Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Reading, Pennsylvania. This song starts off with the image of the tree swing in the woods during her childhood. Please picture me in the trees I hit my peak at seven Feet in the swing over the creek I was too scared to jump in Swift reflects during the rest of the track on her memories of a childhood friend who was unhappy at home. She recalls innocently believing that by plotting an escape to her Christmas tree farm, her traumatized friend's problems would be resolved. And I think you should come live with me And we can be pirates Then you won't have to cry
The song's storyline of two childhood friends echoes Swift's Lover track "It's Nice to Have a Friend," where the two pals grow up together and eventually marry.
Taylor Swift wrote the song with Folklore co-producer Aaron Dessner. The National multi-instrumentalist co-wrote 11 of the tracks with Swift and called on bandmate Bryan Devendorf for this song's drum programming.
