To clarify, yes I am embarrassed about writing a story about a Taylor Swift song.
I think the only people in the world who aren’t Carly Rae Jepsen fans are the people who haven’t heard the first 45 seconds of ‘Higher’.
There’s a lot of the 1989, Red, Speak Now and Taylor Swift in this new brand shining Taylor, those eras will not die, they will forever live with her and her past, current and future Reputation. So well done, Taylor Swift, you’ve done it again! Even though I still think Jake Gyllenhaal should take one for the team and break her heart a tiny bit again, so she can write the record we truly deserve.
Why do people often say they are okay when they are actually far from being okay?
There are certain songs that I avoid at all costs, songs that I used to love, songs that I can no longer listen to without seeing your face in front of me. Without reaching for my phone and fighting the temptation to text you.
In the sound of your laughter, I could hear a musicians’s hands skillfully caress the silver strings of a harp. And concealed deep beneath your cautious guard lay the slow croon of a saxophone alone on the smoky stage of a dimly lit bar.
The duo’s song leaves each of us with this simple, powerful message: We are not alone.
Type Four – the Romantic. Fours can be a little…melodramatic. It’s not their fault Nobody understands them.
It’s a head banger, a body thrower song. Her power comes from her observations, her coy lyrical style that is both direct and indirect – all while portraying an honest girl’s journey.
The girl can sing, play guitar, and master the piano. However first and foremost to me, she was a writer. She was a storyteller.
