Dear Taylor Alison Swift, Well first of all I should tell you that Love story is my
absolute favourite song of all time, this year for school I decorated all of my
books with pictures of you on the front cover and your song lyrics written on
the back and my name is Carly Hahn. I am from Australia and I’m born on the 5th of February 1999. I have been a swiftie for as long as I can remember. Your lyrics are the definition of my life and when everything goes crashing down I can always count on you to pick me back up again.
I have never met or been noticed by you Tay but I am still ones of the most dedicated and supportive swifties you’ll ever find. 2008 was the year that I became a swiftie so I would
have been only 9 years old. You have been a part of my life for 7 years.
Why am I telling you all this you ask? Well it’s because you’ve decided to share your life story with me so I think it’s only fair to share my life with you, the woman who I have basically grown up with my whole life. I am a 16 year old girl who is currently writing this to you in the hope that you might see this, there isn’t a big chance that you will because I’m just one fan in a billion who
adores you, but I want that little possibility of you actually reading this to
be there. I remember for my 13th birthday my sister and I got tickets
to go see you in concert at your Speak Now world tour in Brisbane, the seats
weren’t that good because they were near the back but the concert was
absolutely amazing and I hope you know that you have created beautiful memories for me too because I will NEVER forget what that crowd looked and sounded like.
I remember wearing your concert t-shirt that I bought at the merchandise store
and I wrote a 13 on my hand. I also went to your RED tour in Brisbane as well,
I wasn’t originally going to go because it was too expensive but I was lucky
enough to win 2 sets of tickets! The seats were at the back (again) but I still
had the time of my life. My sister (Kaitlyn) and I made a poster that says
loving you is RED and made 2 shirts with my best friend Jessica but since she couldn’t come to the concert I brought my sister with me, we made those things because I heard that you had this thing were your mum goes into the crowd to choose some incredibly lucky fans to get better seats or to even get to meet you! But sadly I wasn’t lucky enough. I also wrote some lyrics to love story on my arm and I had red face paint on, I went all out at this concert. “I learned a really valuable lesson recently and I hope that someday you do too because it kind of makes things easier when you learn, that it’s not our job to make people like us if they don’t want to” I remember when you said this at the RED concert I went to and it was really inspiring and that is coming from a girl who is paranoid that no one likes her.
You are an amazing role model for heaps of people and I hope you know how much of an inspiration you are to everyone’s life. I have never gotten the opportunity to meet or get noticed by you but I will keep trying my hardest and do everything I possibly can because my life will not be complete until I get the chance to meet you. Seeing videos of the 1989 world tour was more than I could have ever imagined it would be. I know that you put your heart and soul into the show and work so hard on it. I wish that I could come to see you but unfortunately I haven’t got tickets, I’m still working on that but if I do end up getting to go then I really hope that I will
be able to meet you. The cover song Untouchable is living proof that you can make any song your own and you’re an amazing singer. It doesn’t even sound like the original version but it’s still soooo good. Life is a funny thing you know. I think most of us fear reaching the end of our lives and looking back and regretting the times we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say I love you. When we should’ve said I’m sorry. So there’s a time for silence and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel and you so clearly know what you need to say. You’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait, I think you should Speak Now.
This is my absolute favourite thing I think you have ever said, it brings back
so many memories of the Speak Now tour and also helps me make the choices in my life. I’m also starting to look at life as if I were an 80 year old because of what you said about you know, going out to breakfast with your dad: as a teenager you would be like no, I want to but as an 80 year old you
would go because you don’t have that much time left with them and I want to do as much as I can throughout my life and not hold back anymore so thank you Taylor swift for making me realize that we have to live our lives to the fullest. I would also like to thank you for introducing me to another one of my best friends and her name is Melanie thatsreallyswiftofyou , I don’t know if you would remember her or not because you’ve liked and commented on her picture before but Taylor, it’s because of you that I have formed this beautiful friendship.
I’ve been supporting you for a very long time now that I don’t think I could ever stop even if I tried (which I wouldn’t). It’s an automatic response for me and I think it’s a good thing that you’re my role model because you’re such an amazing person, there has never been one time when I’ve thought
of you in a bad way. I am so glad that I get to have you to look up to. It’s a
ritual for me that every time I get into the car I automatically grab my CD
case and put on one of your albums and I love how every single one of your
songs are so relatable and you can interpret them into the situations that you are going through and the lyrics have so much meaning in them, I just love it.
I’m the quiet girl in school who sits at the back of the classroom and doesn’t
say much, I’m starting to break slowly away from that because of you and
knowing that you kind of went through that as well gives me comfort. I am also
very worried because I’m in grade 11 and I still have no idea what I want to do
with my life and I have no idea who I want to be, maybe a photographer or
dietician or something like that, but all I know at the moment is that I want
to do something extraordinary, and when I wake up in the morning I want to
think, wow, that was a great choice. I love the fact that you have worked so
hard to be where you are today and you really deserve it Taylor you really do,
don’t ever forget that and I love how you don’t take it for granted because you
know that this is what you’ve always dreamed about and that’s kind of how I
want to feel, having a sense of knowing who I am and who I’m going to be.
Listening to your song fifteen gives me a sense that everything will be ok and
that it is ok not to have everything figured out yet. I just want to take a second to congratulate you on the
album 1989, it is so good, and I love how in the CD case there are 13
Polaroids, I think of it as a little present for the swifties who have been
here from the start, it’s like saying thank you for being with me for all these
years and for the new swifties its saying welcome to the family. It is so amazing how you invited fans to your
house, which was so kind of you and that would have been the highlight of their life. There is a phenomenal amount of trust that you share with your swifties
and I love that because you know that without them you wouldn’t be where you
are today, some celebrities have a line that they don’t cross with how far they
let their fans into their lives and Taylor has absolutely demolished that line
and it that’s not love then I don’t know what is. I love it how you have
changed but you’ve changed for the better and you are still the same Taylor you were a couple of years ago, it’s just you’ve matured and you’ve grown from your mistakes and have learnt new things. It’s really great that you have been interacting with fans online because it makes them believe that you really do care about them, even though you can’t get around to every single person, you try your best to acknowledge everyone and make them feel so special even if it is just by liking their photo on Tumblr or Instagram. You are the absolute master of taking risks. You have been taking them your whole life and they’ve shaped you into the amazing artist and person you are today. All the risks were definitely worth it. I really appreciate how much you have done for us all.
It’s horrible to hear about your mum having cancer but I know she’ll get
through this. She has so much support from her beautiful family, friends and
all the swifties, so I wish her all the best and I hope she gets well soon, she
is an incredible woman. One last thing, thank you for living your life the way
you want despite what people say about you, thank you for being here for me
through your lyrics and music, thank you for saying the things that I can’t put
into words, thank you for letting your fans into your life, thank you for
picking up your guitar, thank you for being fearless and not being afraid to
speak now or burn red or dream like you’re in 1989 and last of all thank you
for being Taylor swift. I will continue being a swiftie for years and years to come and that’s a promise. I know that I have invested my life and soul into
supporting you and I’m 100% happy with that choice.
-Love Carly💕
P.s. Sorry this was so long.
