Taylor Swift Has Officially Revealed that The Lyrics to ‘Lavender Haze’ Refer to A Boy

In her new song “Lavender Haze,” which can be found on her album “Midnights,” Taylor Swift discusses her relationship with Joe Alwyn.

Before the album’s release, Swift teased that the album’s lead single will be about dating in the spotlight. Late in 2016, Alwyn and Swift began dating.

Since we now reside in the age of social media, she continued, “I think a lot of individuals, not just like ‘public personalities,'” have to deal with this. And if word gets out that you’re head over heels for someone, everyone will have an opinion.

For the past six years of her relationship, she and her partner have “had to dodge crazy stories, tabloid stuff — and we just ignore it.” This song is about looking the other way in order to safeguard what’s important.

Now that “Lavender Haze” has been released alongside the rest of the album and seven additional tracks, we can examine its significance in greater detail. Find out what the song’s lyrics reveal about Swift, Alwyn, and her feelings toward a possible engagement.

Swift declares in the song that the ‘love light’ is where she wants to be.
On Instagram, Swift revealed the origin of the song’s title: “Lavender haze signifies the all-encompassing love glow.”

According to her, “It turns out that it’s a frequent word used in the ’50s, where people would just describe being in love,” and she first heard it on an episode of “Mad Men.”

The song represents an internal struggle between withdrawing from the world and succumbing to its influence (and their paparazzi photos).

She wished to “remain in that purple haze” forever, saying, “I simply want to stay.” On “Lavender Haze,” Swift supposedly addresses the rumors of their impending engagement.

Given that the song’s subject is an outsider’s opinion on a couple’s status, it stands to reason that Swift would answer the obvious questions in the song’s chorus. Furthermore, a marriage proposal is what most individuals are hoping for.

Will Swift and Alwyn tie the knot? She remains silent, merely remarking that the very question is “dizzying.”

She laments, “The only kinda female they see / Is a one-night or a wife / I find it dizzying” when asked if she will be her groom’s bride.

She also sings, “The 1950s s—- they want from me,” which may be a rebuke to the stereotypical gender norms of the era. Be aware that the phrase “in the ’50s” is used as the song’s title.

To the Wall Street Journal in 2020, Alwyn briefly discussed the engagement rumors that had been circulating even though he indicated he preferred talking about work.

I’d have a lot of British pounds if I had a pound for every time someone informed me they were engaged. The truth is, whether the answer is yes or no, I still wouldn’t say either way,” Alwyn explained.

Public dating is another topic explored in the song.

Swift continues the topic by singing about her experience dating Alwyn when she was being “scrutinized.”

In 2016, she and Alwyn started going out. Swift’s spat with Kim Kardashian and Ye was a major story at the beginning of that year, and she had also been linked to Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris (the artist formerly known as Kanye West).

She remarked, “All this s—- is new to me; I’ve never been under scrutiny before.”

Swift claims that Alwyn pays little attention to rumors about her relationships in the past.

Her lyrics go something like, “They’re bringing up my history / But you weren’t even listening.”

Read the lyrics to ‘Lavender Haze’

Meet me at midnight

 

Staring at the ceiling with you

Oh, you don’t ever say too much

And you don’t really read into

My melancholia

 

I’ve been under scrutiny (Yeah, oh, yeah)

You handle it beautifully (Yeah, oh, yeah)

All this shit is new to me (Yeah, oh, yeah)

 

I feel

A lavender haze creeping up on me

So real

I’m damned if I do give a damn what people say

No deal

The 1950s s–t they want for me

 

I just wanna stay in the lavender haze

 

All they keep asking me (All they keep asking me)

Is if I’m gonna be your bride

The only kind of girl they see (The only kind of girl they see)

Is a one night or a wife

 

I find it dizzying (Yeah, oh, yeah)
