Taylor Swift's "Lover" Is a Romantic Ode to Joe Alwyn, and Swifties Are Sobbing Happy Tears
Taylor Swift's latest single "Lover" has fans incredibly emotional right now. Not only is the track reminiscent of her earlier country songs with the soft guitar melody and beautiful lyrics, but it appears to be a sweet love song to her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. With lyrics like "I've loved you three Summers now, honey, but I want 'em all," Swift sings about falling deeper in love with her partner and wanting to spend the rest of her life with them.
At one point, she even sparks engagement rumours with the bridge: "Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand? / With every guitar string scar on my hand / I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover / My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue / All's well that ends well to end up with you." While Swift and Alwyn have kept their romance out of the spotlight the past three years, the singer has given us a glimpse of their romance through her songs. So, it would be perfectly fitting for her to reveal a possible engagement through her music.
After writing so many sad songs about heartbreak throughout her career, it goes without saying that Swifties are crying tears of joy over her newfound happiness. Needless to say, we'll probably be hearing this song a lot at weddings in the near future. Keep scrolling to see how fans are reacting to Swift's sweet love song ahead.
