Top 10 Hugot Lines from Taylor Swift

Top 10 Hugot Lines from Taylor Swift

When in Manila, we can see (and hear) Taylor Swift everywhere! Her songs are played on almost every radio station, her concert ads are all over TV, and even online, there’s so much hype awaiting the Manila leg of the Red tour. Read our pre-event article on it here: Taylor Swift’s Red Hot Livery Launch at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The news of Taylor returning to the Philippines was too good to be true until she made the announcement herself in this video

As a self-professed fan of Taylor Swift – who can’t go to her concert :( – what I love about her the most are her song lyrics. They’re distinctly relatable and vulnerable, which is amazing coming from a 7-time Grammy winner and the first in Billboard’s top 40 musician moneymakers. 

Some people point out the long list of guys she’s been linked to (and how a huge chunk of her songs are break-up songs), but these songs have helped people get through really bad days.

While expressing a sad emotion doesn’t completely erase the pain, it’s a relief to find a song that perfectly expresses it, and a comfort to realize that the grief is shared by others, too. 

So, in celebration of her second visit to Manila and in appreciation of all of the eureka moments when Taylor perfectly captured an emotion, I compiled some powerful #hugot lines from her songs (along with cute GIFs of Taylor being absolutely gorgeous and beautiful even while she’s crying).

Top 10 Hugot Lines from Taylor Swift

1. For moments when we realize that those we love the most will also hurt us the most. 

“You call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest.”

– “All Too Well” from the album Red

 2. For moments we look back and reconcile with our past. 
 
When all you wanted was to be wanted, wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now. Back then, I swore I was gonna marry him someday, but I realized some bigger dreams of mine. I’ve found time can heal almost anything and you just might find who you’re supposed to be.” 
 
– “Fifteen” from the album Fearless

3.  For when you’re at a crossroad and can’t seem to figure out whether you should run back or go forward. 
 
I don’t know how to be something you miss.”
 
– “Last Kiss”, from the album Speak Now

4. For frustrating moments when we try and fail to live in the present.
 
“Forgetting you is like trying to know somebody you’ve never met. But loving him was red.”
 
– “Red”, from the album Red

5. For moments you choose to regret or embrace the past as it is. 
 
“Regretting him is like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong.”
 
– “Red”, from the album Red

6. For moments when the flashbacks and echoes are guilty pleasures and glorified versions of the past. 
 
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes. Tell myself it’s time now, gotta let go. But moving on from him is impossible. I still see it all in my head, burning red.”
 
– “Red”, from the album Red
 
 
7. For bittersweet goodbyes. 
 
“But did it ever occur to you that I can’t say hello to you and risk another goodbye?”
 
– “I Almost Do” from the album Red
 Taylor Swift Red Tour Philippines
 
8. For moments when our heart feels like exploding from all of the questions that we can’t ask and the messages that we can’t say. 
 
“In a box beneath my bed is a letter you haven’t read three summers back.”
 
– “Tim McGraw” from Taylor’s self-titled album
 
 
9. For frustrating moments when there were too many things left unsaid, or pseudo-farewells left without closure. 
 
“So many things that I wish you knew, but the story of us might be ending soon.”
 
– “Story of Us”, from the album Speak Now

10.  For moments when you are reduced to simply being (Facebook) friends.
 
“So I watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep. And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe. And I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are.”
 
– “Last Kiss”, from the album Speak Now
 
No matter how awesome or painful an emotion is, I always love it when I find a quote or a song that captures it. After all, life is a series of plots and scenes – and who would want their life’s movie played on mute? ;) 
 
How about you? Whose songs are the soundtrack of your life? Let me know @rebeccaallee :)
