  • i almost do - im gonna be honest i rarely listen to this song but only because i feel like crying every. damn. time and honestly i’m not emotionally strong to handle this beauty. “i bet it never ever occured to you that i can’t say hello to you and risk another goodbye” :-((( i’m so sad just thinking about it
  • we are never ever getting back together - i don’t think i’ll get over how amazing this song is??? perfect for after i almost do because you just want to GET UP AND DANCE and be ANGRY and happy at the same time????????? this song is such a JAM you can dance your ass off to it and it helps you in times of anger what a wonderful piece of pop music
  • stay stay stay - the fucking happiest song on the face of the earth????? the cute music??? taylor sounds like she’s smiling the entire song??? the little laugh???? i’m dead??? it’s so HAPPY the relationship she describes is so HAPPY this song makes me wanna smile twenty four seven it gets me so excited to be in love wow
  • the last time - this song is so heartwrenching it literally tugs at your heartstrings the harmonizing with gary the lyrics the music it’s almost haunting “and right before your eyes i’m breaking” and the BRIDGE you can practically hear the pleading in taylor’s voice you can hear her breaking im gonna cry just THINKING about it i love this song so much everyone go listen to it RIGHT NOW
  • holy ground - fuck this song is so good. it’s so so so sos os good. so happy. so reminiscent. it just gives off this vibe of dancing down the street with not a care in the world. it makes me want to move to a big city and accomplish everything i want in the world. it makes me want to fall in love and fall out of love “spinning like a girl in a brand new dress” yes pls “we blocked the noise with the sound of i need you” and taylor’s so content about the end of the relationship it’s accepting it’s looking back on this great relationship and it’s not sad but happy that it happened and that’s just such an important point to be at post breakup and i love it also the DRUMS
  • sad beautiful tragic - THIS SONG. THIS FUCKING SONG. I CRY EVERY SINGLE TIME THIS ISN’T EVEN A LIE. “LONG HANDWRITTEN NOTE DEEP IN YOUR POCKET, WORDS HOW LITTLE THEY MEAN, WHEN YOU’RE A LITTLE TOO LATE” “GOOD GIRLS, HOPEFUL THEY’LL BE, AND LONG THEY WILL WAIT” “IN DREAMS, I MEET YOU IN WARM CONVERSATION, WE BOTH WAKE, IN LONELY BEDS, DIFFERENT CITIES, AND TIME IS TAKING ITS SWEET TIME ERASING YOU, AND YOU’VE GOT YOUR DEMONS AND DARLING THEY ALL LOOK LIKE ME” BEAUTIFUL??? ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL TAYLOR HOW??? HOW DO YOU MAKE ME CRY LIKE THIS??? “DISTANCE, TIMING, BREAKDOWN, FIGHTING, SILENCE, THE TRAIN RUNS OFF ITS TRACKS, KISS ME TRY TO FIX IT, WOULD YOU JUST TRY TO LISTEN, HANG UP, GIVE UP, BUT FOR THE LIFE OF US WE CAN’T GET BACK,” im done i can’t anymore
  • the lucky one - really the only song taylor’s written about fame and it’s written BEAUTIFULLY i love the vibe it gives off like she’s a hollywood starlet the music is sooo nice and the words just flow together i honestly don’t even know how to explain it you just have to listen to it it’s amazing
  • everything has changed - this song is so SWEET it makes me want to fall in love so bad i wanna feel all of this how can you not after this song i love how it’s really only guitar at first i love how ed’s in it and how it sounds when they sing honestly their voices go together SO WELL man i love this song
  • starlight - I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH. I LOVE THE VIBE AND HOW ITS LIKE SET IN THE 40S AND THE PICTURE IT PAINTS. AND THE RHYTHM. “HE SAID LOOK AT YOU, WORRYING SO MUCH ABOUT, THINGS YOU CAN’T CHANGE. YOU’LL SPEND YOUR WHOLE LIFE SINGING THE BLUES IF YOU KEEP THINKING THAT WAY.” “DON’T YOU SEE THE STARLIGHT, STARLIGHT? DON’T YOU DREAM IMPOSSIBLE THINGS?” I LOVE THIS SONG
  • begin again - what do i even say honestly…. the music and everything is so simple but not the words and not the message and it’s SUCH an important message because the song showcases how broken taylor was after all the relationships described through this album, these crazy, turbulent loves and begin again shows like a new beginning a wonderful one filled with hope and happiness and you can hear that in her voice and when she sings “i’ve been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does is break, and burn, and end” i cry a little ngl wow what a strong ending to the album

anyway this album is literally better than anything ever in the world

"eat, baby. eat. chew. please. I know it hurts. I know it doesn’t feel good. please. I know your hunger is different than mine. I know it doesn’t taste the same as mine. imagine you could grow up all over again and pinpoint the millisecond that you started counting calories like casualties of war, mourning each one like it had a family. would you? sometimes I wonder that. sometimes I wonder if you would go back and watch yourself reappear and disappear right in front of your own eyes. and I love you so much. I am going to hold your little hand through the night. just please eat. just a little. you wrote a poem once, about a city of walking skeletons. the teacher called home because you told her you wished it could be like that here. let me tell you something about bones, baby. they are not warm or soft. the wind whistles through them like they are holes in a tree. and they break, too. they break right in half. they bruise and splinter like wood. are you hungry? I know. I know how much you hate that question. I will find another way to ask it, someday. please. the voices. I know they are all yelling at you to stretch yourself thinner. l hear them counting, always counting. I wish I had been there when the world made you snap yourself in half. I would have told you that your body is not a war-zone, that, sometimes, it is okay leave your plate empty."

I really, really want a Kirk/Spock fanmix compiled entirely of songs from Bones’ perspective. 

Songs about how “I can tell you love him, why don’t you admit it?!?!”
Songs about how “I wish you two would just kiss already because all this pussyfootin’ around is driving me crazy.”
Songs about how “Neither one of us has said you’re upset about Him even though we both know it, but I’m gonna sit here and support you anyway.”
Songs about how “I keep dropping all these stupid hints about how much your feelings are NOT UNREQUITED but somehow BOTH OF YOU still don’t listen.”
