Taylor Swift Lyrics

Seemingly out of nowhere in 2006, Taylor Swift did what is becoming almost impossible to do in today's crumbling music industry: She sold more than 3 million copies of her first album. And the country-pop star did it all rather quietly, garnering a Grammy nomination for best new artist along the way.

Svelte and blond with a sculptured face the camera adores, the 16- year-old singer wasn't a teen dream manufactured by the Disney machine. She also wasn't packaged as a vampish pop tart, wailing suggestive songs that belied her years.

Her earnest but girlish vocals were ensconced in sympathetic arrangements that were more pop than country. But it was Swift's gift as a songwriter that pushed her ahead of the pack. She wrote about her bad luck with boys in detailed, sometimes touching lyrics that never felt too precious. In fact, Swift's songs are sturdy and universal enough to work in any musical context.

On Fearless, her hotly anticipated sophomore album, she basically sticks with what worked on the debut. She's 18 now. And although her maturation on the album is deliberately pitched to the country-pop crossover crowd, Swift's songs remain tightly crafted. The melodies may not always be immediate, but the tunes still worm their way into your head.

Lyrically, Swift is still boy-crazy. She achingly pines for the dreamy ones ("Love Story," "You Belong With Me," and the breezy title track) and dismisses the empty-headed ones ("Tell Me Why" and "White Horse"). She refreshingly eschews the role of diva wannabe and remains the down-to-earth girlfriend next door.

"The Best Day," an affecting ballad, is a lovely valentine to her family. Simple and understated, it's sure to be a hit with fans.



Taylor Swift Love Story Lyrics

We were both young
When I first saw you
I closed my eyes
And the flash back starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air

I see the lights
See the party the ballgowns
I see you make your way
Through the crowd
And say Hello
Little did I know

That you were Romeo
You were throwing pebbles
'Till my daddy said Stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Beggin' you Please don't go

And I said

Romeo take me
Somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting
All that's left to do is run
You be the Prince
And I'll be the Princes
It's a Love Story
Baby just say Yes

So I sneak out
To the garden to see you
We keep quiet
Cause were dead if they new
So close your eyes
Just keep this down for a little while

Cause you were Romeo
I was a Scarlett Letter
And my daddy said Stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
And I was beggin' you Please don't go

And I said

Romeo take me
Somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting
All that's left to do is run
You be the Prince
And I'll be the Princes
It's a Love Story
Baby just say Yes

Romeo save me
They're trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult
But it's real
Don't be afraid
We'll make it out of this mess
It's a Love Story
Baby just say Yes

I got tired of waiting
Wounderin' if you were ever comin' around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town

And I said

Romeo save me
I've been feelin' so alone
I keep waiting for you
But you never come
Is this in my head?
I don't know what to think
He kneels to the ground
And pulls out a ring

And says

Marry me Juliet
You never have to be alone
I love you
And that's all I really know
I talked to your dad
Go pick out a white dress
It's a Love Story
Baby just say Yes

Cause we were both young
When I first saw you
