Not only has 18-year-old Taylor Swift broken records (youngest person to write all the songs on her triple-platinum self titled debut album at age 16) but she has written music that is so relatable to every person has this planet that has some form of emotions. From the girl with a crush on a guy to the bad boyfriend to the perfect relationships to the girls who aren't just fitting in they way the wish they were. Her second album is due out in the fall and many of the tracks are availble as live concert performances on youtube.
If you have even a smidgen of free time, go on youtube or itunes and take a listen. You won't regret it.

A few years had gone and come aroundWe were sitting at our favorite spot in townAnd you looked at me, got down on one kneeTake me back to the time we walked down the aisleOur whole town came and our mamas criedYou said I do and I did tooTake me home were we met so many years beforeWe'll rock our babies on that very front porchAfter all this time, you and I'll be eighty-seven; you'll be eighty-nineI'll still look at you like the stars that shineIn the sky, oh my my my...
