Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ Album Lyrics Decoded
It's one of our favorite things to do when Taylor Swift drops an album. Yeah, we LOVE to decode Taylor's lyrics, right? Who is she singing about on each track? Which ex-lovers? What is she saying about her current boyfriend (Joe Alwyn)?
Well, here are just some of our early insights on the tracks:
"I Forgot That You Existed" -
It's a song about a past love who did her wrong, but she's clearly moved on.
"And I couldn't get away from ya
In my feelings more than Drake, so yeah," she sings.
Then it moves on to say "I forgot that you existed. It isn't love, it isn't hate, it's just indifference."
Most fans are guessing this one may be about Calvin Harris since the drama between the two was pretty "public-facing," according to Vulture. As you can tell below, the lyrics seem to reference a VERY public beef.
"Paper Rings" -
This track has us thinking about engagement rumors again. Maybe we shouldn't expect a big ring or showy wedding from Taylor and her beau, Joe Alwyn.
"I like shiny things, but I'd marry you with paper rings," Taylor sings on the track and says, "darling, you're the one I want."
Elle.com has more analysis of the lyrics connecting to her nearly three-year relationship with Joe Alwyn. No matter what it's just a super sweet track.
"Soon You'll Get Better" (featuring the Dixie Chicks) -
This may be the most emotional track on the release. It's definitely referencing her mom's battle with cancer. Taylor announced that her mom, Andrea Swift's, cancer returned in March.
This song is a super emotional listen for any fan. We're rooting for you, Andrea!
