Electric City

"I dreamed about moving to New York, I obsessed over moving to New York and then I did it. And  the inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I've ever experienced in my life. It's like an electric city."
Taylor Swift, YouTube
