I don't know why, but lately, I just can't get this Taylor Swift song out of my head. I thought maybe if I wrote a blog post about it, it'd stop haunting me.

The thing is, I've never been in the "if only I could go back and do things different" crowd. I'm happy to be just exactly where I am and the thought of going back even one day, whether to do things differently or not, just seems like masochism. :-D

But when I was listening to this song the other day, I had a real pang of "if only I could go back and do things different." I had to quickly slap some sense back into myself, but it was just proof to me of how much this song has affected me. (or is it effected? Where's Annette Lyon when you need her???)

So I found the video on YouTube and cried through the whole thing because the video was even more powerful than the song alone. So I thought if I had to cry like a baby, the rest of you would have to, as well. :o)

I hope you enjoy / get something out of / appreciate the message of this song.


  1. I'll have to come back to see the video. I think I need a good cry today. :)

  2. There are things that I wish I could change in my life, but you couldn't pay me enough to go back to being 15, 30 maybe.

  3. I adore Taylor Swift! Took kidlet to her concert and everything.

    And going back, well, I have those moments, but I'm pretty happy right where I'm at! :D

  4. I love Taylor Swift. There's such a mix of honesty and nostalgia in her lyrics that just...well, haunts me.
    This song in particular has a lot of meaning for me. I'd do a lot of different things but even if I could go back, I'd rather not just so I didn't have to live it again.

  5. I'm going to watch it now. I have a roll of T-P. I'm prepared.

  6. I love Taylor Swift's music!
    I just gave you an award at my blog.

  7. I love this song. It's never made me cry until I read your post and watched the video. Thanks a LOT!! And you got it right, it's affect. hehe


Thanks for leaving a comment! Come back soon! :o)
