After the singer’s first single off her new album, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” you’d think she’d sworn off men forever. But it turns out, she feels you can move on and fall in love again.
There has been so much talk lately about the guys Taylor Swift has dated and the songs she has written about them, including the first single off her new album Red, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” But it turns out the song is just the beginning of the story.
The second single off the album is called “Begin Again” and seems to start where the last song left off.
“It’s actually a song about kind of when you’ve gotten through a really bad relationship and you finally dust yourself off and go on that first date after a horrible breakup,” she told Good Morning America. “And the vulnerability that goes along with all of that.”
The lyrics for the song show how Swift just wanted to move on after a bad relationship:
“Took a deep breath in the mirror. He didn’t like it when I wore high heels, but I do. Turned the lock and put my headphones on. He always said he didn’t get this song but I do, I do.”
Because Swift regularly sings about her relationships, her fans know the heartbreak she has been through. When she meets someone new, the songs also show her emotion.
“And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid. I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ’cause he never did. I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end. But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again.”
Swift is currently dating 18-year-old Conor Kennedy after a bout of bad relationships. Her album Red will be out in October, and the remainder of the songs will undoubtedly show us the state of mind she was in when she wrote them. But the second single shows that Swift feels that there is hope in love.
“For the first time, what’s past is past.”
