22 Lyrics

It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes, ah ah, ah ah.
It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers, ah ah, ah ah.

Yeah,
We're happy free confused and...

    i heard her say this on video, she felt like 22 was her favorite age, doing so many fun things with her freinds, being slightly crazy in the process. so i think it is about everything that she did that was fun when she was 22.:)

    this song is dedicated to her best friends. here's a link for more details: http://taylorswiftsongs2.blogspot.ca/2012/10/22.html
    basically 22 is another year just like 15, another vulnerable where you're a little brave than you were back at the age of 15.

    It’s about being young, and abandoning society’s expectations of the things you can do when you’re young and naive because you know how to have fun no matter the pressure that’s piled onto you. It’s about being carefree when there’s so much 2 care about. It’s an anthem of being young and powerful and defying everybodys expectations because you want to have fun and live your life to the fullest. it’s about driving out to the club to spend a night, to have a midnight breakfast and call all your friends on a whim. 22 life sounds rly ideal, and that’s what happens when u treat yourself and be happy no matter what. This has been a lot of

    I was recording the song is to the song it’s very important than ever I’ve been to the most recording studio before I’ve been making this with friends, and also I’ve been into the album I have been it’s been more than recording to that album. If the album is been to the last years to the writing room. I’ve been to the music room I’ve been to recording this song and give it up into my music. I’ve been friends.

    '22' is all about trying to 'forget about the deadlines' and embraces only the most sugary hooks available. Underneath the heel-clicking positivity and shiny production sits the line 'We're happy, free, confused and lonely in the best way', a rather stunning meditation on being in your early 20s that's flicked off like a piece of pre-chorus lint. Even when she's having fun, Swift is succinctly communicating conflicting emotion."

    I believe being 22 is very special to have a party, then someone needs to love in same way.

    it's about letting go and celebrating life like we ain't getting older and we will be young as long as we want to (it's all about determination)

    This song is about taking risks and being free to have fun. "You look like bad news/ I've gotta have you" suggests that some of her choices are just about living in the moment. The idea of being 22 is mostly about being at an age where it is okay to do what you like. "Everything will be alright if we just keeo dancing like we're twenty-two"

    P.s. I'm only fifteen so I don't know for sure what it feels like

    I think she must grow up because she write songs like a child and her behaviors like 13 years old teenage girls. She said that as if all girls only talk about their ex boyfriends. I don't talk about my bf when my friends come my home. We do really enjoyable activities. Girls not think boy always we are not slave of boys but I think Taylor admire all boy in the world.

    22 is about when you are older and you go out on the dancefloor feeling like you are 22
    You look like bad news, I gotta have you is saying should I have my last drink or shot
