge this January to “borrow” conceptually from a writer that has influenced our writing to create a new original work of our own. Once you hear this, I think you’ll get the idea I picked…. She’s always had a way with telling it like it is!!!!

END THIS DRIFT (Taylor Swift)

Verse 1
I called to tell you something
It was so important to me
In seconds it was all about you
What you know, what I’m too dumb to see

Verse 2
I’m not the first to be neglected
By one who just can’t see the trees
Writers have used this for ages
Their lyrics break our hearts and bend our knees

Pre-Chorus
So, if Taylor was going to sing-along
With my song about this love gone wrong
Would it help to make the end come Swift
Would her voice be the backup
That would end this drift

Chorus
End this drift
End this drift
Taylor Swift
Help me, End this drift
End this drift
End this drift
Taylor Swift
Help me, End this drift

Verse 3
I’m not here to be your mirror
Or here to make you feel alive
If you can’t see beyond yourself
I won’t be part of your selfish life
