Taylor Swift’s 21 Best Songs About Falling In Love
We’ve finally arrived at Taylor’s most recent triumph, Lover. This is the first Swiftian album born of a loving, healthy relationship instead of a tumultuous facsimile of the real thing, and it shows. The album’s titular single, a ’50s-adjacent waltz through a love that’s been lived in, is the first step towards a lifelong commitment. Taylor has moved in with her beau and is picturing marriage in a more grounded way than any of her many, many other references to that happily ever after during her decade-plus career, and it describes falling in love a little more every day. Its depth comes from the haunting feeling Taylor, as a narrator, has been hurt before and wants to freeze this moment before it changes into something not necessarily worse, but different.
