Taylor Swift Accused Of Stealing Lyrics

Taylor Swift has been accused of stealing song lyrics on one of the tracks off her new album, Red.

Matt Nathanson has accused the songstress of stealing the lyric: “… and I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to” from the song, ‘All Too Well’.

The words bear a striking similarity to Nathanson’s 2003 lyrics from his track, ‘I Saw’, in which he sang: “… and I’ll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to.”

Matt expressed his disgust via Twitter (now deleted) writing, “she’s definitely a fan … and now she’s a thief.”

Nathanson knows Taylor is a fan, because she’s been seen with his song words written on her arm at gigs in 2011 and 2012.

Fans of Nathanson are currently ripping Taylor a new one.
