Taylor Swift Lyrics for All Your High School Graduation Instagram Captions

Taylor Swift is a master lyricist. Despite the pop star living a life few of us could even imagine, she's able to write songs that are somehow wildly relatable. Yeah, we never broke up with John Mayer or Joe Jonas, but we've nursed our own heartaches—and the emotions are all the same.

Taylor also knows what it's like to close a chapter, be it moving from her reputation era into the lighter Lover age, or even severing ties with her original record company, Big Machine, in order to own her future material.

That's why Taylor is the perfect singer to look to when you need an Instagram caption for that moment in your life that's all about moving into the future and saying a bittersweet goodbye to your past: high school graduation. Below are some great Instagram caption options, straight from Tay herself.
