I like the way she says it, heartbreak is the national anthem!

We seem to have become the pain generation. Back in the 90’s artists would always sing about love, to a point where I felt like they were always going to die of a LOVE overdose. Who was to know that the generation NOW wants to make songs only about heart breaks. Maybe my generation did die of a love overdose? Or maybe the world is conspiring to give the heartbreakers their time in the spotlight? Pain seems to have become the new high.

But some things still haven’t changed, I think Taylor Swift manages to sum up the wild errors of a young idealistic mind in her song new romantics. Some of my favourite parts of the song are

We wait for trains that just aren’t coming. why were you waiting for things to happen? what did you do to make it happen? nothing substitutes hard work and sincere effort.

We’re so young but we’re on the road to ruin. We play dumb but we know exactly what we’re doing. The early 20’s something mind that assumes that instinct is better than knowledge! If you’ve grown older, you’d know instincts grow sharper with knowledge.

We need love, but all we want is danger. Can someone help me out here? How many times have you fallen in love knowing fully well you are with the wrong person?

We team up then switch sides like a record changer. again?

The rumors are terrible and cruel, But honey, most of them are true. Let’s accept it, rumors don’t create themselves.

The best people in life are free. Ok! Bambi you lost me here, Free from what? Let’s face it your brain still wants to be an idealist even after knowing reality.

So Why am I still talking about Taylor and her crazy song? So the release of this song was just before the MET gala and the outfit worn by her on the occasion gave me an awesome idea of how to wear the dress. We have become a generation that finds happiness in dark places.

P.S don’t mind the dirt boots it’s raining in Bangalore

I’m surprised! But why can’t one person actually choose to talk about the one thing all the new bunch of kids are singing. We have spent one entire lifetime calling men womanizers and calling women loving and caring ones. really? I didn’t know! I’d be surprised if anyone of my boyfriends called me loving and caring.

We’ve sincerely tried to be good for you. Then it slowly starts falling apart and my mind starts working round the clock to figure it out. When it becomes the most difficult task, we need to shake it off.

However days go by, and then you find this cute love. You spend time thinking it’s true love, slowly it becomes the blank space you are trying to fill but becomes our wildest dream eventually we get sick of the same old love but we can’t keep our hands to ourselves. And then we finally want to get out of the woods and into the clear.

Does my story sound familiar? I’m sure you all still live in denial if you aren’t saying yes. It’s ok I guess because even after coming into the clear you might just get stuck in someone else’s wild dream. Are you a guy? do you think your story is any different?
