Yes, Even Taylor Swift’s “Delicate” is a Tribute to Her New Boyfriend

By  | 

Something tells us Taylor Swift really likes this guy, Joe Alwyn. We were kinda under that impression already, considering they’ve been dating, under the radar, for a year or so, but, like… the 27-year-old’s latest boo is taking over her entire Reputation album!

It makes sense — after all, Harry Styles was the inspiration for basically all of 1989, and Haylor dated for a MONTH — but, for some reason, we were still surprised to hear all of these lovey-dovey songs with minimal heartbreaking tunes in between, you know? Guess the Old Taylor really is dead, huh? In her place, though, is a Taylor that seems… happy and in love — and we’re all for that!

Get the lyrics for Track 5, “Delicate,” here:



This is for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
He must like me for me

We can’t make any promises now
Can we, babe?
But you can make me drink

Dive bar on the East Side
Where you at?
Phone lights up my nightstand in the black
Come here, you can meet me in the back



Dark jeans and your Nikes
Look at you
Oh, damn, if I’ve seen that color blue
Just think of the fun things we could do
’cause I like you

This is for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
He must like me for me

Yeah, I want you



We can’t make any promises now
Can we, babe?
But you can make me drink

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it chill that you’re in my head?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it too soon to do this yet?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

Isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it?
Isn’t it?

Isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it?
Isn’t it delicate?

Third floor, on the West Side
Me and you
Handsome, mansion with a view?
Do the girls back home touch you like I do?

Long night with your hands up in my hair
Echoes of your footsteps on the stairs
Stay here, honey, I don’t want to share
’cause I like you

This is for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
He must like me for me

Yeah, I want you

We can’t make any promises now
Can we, babe?
But you can make me drink

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it chill that you’re in my head?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it too soon to do this yet?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

Isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it?
Isn’t it?

Isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it?
Isn’t it delicate?

Sometimes I wonder when you sleep
Are you ever dreaming of me?
Sometimes when I look into your eyes
I pretend you’re mine all the damn time
’cause I like you

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it chill that you’re in my head?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

Yeah, I want you

Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it too soon to do this yet?
’cause I know that it’s delicate

REPEAT
