I love making new friends and I respect people for a lot of different reasons. Taylor S
There are two ways you can go with pain: You can let it destroy you or you can use it as fuel to drive youâ€¦
I have so many indie bands on my iPod. What I don't really understand is the attitude that if a band is unknown, they're good, and if they get fans, then you move on to the next band.
I really donâ€™t want a compilation of sounds. I just need them to be songs.
Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. Taylor S
I wouldn't wear tiny amounts of clothing in my real life so I don't think it's necessary to wear that stuff in photo-shoots.
I had the most magical childhood, running free and going anywhere I wanted to in my head.
I know what it's like to pine away for that summer romance you just can't get back.
I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to love... There's no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us, of course. I can't plan for it. I can't predict how it'll end up. Because love is unpredictable and it's frustrating and it's tragic and it's beautiful...
I still like to live in a whimsical world that seems more romantic and fantasy-related because real life seems so hard
Hendersonville is home because I live there and I work there. But when I come back to Pennsylvania and see the crowds and the landscape, it's such a rush. It just feels like home.
It's one of the craziest feelings to be on stage and know that you were sitting on your bedroom floor when that song came to be and now there's an arena full of people singing it.
Sometimes in love it just gets to the point where I have to give up. I have to give up trying and I have to give up believing because I know things won't change. To me, giving up isn't being weak. Giving up is being strong enough to let go.
I think songwriting is the ultimate form of being able to make anything that happens in your life productive.
I can't deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you.
The haters just got to hate so just shake it of.
You can draw inspiration from anything. If you're a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you're casually talking to says something that makes you so mad - you can create an entire scenario
People don't take you seriously if you scream, if you raise your voice, especially when you're a 19-year-old girl.
We need music the most when weâ€™re feeling things really intensely. I think the most intense times in your life are when youâ€™re either falling in love or losing it
Most of my fans, if you were to look on their iPods, you'd see every possible genre of music represented in some capacity.
When you strategize a relationship too much, like, "We're not gonna be public about it, and we're gonna say this in interviews," when you think it all out, I think that complicates the relationship and I think that's unfair for the relationship.
My level of awkward makes everyone else feel normal
I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS.
There's room for role models who make mistakes. Taylor S
I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lens, on everything that happens.
I get so excited when a song I wrote that's very personal to me goes No. 1 and I look down and see people singing the words back to me.
There are times when you get frustrated, but the one thing you always focus on is treating people well. You just cannot storm off and freak out.
It's a love story, baby, just say, Yes.
I definitely know that there's somebody looking out for me, because I could never do this alone.
I'm always worried about everything. Like spiders. Taylor S
