Whether you love her or hate her, there's no denying that T. Swift knows what she's doing. She's been serving bops ever since she hit the scene in her cowgirl boots and wild curls, and she doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.
Taylor is notorious for going all in when it come's to her music. She doesn't think twice about dragging an ex-boyfriend, or bestie when they've done her wrong, while still staying true to her classic love songs that make us all wish we were Juliet.
She expresses every emotion she feels through her songs, but since they're so catchy it's easy to miss the message she's actually conveying. So, here are 27 lyrics from some of Taylor's most popular songs that are actually more powerful than you may have thought.
1. "And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure / Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours"Giphy
- "Look What You Made Me Do"
Hell hath no fury like Taylor Swift scorned.
2. "Just because you're clean don't mean you don't miss it"
3. "So don't you worry your pretty little mind / People throw rocks at things that shine / And life makes love look hard"
4. "But I took your matches / Before fire could catch me / So don't look now / I'm shining like fireworks / Over your sad, empty town"Giphy

She left nothing to the imagination in this song "Dear John", roasted @ John Mayer.
5. "And you call me up again just to break me like a promise / So casually cruel in the name of being honest"
- "All Too Well"

Well said Taylor, well said.
8. "When all you wanted was to be wanted / Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now / Back then I swore I was going to marry him someday / But I realized some bigger dreams of mine"

- "White Horse"
16. " This is a big world, that was a small town there in my rear view mirror disappearing now."
- "White Horse"
Song so powerful, it had to be quoted twice.
" And we know it's never simple, never easy / Never a clean break, no one here to save me"
