Riff: Taylor Swift – “Begin Again”

Oct 22, 2012

Took a deep breath in the mirror/ He didn’t like it when I wore high heels

from Begin Again lyrics by Taylor Swift

One of the few Red numbers likely to appease fans of her early country sound, Swift displays an engaging vulnerability as she recalls how she was stifled by a previous relationship, only to have her faith in love restored thanks to a first date that could have been scripted from a rom-com.
