Taylor Swift’s loveliest ‘Lover’ lyrics

Taylor Swift’s Lover album is finally here, and we can’t stop singing along to these lovely lyrics from this amazing album.

When Taylor Swift says she’s going to write a “love letter to love itself,” she means it. Lover is exactly the “celebration of love, in all its complexity, coziness, and chaos,” that she promised it would be, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

From the sugary sweet sounds of “Lover” and “Daylight” to the biting bridges of “Cruel Summer” and “Death by a Thousand Cuts,” the lyrics of the Lover album expertly explore every corner of love, its consequences, and of course, its rewards.

Lover is the longest of any of Taylor Swift’s initial releases, and it’s also one of the deepest. Each track has stand out lines and ones that creep up on you after a second or third listen. We’ve done our best to compile the best of both types, in this list.
