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.
