I Almost Do

Album: Red (2012)
Charted: 65
  • This acoustic song finds Swift reaching for the phone to reconnect with a former boyfriend before deciding she dare not "risk another goodbye." When The Daily Beast asked Swift whether her songs are autobiographical, she replied: "Sometimes, I write about my own life. And sometimes, I write about situations I see my friends going through. Sometimes, I write about a scene I saw in a movie. I take inspiration from all different places. It's hard to say what different topics inspire me the most. I think people inspire me the most. If I meet a person who is incredibly complex and all of a sudden, I start thinking in rhymes, that person could be a muse."
