Taylor Swift: The Story Behind 'Speak Now'

Taylor Swift: The Story Behind 'Speak Now'

Taylor Swift gets animated with her hands as she sits down to tell the true story behind the title track of her new album, “Speak Now.”

The 20-year-old country starlet shared in the video, “The song was actually inspired by one of my friends. She was telling me a story about her childhood sweetheart-crush guy. They were together in high school and then went their separate ways. I understood it as they were going to get back together. She comes in and tells me that he’s getting married. He had met this other girl who was a horrible person. She made him stop talking to his friends, cut off his family ties, and made him so isolated. And randomly, I was like, ‘Oh, are you going to speak now?’”

Check out the rest of the song’s story from T and a sneak peek below!

    @Listen to mayday parade: Heh, just what I was thinking. Who knows, it could be someone else she’s referring to but the media has made sure we think of Joe or Taylor Lautner first. Speak Now is going to be a great album! =] Can’t wait.

    I think it’s nice how much thought and emotion she puts into her music. I love the lyrics. But in all honesty, it sounds like all her other songs. But i’m still excited for the album.

    Guys, she & Taylor Lautner weren’t actually together. They went on a few dates and that was it. & that whole Joe thing happened a few years ago, come on I’m sure she’s over it by now. Her songs are about past relationships/crushes & those were NOT her ONLY relationships.

    ANYWAY, love her & can’t wait for the album <3 :)

    I think that her album ” Speak Now ” is a great album…… Its great that she based it off of somebody else and not her…… about her crush guy…… She has some really good songs from some really good feelings in her heart………. <3
