i woke up from a really long nap with “try and catch me now” in my head. it’s like my unconscious has just given up. i think it’s all of the resonances with "you lost me" and rearview mirrors and didn’t i just post something that had a lot to do with being let down? also everyone wants to talk about how they should’ve known. i have given a very impassioned speech about how the album that “white horse” is on is way more sophisticated than her next album, which i love but also sounds like it was made for the 8-year-olds that really are her audience (besides me); i think this is the most sophisticated song on it. i’ve never seen this video; i think when it came out i was busy being an adult. it’s kind of bad, but it’s kind of great. taylor crying after she hangs up the phone?! her hair looks really good. i just caught the line about being a dreamer; the accumulation of meaning is always satisfying. i love the dismissiveness of “that was a small town” and this song.
