The 30 greatest Taylor Swift songs

Here are my top 30 Taylor Swift songs with some of my favorite lyrics, because why not? In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Reputation, which may be her best album.

30) Mine (Speak Now)
I was a flight risk with a fear of fallin’
Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts

29) Ours (Speak Now)
So don’t you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard’

28) I Almost Do (Red)
I bet this time of night you’re still up.
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week.
I bet you’re sitting in your chair by the window looking out at the city.
And I hope sometimes you wonder about me

27) Call It What You Want (Reputation)
Starry eyes sparkin’ up my darkest night

26) Forever & Always (Fearless)
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone

25) King of My Heart (Reputation)
Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep

24) Everything Has Changed (Red)
All I know is a new found grace
All my days, I’ll know your face
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

23) Style (1989)
Long drive, could end in burning flames or paradise

22) 22 (Red)
We’re happy free confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical oh yeah

21) White Horse (Fearless)
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

20) Red (Red)
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong

19) Don’t Blame Me (Reputation)
I’ve been breaking hearts a long time
And toying with them older guys
Just playthings for me to use

18) Teardrops on My Guitar (Taylor Swift)
Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won’t see

17) Begin Again (Red)
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 eight months
Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

16) Starlight (Red)
Don’t you dream impossible things?

15) Fifteen (Fearless)
Don’t forget to look before you fall

14) State of Grace (Red)
Just twin fire signs
Four blue eyes
So you were never a saint

And I’ve loved in shades of wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mosaic broken hearts

13) Long Live (Speak Now)
Long live the walls we crashed through
I had the time of my life with you

12) Love Story (Fearless)
So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet ’cause we’re dead if they knew
So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while

11) …Ready For It? (Reputation)
Every love I’ve known in comparison is a failure

10) New Year’s Day (Reputation)
You and me forevermore

9) You Belong With Me (Fearless)
I’m the one who makes you laugh
When you know you’re about to cry

8) The Story of Us (Speak Now)
This is looking like a contest
Of who can act like they care less
But I liked it better when you were on my side

7) Delicate (Reputation)
Sometimes when I look into your eyes
I pretend you’re mine, all the damn time

6) Dress (Reputation)
There is an indentation
In the shape of you
Only bought this dress so you could take it off
You made your mark on me, golden tattoo

5) Sparks Fly (Speak Now)
And lead me up the staircase
Won’t you whisper soft and slow
And I’m captivated by you baby
Like a fireworks show
Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain

4) Enchanted (Speak Now)
The lingering question kept me up
2 AM, who do you love?

3) Back to December (Speak Now)
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye

2) Getaway Car (Reputation)
The ties were black, the lies were white
In shades of gray in candlelight
I wanted to leave him
I needed a reason

1) All Too Well (Red)
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
