I've always been really, really aware of my insecurities - really, really aware. I never developed that thick skin that keeps you from letting things get to you.
Most of the time, songs that I write end up being finished in 30 minutes or less.
I've always strived to be successful, not famous.
I was never a boy magnet at school. There was always the girl all the guys liked and wanted to date, but it was never me.
If you cry over a guy, then your friends can't date him. It can't even be considered.
I would just be constantly writing all these zingers - like, 'Burn. That would really get her.' And I know people are going to obsess over who it's about, because they think they have all my relationships mapped out. But there's a reason there are not any overt call-outs in that song. My intent was
You can walk away and say "We don't need this." but something in your eyes says "We can beat this.
I think there's something so attractive about mystery.
Faith Hill is a big role model.
When I'm thinking about going on a date with some guy or considering liking him, it really doesn't matter what they do or how that affects my career.
They're [haters] just building you up to knock you down. But for me, they haven't.
There are times when I'm caught up in everything and I have to say to myself, "Please feel good; please feel better; everything's okay; you're fine; things aren't falling apart; take a second; get back to a place where you realize that you don't actually have real problems." That happens. You never
I write songs about what I go through.
I will always believe in love and I don't care what happens to me or how many times I get my heart broken, or how many breakup songs I write, I'm always going to believe that someday I am going to meet somebody who is actually right for me and he's going to be wonderful and it's going to work out.
But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have ot believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That's why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.
This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.
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.
In a relationship each person should support the other; they should lift each other up. Taylor S
When you run into someone that you used to be in love with, all that you have is drama, desperation and not know what to do.
I feel like my music has become a lot of things. It's hard to label the evolution, but I like there to be an evolution. I just like to paint with all different kinds of colors.
The drama and the trauma of the relationship you have when you're 16 can mirror the one you have when you're 26. Life repeats itself.
A letdown is worth a few songs. A heartbreak is worth a few albums. Taylor S
I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger.
I let people fill in the blanks on their own. If they want to think about their ex, that's fine. If they want to think about maybe who one of my exes is, then that's fine. And it might not be right, because I'm the only one who knows what these songs are really about. It's the one shred of privacy I
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
I don't know if I could do this with the same energy, and in the same way - all the costume changes and glitter and hair and makeup - all the time. When I'm in my 50s, I kind of think I'll want to be in a garden.
I think that the idea of finding another person to share your life with is the most fascinating, beautiful quest you could ever be on in life. And yes, living your dreams is so important too, and a lot of times Iâ€™ve put that before everything else. But then you get to a place where the whole time
You might think I'm bulletproof, but I'm not.
When I'm writing a record, I kind of don't listen to much music. Just because I want to be inspired solely on the emotion; just based on how it feels.
I've seen my friends take someone back after they've cheated because they fit perfectly. Taylor Swif
