Sometimes it's hard to remember a time when Taylor Swift wasn't one of the leading vocalists and recording artists in the world. But just 12 short years ago we were all hearing her self-titled "Taylor Swift" album for the first time. And just like that she became one of the most well recognized female voices, topping music charts and being played constantly on the radio. But it wasn't just her plucky guitar melodies or her vocal talent that made her a star. It was her ability to write lyrics that spoke to women (and men) across the country. She fell in and out of love, she was young and awkward, and she was just trying to figure out her life. And in that sense, she was so dang relatable. So here's 15 lyrics that prove just that.

1. "Oh I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world."

This could basically be the anthem of every young adult in their 20s.

Song: "A Place in This World"

2. "Nobody ever lets me in.And I can still see you; this ain't the best view."

Everyone remembers the awkwardness of being left out at some point in their lives. Taylor sums it up pretty well with a song that is so reminiscent of many people's middle school and high school experiences.

Song: "The Outside"

3. "And you're tied together with a smile but you're coming undone."

We all know this feeling.

Song: "Tied Together With A Smile"

4. "And I don't try to hide my fears, my secrets, or my deepest fears. Through it all nobody gets me like you do."

I read that Taylor wrote this song about her best friend, and the lyrics certainly reflect that.

Song: "I'm Only Me When I'm With You"

5. "I've found time can heal most anything, and you just might find out who you're supposed to be. I didn't know who I was supposed to be. At fifteen."

Another song about the turbulence of being a teenager.

Song: "Fifteen"

6. "People are people and sometimes we change our minds."

taylor swift

Taylor reminds us that sometimes the people we know the best, who we think will be around forever, leave. And then we have to continue on without them.

Song: "Breathe"

7. "I know you were on my side, even when I was wrong. And I love you for giving me your eyes, staying back and watching me shine."

taylor swift

Swift calls it the "age of princesses and pirate ships", and sings a song that reminds us of our own time growing up. I particularly love this song because there are so many daddy-daughter songs out there, but not nearly enough mother-daughter ones, and this one does a great job of recounting everything a mother does for her daughter while the latter grows up.

Song: "Best Day"

8. "Tonight we'l stand, get off our knees, fight for what we've worked for all these years."

taylor swift

A song for the underdog in everyone.

Song: "Change"

9. "Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me, and all you're ever gonna be is mean."

taylor swift

A reminder that you are so much bigger than the bullies.

Song: "Mean"

10. "Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room. Memorize what is sounded like when you dad gets home. Remember the footsteps, remember the words said, and all your little brother's favorite songs."

taylor swift

Swift pleads with her listeners not to grow up too fast.

Song: "Never Grow Up"

11. "Lives change like the weather. I hope you remember, today is never too late to be brand new."

taylor swift

We all mess up, and we all get the chance to start again.

Song: "Innocent"

12. "We're happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time."

taylor swift

This is young adulthood summed up in ten words.

Song: "22"

13. "'And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake. I shake it off, shake it off."

taylor swift

Swift, who is constantly gossiped about and speculated on, knows from experience that you just have to ignore what everyone else says about you.

Song: "Shake it Off"

14. "Rain came pouring down when I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe. And by morning, gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean."

taylor swift

Wash away the touch and thought of people who no longer serve a purpose in your life.

Song: "Clean"

15. "Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you."

taylor swift

Take pictures, remember the good times.

Song: "New Year's Day"

    James Charles Has Been Exposed And The Receipts Just Keep Coming, Bye Sister

    Let the subscriber count continue to fall.

    48
    views

    Unless you live under a rock, you probably have heard about the recent drama revolving around YouTuber and beauty guru James Charles.

    Tati Westbrook, a former friend of James and fellow YouTube makeup artist published this video expressing her disappointment and hurt over James' actions.

    So, what is the "problem" with James Charles, you may ask? Ah, well, there are a few.

    1. He has a history of racist comments.

    James tweeted this in 2017 and has since apologized for and deleted it. Everyone messes up from time to time, especially teenagers (which James still is). But, the purpose of this is to illustrate that James has not always had a squeaky clean record. Because of the scandal with Tati Westbrook, James has now lost over 3 million subscribers on YouTube. Why have his past racist comments not made as much of an impact on his career, while the allegations by Tati and others have? It seems like "canceled culture" likes to pick and choose what to take into consideration when "ending" someone's career.

    2. He has exhibited predatory behavior.

    James slid into the DM's of straight, married model Stephen Harris...

    James also has a history of forcing his sexuality on straight men— to the point where he will insist that they are not straight and never will be. Model Stephen Harris shared the above images on his Instagram story, but other models including Jay Alvarrez have come forth with similar claims. Sam Cooke, one of James' most recent interests, has explained in detail his uncomfortable interaction with James in this video. A straight boy who James demonized and called a "con artist" explains how he was manipulated by James in this video.

    Tati Westbrook talked briefly in her video "BYE SISTER..." about the predatory behavior James has often shown, but it was only for a few minutes. It was evident that she was uncomfortable discussing this. Nonetheless, she talked about James ruining a dinner by constantly telling those at the table what he would do to the (straight) waiter.

    Popular beauty guru Jeffree Star has stated that his husband no longer allows James to come to the couple's home and that the allegations against James are "100% true." Unfortunately, this tweet has since been deleted.

    3. He has acted selfishly and betrayed friends.

    Tati Westbrook's breaking point with James was when he participated in a brand deal with a company that rivaled one that Westbrook was working with. She has expressed concern over the entitlement that James has and his apparent disregard for friends. James has stated publicly that working in the beauty industry as a male is extremely difficult for him and that his job is very stressful. His portrayal as some sort of martyr has not sat well with many, including Tati. "How entitled do you have to be to think that you have it rough? You are a 19-year-old millionaire. You do not get to wake up and stress out about how unfair your job is. That is so ridiculous to me," are her words from the "BYE SISTER..." video. For some background, Tati acted as a mentor to James when he first entered the beauty industry. Now, Tati has said that she is "afraid of him," and for good reason.
