I think, what I wish we would all do is be a little bit nicer to ourselves. We have enough going on out in the world that could make us feel terrible, or not special enough, or not cool enough. We don’t need our own minds telling us that too.
Taylor wrote Enchanted about Adam Young and he recorded his own version of the song changing a few parts of the lyrics for say that he was in love with her too <3 @taylorswift
He also wrote a letter for Tay:
I’ll be the first to admit I’m a rather shy boy and since music is the most eloquent form of communication I can muster, I decided to record something for you – a sort of a “reply” to the breathtaking song on your current record. This is what I wanted so badly to tell you in person but could never quite put into words:
Everything about you is lovely. You’re an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale, and above all, I just want you to know… I was enchanted to meet you too.
This is the part when he finally say that he was so in love with her:
“Taylor I’ll spend my whole life wondering if you knew I was enchanted to meet you too I was never in love with someone else I never had somebody waiting on me ‘Cause you were all of my dreams come true And I just wish you knew Taylor I was so in love with you”
Yeah, I’m all about the music and the song or whatever it is. If there was a song that was kicking around on her side or my side and felt like the right move to make, definitely. I love her music and I love the direction she’s gone with pop, she’s pretty diverse, as well. I love how she picks a game-plan and just goes for it. That, I really admire.
Adam Young of Owl City on him having a musical back-and-forth with Taylor Swift and if he would want to work with her in an official capacity.
These days, the speed music works on the internet, buddies of mine send me new releases before they break up with the band, get signed, then pull everything down from the web after we all go apeshit about the songs and 404 all the tracks or videos. This is also one of those records where the only hard part is figuring out which single to post.
This is indie songwriter and guitarist of ABADABAD‘s first official full-length self-released (for now) called Sweet Nothing LP. All songs written, performed, and recorded in his bedroom "The Haunted Casino of Allston (RIP) between April 2010-December 2012.“ Album artwork by Luke Alvine.
That song is about pining away for if you’re ever going to see someone again-walking away too early. It was about this guy that I met in New York City, and I had talked to him on email or something before, but I had never met him. And meeting him, it was this overwhelming feeling of: I really hope that you’re not in love with somebody. And the whole entire way home, I remember the glittery New York City buildings passing by, and then just sitting there thinking, am I ever going to talk to this person again? And that pining away for a romance that may never even happen, but all you have is this hope that it could, and the fear that it never will. I started writing that in the hotel room when I got back. Because it just was this positive, wistful feeling of: I hope you understand just how much I loved meeting you. I hope that you know that meeting you was not something that I took lightly, or just in passing. And I think my favorite part of that song is the part where, in the bridge, it goes to sort of a stream of consciousness of ‘Please don’t be in love with someone else/Please don’t have somebody waiting on you.’ Because at that moment, that’s exactly what my thoughts were. And it feels good to write exactly what your thoughts were in a certain moment.
