What does this all mean? I do not care how the confession of who wrote the song came out, but we have a new Taylor song this year!!! So what is the meaning of this song? You have come to the right place.And she sings on a little bit of it too 🙃— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual https://t.co/vW3yGOIJit
This is Taylor's song to Calvin or Adam Wiles. The main chorus says, "Lightning strikes every time she moves/And everybody's watching her/But she's looking at you." It's basically saying she is surrounded by paparazzi all the time, lightening, but she is always or was always looking at Calvin. It is super sweet of her, saying she just wanted him. It also reminds me of the line in "Out of the Woods", "I was looking at you."
One of the stanzas says, "We go fast 'til they can't replay/Who knows why it's gotta be this way/We say nothing more than we need/I say 'your place' when we leave." This is saying they go fast, when they are out and do not say much to one another when they are out for fear of listening ears. They only say enough to get out of prying eyes. The "who knows why it's gotta be this way" is a wondering why there is such a fascination with their relationship. Why do people care so much?
But in the end, "Baby, this is what you came for". Calvin came for Taylor. It's too bad it did not last and I am not going to speculate why. I am grateful they had the time to learn from one another and am grateful we got this amazing song. I hope both are happy as they move forward.
