The Most Underrated Taylor Swift Lyrics

I believe Taylor Swift to be the greatest lyricalist of our generation. Her songs are true works of art, each one of them telling a story and having a clear message, whether that be to dump your ex because they aren't showing the same level of commitment as you, or to get back out into the world after going through a dark period because that's the only way you can become free again.
No matter what the meaning behind her songs, they are always beautifully penned and you can tell that the tracks on her albums have not just been scribbled down quickly because she wants to release new music to get more money. She draws from personal experience and takes time to craft each tune to perfection.
I wanted to share with you some of my favourite T Swizzle lyrics which I think didn't get enough recognition. I often want to scream whenever I hear these lyrics, simply because it makes me think "SERIOUSLY? HOW CAN ANYONE COME UP WITH SUCH A CLASS LINE LIKE THAT?"
