45 Of The Greatest Taylor Swift Lyrics

I've been a fan of Taylor Swift since I was nine years old, when she released her first self-titled album, Taylor Swift. I've been along for the ride for Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, and all of the songs in between. There's just something about her music and her lyrics that I've always appreciated. There's a Taylor Swift song for when you're happy, sad, angry, and every other emotion. She just gets it. She might receive a lot of hate for writing about her exes, but that's what makes her lyrics so real and relatable. It is apparent to the listener that her heart is in every word she writes and every note she sings, so here are my favorite Taylor Swift lyrics.

1. "Just a boy in a Chevy truck that had a tendency of getting stuck on back roads at night and I was right there beside him all summer long." - "Tim McGraw"

2. "Seems the only one who doesn't see your beauty is the face in the mirror looking back at you." - "Tied Together With a Smile"

3. "You're beautiful, every little piece love, and don't you know, you're really gonna be someone." - "Stay Beautiful"

4. "Our song is the slamming screen door, sneaking out late, tapping on your window. When we're on the phone and you talk real slow, 'cause it's late and your mama don't know." - "Our Song"

5. "Well you drive me crazy half the time. The other half I'm only trying to let you know that what I feel is true and I'm only me when I'm with you." - "I'm Only Me When I'm With You"

7. "Yeah, I said, 'Leave,' but all I really want is you to stand outside my window throwing pebbles, screaming, 'I'm in love with you.'" - "The Other Side Of The Door"

8. "And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress, fearless." - "Fearless"

9. "When all you wanted was to be wanted. Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now." - "Fifteen"

10. "Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window, I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold." - "Hey Stephen"

12. "You could write a book on how to ruin someone's perfect day." - "Tell Me Why"

19. "You're in the car on the way to the movies and you're mortified your mom's dropping you off. At 14 there's just so much you can't do and you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots." - "Never Grow Up"

20. "This night is sparkling, don't you let it go. I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home." - "Enchanted"

21. "But sophistication isn't what you wear or who you know or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go." - "Better Than Revenge"

22. "Did some things you can't speak of, but at night you live it all again. You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now, if only you had seen what you know now then." - "Innocent"

23. "I do recall now the smell of the rain. Fresh on the pavement, I ran off the plane. That July 9th, the beat of your heart. It jumps through your shirt. I can still feel your arms." - "Last Kiss"

34. "He said, 'Look at you, worrying too much about things you can't change.
You'll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way.'" - "Starlight"

35. "And it was like slow motion, standing there in my party dress in red lipstick, with no one to impress." - "The Moment I Knew"

36. "Taxi cabs and busy streets that never bring you back to me." - "Come Back...Be Here"

37. "Everybody here was someone else before and you can want who you want, boys and boys and girls and girls. Welcome to New York." - "Welcome To New York"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
