Taylor Swift is back & better than ever.

The Best Lyrics From Every Track On Taylor Swift's "Reputation"

Well, Taylor Swift is back and “Reputation” has die-hard Taylor Swift fans shaking. This album was well-worth the wait and is full of many lyrical gems. Here are the best lyrics from every song on “Reputation” that you’ll see all over Instagram captions and that will have you in the feels.

1. “...Ready For It?”

“In the middle of the night, in my dreams, you should see the things we do.”

I couldn’t think of a better opening track for Reputation because of the title. Taylor literally is asking us if we’re ready for this album, and to be completely honest, I don’t think I was.

2. “End Game”

“I don’t wanna touch you, I don’t wanna be just another ex-love you don’t want to see.”

I’m still waiting on this song to grow on me like the rest of the album. If you’re a fan of Future, though, you’ll love this song because it features him really well.

3. “I Did Something Bad”

“If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit, ‘cause he had it coming.”

It’s so obvious to me who this song is about, and I’m SO here for it. I’m living for Taylor’s feisty, take-no-shit phase.

4. “Don’t Blame Me”

“My drug is my baby I’ll be usin’ for the rest of my life.”

Taylor’s vocals in this song SLAY. This is a perfect example of her really getting into the mood of the song vocally and she’s killing it.

5. “Delicate”

“Sometimes when I look into your eyes I pretend you’re mine, all the damn time.”

This song is so chill and laid-back and I love that about it. I’m yet to find a lot that stands out about this track, but I’m still a fan.

6. “Look What You Made Me Do”

“I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me, I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams.”

This track isn’t a good representation of the album whatsoever. It does well as a lead single because it’s good for radio and to get people interested, but in comparison to the other songs on this album, this one lacks substance.

7. “So It Goes”

“You know I’m not a bad girl, but I do bad things for you.”

The overall sound and instrumentation of this track is my absolute favorite. This track clearly has its own, unique sound to it which makes it stand out quite a bit.

8. “Gorgeous”

“You’ve ruined my life by not being mine.”

I loved this song the first time I heard it and I still do. It’s the best single Taylor released before the album and still one of the best songs on the album overall.

9. “Getaway Car”

“I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason.”

Maybe it’s because this track is towards the middle of the album, but I typically forget it exists.

10. “King of My Heart”

“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep.”

At first I didn’t really like this song, but it’s starting to grow on me. Not only can you easily dance to this song (which is always a plus) but it’s also full of some stand-out lyrics.

11. “Dancing With Our Hands Tied”

“I’m a mess but I’m the mess that you wanted.”

The chorus of this song is so powerful and really stands out. It’s taken awhile for this song to grow on me, but it’s starting to for sure.

12. “Dress”

“Say my name and everything just stops, I don’t want you like a best friend. Only bought this dress so you could take it off.”

YES. JUST YES. This song is my favorite off of reputation. It’s basically the more mature version of Wildest Dreams, because there’s no doubt in your mind that this song is about sex.

13. “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”

“And here’s to my mama, had to listen to all this drama.”

I like this song because it’s funny and witty and clever. It’s not the deepest song on the album by any means but Taylor drops major tea in this track and it’s hilarious.

14. “Call It What You Want”

“I want to wear his initial on a chain ‘round my neck, not because he owns me, but because he really knows me.”

I really love this song. It’s a very realistic view of love, which many would say Taylor Swift lacks. It shows Taylor’s maturity as a person along with as an artist perfectly.

15. “New Year’s Day”

“Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you.”

This is one of the only slow songs on the album, but it ends the album hitting you right in the feels. This song has the perfect dash of old-Taylor feels and sound. Now, who is going to fall in love with me by New Year’s so I can play this song in the back of my mind?

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
