Taylor Swift is a true savage.

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"

-Clean

3. "So don't you worry your pretty little mind / People throw rocks at things that shine / And life makes love look hard"

- "Ours"

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

- "Dear John"

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"

6. "But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity"

Giphy

- "Better Than Revenge"

Go listen to this song right now and try to tell me the entire thing isn't straight up savage.

7. "Darling. I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream"

Giphy

- "Blank Space"

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"

- "Fifteen"

9. "All my flowers grew back as thorns / Windows boarded up after the storm / He built a fire just to keep me warm"

- "Call It What You Want"

10. "Heartbreak is the national anthem / We sing it proudly"

- "New Romantics"

11. "And he's long gone, when he's next to me / And I realize the blame is on me"

- "I Knew You Were Trouble"

12. "So watch me strike a match on all my wasted time"

Giphy

- Picture To Burn

RT

13. "I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on..."

- "A Place In This World"

14. " Why are people always leaving? I think you and I should stay the same."

- "Hey Stephen"

15. "My mistake, I didn't know to be in love you had to fight to have the upper hand."

Giphy

- "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"

- "Breathe"

18. "You took a swing, I took it hard / And down here from the ground I see who you are"

- "Tell Me Why"

19. "It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone"

Giphy

- "Forever And Always"

20. " It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you"

- "Back To December"

Can we take a moment for the Taylor Swift x Taylor Lautner phase, that might just be my favorite.

21. "Someday I'll be living in a big, old city and all you'll ever be is mean"

Giphy

- "Mean"

Truth.

22. "I'd tell you I miss you, but I don't know how / I've never heard silence quite this loud"

- The Story Of Us

23. "Bring on all the pretenders / One day, we will be remembered"

- "Long Live"

24. "We're happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time / It's miserable and magical"

Giphy

- "22"

25. "The lights are so bright, but they never blind me"

- "Welcome To New York"

26. "Band-aids don't fix bullet holes / You say sorry just for show"

- "Bad Blood"

Sorry Katy...

27. "Who you are is not where you've been"

Giphy

- "Innocent"

Just writing that was a rollercoaster of emotions that I would be happy to ride any day, because T. Swift is a queen who deserves every ounce of fame and success she has.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
