When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower, and when I'm falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster.
There's part of our brain that we shut off when we're in the studio. There's part of our brain that we turn on when we are out doing an interview or promoting something or waking up at six in the morning for hair and makeup.
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've always written songs the same way. You learn different tricks - you learn craft, you learn structure, all that - as you go.
If you're trying too hard to be the girl next door, you're not going to be. Taylor Swif
Real love still happens sometimes. It's not just something we make up when you're nine. I have to believe that. You do too.
When I was 9 or 10, I used to get all the lead roles because I was the tallest person. But my interest in music soon drew me to country music. I was infatuated with the sound, with the storytelling. I could relate to it. I can't really tell you why. With me, it was just instinctual.
I've always been a hugger. If we all hugged more, the world would be a better place :)
My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meetâ€¦is that they all realize their worth and ask for it.
You need to be happy with yourself or you'll never be able to be happy in a relationship.
No matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. Taylor S
One of my goals from really early on was that if I was ever fortunate enough to be successful in music, I would want to stay the same person and the same songwriter.
I approach love differently now that I know it's hard for it to work out.
My dad (Scott Swift) believed in me, even when I didn't.He always knew I could do this. Iâ€™m sure that everyone in Reading remembers how much he talked about me. I thought that was sweet, but really I just wasnâ€™t as sure it would happen. So, I just love my dad for believing in his little girl.
Some of the most beautiful people in the whole world wake up some days and they don't think that they're pretty.
Unique and different is the new generation of beautifulâ€¦ You dont have to be like everybody else. In fact I donâ€™t think you should.
I never want to change so much that people can't recognize me.
and you come away with a great little story of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you
...we almost never speak I don't feel welcome anymorebaby what happened, please tell me?
When you're singing you can hear the echo of people in the audience singing every single word with you, and that was that big dream that I had for myself. It's happening.
I don't compete with other people in the industry, I compete with myself.
I'm shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town
Just being a human being, Iâ€™ve realized that before every big problem you create for yourself, before every huge mess you have to clean up, there was a crucial moment where you couldâ€™ve just said no.
Wow I can't belive I won, This is awesome, Don't trip and fall, I'm gonna get to thank the fans, This is so cool, Oh kany'e west is here, Cool haircut, What are ya doing there... Ouch... I guess I'm not gonna get to thank the fans
When I hear that high-pitched sound of all those people screaming together, it's like, I want to get on stage right now. It's the most amazing feeling.
It was an actual Christmas tree farm. We had, like, 15 acres. It was really fun as a kid. I also spent my summers at the Jersey Shore, on the bay in Stone Harbor. I walked everywhere barefoot. It was just the most amazing, magical way to grow up.
I love the scents of winter! For me, it's all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce.
To me fearless isn't not having fears, it's not that you're not afraid of anything. I think that being fearless is having a lot of fears, but you jump anyway.
Factoring in millions of people when I'm writing a song is not a good idea. I don't ever do it.
I have this fear of falling in front of large groups of people. That's why I tend not to wear heels.
