"Lover" is a romantic ballad where Taylor Swift talks about her British actor boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Can I go where you go? Can we always be this close forever and ever? And ah, take me out, and take me home forever and ever You're my, my, my, my lover Swift's romantic relationships have always been at the center of her music, and here she declares her joy at finding long-lasting love. This love lasted until early 2023, when the couple split.
Taylor Swift started dating Joe Alwyn in early 2017, and several songs on her Reputation album were about her British beau, including "Call It What You Want," "Dancing With Our Hands Tied" and "Gorgeous."
Swift is the only credited songwriter on this one. She co-produced the waltzy track with frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff. "We wanted to make music that could've been played on a wedding reception stage in 1970," Swift said.
