Staring at the ceiling while listening to this song and thinking about the one. Got a lot of memories back?
Lavender Haze is now out. Taylor Swift looks stunning and slays in her new song. If you didn’t know, the first single from Taylor Swift’s tenth studio album, Midnights, is the newly released ‘Lavender Haze.’
This love song is hinted at Taylor and her six-year boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Along with the track’s unveiling, Taylor shared a short video on Instagram about how she came up with the idea for the song and what it is about.
Surprisingly, Taylor Swift hinted a little something about her private relationship. The lyrics do speak a lot of things. But Taylor, you’re amazing! Let’s take an in-depth look at the song.
Taylor Swift’s ‘Lavender Haze’ Lyrics Probably Refer To Her & Joe Alwyn’s Love Story
We can’t get enough of Taylor’s beautiful voice, but the lyrics have a deeper significance. And if you listen closely, you will understand what it means.
Taylor explained, “I happened upon the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men. I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool and it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the 50s where they would just describe being in love.
If you were in the lavender haze, then that meant you were in that all-encompassing love glow and I thought that was really beautiful. I guess theoretically when you’re in the lavender haze, you’ll do anything to stay there and not let people bring you down off of that cloud.
I think a lot of people have to deal with this now because we live in the era of social media and if the world finds out you’re in love with somebody, they’re going to weigh in on it.”

Taylor Swift then further disclosed and hinted to her followers by remarking, “Like my relationship for six years we’ve had to dodge weird rumors, tabloid stuff, and we just ignore it. So this song is about the act of ignoring that stuff to protect the real stuff.”
I’ve been under scrutiny (Yeah, oh yeah)
You handle it beautifully (Yeah, oh yeah)
All this shit is new to me (Yeah, oh yeah)
The word ‘beautifully’ speaks for itself. The lyrics allude to Alwyn’s careful handling of their relationship in interview sessions. That’s actually quite endearing. She and Alwyn started dating in 2016, and there have been a lot of rumors about Taylor, which is actually awful.
Swift probably says from the lyrics that Alwyn chooses to ignore talk concerning her past and dating background. And that this thing is actually ‘new’ for her.
Alwyn said in an interview, “I think because the precedent was set—that our choice is to be private and not feed that side of things—the more you do that, hopefully, the more that intrusiveness or intrigue drops off.”
Taylor Swift Addressed ‘Engagement’ Rumors Through Lyrics
We’ve all seen what happens when celebrities start dating. People are always making up stories about them getting married or engaged, and when this will happen.
Similarly, Taylor and Joe’s relationship was dogged by rumors, specifically ‘engagement rumors.’
All they keep asking me [All they keep asking me]
Is if I’m gonna be your bride
The only kind of girl they see [The only kind of girl they see]
Is a one night or a wife.
“I find it dizzying (Yeah, oh yeah)
They’re bringing up my history (Yeah, oh yeah)
But you weren’t even listening.
Alwyn also addressed the engagement talks to an outlet. “If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins. I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
Now when you will listen to the lyrics once again after knowing the meaning behind them, it makes more sense.
What are your thoughts on this new song? We absolutely loved it and are looking forward to listening to more tracks by one and only Taylor Swift.
