The Moment I Knew – Taylor Swift’s brilliant young mind

I love this new song by Taylor Swift. I always love her lyrics. I’m not sure how she is so young, but is able to write down exactly how so many girls actually feel about what goes on in their life. And as embarrassing as that sounds coming from someone in their late twenties, if you don’t think it’s true then you are probably not a normal girl. (no offense!) I’m sorry, I love Taylor Swift and as many 12 year old girls are screaming at her concerts, you can probably ask just as many 20 or 30 year olds and they’ll tell you they remember feeling exactly like one of her songs at some point in her life. I do love her songs, but I really love her lyrics more. They are just very relatable.

I don’t know why, but I have just really been liking this song right now. I’m pretty sure most of us all know how that feeling when someone physically does not show up for something important. I think it hurts just as much if not more when maybe they don’t emotionally show up either. I’m not sure if she only meant to write this for the physical part or if I’m stretching the meaning because I want it to mean both, but that’s why I like music. It can mean whatever you want it to. It can be there for whatever you want it to be there for. I tend to get pretty emotionally connected to music, but I guess that’s usually the point of why it’s made right?

Anyway, I hope you like the song too.  

The Moment I Knew

You should have been there,

Should have burst through the door,

with that
‘baby I’m right here’ smile,

and it would
have felt like,

a million little shining stars that just aligned.


And I would have been so happy…


 

Christmas lights glisten,

I’ve got my eye on the door,

just waiting for you
to walk in,

But the time is ticking,

 People ask me how I’ve been

as I comb back through my memory


How you said you’d be here,

you said you’d be here.



 

And it was like slow motion,

standing there in my party dress,

in red
lipstick,

with no-one to impress,

and they’re
all laughing,

as I’m looking around the room,

but there’s one thing missing…


And that was the moment I knew.



 

And the hours pass by,

now I just want to be alone,

but your close friends
always seem to know

when there’s something really wrong,

so they follow me down the hall,

and there in the
bathroom

I try not to fall apart,

as the
sinking feeling starts,

and I say hopelessly…

he said he’d be here.



 

And it was like slow motion,

standing there in my party dress,

in red
lipstick,

with no-one to impress,

and they’re
all laughing

and asking me all about you

but there’s one thing missing…


And that was the moment I knew.



 

What do you say

when tears are streaming down your face

 in front of
everyone you know?



And what do you do when the one

 who means the most to you

 is the one who
didn’t show?



 

You should have been here,

and I would have been so happy.



 

And it was like slow motion,

standing there in my party dress,

in red
lipstick,

with no-one to impress,

and they’re
all sitting around me singing

‘Happy Birthday To You’

and there’s one thing
missing…

and that was the moment I knew.


 

You called me later

 and said ‘I’m sorry I didn’t make it, ’

and I said, ‘I’m
Sorry too.’



And that was the moment I knew…
