“Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.”—Taylor Swift (via sydneyjoanne)
“I don’t really write songs in a structure. I write about my life. And it helps me to feel better about anything causing me pain or confusion. It’s a little addictive because it helps you figure things out in your life. If I think of a line that paints a picture, I’ll write it down. Some [songs] come four lines at a time and I’ll have a chorus. Other times I really have to work at it. But I have to say that my favorite songs were all written really quick.”—Taylor Swift [2011 issue of Philadelphia Style] (via tswiftdaily)

I’m writing you on a summer afternoon in Nashville. All the idealistic markers of a perfect day are presenting themselves right now in this moment. I mean, we’re talking chirping birds, blinding sunshine, a just-the-right-amount breeze.. There’s the distant sound of power washing from someone else’s deck and my feet are up on the patio table. I just ate a really awesome sandwich. Such a simple, good day. And so I just wanted to say hi.
Hey followers! I worked super hard on this remix, and I really hope you all enjoy this. The begining always makes me cry :D. I love Taylor and her band. My favorite parts would have to be the beginning, and if you listen the whole way through, there is A SURPRISE at the end of the song. So, thank you for taking time out to listen to this Remix I put together of Long Live, and thank you all amazing followers, for following me.
“No artist, male or female, of any genre, has sold as many albums as Taylor has over the late aughts and early part of this decade. The 9.8 million in album sales Swift has piled up since the start of 2009 include her still selling self-titled debut from 2006; her 2008 Grammy-winning blockbuster, Fearless; and her latest, 2010’s “Speak Now”, which sold more than a million copies in its first week last November.”—Rolling Stone (via tswiftfashion)
