|Taylor mocking my pain|
Yeah. I related to that.
Another one that I really related to was Dear John. Most people know this song was written about John Mayer. In my mind, however, it was about my ex. Because his fucking name is John.
Anyway, Dear John basically recounts how John Mayer manipulated Taylor and ended up just leaving her in the gutter. I'd drink to that, Taylor.
The next song in my long list of self pity is Speak Now. This is a lighter track, but it's basically about Taylor crashing her ex's wedding. And it kind of trashes the bride a little and makes references to her haughty attitude. Once I learned that John and girl-he-left-me-for would be getting married, it made that one hit close to home.
Last Kiss is another brutal one. This one actually still gets me to a degree. I think the lyrics are top notch and really describe heartache in a way that makes you feel it from the gut. I can say that now and look at it from an artistic perspective.
In 2010, I looked at it from this perspective:
Anyway, so these are the lyrics that got me the most:
So I'll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep
And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe
And I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are
Hope it's nice where you are
John was away at college and he'd met a ton of new friends, so there were pictures posted on Facebook of him looking happy with all of his new friends... while I was sitting from behind my computer blasting Taylor Swift and behaving similarly to the gif above.
I'll admit it was ridiculous.
The other songs that made me considerably upset were Back to December (because we started dating in December), The Story Of Us, and Haunted.
Really, I never felt closer to Taylor Swift than I did during those few months of probably certifiable insanity (I didn't actually get evaluated).
Now, some of you might say, "Cherie, you can't blame Taylor Swift for not being able to contain your own emotions." And to you I say... well then ok. Maybe I'm still in denial?
Anyway, hindsight being 20/20 and all that, I wish I'd gotten over it a little sooner. But I do have to thank Taylor Swift for helping me get through some much needed wallowing. I felt like I had a friend there helping me through it. And even if she never puts out another song I like, I'll be a fan for that reason alone.
1989 will be released on October 27. I'm pumped!
