Sweet Things Lyrics

Evil knocking at my door
Evil making me its whore
I don't mind if you take what's yours, but give me mine

Evil wants you to know,
I'm much too young to be owned.
I don't mind if you take what's yours, but give me mine.

Hey there, little...

    I disagree with the idea that it's about a little boy because of the reference to drag makeup. That's all about the heavy makeup used on child actors. The entire song is about the acting industry and what it does to children. There's a reason Taylor stopped acting, and it wasn't because she didn't have the looks or the talent.

    I always thought it was about Taylor’s time as a child actor, which she hated, it always kinda made sense to me, but I can definitely see some of the other interpretations too

    I think it intuprates the process of what a child goes through in a relationship with a pedophile staring a little weary and unsure. To being convinced it's a mutual decision and they are the same. Then lastly showing the need for the pedophiles approval in the end due to the child being reliant on the phedophile for self worth or gratification.

    I think it's kinda about drugs and devil and stuff. The song is the best I've ever heard

    It's about a little boy - seeing as the man used the phrase drag-queen, and drag queens are men who dress up as women - who is being manipulated by the older man, abused into believing that he is his knight.. or his ''savior'' as the song said. It's dark and twisted, but, the song is KILLER and AMAZING.

    Her struggle making it in a evil male dominated music world. The song is awesome.
