Lyric Hints

Taylor Swift likes to give her fans hidden messages and 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)

    2. Hi, just want to say that your blog is great, thank you for writing this and for loving Taylor. I feel sorry for Taylor and Harry since I like them being together. They are just normal people being under too much pressure of scrutiny. As a fan of Haylor, I have romantic stories about them made up in my mind but whether they are together again or not I believe they will find their true love one day. When they get old and think about what they went through, maybe both of them can sit down and realize that everything happens for a reason, like, we were once young and carefree like that, that you changed me in some way, I would not be myself today without you and then can be friends. I think I'm insane now because I've been obsessed with Taytay and her songs and Harry recently. Again, thanks a lot for writing this blog :D

      1. In the booklet that comes with the physical CD, there are lyrics to each of the songs written almost entirely in lowercase letters. Taylor capitalizes seemingly random letters throughout the words and if you take the capitalized letters, they spell out the hints above. The only exception is that on 1989, all of the lyrics were capitalized except for the letters of the hints, which were all lowercase.

        For example, in I Knew You Were Trouble, the lyrics in the booklet look like this: "once upon a time, a feW mistakes ago / i was in your sigHts, you got mE aloNe." If you take the capitalized letters, it spells out WHEN. In the hint listed above, the first word is WHEN. If you'd continue for the entire song, you'd get WHEN YOU SAW ME DANCING. The reverse is true for 1989, with the example of How You Get the Girl: "STAND THERE LIKE A GHOSt / ShAKING FROM THe RAIN / SHE'LL OPEn UP THE DOOR." It spells out "then" (the full hint is "Then one day he came back").
