Two New Songs Have Hit The Web From Taylor Swift’s Highly Anticipated Album ‘Speak Now.’ We Think She Sounds Amazing, Do You Agree?

Taylor Swift, 20, is known for her beautiful vocals and truthful lyrics that tell her stories of young love and heartbreak. After listening to the latest songs that have been leaked from her upcoming album, Speak Now, we know the country crooner will not disappoint!

“The Story of Us,” sounds very much like her old songs. The song has a catchy beat and tells the story of a girl who still has feelings for an old flame, but her pride gets the best of her.

“Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room and we’re not speaking and I’m dying to know — is it killing you, like its killing me?” she sings.

Taylor told MTV News that she wrote this song after running into an old beau — Taylor Lautner — at an awards show and he pretended that she didn’t exist!

“Afterward, I just felt so empty, like we were both fighting this silent war of pretending we didn’t care that the other was there. And I went home, and I wrote this song about it. And at that point, I had this gut feeling, and I knew the album was finished,” she said.

The other leaked song, “Enchanted,” is a ballad unlike anything we’ve ever heard from Taylor! Her sound is all grown-up and it’s a refreshing change from her old high school-esque love lyrics.

“This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew I was enchanted to meet you,” she sings.

Sounds like Taylor is maturing from her days of text-message, Jonas brother break-ups into more substantial adult relationships! Listen and tell us what you think about Taylor Swift’s newest songs!
