One thing that I have always loved about Swift's albums is how she masterfully crafts each and every one with a specific theme in mind. While Fearless is all about doing things in spite of your fears and Red is about her most intense emotions, all the songs on Speak Now are what Swift wishes she had said in the moment but didn't have the courage to. "There is a time for silence. There is a time waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you'll know it," she writes in the prologue letter. (I can't tell you how much that quote helped me with feelings of insecurity in high school.) As we know, Swift has always had a way with words, so each and every song reads like a private letter to a specific person or an entry in her personal diary about a specific moment in her life. The album shows Swift being completely vulnerable and open, and as a result, that much more relatable to her fans.
