Taylor Swift – Fifteen lyrics
You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It's the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you ain't seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody's way
It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
You know I haven't seen you around, before

(Chorus)
'Cause when you're fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen feeling like
There's nothing to figure out
But count to ten, take it in
This is life before you know
Who you're gonna be
Fifteen

You sit in a class next to a redheaded Abigail
And soon enough you're best friends
Laughing at the other girls
Who think they're so cool
We'll be out of here as soon as we can
And then you're on you're very first date
And he's got a car and you're feeling like flying
And you're mamma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one
And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends
When the night ends

(Chorus)
'Cause when you're fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
When you're fifteen and your first kiss
Makes you head spin 'round but
In your life you'll do things greater
Than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn't know it at fifteen

When all you wanted

Was to be wanted
Wish you could go back
And tell yourself what you know now

Back then I swore I
was gonna
Marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind
And we both cried

(Chorus)
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall
I've found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you're supposed to be
I didn't know who I was supposed to be
At fifteen

la la la la la...la la la la la...la la la la la

Your very first day
Take
a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

    Well.
    In most cases, I would say that Taylor was completely right in her lyrics, but I'm 17 (almost 18), and my fiance and I have been together since the second day of my freshman year. I'm now a senior, my fiance graduated last year, and we've never been happier. We're getting married this year after I graduate. Anyway, Taylor was being very sweet in trying to let younger girls about their first loves. =)

    This is a great song. It says so much to girls especially at my age. Life isn't all about romance and dating and boys. There's so much more to life and we never really got to realize them. We're always so caught up in our fantasies and we're not even sure if that's what we really want. At a young age, we don't really know what love is actually. Sure we've read it and seen it but, we don't really know how it feels and just because we feel something different and new doesn't mean that's it.

    I love this song! It completely relates to what happened to me when I was fifteen when I first heard this song I completely freaked! I thought oh my god she knows exactly what happened in my 10th grade year! I'm a senior now and I'm 17. And this song makes me look back on those days and laugh and smile. I love Taylor Swift for that very reason. She does write from the heart and all of her songs have meaning. They arent just floating around out there so she can make money. She is amazing and has inspired me to write poems.

    I love this song and it means so much to me at this point in my life since I'm about to start my first year of high school. The lyrics means that when you're 15 and you're starting to date boys and get into the drama of high school, you have to realize that none of that stuff will matter once you go out into the world and begin college or your career. You will do greater things in life once you start to grow up. Just don't get too caught up in those high school boys or whatever it is that distracts you from achieving your important goals.

    This song is so pretty. But its trying to tell you to not plan out your whole life before you have to, since when your so young, you don't know what you want yet. Even if you think you are in love with someone, someone's heart is gonna break. Especially grlzz. Don't you know that guys mature a lot slower than grlz? They wont b able to understand us. If someone let you go for another girl, get over him. There are so many better guys out there that you deserve. =D

    This song is telling younger girls about how life can seem to be all about love and dating that senior football star, and how there could be hertbreak at the end and how your first kiss should be magical, but life can be more then that. It can be about your dreams and finding out who you are and what you want to be in the world. I love this song. Amazing!

    The song was 4 me before at 14. Not so long ago. The famous senior guy who said "You know I havent seen u around before" Then "We could be more than friends" Later graduated, not even a text and a couple of weeks ago saw him holdin hands with a girl and he came to say Hi as if nothing ever happened but What the Hell?! Hope she enjoys the best I Never had.

    "Cause when you're fifteen and someone tells you they love you, you gotta believe them."
    This one line says everything, I'm close to 15 years old now. One of my really close friends and I always tell each other we love them (she's a girl, and no, we are not dating) and even though we're not together, we care about each other so much, and our love for each other is well known between us.

    I really love this song! I can say that I will not loose my love 4 this 4 a life time, my younger brother, Eguy, who was just about six years of age sang this song in their school's christmas party last 2010 gaining standing ovation from the crowd. It is was so memorable because it's his 1st time to sing on stage wanting to make people realize the message of the song. Thank you, Taylor, you are really an inspiration 4 us. From then on that Christmas Program, my cutie brother has been a famestar in our happy place! We hope you'll recognize us, Taylor. I highly wish we'd get a chance to buy a video recorder so we can have a cover 4 your songs. More power A lot 2 you, idol!

    I love this song. I dunno how to say but somehow I feel I like I am a loser. I got lot of friends at school. N you can say that I am in the popular group, I mean it always happen that someone noe me but I don't even noe them, n it become very embarrasing to introduce yourself to someone who already noe you. But somehow I still feel that I am left outside from the major group in school.

    Well this would relate to 15 year old girl but I am a 12 year old and I have made the biggest mistake ever if you guys want to know story keep reading well this is it: the day he asked me I was like finally you ask I would tell him all my secretes I had my 1st kiss with him to I really loved him 2 months later he dumped me but while we were dating his now best friend liked me he would always be there for me since the day me and him went out with him I mean my ex-boyfriend best friend hes cute I would give him a chance but I'm not cause that would be wrong. Any thing to say pleazzz post them ill read it promise!

    For me it means that as you grow up you find out that you couldve changed something in the past. It couldve been way eisier for you. And to think how foolish your dreams were and how you thought that by dating the most popular guy in the school you would be the best and thinking now that id rather be single and working in a big city than being the date of the quarterback.

    Look, I'm only in fourth grade and I've had a crush on this guy ever since I first saw him at the beginning of the year. I thought that we were gonna get married someday and that we said I love you to each other but I know that its never gonna happen. He liked another girl and then she didn't like him and he didn't like her and then he liked me and now he likes her again! I will never forget it because it is my friend that likes him. I can't ever stop thinking about him.
