It has been three years since Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn began dating. The couple is yet to make their first red carpet appearance. However, they have been spotted together on dinner and other occasions. Over the past three years, Taylor has been mum about her relationship with the British actor. fans have learned and decoded things about their relationship through her songs. She recently released the album titled Lover where she shares some interesting insights about her relationship with Joe. But why is Taylor not talking about her relationship with Joe?
Turns out, Taylor feels she can express her thoughts about her relationship through her songs instead of interviews. Featuring on the cover of the upcoming issue of Rolling Stones, Taylor explained, “Singing about something helps you to express it in a way that feels more accurate. You cannot, no matter what, put words in a quote and have it move someone the same way as if you heard those words with the perfect sonic representation of that feeling.”
A proof of which is the title track of Lover. She beautiful put together her thoughts, shared insights into her relationship and teased the possible next step in the love track. However, while she is penning these songs about her love life, Taylor confessed she faces a “weird conflict.” She said, “There is that weird conflict in being a confessional songwriter and then also having my life, you know, 10 years ago, be catapulted into this strange pop-culture thing.”
Lover wasn’t the first time Taylor referred to Joe. Back in 2017, she referred to Joe in her Reputation album. She deemed it as a “love story” in chaos. “It was a love story in amongst chaos,” Swift told the magazine of the record. “All the weaponized sort of metallic battle anthems were what was going on outside. That was the battle raging on that I could see from the windows, and then there was what was happening inside my world — my newly quiet, cozy world that was happening on my own terms for the first time … It’s weird, because in some of the worst times of my career, and reputation, dare I say, I had some of the most beautiful times — in my quiet life that I chose to have,” she said.
