You gave me memories that were inevitable of being remembered.
You gave me moments that were far from how the course of life normally goes.
You gave me happiness that I have never thought could be realized.
So how do I start to cry and complain?
When the only payment you asked from me was a goodbye.
I have to different levels of emotion towards people
1. I care about you. Usually I speak to you and laugh a lot (not because you’re that funny but because everything’s that funny)
2. I don’t care about you. Not in the sort of you can die and I won’t care way. Just you could die and I’d get over it (eventually) I don’t necessarily talk to you or look at you or acknowledge you(just kidding) but for real you’re just there and I’m on tumblr or something
And then there’s bunnies because mine just jumped into her food bag. Thats love bitch (pickles are also considered for this category)
I want this song to go out in the world and not be about my critics, I want it to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in eleventh grade because she thinks that her hair looks stupid. And that girl then goes and like cries in the bathroom because of it. These are things that we go through in every phase of our lives, starting a new job and there’s just someone who has it out for you. And I hope that maybe, you know, I had a lot of days when I would come home from school, and get in the car and my mom would try so hard to console me ‘cause someone had made fun of me or something had said something about me, or not invited me to something I was dying to go to. And she would always try to find songs that bring me out of that, and music always helped distract me from that, so I think my greatest hope is that this started out being about my life and I just want it to go out into cars, and speakers, and your phones, and become about their lives.
Part of me just wants to take 1989 and hide it and shelter it because I feel like it’s going to make so much history and be so perfect that I never want the haters to hear it but then I want to flaunt it and say “What about Taylor being last year?”
[RED] was a devastating record. It was about dealing with an intense heartbreak and ‘1989’ is about the phase after that where you brush yourself off and you’re ok.
When we’re young our parents embarrass us…
But there gets to be a point where we start to embarrass them…
