LOS ANGELES: Singer Taylor Swift says most of her early songwriting was based on a contrived understanding of love, rather than personal experience.

"These were all projections of what I thought they might be like. They were based on movies and books and songs and literature that tell us that a relationship is the most magical thing that can ever happen to you," Swift said.

"And then once I fell in love, or thought I was in love, and then experienced disappointment or it just not working out a few times, I realised there's this idea of happily ever after which in real life doesn't happen.

"There's no riding off into the sunset, because the camera always keeps rolling in real life. It's magical if you ask anyone who has ever fallen in love - it's the greatest. 

“Now I have more of a grasp on the fact that when you're in a state of infatuation and you think everything that person does is perfect, it then - if you're lucky - morphs into a real relationship when you see that that person is not in fact perfect, but you still want to see them every day," the 25-year-old singer added.

The “Blank space” hitmaker also spoke about her experiences of heartbreak, saying it causes time to move at "a completely different pace", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"You know how it is when you're going through heartbreak. A heartbroken person is unlike any other person. Their time moves at a completely different pace than ours,” Swift told ELLE magazine.

"It's this mental, physical, emotional ache and feeling so conflicted. Nothing distracts you from it. Then time passes, and the more you live your life and create new habits, you get used to not having a text message every morning saying, 'Hello, beautiful. Good morning'," she added.
