    We were both young when I first saw you.
    I close my eyes and the flashback starts-
    I'm standing there, on a balcony in summer air.
    See the lights; see the party, the ball gowns.
    See you make your way through the crowd-
    And say hello, little did I know...

    In Swift's words: Swift has said things that imply that this was written about the same person "White Horse" was written about.[citation needed]

    "Love Story" was first released as the debut single off Swift's second album, Fearless, in 2008. In an article for Billboard, Swift described "Love Story" as "a love that you've got to hide because for whatever reason it wouldn't go over well. I spun it in the direction of Romeo and Juliet; our parents are fighting. I relate to it more as a love that you cannot really elaborate on — a love that maybe society wouldn't accept or maybe your friends wouldn't accept." The song is a mid-tempo, backed by banjo and guitar. In the lyrics, the narrator alludes to Romeo and Juliet and The Scarlet Letterto describe a lover whom her father will not let her see. In the end, however, the father reconciles and the lover proposes to the female narrator. The proposal is accompanied by a modulation in key up a tone, from D to E. Swift has repeatedly mentioned in interviews that the song was written around the lyrics, "This love is difficult, but it's real." The Pop Mix replaces the Country-style instr...

    The song received a mostly positive response from critics. Jim Malec of The 9513 gave "Love Story" a thumbs-up rating. Although he said that the song had a "wonderful, idealized ending" and that it seemed to comprise too much of a plot line for a four-minute song, he nonetheless made note of the lyrics, saying, "the complications and difficulties surrounding her affair are just as grave as Juliet's... the fact that Swift, arguably the genre's biggest star at the moment, has done so here is a breath of fresh air, even if the song does otherwise follow a disappointingly unoriginal pattern." He added, "None of these criticisms, however, will have a major impact on the song’s effectiveness, or on its ability to strike a resonant chord with its intended audience... what's more, 'Love Story' shows an artist willing to take chances by venturing from the format’s standard song structure, and to let her personality shine through–even if the lyric generally follows a well-worn path."

    The music video premiered on Country Music Television on September 12, 2008. The video begins with Swift seeing a guy sitting under a tree in the present day, played by Justin Gaston. Then, there are some video scenes alternating flashbacks and present scenes, which appear to be an allusion to Pride and Prejudice. Swift, dressed in a ball gown, is seen singing outside a castle while she is waiting for her version of Mr. Darcy. She is singing and some scenes alternate with the past, where she is dancing during a galawith a gentleman. The "love story" ends with the gentleman's arrival and the video comes back to the present. The boy is seen getting up and they approach each other. The video won CMA Award for Music Video of the Year on November 11, 2009. The present-day scenes were filmed at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee, while the performance shots were shot at Castle Gwynn, just outside of Murfeesboro, Tennessee.

    Hidden message: Someday I'll find this. Taylor wrote this song in a very short amount of time after her parents had told her that she couldn't be with the person she wanted to be with, around 27 minutes. She presumably wrote this in a notebook, and it ended up on the album.
