13 Taylor Swift Songs That Totally Relate To Specific Men From My Past

IN HONOR OF TAYLOR SWIFT COMING TO TOWN, I WANNA HAVE A TAYLOR CHAT! IT’S THE CRAZIEST THING. LITERALLY, EVERY SINGLE TAYLOR SONG/ALBUM IS A SPECIFIC MAN FROM MY PAST. AND GOING BACK AND LISTENING TO ALL THESE SONGS IS BRINGING BACK SUCH GNARLY MEMORIES!

SO I WANTED TO TAKE A MINUTE AND TELL YOU A BIT ABOUT EACH SONG AND WHAT ITS MEANT TO ME! I ALSO WANT TO KNOW IF YOU GUYS HAVE SAME FEELINGS WITH THESE SONGS, LET ME KNOW!

OH AND IN TRUE TAYLOR FASHION, I WON’T NAME NAMES.. BUT YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! 😉

I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE - "AND HE'S LONG GONE, WHEN HE'S NEXT TO ME / AND I REALIZE THE BLAME IS ON ME"

OH THE ONE THAT WAS NEVER MINE, AND I KNEW NEVER WOULD BE MINE.. BUT WAS SO WORTH THE HEARTACHE IN THE END OF IT ALL. I KNEW BETTER BUT I WENT IN FOR IT ANYWAY. 

 

DELICATE - “IS IT COOL THAT I SAID ALL THAT? IS IT CHILL THAT YOU’RE IN MY HEAD? ‘CAUSE I KNOW THAT IT’S DELICATE”

I CAN RELATE TO THIS LYRIC BEYOND! I’M ALWAYS SAYING MORE THAN I SHOULD.. RYAN ACTUALLY JUST TOLD ME I NEED PORTION CONTROL WITH MY WORDS AND HE’S SO RIGHT. I SUFFER FROM WORD VOMMIT & I CAN JUST RELATE TO THIS LYRIC ON A TOTALLY DIFFERENT LEVEL.

 

STATE OF GRACE - “AND I NEVER SAW YOU COMING. AND I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME. “

HOW MANY OF YOU HAD THAT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE YOU NEVER IMAGINED WOULD BE IN YOUR LIFE, AND THEN THEY WERE… THEY CAME AND WENT LIKE A TERRIBLE STORM… AND LEFT YOU A DIFFERENT PERSON. THEN WOW.. THIS LYRIC IS YOURS JUST AS MUCH AS IT IS MINE!

 

COLD AS YOU - "AND YOU COME AWAY WITH A GREAT LITTLE STORY / OF A MESS OF A DREAMER WITH THE NERVE TO ADORE YOU"

I ALWAYS ENTER EVERY RELATIONSHIP WITH A HOPEFUL ATTITUDE.. A HOPELESS ROMANTIC (OR AT LEAST I USED TO) SO THIS PRETTY MUCH WAS ME AT THE END OF EVERY RELATIONSHIP… JUST A MESS OF A DREAM WITH THE NERVE TO ADORE.. OH WELL! NO REGRETS!

 

NEW ROMANTICS - "HEARTBREAK IS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM / WE SING IT PROUDLY"

I LOVE THIS BECAUSE EVERYONE CAN TOTALLY RELATE TO HEARTBREAK. IT IS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND I SCREAM THIS LYRIC EVERY TIME I HEAR THIS SONG!

 

WILDEST DREAMS - “SOMEDAY WHEN YOU LEAVE ME. I BET THESE MEMORIES FOLLOW YOU AROUND”

I REMEMBER FIRST LISTENING TO THIS SONG, AND IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A GUY WHERE I KNEW IT WAS GOING NOWHERE. BUT I JUST STAYED IN IT FOR (WHO KNOWS WHY). I KEPT LISTENING TO THIS SONG & THINKING OF HIM.. AND HOPING THAT WHEN WHATEVER WE HAD ENDED.. THE MEMORIES WOULD HAUNT HIM & MAKE HIM WISH HE TRIED HARDER WITH ME.

 

ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS STAY - “HEY, ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS STAY. HAD ME IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND THEN WHY’D YOU HAVE TO GO AND LOCK ME OUT WHEN I LET YOU IN?”

THIS LYRIC HIT HOME FOR ME, ESPECIALLY AT THE TIME THIS ALBUM CAME OUT. A GUY HAD ME EATING OUT OF THE PALM OF HIS HAND LITERALLY.. AND THEN JUST LEFT. BOOM. GONE. NEEDLESS TO SAY I RESONATED WITH THIS SONG!

 

FOREVER & ALWAYS - "AND I STARE AT THE PHONE, HE STILL HASN'T CALLED / AND THEN YOU FEEL SO LOW YOU CAN'T FEEL NOTHING AT ALL"

ANYONE EVER GONE THROUGH A BREAKUP CAN REALTE TO THIS FEELING!!!!

 

CLEAN - "JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE CLEAN DON'T MEAN YOU DON'T MISS IT"

THIS LYRIC HAS STUCK WITH ME SINCE THE MOMENT I FIRST HEARD IT. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE ISN’T IN YOUR LIFE ANYMORE DOESN’T MISS YOU DON’T MISS THEM. I MEAN, THIS LYRIC… STRAIGHT TO THE HEART!

 

OURS - “SO DON'T YOU WORRY YOUR PRETTY LITTLE MIND / PEOPLE THROW ROCKS AT THINGS THAT SHINE / AND LIFE MAKES LOVE LOOK HARD"

I LOVE HOW ENCOURAGING THIS LYRIC IS! WE ALL DEAL WITH NAY-SAYERS AND NEGATIVE COMMENTS.. PEOPLE LIKE TO TEAR DOWN THINGS THAT SHINE!

 

"MEAN" - “SOMEDAY I'LL BE LIVING IN A BIG, OLD CITY AND ALL YOU'RE EVER GONNA BE IS MEAN.”

OHH MAN DID THIS SONG GET ME THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES. IN LIFE, SOME PEOPLE CAN BE JUST DOWNRIGHT MEAN, AND THIS SONG IS SUCH AN ANTHEM TO REALIZE NOT TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE. DON’T GO DOWN TO THEIR LEVEL, YOU’RE GOING TO END UP ON TOP – AND THEY ARE JUST ALWAYS GOING TO BE MEAN!

 

LAST KISS - “I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BE SOMETHING YOU MISS.”

UGH THIS LYRIC GUTS ME… WHEN YOU JUT WISH SO BADLY TO BE THAT PERSON FOR SOMEONE, BUT YOU JUST AREN’T. GRASPING AT STRAWS TO CHANGE THEIR MIND BUT.. YOU JUST CAN’T!

 

"RED" - “LOSING HIM WAS BLUE, LIKE I’D NEVER KNOWN. MISSING HIM WAS DARK GRAY, ALL ALONE. FORGETTING HIM WAS LIKE TRYING TO KNOW SOMEBODY YOU NEVER MET. BUT LOVING HIM WAS RED.”

THIS SONG PERFECTLY SUMS UP THE BIGGEST RELATIONSHIP I HAD IN MY LIFE. I’LL JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT.
