The other big change on 1989 is that for the first time in years, there are no diss tracks dishing about Swift’s exes. A few of the songs are about her relationships and love life, but they’re mostly wistful and nostalgic, not finger-pointy or score-settling. “Different phases of your life have different levels of deep, traumatizing heartbreak,” Swift says. “And in this period of my life, my heart was not irreparably broken. So it’s not as boy-centric of an album, because my life hasn’t been boycentric.
I wanna be that girl… The girl you can’t stop thinking about all the time. The only girl you ever want to talk to. The girl you talk to your friends about. The girl you introduce to your family. The girl you dream about growing old with and having a family. The girl that can actually put a real smile on your face and who makes you laugh until you cry. The girl you can be your complete self around. The girl you love to death and would do anything for her. I wanna be that girl.

Le montagne sono le grandi cattedrali della terra, con i loro portali di roccia, i mosaici di nubi, i cori dei torrenti, gli altari di neve, le volte di porpora scintillanti di stelle.
- Chiedimi perché vado in montagna. Chiedimi perché, quando il resto mi sta stretto, l’unica via è il sentiero. Chiedimelo.
- Perché in montagna non puoi sprecare fiato per parole inutili. Lo devi conservare per arrivare in cima, e il resto è silenzio o parole gentili. …
look me in the eye and tell me you don’t find me attractive
look me in the heart and tell me you won’t go
look me in the eye and promise no love’s like our love
look me in the heart and unbreak broken, it won’t happen
The Fault in Our Stars (2014)I am in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void and that oblivion is inevitable and that we’re all doomed and there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust and the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have and I am in love with you.
