"State of Grace"
Since this album was written during the time that Swift got Meredith, I'd like to think that she didn't know her cat was about to come into her life, but it was fate. And now life will never be the same.
Lyrics: "These are the hands of fate / You're my Achilles heel / This is the golden age of something good and right and real / And I never saw you coming / And I'll never be the same."
"I Know Places"
"The Last Time"
Meredith probably doesn't want to hang out and cuddle with Swift all the time, but I'm sure she apologizes. Can you imagine Mer just sitting at the door, her big eyes asking for forgiveness?
"All You Had to Do Was Stay"
Meredith is known to be moody (as seen in the video above), so this one could be about her not wanting to be with Swift. Apparently "The Last Time" didn't stick, because clearly Swift forgives her cats easily.
"I Almost Do"
This track off of Red could be about Swift imagining Meredith at home (remember, at this time, she didn't have Olivia yet) waiting for her to return. She's wondering when her mom will be home. Swift wants to FaceTime her or just go home, but she can't.
Lyrics: “I bet this time of night you're still up / I bet you're tired from a long hard week / I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window looking out at the city / And I bet sometimes you wonder about me / And I just wanna tell you / It takes everything in me not to call you / And I wish I could run to you / And I hope you know that every time I don't / I almost do."
C'mon. This girl loves her cats. Nothing wrong with writing a song about it. Plus, since this doesn't have any super-intense Harry Styles references, I'm voting it's about Mer and Olivia.
Lyrics: “This love is good, this love is bad / This love is alive back from the dead / These hands had to let it go free / And this love came back to me / This love left a permanent mark / This love is glowing in the dark.”
No rhyme or reason for this one, except I bet Swift dances with her cats every night.
Lyrics: “Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through / But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you / Tonight I’m gonna dance like you were in this room / But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.”
