Drivers license

Olivia Rodrigo

Drivers license es el single debut con Geffen Records de la estadounidense Olivia Rodrigo.

Compuesto por Rodrigo, compartió un clip del tema en Instagram durante el verano boreal de 2020 obteniendo una gran reacción de sus seguidores, lo que la llevó a meterse en el estudio junto al co-autor, Dan Nigro (Conan Gray, Lewis Capaldi, Carly Rae Jepsen), para terminar "drivers license".

Con un video dirigido por Matthew Dillon Cohen (Ashe, Hinds, Gus Dapperton), el clip es un vívido retrato de Rodrigo, mientras conduce sin rumbo, y habla con nostalgia sobre su ex, un sentimiento que Rodrigo refleja en la reflexiva letra con precisión ("You said forever, now I drive alone past your street"). Estreno 7 de enero de 2021.

Para Rodrigo, una de las mayores alegrías de la vida ha surgido de hurgar en su desamor. "Cuando compuse 'drivers license', tenía el corazón partido y resultaba muy confuso y complejo", recuerda Rodrigo. "Poner todos esos sentimientos en una sola canción me ayudó a clarificar la mente y, al final, creo que ese es el verdadero propósito de la composición. No hay nada como sentarse al piano de mi habitación y componer una canción triste. Es lo que más me gusta del mundo".


EP debut
Olivia tiene previsto lanzar su EP de debut compuesto durante la cuarentena por la Covid-19 a finales de 2021. Se anuncia como una colección de canciones de pop alternativo y piano que sirve de presentación de la honesta narrativa de Olivia.

Letra

I got my driver's license last week
Just like we always talked about
'Cause you were so excited for me
To finally drive up to your house
But today I drove through the suburbs
Crying 'cause you weren't around

And you're probably with that blonde girl
Who always made me doubt
She's so much older than me
She's everything I'm insecure about
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
'Cause how could I ever love someone else?

And I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

And all my friends are tired
Of hearing how much I miss you, but
I kinda feel sorry for them
'Cause they'll never know you the way that I do, yeah
Today I drove through the suburbs
And pictured I was driving home to you

And I know we weren't perfect
But I've never felt this way for no one, oh
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay, now that I'm gone
I guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

Red lights, stop signs
I still see your face in the white cars, front yards
Can't drive past the places we used to go to
'Cause I still fuckin' love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Sidewalks we crossed
I still hear your voice in the traffic, we're laughing
Over all the noise
God, I'm so blue, know we're through
But I still fuckin' love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay, now that I'm gone
'Cause you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street
Yeah, you said forever, now I drive alone past your street
