These 11 song lyrics show how her songs can relate to those moments when you just want to rip your hair out. Take a look:

1. Song: "22," Album: "Red"

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

What she really means:

"College, I'm free!"

"So this is what independence feels like."

"Wait, Mom, how do I do laundry?"

"What do you mean I can't wash whites and colors together?"

"Come on, I just ruined my favorite shirt!"

2. Song: "All Too Well," Album: "Red"

"And I know it's long gone, and that magic's not here no more, and I might be okay, but I'm not fine at all...."

What she really means:

"I swear I studied it all last night."

"Why can't I remember it?"

"I'm going to fail, this is not OK."

3. Song: "Blank Space," Album: "1989"

"So it's gonna be forever or it's gonna go down in flames. You can tell me when it's over if the high was worth the pain."

What she really means:

"This is it. This test is going to make or break my GPA."

"Yep, I failed."

"I'm going to get kicked out of the program."

"Why did I pick this major again?"

What she really means:

"Wow, that all-night cramming session really did pay off."

7. Song: "I Almost Do," Album: "Red"

"I bet this time of night you're still up. I bet you're tired from a long hard week."

What she really means:

"Yep, I'm still up."

"Still studying."

"Is it Friday yet?"

"Can Friday come faster?"

8. Song: "I Know Places," Album: "1989"

"I can hear them whisper as we pass by. It's a bad sign, bad sign."

What she really means:

"What did they say?"

"Was the test hard?"

"Why is no one giving me any information?"

9. Song: "I Wish You Would," Album: "1989"

"It's 2 a.m. in my room. Headlights pass the window pane, I think of you. We're a crooked love in a straight line down. Makes you wanna run and hide, then it makes you turn right back around."

What she really means:

"What if I just moved to Alaska?"

"I bet I wouldn't have to take this exam."

"Yeah, but I'm not paying fifty thousand dollars a year for nothing."

"OK, I guess I'll finish studying."

10. Song: "Lucky Ones," Album: "Red"

"You know that we'll never leave if we don't get out now, now, now."

"Seriously, though, if I leave now I don't have to worry or study anymore."
