The thing about Taylor Swift lyrics, is that I can’t help but sing along and very loudly, might I add. In the shower, in the car, in the grocery store, whilst shopping online for maxi dresses and swimwear….. it doesn’t matter. The girl can write, and her lyrics hit that chord. You know the one — the “wow-that’s-totally-my-life-right-now chord.” Relating to lyrics is fun, and also therapeutic (Hello, Wrecking Ball all day). Lyrics teach us lessons and move us through difficult times, so this is why Taylor Swift is a lyrical master. Check out some of the best lyrical lessons taught by Ms. Swift.
1) “We are never getting back together. Like, ever.”
This one just cracks me up because it’s a really awesome line. Every time you get that text from your ex, you know the one. Where they say hi out of nowhere and you know it’s because they just broke up with their significant other and are lonely. Just jot these lyrical gems down and send away.
2) “Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine.”
This line is wonderfully empowering for young women. Many times people, females more often, get too attached in their relationships and make their significant other their entire world. What Swift is trying to say, is that while your relationship may be important to you, it shouldn’t be your only dream. Maintain your individuality and keep your own goals and dreams in your scope.
3) “We’re on the phone and without a warning
I realize your laugh is the best sound
I have ever heard”
Swoon. Girl can sing about love all day, it isn’t only about heartbreak. Just picture hearing that special someone laugh, and how sometimes it is the greatest thing to soothe your soul.
4) “I could stand up and sing you a song,
But I don’t wanna have to go that far.”
Empowerment to the Nth degree. We’ve all had those relationships where we are fed up and start loving ourselves more. There’s so much that could be done in the relationship, yet you just don’t want to do it anymore.
5) “I’ve found that time can heal most anything
& you just might find who you’re supposed to be.”
Time does heal mostly everything. So don’t give up. Better things are normally in store.
6) “It feels like a perfect night
To dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes
It feels like a perfect night
For breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers”
This song is super fun and reminds me of being single and hanging out with girlfriends, just being silly and comfortable with one another. One of those nights where anything and everything can happen. Those are the ones to create the best memories.
7) “Yeah, we’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about the deadlines, it’s time”
Happy, free, confused and lonely. Hello, twenties. And maybe thirties. Ahem.
8) “I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground”
We’ve all had those relationships where we know exactly what we’re getting into, and know that it is bad news, but we do it anyway. Thanks for reminding us why that’s always a bad idea, Swift. NEVER IGNORE THE RED FLAGS.
9) “There you’ll stand, ten feet tall
I will say, ‘I knew it all along.’
Your eyes–wider than distance
This life–sweeter than fiction.
I dedicated this song to my best friend because it is really adorable. It’s about overcoming obstacles and the difficult times in life and having that friend that you know will be successful down the line. You are proud to call them a friend.
