Someone once told me time will seem to move faster as you get older and I’m starting to think that’s true. Has it really been one whole year since “1989” came out? Hard to believe – but not so much a surprise that we’re still all enthralled by Taylor Swift’s best record and pop masterpiece.
Just stumbled across the performed she did of “Out of the Woods” on solo piano, and it’s incredibly gorgeous. I’m really impressed with her vocal on the bridge, it’s strong and soaring but intimate.
How many ways will we will hear this album re-imagined? I’m a little worried about fatigue, but it hasn’t hit yet, as I find myself still wanting to hear these songs. Time to g home and play all these songs over again, and count down the days til the Ryan Adams’ vinyl drops.
“Remember when you hit the brakes too soon
Twenty stitches in a hospital room
When you started crying
Baby, I did too
But when the sun came up
I was looking at you.
Remember when we couldn’t take the heat
I walked out, I said, I’m setting you free
But the monsters turned out to be just trees
When the sun came up
You were looking at me.”
~Out of the Woods
Taylor Swift, 1989
