A lot of the time when people ask me about songwriting the most popular question I get is, ‘How do you know where to start?’ which is a good question. I guess the simple answer would be I just write about the things that haunt me the most…And you know, that sounds kind of depressing, but good things can haunt you the same way as bad things can haunt you. Good memories can leave even more of a mark or a scar on your heart as the bad times.
Happiness isn’t a constant. You get fleeting glimpses. You have to fight for those moments, but they make it all worth it.
Taylor in New York City on July 14
It’s never been about trying to look well-behaved. It’s just how I am. I guess it’s a weird thing to be 19 and not ever have been drunk, but for me, it just feels normal because I don’t really know any other way. I don’t know if I’d be comfortable getting wasted and not knowing what I’ve said. That doesn’t mean when I’m older I won’t have a glass of wine. I just don’t think it’s such a strange thing for me not to be wasted all the time.”
