A Compilation of the Best Taylor Swift Lyrics

Now it's no suprise that Taylor Swift has a way with words to say the least. The way she is able to describe and reflect on her life is truly something of wonder, so I've decided to share with you what I believe to be the best of her lyrics (in no particular order), the list is long but worth it. An added bonus is now you have an all inclusive list of some of the best instagram captions you can use for future posts. 

  1. 1. "My mistake I didn't know to be in love you had to fight to have the upper hand"

    White Horse | Fearless

    Change | Fearless 

  11. 11. "And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through? But what if the miracle was even getting one moment with you"

  14. 14. "And I gave you my best and we both know you can’t say that you can’t say that" 

    Better Man | written by Taylor Swift but sung by Little Big Town (However, Taylor did sing it as a suprise song on her Reputation Tour as well as in a documentry about Blue Bird Cafe. Both audios are on youtube) 

  15. 15. "It's hard to fight when the fight ain't fair" 

    Change | Fearless 

  16. 16. "Yesterday I found out about you. Even now just looking at you feels wrong" 

    Babe | Written by Taylor and sung by Sugarland ft Taylor on their album Bigger (Taylor also performed this as a suprise song on her Reputation tour, once solo and once with suprise guest Sugarland, she also appears in the songs music video) 

  17. 17. "We are alone with our changing minds. We fall in love 'till it hurts or bleeds or fades in time" 

    State of Grace | Red

  18. 18. "This is a state of grace. This is a worthwhile fight. Love is a ruthless game, unless you play it good and right." 

    State of Grace | Red

  19. 19. "Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly"

    Red | Red 

  20. 20. "Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you're already flying through the free fall Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all" 

    Red | Red

  21. 21. "Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes. Tell myself it's time now, gotta let go." 

    Red | Red (I'm not sure if you're noticing a pattern, but clearly Red was snubbed at the grammys. I mean LOOK at these lyrics.)

  22. 22. "I can't decide if it's a choice. Getting swept away."

    Treacherous | Red

  23. 23. "And all we are is skin and bone. Trained to get along. Forever going with the flow, But you're friction." 

    Treacherous | Red 

  24. 24. "Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much, And maybe this thing was a masterpiece 'til you tore it all up." 

    All too well | Red (Just want to give a shoutout to the girl at the secret event in Chicago who went all out singing this song and made Taylor laugh. It was truly iconic.) 

  25. 25. "Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise. So casually cruel in the name of being honest." 

    All too well | Red
