"I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have.”

"Happy, Free, Confused, and Lonely at the same time."
'Starlight' is a song that I wrote, actually, after seeing a picture of Ethel and Bobby Kennedy when they were seventeen. I saw this picture about a year and a half ago and I didn't know anything about, like, what they were doing or what was going on in the picture, but I just thought 'they look like they're having the best night'. And so I wrote this song about what the night might've been like. And I ended up meeting Ethel and going and playing for and she just loved it. It was such a fun moment when she was just in love with the song and so happy about it. And it's just this adorable picture that, to me, just brought forth all these potentials for how that night could have been.
I’m twenty-two, so, that’s the time in life that people say to you: ‘Go, make mistakes! Live your life! Learn the hard way! Throw caution to the wind, be spontaneous!’. But if I do that, if I make a mistake, it’s international news.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you,
MISS TAYLOR ALISON SWIFT.
