Confession: Taylor Swift songs make me teary-eyed.
I can’t help it. I mean, have you heard the song “Fifteen“? Don’t you remember how much high school sucked sometimes? And how it’s now so clear to see just how naive you were back then? High school had it’s high points for me, but it was also full of some not-so-high points of feeling misunderstood, let-down and unsure of where I fit in. This song takes me back to that confusing and frustrating time that is still a bit bittersweet for me to think about.
I’ve found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you’re supposed to be
I didn’t know who I was supposed to be at fifteen
I don’t often openly admit to enjoying mainstream pop music because, well, it’s just not “cool.” But I can’t help but have a soft spot for Taylor and her extremely honest and sweet songs. It’s refreshing to see a 20 year-old performer who has her head on straight and who seems genuinely humbled by her success. I can’t help but like her.
Oh, and don’t even get me started on her song “The Best Day.” Don’t. Even. One word: sobfest.
So, there you have it — I am seven months away from being in my thirties (oy), and Taylor Swift songs make me teary-eyed. What’s it to ya?
Now please tell me I’m not the only one…
