Do not think painful means it was hard for me to get through. That is not the case at all. There are two reasons I say it was a lovely and painful read for me.
First, It was painful for me because …

Taylor Swift's "Safe And Sound" Music Video Premiere

Earlier today, MTV sat down and chatted with singer Taylor Swift, who talked about her love of The Hunger Games, and what it was like to write two songs on the soundtrack.  She also premiered the music video for her lead single (featuring The Civil Wars) from the film, “Safe and Sound” (I added some stills from the video below, since I think they’re quite pretty)!
You can watch all 11 of the MTV First videos HERE!
