Taylor Swift is a single lady once again.

A source confirmed to Billboard yesterday that Swift and Calvin Harris have indeed ended their 15-month relationship. While breakups suck, no matter who you are, Swift has a distinct advantage over other people mourning the end of a relationship: She's got her own inspirational music to blast around the house.

Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Break Up

Below, we rounded up eight of her best "I'm better off alone" lyrical kiss-offs, as well as lines that find her pining for something new and better. Take it away, Taylor. 

1. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
"I used to think that we were forever ever/ And I used to say, 'Never say never...'/ Uggg... so he calls me up and he's like, 'I still love you,'/ And I'm like... 'I just... /I mean this is exhausting, you know, like,/ We are never getting back together. Like, ever'"

2. "Picture to Burn"
"So watch me strike a match/ On all my wasted time/ As far as I'm concerned you're/ Just another picture to burn"

3. "New Romantics"
"Baby, we’re the new romantics / Come on, come along with me / Heartbreak is the national anthem / We sing it proudly. We are too busy dancing / So get knocked off our feet / Baby, we’re the new romantics / The best people in life are free."


4. "22"
"It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters/ And make fun of our exes, uh uh uh uh/ It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight/ To fall in love with strangers uh uh uh uh"

4. "Shake It Off"
"But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving/ It's like I got this music in my body and it's gonna be alright"

5. "You're Not Sorry"
"But you don't have to call anymore/ I won't pick up the phone/ This is the last straw/ Don't wanna hurt anymore/ And you can tell me that you're sorry/ But I don't believe you/ baby Like I did before/ You're not sorry, no no, oh"

6. "Change"
"Because these things will change/ Can you feel it now?/ These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down/ It's a revolution, the time will come/ For us to finally win/ And we'll sing hallelujah, we'll sing hallelujah"

7. "Clean"
"And that morning, gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean"

8. "Begin Again"
"I've been spending the last eight months/ Thinking all love ever does/ is break and burn and end/ But on a Wednesday in a cafe/ I watched it begin again"
