Taylor Swift’s evermore was packed with so many cozy and crushing lyrics that we just can’t stop thinking about.
Taylor Swift’s ninth studio album, evermore, stands as a perfect partner to folklore, the fantastically folky album she released only a few months prior. Of course, that means that it is also filled with exquisitely woven tales that feel like the most classic and poetic love stories you’ve ever read.
Evermore is musically ambitious and experimental in a way that far surpasses Taylor Swift’s previous works, with complex guitar and piano riffs and sound combinations that make even the recent folklore sound simple. However, at the end of the day, it’s Swift’s lyrics and stories that her fans will always hold most dear.
The album includes songs about divorce, infidelity, rejected proposals, and even murder, and it doesn’t hesitate to dive head first into the depths of these heavy subjects. Swift wields her pen as adeptly ever, infusing these topics with their inherent sense of catharsis and catastrophe in the way that only she can.
While every track on Taylor Swift’s evermore feels like its own beautifully crafted novel, here are some of the best lyrics that stood out to us on the album.
