96 Lyrics From "Red (Taylor's Version)" That Swifties Will Use As Instagram Captions In 2022

Let's all agree now that our NYE's posts will be captioned: "I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 2022!"

Now, as a Swiftie, I've been known to quote a song or two in my Instagram captions — because who wouldn't want to share such awe-inspiring poetry with the world?

And with the arrival of the show-stopping re-recording of Red (Taylor's Version), I thought I might share all the lyrics that I think would make excellent captions for your posts in the coming year.
