8 Best Taylor Swift Lyrics


I was bored and searching my Facebook and up comes a blog post of the 8 Most Annoying Taylor Swift Lyrics. Now I agree that the ones listed are pretty dumb and kind of annoying (except the Tuesday one, because I love Tuesdays) but I think it should really be called the 8 Most Annoying and Rude Comments About Taylor Swift's Annoying Song Lyrics. Seriously, I was sad for Taylor because that was just rude.

So, as my rebuttal, I'm making the list of my 8 favorite Taylor Swift Lyrics!! Because she needs some support somewhere, and I'm happy to give her some. (even if RED disappointed me)

SO HERE'S TO EVERYTHING COMING DOWN TO NOTHING. HERE'S TO SILENCE THAT CUTS ME TO THE CORE. WHERE IS THIS GOING? I THOUGHT I KNEW FOR A MINUTE BUT I DON'T ANYMORE.

Okay, I only really love these lyrics the way I do in the piano version. So here it is for your enjoyment:


See? Isn't that version so much better? I love it so much more than the real version because piano is my favorite instrument and it "cuts me to the core". When I was having major boy issues, I listened to this song/version constantly, and the line above is exactly how I felt. I thought I knew what was going on, and in a minute everything changed. I also love in this version the way she sings "Back up, baby back up, please back up!" Because it's so sadly-hauntingly beautiful.

DID SOME THINGS YOU CAN'T SPEAK OF, BUT AT NIGHT YOU LIVE IT ALL AGAIN. YOU WOULDN'T BE SHATTERED ON THE FLOOR NOW IF ONLY YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN WHAT YOU KNOW NOW THEN... WHO YOU ARE IS NOT WHAT YOU DID, YOU'RE STILL AN INNOCENT. 

This song was also criticized in the other article and I actually love this song. It's probably one of her most mature songs. It talks about how the mistakes you've made before do not make you who you are. This song was fantastic for me for some things that I went through and the above lines hit me pretty hard. "Who you are is not what you did." Just because I made mistakes, I am not my mistakes. I can be a better person regardless.

I KNOW, I KNOW, I JUST KNOW YOU'RE NOT GONE. YOU CAN'T BE GONE, NO.

This is another one where I only love the lyrics with a certain version of the song. Found here:


Yep... The way she sings the above lyrics in this version of the song gives me chills! This is actually my favorite Taylor Swift song, this version particularly. I like all the lyrics personally. Because I've been there. I've been in that relationship before and it's terrible and they really do haunt you forever.

YOU HAD ME CRAWLING FOR YOU HONEY AND IT NEVER WOULD HAVE GONE AWAY, NO. YOU USED TO SHINE SO BRIGHT BUT I WATCHED ALL OF IT FADE.

So... anyone who really knows me, knows that I am IN LOVE with sad and depressing song. Much like all the ones I've listed above. You're Not Sorry is a beautiful sad song and the lyrics are wonderful. I don't care what anyone else has to say.

DON'T YOU DARE LOOK OUT YOUR WINDOW, DARLING EVERYTHING'S ON FIRE. THE WAR OUTSIDE OUR DOOR KEEPS RAGING ON. HOLD ON TO THIS LULLABY, EVEN WHEN THE MUSIC'S GONE. 

Ah! I love Hunger Games! This song (even though I got sick of it for a while) is a very hauntingly beautiful song. It was perfect for the movie (I personally am in love with the whole Hunger Games soundtrack). The above lyrics portray Katniss's fear and protection for her sister. I love it so much!

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BREAK UP, FIX MY HEART, PUT ON MY MAKEUP, ANOTHER MESS I DIDN'T PLAN. AND I BET YOU THOUGHT YOU BEAT ME, WISH YOU COULD ONLY SEE I'VE GOT AN I HEART QUESTION MARK WRITTEN ON THE BACK OF MY HAND.

Okay, some of you may not know this song, I don't have a copy of this song, I've just heard it on Youtube. So if you haven't heard it, here it is:


This song is funny and cheesy, but I love cheesy. And the above lyrics aren't bad or annoying. They are just like "Hey, you can't beat me, I'll be fine, there's always another one." It's funny. Not annoying. And not depressing like all the other songs I listed. :)

THIS IS A STATE OF GRACE. THIS IS THE WORTHWHILE FIGHT. LOVE IS A RUTHLESS GAME UNLESS YOU PLAY IT GOOD AND RIGHT. THESE ARE THE HANDS OF FATE, YOU'RE MY ACHILLES HEEL. THIS IS THE GOLDEN AGE OF SOMETHING GOOD AND RIGHT AND REAL. 

This is my favorite song off Taylor's new album. And I like the acoustic version too, but it's really slow. The above lyrics, I think, are beautiful and true. They are filled with wisdom of what love really is. It is a "worthwhile fight". Everything I went through was worth it to find Chris. :)

AND WHEN YOUR FIFTEEN DON'T FORGET TO LOOK BEFORE YOU FALL. I FOUND TIME CAN HEAL MOST ANYTHING. YOU MIGHT JUST FIND WHO YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE. I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AT FIFTEEN. 

I think that this song gives excellent advice to fifteen year-olds. Teenagers take everything way too seriously and make things more dramatic than it really is. They want to be popular and date all the cool boys, but that's not what's important in life. Just take in each moment and make it wonderful. You'll move on from your silly crushes and the stresses of high school. Life goes on. This song is wonderful.

Well, there you have it. A few of Taylor Swifts redeeming lyrics. But trust me, she has more. Yes she writes immature lyrics sometimes (We are never, ever, ever...) but really it's a joke. I don't think she's really serious about them. Watch an interview of her, she is sort of a ditzy blonde, but she's still pretty smart too. And very elegant. I have a special place in my heart for Taylor Swift because we're close to the same age, her lyrics relate to her growing up and I'm growing up right along with her. She does have weird and sometimes annoying lyrics, but it really bugged me that the other article had to be so mean about it.

So to the author of the article 8 Most Annoying Taylor Swift Lyrics, please don't be rude. I agree that the lyrics you posted are pretty annoying, but you don't have to be mean about it.
