Taylor Swift always says her lyrics are stories from a part of her life.
It’s amazing how she is able to write most of her songs by herself. She creates the music and lyrics and it makes for songs that are autobiographical and honest. Her fans love that about her and even if you’re not able to relate you learn to respect her talent.
Taylor’s latest single is the regretful Back To Decemberand it’s a winner. The song has Taylor looking back at how she left a boyfriend for her own freedom. She swallows her pride and decides to see him again. She keeps thinking about how she may have made the wrong decision to go out on her own. She’s wondering if she gave up everything she wanted for the unknown.
Taylor’s success has put her personal life in the spotlight of all the Hollywood-type magazines. Who she’s dating and what she’s doing are always front page news. It has to make things hard, but somehow she’s able to make good decisions. I knew what I was doing at 21 years old and I certainly made more bad decisions than good.
I’m not the typical Taylor Swift fan, but her songs have an honesty about them that makes me believe the stories she tells. Her ability to craft sweet melodies is still improving and it’s not hard to see why she’s the biggest star in all of music right now.
Songs like Back To December connect with those Taylor’s age and actually this song can connect with anybody of any age that has made decisions about relationships. Regret and second guessing always come with the territory in break ups and Taylor captured the emotion well.
It’s a big hit.
