    An interesting discussion! Invisible is definitely similar to Teardrops on my guitar and You belong with me but it’s funny because it’s older and none of them are about the same guy. She said in an article once (in the Atlantic city press or something I think) that she wrote Invisible while on vacation in New Jersey while she still lived in PA about a boy whose family (who I believe was friends with hers) was staying in the house next door to their summer home. She had a crush on him but felt invisible because he always liked and was dating other girls. Based on the fact that she started writing songs at 12 (she wrote Smokey black nights that summer) and moved to TN at 14 (they sold their summer home in February 2005 when she was 15 but they went to Tahiti in 2004 where she wrote Beautiful eyes so I don’t think they went there that summer narrowing down the time period she could’ve written it in to two years, 2002 or 2003 when she was 12 and 13) and the fact that she co-wrote the song with Robert Ellis Orral who she only wrote with I believe when she was 13 and 14 I’d say she was probably 13 when she wrote it whereas she was 14 almost 15 when she wrote Teardrops on my guitar (which we all know was about her 9th grade crush Drew) and You belong with me at probably 17 about a band member who she didn’t actually have a crush on (maybe that’s why it doesn’t sound sad) so none of them are inspired by the same person (and I think it’s worth mentioning that I’d lie, which was written in 2006, isn’t inspired by the same guy as any of those songs either), although they’re similar in theme. I guess that situation always sounds the same no matter when it happens or who it’s about! And about why it’s a deluxe edition song (which it was released on in 2007 before the 2008 re-release), well I think it was so old at that point that it would be too old to put on Fearless or Fearless platinum and I think she didn’t put it on the original version of Taylor Swift also because it was kind of old and she always likes her newer songs better. She actually usually uses older songs instead of newer ones for deluxe editions anyway because it’s a chance for her to release songs that she liked but that didn’t make it onto the original album. Half of the songs on the Fearless platinum edition were actually written before Taylor Swift came out. I think she might re-record them though (because she often does sound younger in the demos) because they’re so old and maybe wouldn’t otherwise fit in musically or vocally with the main album even if it’s thematically mature enough in the lyrics. Anyway, I know what you mean about the music video Adam. Like the girls, I only picture scenes from her other music videos too (I actually made a similar music video to the one Steve mentioned and I thought he was talking about mine because it has the same thumbnail and I actually made a Harry Potter one too!) but I could picture what you’re talking about where she looks like a ghost and is in black and white at school with everything going on around her and I picture him looking like a ghost when he’s around the girl he likes because that’s how I interpreted the song, that they’re both invisible as individuals but I could see it as their relationship being invisible too. I think she meant it in every way possible. And I agree with you Adam, I think everyone (in America anyway) knows who Casper is! lol :) -Alyssa
