Everything Taylor Swift Reveals on Reputation About Her Sweet and Sexy Romance with Joe Alwyn
The singer was seemingly inspired by their year-long romance on several tracks off her new album
Her previously released tracks “Call It What You Want” and “Gorgeous” were seemingly inspired by Alwyn, and the other emotional and sexy love songs on the album put to rest any doubt she’s happier than ever in her personal life.
“Delicate” appears to have been written or inspired by the start of a relationship, much like “Gorgeous.”
“Is it cool that I said all that / Is it too soon to do this yet / ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate,” she questions on the track.
Some fans who attended Swift’s secret sessions revealed the singer once tried to run from their relationship, but Alwyn wouldn’t let her.
While she again doesn’t name names in the song, “Dancing with Our Hands Tied” might be about that tricky period in their courtship.
“You said that there was nothin’ in the world that could stop it / I had a bad feelin’,” she sings. “People started talkin’, putting us through our paces / I knew there was no one in the world who could take it.”
Just like in “Call It What You Want,” Swift, 27, insists in “King of My Heart” that she was “perfectly fine” being independent but fell for Alwyn, 26, anyway.

In the sultry tracks “Dress” and “So It Goes,” she sings about their deep physical connection. “Gettin’ caught up in a moment / Lipstick all in your face / You know I’m not a bad girl, but I do bad things with you,” she sings in “Dress.”
She also seems to confirm fan rumors that she and Alwyn met at or around the time of the Met Ball last year.
“Flashback to when you met me / Your buzz cut / And my hair bleached,” she sings. Alwyn sported a buzzcut while filming Billy Lynn’s Halftime Walk, and Swift had bleached hair for a few months in the spring of 2016.
For those who think the relationship might just be a physical one, the tracks “End Game” (feat. Ed Sheeran and Future), “Don’t Blame Me” and the heartfelt ballad “New Year’s Day” make it clear she’s head over heels.
“You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi / I can tell that it’s gonna be a long road / I’ll be there if you’re the toast of the town babe / Or if you strike out and you’re crawling home,” she sings on “New Year’s Day.”
