Seated at her piano, flowing gown draping the staircase behind her, Taylor Swift’s lyrics plead with her audience to journey back in time when love was blossoming and forever felt possible. Then, with equal emotion, she yanked the audience down a path of desperation as she tried to forget the pain inflicted on her heart when that love wilted. With pounding piano and the forceful shake of her hair, she poured out the pain of remembering every detail “all too well.”
The lyrics “Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it. I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it” rang out with such vulnerability that every audience member could no doubt retrace the cracks of their own once broken hearts.
Taylor Swift’s GRAMMY performance once again proved why the young singer has become a global superstar over the last eight years. “All Too Well” was a performance that fans will remember as once of Taylor Swift’s best.
