Fans think that “Midnights” is about a secret miscarriage that Swift had.
Fans of Taylor Swift think that the song “Midnights,” which is one of the most emotional on her new album, could be about a secret miscarriage.
“Bigger Than The Whole Sky,” a bonus track on the just-released “3am” edition of the CD, is about a heartbreaking loss, but it doesn’t say what happened to cause the sadness.
In the first verse, Swift, who is 32, sings, “No words come to me in the aftermath/Salt streams out of my eyes and into my ears.” “Everything I touch makes me sad / Because it’s all over now, all out to sea.”
In the second verse, it talks about having to say goodbye to someone you’ve never met.
“Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. You were bigger than the whole sky. You were more than just a short time. And I have a lot to miss/a lot to live without.”
Swift continues, “I’m never going to meet what could’ve been, would’ve been, what should’ve been you, what could’ve been, would’ve been you.”
Even though it’s not clear what made Swift write the song or if she wrote it from her own point of view, fans took to Twitter to guess what the heartbreaking lyrics might mean.
One fan wrote, “Did Taylor Swift write “Bigger than the whole sky” about a miscarriage because?”
“Bigger than the whole sky, Taylor Swift’s new song, is hard to listen to after a miscarriage. Someone else tweeted, “I may have cried too many times while listening to it.”
Another Swiftie said on social media that people who have lost a pregnancy shouldn’t listen to the “rough” song unless they are in a good mood.
“Hey, other moms who have had miscarriages: Bigger Than The Whole Sky, one of the bonus tracks on Taylor Swift’s new album, is hard. I’d suggest listening to it with some tissues when you’re not already feeling raw.”
Since 2016, Swift has been dating actor Joe Alwyn, but she has been very quiet about their relationship. There were rumors that they got engaged in June, which the Grammy winner seemed to address in the first song of the album.
“All they keep asking me is if I’m going to be your bride/The only kind of girl they see is a one-night stand or a wife,” she sang in “Lavender Haze” about her relationship with the 31-year-old, who co-wrote on “Midnights” and previous albums under the name William Bowery.
Fans have also been trying to figure out Swift’s Easter eggs, which are hidden messages she often puts in her songs. There are a few on her latest album.
Many of Taylor Swift’s fans think that in her song “You’re On Your Own, Kid,” she revealed the name of her friend Blake Lively’s unborn child and threw shade at her rivals Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
She also seemed to call out John Mayer, who was her boyfriend more than a decade ago.
Several sources say that fans will be able to hear all of Swift’s mysterious lyrics live when she goes on a huge stadium tour next year.
