By now you’ve probably heard the news that Taylor Swift and her long-time boyfriend Joe Alwyn have broken up. There is a small sliver of me holding on to hope that these are false rumors. However, her publicist who is quick to dispel false rumors has been noticeably silent. Leading me to believe she was the “source”. And consequently that the relationship Swift has been so eloquently writing about for 5 albums now, is truly over. It is reported to have been an amicable split and that the two stars simply grew apart. But that doesn’t mean it’s somewhat easy. As a 15+ year die-hard Taylor Swift fan, I can’t help but feel sad for Swift and Alwyn. The relationship lasted for 6 almost 7 years and led to numerous love songs that Taylor Swift wrote about now ex-beau Joe Alwyn.
While critics of the global superstar are quick to think they are swift by saying “Here comes another album” or label her the “problem”, she is hardly a “serial dater” these days. Not only is this incredibly insensitive, it’s also a false narrative that she only writes breakup songs. The relationship lasted for 6 almost 7 years and led to numerous love songs that Taylor Swift wrote about now ex-beau Joe Alwyn.

I just hope she is ok, and that this will lead her to who she is meant to be with. Even if that isn’t Alwyn. But for now let’s take a look back at the songs Taylor Swift wrote for Joe Alwyn and the lyrics that were once inspiring, that now take a heartbreaking tone.
