** Perhaps the {{sensible hero|es skimpy villains}}ine realized there was a lot more to life than just a relationship with a boy. As much as she liked the guy, it seemed like a variation of LovedINotHonorMore. But then she took a look at one of the messages she had written to him and realized, hey, it's time to stop complaining, time to get off the sidelines, time to charge into the arena, and time to challenge this bitch. And it was glorious to watch.

* While not as terrifying as some of the others on this list, "Fifteen" has a small bit of "Wait a minute..." She sings that when you're fifteen, "you're on your very first date and he's got a car." Innocuous at first, until you realize that in most of the US, you only get a learner's permit at 16, and a license actually allowing you to drive a non-family member at 17 or 18, which means her first date might be a significantly older person taking advantage of a younger girl.
** There's also places where you can start learning at 15 and a half and drive on your own 16. So not necessarily creepy.
** Also, just because you're not ''legally'' supposed to drive someone you're not related to at 16, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
** According to TheOtherWiki, she was living in Tennessee when she was fifteen, where you can get a license at 16. So, not necessarily that much older of a guy.
** In most states, you can get your learner's at 15 and 6 months and your official license at 16 and 3 months. The only time when having another person in the car matters is driving with your learner's permit; you must have a licensed driver that is over 18 if a family member or 21 if non-family. There are no restrictions on whom you can have as a passenger with your official license.

** Isn't "The Best Day" about her mother?
*** Yes, from Swift's POV.
**** No, "The Best Day" is about her father. Lyrics include: "I have an excellent father/His strength is making me stronger" and "Daddy's smart/And you're the prettiest lady..."

*** ''Or'' you could see it as an alternate ending in which, rather than going the sneaking-around-and-making-stupid-plans route, Romeo came to his senses and, as the boy in the song does, just asked Juliet's father for permission to marry her. After all, when Tybalt brought it to his attention that Romeo & co. had crashed the Capulet party, Old Capulet's reaction was, essentially, "Sure, I hate his parents, but I hear he's a good kid, so leave him alone." If Romeo had asked him for Juliet's hand, he very well may have said ''yes''. Perhaps this is Taylor's version of a Fix-It fic?

* "Love Story" is written as though Swift didn't know how the play ends... neither did Juliet. For all we know, they both die after the song ends. I think it works better that way.
