Swift and Alwyn broke up earlier this 12 months just before the beginning of Swift’s Eras Tour concert series. She has since launched right into a relationship with musician Matt Healy, who has been at a lot of her shows, even acting on stage.

But the brand new tracks speaks of a difficult decision to part ways with…someone.

You say, “I do not understand” and I say, “I do know you do not”
We thought a cure would come through in time, now, I fear it won’t
Remember lookin’ at this room, we loved it ‘reason behind the sunshine
Now, I just sit at the hours of darkness and wonder if it is time

In April, after news of the Alwyn breakup got here out, a source told People, “The differences of their personalities have also develop into harder to disregard after years together. They’ve grown apart.”

Ultimately, they didn’t “understand” each other well enough to proceed their connection, it seems. They were together for six years, nonetheless, and within the pre-chorus Swift sings about the right way to make a choice about letting go of all the things she has “built.”

Do I throw out all the things we built or keep it?
I’m getting drained even for a phoenix
At all times risin’ from the ashes
Mendin’ all her gashes
You would possibly just have dealt the ultimate blow

The source also told Those who at other times, Swift and Alwyn had rough patches they repaired, so the lyrics may very well be referring to the stress of whether or not something is actually over.

“They’ve had rough patches before and all the time worked things out, so friends thought they’d take a while apart [now] but eventually come back together,” the source explained. “Ultimately [they] weren’t the correct fit for each other.”

Stop, you are losing me
Stop, you are losing me
Stop, you are losing me
I can not discover a pulse
My heart won’t start anymore for you
‘Cause you are losing me

[Verse 2]
Every mornin’, I glared at you with storms in my eyes
How are you going to say that you just love someone you’ll be able to’t tell is dyin’?
I sent you signals and bit my nails right down to the short
My face was gray, but you would not admit that we were sick

One other source told ET that they were too different to work, nevertheless it was tough to finish due to time spent together.

“It was more of Taylor’s decision to interrupt up, but each of them realized that they weren’t completely right for each other,” said the source. “That they had been together for such an extended time and were spending a lot time together, but their personalities were just too different. Joe is more introverted, shy, and quiet.”

And the air is thick with loss and indecision
I do know my pain is such an imposition
Now, you are running down the hallway
And you understand what all of them say
“You do not know what you bought until it’s gone”

Later within the bridge, Swift sings she’s the “smartest thing at this party” and one in every of their last appearances together was at a Grammys afterparty.

How long could we be a tragic song
‘Til we were too far gone to bring back to life?
I gave you all my best me’s, my countless empathy
And all I did was bleed as I attempted to be the bravest soldier
Fighting in just your army, frontlines, don’t you ignore meI’m the perfect thing at this party (You are losing me)

But one in every of the most important clues about Alwyn was the road right after:

And I would not marry me either

In a 2022 interview for WSJ. Magazine, Alwyn made a rare comment on the questions on his relationship with Swift — and their rumored engagement.

“If I had a pound for each time I believe I have been told I have been engaged, then I’d have loads of pound coins,” he said. “I mean, the reality is, if the reply was yes, I would not say, and if the reply was no, I would not say.”

Around their breakup, sources told Those who Swift and Alwyn were “talking about marriage as recently as just a few months ago.”

Clearly, things went a unique way.

A pathological people pleaser
Who only wanted you to see her
And I’m fading, thinkin’
“Do something, babe, say something” (Say something)
“Lose something, babe, risk something” (You are losing me)
“Select something, babe, I got nothing” (I got nothing)
“To imagine, unless you are selecting me”

The ultimate verse wherein Swift sings “Select something, babe, I got nothing/ To imagine, unless you are selecting me” could allude to Alwyn’s alleged insecurity with the extent of fame Swift contended with.

“Ultimately, they each realized they weren’t on the identical page anymore,” a source told the Every day Mail. “It’s been hard for Joe attempting to make it in Hollywood and never quite becoming leading man material while dating one of the crucial famous women on the earth over the past six years. It was easier through the pandemic when it was just the 2 of them, but once things returned to normal, Taylor Swift the superstar emerged, and their differences were much more apparent. They really made a go of it and tried all the things they might but ultimately were unable to avoid wasting the connection.”

You are losing me
Stop (Stop, stop), you are losing me
Stop (Stop, stop), you are losing me
I can not discover a pulse, my heart won’t start anymore
