Hello! I'm Aline and I'm obsessed with Taylor Swift (kinda obvious since I have a collection dedicated only to to her)

Feel free to follow if you also admire this incredible artist and woman

This is the third of a series of articles I'm going to post about Taylor's songs (if you still haven't, you can check the first one right here http://weheartit.com/articles/296145371-look-what-you-made-me-do and the second one here http://weheartit.com/articles/296427621-ready-for-it).
Today I've decided to write a different article. Instead of analyzing one of Taylor's songs, I'll make a compilation of lyrics from different songs that are similar or connected to each other. Hope you'll enjoy!

1. Dancing

Taylor referred to dancing as a demonstration of love in her early albums. However, on 1989 she was happy to be dancing alone. It was like a statement: you CAN be single and be happy about it! You don't need a partner to dance with to enjoy life. Check it out:

Before...
"But when you think: Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favorite song, the one we danced to all night long" (Tim McGraw - 2006)
"With you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress" (Fearless - 2008)
"I'm not much for dancing, but for you I did" (Last Kiss - 2010)
"In the middle of the night we're dancing round the kitchen in the refrigerator light" (All Too Well - 2012)
"I don't want to dance if I’m not dancing with you" (Holy Ground - 2012)

After...
"I'm dancing on my own, I'll make the moves up as I go" (Shake It Off - 2014)
"It’s a new soundtrack, I could dance to this beat forevermore " (Welcome To New York - 2014)
"We are too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet" (New Romantics - 2014)

2. Green eyes

Green eyes is a recurrent theme in Taylor's songs. Maybe she feels particularly inspired by green-eyed boys, I don't know. But what I do know is that 'green eyes' have given us AMAZING lyrics, like these ones:

"Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down. Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around" (Sparks Fly)
"And all I’ve seen since 18 hours ago is green eyes and freckles
and your smile in the back of my mind"
(Everything Has Changed)
"In the dead of night, your eyes so green" (I Know Places)
"Didn't you flash your green eyes at me?" (Wonderland)

3. 2 a.m.

Taylor has a thing for this time of night. Do a lot of things in her life happen around 2 a.m. or is it just a good lyric? Come to your own conclusion:

"2 a.m. riding in your truck and all I need is you next to me" (Mary's Song)
"It's 2 a.m. and I'm cursing your name" (The Way I Loved You)
"It's 2 a.m., feelin' like I just lost a friend" (Breathe)
"I still remember the look on your face lit through the darkness at 1:58" (Last Kiss)
"The lingering question kept me up, 2 a.m., 'who do you love?' I wonder till I'm wide awake" (Enchanted)
"And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m." (Mine)
"It's 2 a.m., in your car, windows down, pass my street, the memories start. (...) It's 2 a.m., in my room, headlights pass the window pane, I think of you" (I Wish You Would)

4. Picking fights

Young love is a bit turbulent sometimes. And Taylor has admitted many times in her songs that she's a bit feisty and almost enjoy those moments when things aren't so pretty.

"So I start a fight 'cause I need to feel something" (Cold As You)
"But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain" (The Way I Loved You)
"And I scream out the window: 'I can't even look at you, I don't need you' but I do, I do, I do" (The Other Side Of The Door)
"I'm really gonna miss you picking fights and me falling for a screaming that I'm right" (We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together)

Well... that's it for now! There are many other twin lyrics I can talk about, but I don't want to make this too long. I'll write a 'Part 2' when I can. Hope you enjoyed this article, it was very fun to write!
