Red Album lyric note hints

Taylor Swift likes to give her fans clues to what her songs are about, easter eggs if you will, much like the Beatles did with their music, "They used to play around with secret messages in their records, I figured you can't play a CD backward, but with encoding stuff into the lyrics, I was able to get a similar kind of thing across." (Taylor Swift tells USA Today)




She has put them in every album, and with the release of "Red", it is no different. The clues are there, some are obvious, FOR ETHEL, HYANNIS PORT, MAPLE LATTES. Others not as obvious and will require a little digging, WONT STOP TILL ITS OVER, WHEN YOU SAW ME DANCING. Here are the hints and hidden messages from the "Red" Album. What do you think? I definitely have my ideas.
  1. State of Grace, Lyrics I LOVE YOU DOESNT COUNT AFTER GOODBYE
  2. Red, Lyrics SAG
  3. Treacherous, Lyrics WONT STOP TILL ITS OVER
  4. I Knew You Were Trouble, Lyrics WHEN YOU SAW ME DANCING
  5. All Too Well, Lyrics MAPLE LATTES
  6. 22, Lyrics ASHLEY DIANNA CLAIRE SELENA
  7. I Almost Do, Lyrics WROTE THIS INSTEAD OF CALLING
  8. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Lyrics WHEN I STOPPED CARING WHAT YOU THOUGHT
  9. Stay Stay Stay, Lyrics DAYDREAMING ABOUT REAL LOVE
  10. The Last Time, Lyrics LA ON YOUR BREAK
  11. Holy Ground, Lyrics WHEN YOU CAME TO THE SHOW IN SD
  12. Sad Beaufitul Tragic, Lyrics WHILE YOU WERE ON A TRAIN
  13. The Lucky One, Lyrics WOULDNT YOU LIKE TO KNOW
  14. Everything Has Changed, Lyrics HYANNIS PORT
  15. Starlight, Lyrics FOR ETHEL
  16. Begin Again, Lyrics I WEAR HEELS NOW

  1. we are never ever getting back together is "when i stopped caring" there's a capitalised "i" when she says "I've had enough" :)also can you explain the relevance of the hints you know? :))

  2. "state of grace" is I love you doesnt count after goodbye. The last one has an I in the beg. so, I wear heels now. There is also an A before the word train in "sad beautiful tragic".
    Thanks for this post! it helped me on "sad beautiful tragic" I completely missed the I in train, and couldnt for the life of me figure out how ATRAN was a word hahaha :)
