    My Favorite Taylor Swift’s Lyrics From Each Song On Her 9 Albums.

    This took me a long time but it was worth it.

    I have been a fan of Taylor Swift ever since I was 8 years old and honestly I will always be.

    During quarantine, I took my favourite lyrics and made them into pictures which you will see in the following post.

    The following choice of best lyrics from each song from Taylor Swift’s studio albums are entirely my own opinion and are chosen because of what they mean to me or how they resonated with me when I first listened to them and over the years since their release. SO, LET'S START!

    Pinterest

    The songs will also include all the deluxe songs from each of the albums.

    TAYLOR SWIFT (2006)

    Taylor Swift

    1. TIM MCGRAW

    Taylor Swift

    The beginning lyrics of the first song set the tone for the rest of the album and I love the way she adds dialogue to her lyrics.

    2. PICTURE TO BURN

    Taylor Swift

    This visualisation of setting the memories of a bad relationship on fire sounds so cathartic and Taylor makes it sound badass.

    3. TEARDROPS ON MY GUITAR

    Taylor Swift

    The third chorus of this song is where it's at.

    If there's one thing Miss Swift can do, it is to describe a feeling or a moment in time.
