inflashbacksandechoes:

one of the most underrated things in Taylor’s songwriting is the way she groups words together and the effect it has, like “sink and drown and die” or “break and burn and end” or “something good and right and real” or “a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep”

like in each of those cases each word has a very specific effect and when you group it together, in one short phrase you can get a beautiful image of what Taylor is trying to convey. “break and burn and end” conveys a specific order: she thought that love broke apart, went up in flames, then came to an end. it’s similar in komh: you see that the secret is something she’s first hoping for: a word without too much passion. but by the end, she’s dying to keep it: it shows how quickly the love became incredibly important to her.

I just love that this is a technique she’s used in so many different contexts and I think it’s a really intelligent way of showing how she’s feeling
