Things You Can Learn About Ryan Adams From the Lyrics He Changes or Leaves Out in 1989

Or what he chooses to leave in.
  1. 1.
    He isn't attracted to James Dean and he doesn't wear red lipstick
    "You've got that Daydream Nation look in your eye/I got that pent up love thing that you like."
  2. 2.
    His love interest is a brunette and he likes tight butts (and he cannot lie). Oh Ryan you pervert.
    "You've got that long brown hair thing that I like/you've got that good girl faith and ass so tight"
  3. 3.
    He too has a long list of ex lovers who will tell you he's insane. He too loves the players. He too has a blank space in which he will write your name.
  4. 4.
    He doesn't perceive himself to be a nightmare dressed like a daydream
  5. 5.
    He doesn't think he can make the bad guys good for a weekend :(
  6. 6.
    He doesn't perceive himself to be young
    "So goddamn reckless, we'll take this way too far"
  7. 7.
    He doesn't believe that while you were getting down and out about the liars and the dirty dirty cheats of the world you could have been getting down to this sick beat
  8. 8.
    His love interest is "handsome"
    "She's so tall, and handsome as hell" ...he could have changed this to "pretty" but intentionally didn't
  9. 9.
    I like to imagine that when he sings bad blood its about someone who truly wronged him--maybe a friend who slept with his mom or killed his mom or something like that. But it could be some high school bullshit who knows?
