    The Best And Worst Songs On Taylor Swift's "Folklore"

    If "my tears ricochet" is not in your top five, you're wrong.

    Taylor Swift's eighth studio album Folklore came out a few weeks ago, and I've been listening to it ever since.

    It's one of Taylor's best albums; every song is amazing. But...which ones are the best? Below, I rank all 17 songs from Folklore!

    17. "Peace"

    BEST LYRIC:
All these people think love's for show
But I would die for you in secret

    16. "Seven"

    BEST LYRIC:
And I've been meaning to tell you
I think your house is haunted
Your dad is always mad and that must be why

    15. "August"

    BEST LYRIC:
Second, third, and hundredth chances
Balancin' on breaking branches
Those eyes add insult to injury

    14. "Exile"

    BEST LYRIC:
Second, third, and hundredth chances
Balancin' on breaking branches
Those eyes add insult to injury

    13. "Cardigan"

    BEST LYRIC: You drew stars around my scars but now I'm bleeding

    12. "The 1"

    BEST LYRIC: 
You know the greatest loves of all time are over now

    11. "The Lakes"

    BEST LYRIC: 
 Take me to the Lakes where all the poets went to die
I don't belong and,  my beloved,  neither do you

    10. "The Last Great American Dynasty"

    BEST LYRIC:
She had a marvelous time ruining everything

    9. "Invisible String"

    BEST LYRIC: Something wrapped all of my past mistakes in barbed wire
Chains around my demons
Wool to brave the seasons
One single thread of gold
Tied me to you

    8. "Mirrorball"

    BEST LYRIC: You are not like the regulars
The masquerade revelers
Drunk as they watch my shattered edges glisten

    7. "This Is Me Trying"

    
BEST LYRIC: They told me all of my cages were mental
So I got wasted like all my potential
And my words shoot to kill when I'm mad
I have a lot of regrets about that

    6. "Mad Woman"

    5. "Illicit Affairs"

    BEST LYRIC:  Take the words for what they are
A dwindling, mercurial high
A drug that only worked
The first few hundred times

    4. "Hoax"

    BEST LYRIC: You knew it still hurts underneath my scars
From when they pulled me apart
But what you did was just as dark

    3. "Betty"

    BEST LYRIC:  I'm only 17, I don't know anything

    2. "Epiphany"

    BEST LYRIC:  Something med school did not cover
Someone's daughter, someone's mother
Holds your hand through plastic now
"Doc, I think she's crashing out"
And some things you just can't speak about

    1. "My Tears Ricochet"

    BEST LYRIC: And I still talk to you (When I'm screaming at the sky)
And when you can't sleep at night (You hear my stolen lullabies)
