The track is one of the most personal on the album. Speaking to the Nashville Songwriters Association, Swift said, “I think my favorite line is ‘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.'” This comes from the bridge, which is inspired by wedding vows.
Swift said the line is both literal and metaphorical. “I’ve written a lot of breakup songs…so you would hope that if somebody’s going to choose you, they’re going to choose you along with all the things that have hurt you in the past and all the damage,” she said. “And if you’re going to choose someone, you’re going to do the same for them.”
What the verses reveal about her life with Joe Alwyn
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are seen at Zuma restaurant on October 6, 2019 in New York City.
“I just wanted to paint a picture of two people who are learning to live together for the first time realizing you can make your own traditions,” Swift continued of the song’s verses, in which she gives examples of everyday moments. “Because this is your life and your family that you’re choosing.”
“I think that’s a really beautiful thing that happens when two people decide to spend their time together,” Swift added. She called the song, which fans believe to be about Alwyn, “sort of a celebration of taking that very adult step of living with someone and deciding this is the path forward for you, walking alongside someone else.”
