Taylor Swift talks “Speak Now”
[lastfm]Taylor Swift [/lastfm]discussed her new album and the songs being more “confessions” than anything else!
“These songs are confessions,” Taylor told The Boot, “and every single confession on this album is sort of like that moment when you stand up at a wedding and say, ‘Wait!’ And whether it’s saying, ‘Wait, I’m sorry,’ or ‘Wait, what you said really hurt me,’ … or ‘Wait, I secretly love you,’ you’re making confessions and you’re speaking now. The moment will slip by if you don’t say anything.”
“You write about things nobody knows you went through,” Taylor admits, explaining that she’s more comfortable putting her personal memories to music than she is talking about them in interviews. “I don’t know any other way of writing songs than writing detailed songs that are stories in musical form … My main focus when I’m writing a song is the person I’m writing it about, what they’re going to think of it and them knowing what I feel about them. A lot of times, they don’t know exactly what I felt. Somehow I feel more comfortable saying it all to them in a song … that many more people are going to hear than if I just sent a text message! [laughs] But that’s just how I feel more comfortable expressing myself.
Taylor’s “confessions” have officially gone public, her album was released yesterday.
