This is one of two bonus tracks made available on the physical deluxe edition of the Evermore album. Republic released the pair of songs to streaming services on January 7, 2021.
The song has a heartbreaking theme of being unable to move on from a past love interest. Did you hear about the girl who lives in delusion? Breakups happen every day, you don't have to lose it She's still twenty-three inside her fantasy And you're sitting in front of me Swift has remained stuck in the same place since a breakup when she was 23. I'm sure that you got a wife out there Kids and Christmas, but I'm unaware 'Cause I'm right where I cause no harm The songstress believes her love interest has likely moved and now is happily married with children. And it's been so long But if you ever think you got it wrong Though it's been a long time since their breakup, Swift still dreams of being reunited with her ex.
Taylor Swift was dating Harry Styles on her 23rd birthday, but split about a month later and didn't have any other known boyfriends for the next couple of years. However, the singer moved on from that relationship and started a long term romance with Joe Alwyn. Swift has said that much of the Evermore album is rooted in first-person fictional lyrics, so it's clear this song comes from her imagination.
