Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about this is me trying. By Songfacts®.

This song finds Taylor Swift reflecting on growing up in the media glare. Having found fame at an early age (she released her first album at 16), Taylor's failures and setbacks have all been in the public eye. Here she admits to some regrets over past breakups. It's hard to be anywhere these days when all I want is you A tendency to overreact to incidents, self-sabotage and assuming the worst. They told me all of my cages were mental And moments where she's lashed out at others. And my words shoot to kill when I'm mad However, Taylor is aware of her faults and is doing the best she can. I just wanted you to know that this is me trying

The song is similar in theme to the Lover track "Afterglow" where Swift takes the blame for a fight with her lover and asks him to forgive her for her outburst.

While most of the tracks on Folklore are third-person narratives, this is the closest cousin to Swift's 2017 album Reputation. That record is centered around her anger at the way the media publicizes her personal life and disputes.
