I'll probably do this again when Red (Taylor's Version) comes out, which I am very excited about. I think it's a little cruel that we have to wait five months although that might be the normal album wait and I'm just used to the quick album drop like with folklore and evermore.

Anyway, to tire me over I'm doing Fearless (TV) and all my favourite lyrics which will include vault tracks.

I don't know why but with you I'd dance,
In a storm in my best dress
rain, love, and couple image grunge, indie, and tumblr image
fearless (taylor's version)

I love the idea of dancing in a storm, and it's probably one of the more memorable lines as it's from the chorus.

Back then I thought I was going to marry him someday
But I realised some bigger dreams of mine
accessories, style, and diamonds image Taylor Swift and fearless image
fifteen (taylor's version)

I love this because it makes me think about how taylor swift achieved her dream, and how it's rare to marry your first love and that there are much more important things in life.

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashbacks start
Taylor Swift image dress image
love story (taylor's version)

The "flashbacks" mentioned hark after how in the music video, when taylor sees the boy at the beginning and then we see romeo and Juliet, it's not her schoolgirl imagination, it's them in a past life. "Flashbacks" are mentioned in "Red": "flashbacks and echoes". It always makes me think of that fact since I found it out.

All those other girls, well, they're beautiful
But would they write a song for you? (Ha, ha)

hey stephen (taylor's version)

This is so cheeky and I love the little laugh at the end. It kind of sums up how Taylor is known for writing songs about her personal life and how she draws inspiration from all sorts of things.

This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rear-view mirror disappearing now
lipstick, makeup, and car image clouds, sky, and road image
white horse (taylor's version)

I like the idea of her past disappearing behind her, like she's moving on to be bigger and better things (which she did). I also like the parallel of "this is a small town" to "that was a small town".

I remember you driving to my house, in the middle of the night
I'm the one that makes you laugh, when you know you 'bout to cry

you belong with me (taylor's version)

It's the bridge, that's why I love it! Taylor swift is the best at bridges!

It's two am
Feelin' like I just lost a friend

breathe (taylor's version)

It's 2am taylor swift time again. Seriously sweetheart go to sleep! Iconic!

I took a chance, I took a shot
And you might think I'm bulletproof but I'm not
online gambling and red dog casino image gun image
tell me why (taylor's version)

Once again there's parallels with "I told you i'm not bulletproof, now you know". It's a very powerful when to open up the song.

Could've loved you all my life
If you hadn't left me waiting in the cold

you're not sorry (taylor's version)

I love sad stuff lol. Pretty meaningful too!

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And it's 2:00 a.m. and I'm cursing your name
movie and diario de uma paixao image movie, kiss, and the notebook image
the way i loved you (taylor's version)

It's 2:00am again! Also ever since I found this song is based on "The Notebook" I can't think of anything else when I listen to it.

And it rains in your bedroom, everything is wrong
It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone

I love these lyrics so much I don't know why. Like of course everything is wrong if it's raining in bedroom.

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong

I jut love lyric parallels lol. It shows how she's grown up but still has a special relationship with her mother which I love.

They might be bigger
But we're faster and never scared

change (taylor's version)

Powerful lyrics and reminds me of "only the young!" A powerful rebellious taylor swift song? Yes please!

Well, I like the way your hair falls in your face
You got the keys to me
I love each freckle on your face, oh
freckles image Image by ❛[Ale]❜
jump then fall (taylor's version)

This also reminds me of another song, my favourite song from evermore "goldrush": "your hair falling into place like dominoes". Each freckle? That's a lot of love!

In the middle of the night, when I'm in this dream
It's like a million little stars spelling out your name

Taylor swift is a master at beautiful delicate lyrics!


Track 16 is Forever and Always in piano and since I've already done that one, moving on...

Talk to yourself, talk to the tears
Talk to the man who put you here

come in with the rain (taylor's version)

It's always interesting to see a weirdly religious reference in a taylor song. I don't know if it's a country thing but she refers to god a lot more in her earlier songs. Her current songs are less religious on the whole apart from maybe "soon you'll get better". Anyway, no matter what you believe it's a pretty emotional meaningful lyric.

I'm no one special, just another wide-eyed girl
Who's desperately in love with you
Taylor Swift image dancer, glitter, and party image
superstar (taylor's version)

I love how she sings "desperately in love with you". It's also interesting how now she's got people singing that about her!

To stand outside my window, throwin' pebbles
Screamin', "I'm in love with you"

the other side of the door (taylor's version)

These lyrics hark after Romeo and Juliet, and obviously the song love story: "you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles". I love the way she sings this bit too.

Can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me

today was a fairytale (taylor swift)

I love how this song alludes to fantasy but isn't and how it sounds magical. It's a very pretty song, and these lyrics especially.

But no amount of freedom gets you clean
I've still got you all over me
music image minimal, music, and minimalist image
you all over me ft. maren morris (taylor's version) [from the vault]

Another song where Taylor is struggling to move on. It's different to how in 'clean' she seems to get clean a lot easier. At least we know she finally got over him now and is happy with joe!

I've been Miss "Misery" for the last time
And you're Mr. "Perfectly fine"
Image by 𝐺𝑖𝑢𝑙𝑖𝑎𝑛𝑎 𝐑𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐌𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 black heels, heels, and extreme heels image
mr perfectly fine (taylor's version) [from the vault]

I love the parallels once again, when she goes from saying "I've been miss misery since your goodbye" to this. These kind of parallels always get me, like in 1989's 'How you get the girl' she says "that's how you lost the girl". Idk why, but I always love those bits, like the change and growth in songs. By the end, Taylor is finally over him.

Oh, I hate those voices
Tellin' me I'm not in love anymore

It's the bridge and I'm sure you know by now how much I love Taylor Swift bridges. No other artists seem to be doing it quite like her.

And you said, that's when, when I wake up in the mornin'
That's when, when it's sunny or stormin'
Laughin' when I'm cryin'
35mm, aesthetic, and beautiful image guitar and music image
that's when ft. keith urban (taylor's version) [from the vault]

Well it's nice to know I'm not the only one who laughs when they cry. Also I think this is my favourite vault song.

Don't you say you've missed me if you don't want me again
You don't know how much I feel I love you still
love image anime, love, and pink image
don't you (taylor's version) [from the vault]

It seems like a very realistic portrayal of a break up, not wanting to talk to them unless they want to try again, which kind of reminds me other songs like happiness and i almost do. I think this another favourite song of mine from the vault.

Then the here and the now floods in
Feels like I'm becoming a part of your past
red, heart, and valentine image baby, wallpaper, and love image
bye bye baby (taylor's version) [from the vault]

I like how taylor swift uses floods symbolically, which is the whole point of the song 'clean' although it's less positive in this song, because she's still not quite other the person yet but still feels she needs to move on.

c'est fini
gosh that was a long one wasn't it

anyway, thanks for reading
i'll probably be working my way backwards until lover until red tv comes out

goodbye for now
