I know I promised I wouldn’t talk about Taylor Swift on here for a little while…but bare with me on this one. Right now, each Taylor Swift Inspired Cake has it’s own individual post – but I thought it might be nice to see the entire 1989 Series in one place. So here it is – all the cakes and the lyrics they were inspired by.
1. WELCOME TO NEW YORK
Everybody here wanted something more
Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before
And it said
Welcome to New York
2. BLANK SPACE
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
But I’ve got a blank space, baby
And I’ll write your name
You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go out of style
We never go out of style
4. OUT OF THE WOODS
The rest of the world was black and white
But we were in screaming color
And I remember thinking…
Are we out of the woods yet?
5. OUT OF THE WOODS
To move the furniture so we could dance,
Baby, like we stood a chance
Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying
And I remember thinkin’
Are we out of the woods?
6. BAD BLOOD
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Did you think we’d be fine? Still got scars on my back from your knife
So don’t think it’s in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last.
7. I KNOW PLACES
Cause they got the cages, they got the boxes
They are the hunters, we are the foxes
And we run
Rain came pouring down when I was drowning
That’s when I could finally breathe
And by morning gone was any trace of you,
I think I am finally clean
So there you go. That wasn’t so bad, right? But before I completely sign off on my T Swift talk, there is one more thing….below is a video of my mom dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off”. I know this seems a little random, but my mom has had a rough couple of weeks . She has been in pain, has had difficulty breathing, and most days, is too tired to even get out of bed.
I have found that the hardest part about cancer is the unknown. My mom may never have a good day again, and she may also start responding to the new medicine, and have a lot of good days ahead of her. There is no way to tell. All you can do is take it one day at a time, and remember, that no matter how bad it gets, no one can take away the good days you did share together. They will always be there. For me, this was a good day. And no matter how many good days or bad days the future holds for my mom, I will always know that she can “Shake it Off” like a pro.
And how adorable is it that she says “rear end”? Who even says that anymore? Ok, I am done. For real this time. Bye.
