Taylor Swift talks all about being lovestruck in her latest song “Gorgeous” — and Swifties can’t help but think the pop star is talking about current boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
The third song off her upcoming album, Reputation, dropped at midnight Friday, hours after Swift teased sneak peeks on social media. Though few fans and followers speculated that Alwyn was the inspiration behind “…Ready for It,” it’s clear “Gorgeous” is about Swift’s romance with the British actor.
“You’re so gorgeous/ I can’t say anything to your face/ ‘Cause look at your face/ And I’m so furious/ At you for making me feel this way/ But what can I say?/ You’re gorgeous,” Swift sings in the chorus.
In addition, the Grammy winner mentions “ocean blue eyes” which (not so) coincidently is the same color as Alwyn’s eyes. “Ocean blue eyes looking in mine/ I feel like I might sink and drown and die,” she sings.
Later on, Swift belts out: “You make me so happy it turns back to sad/ There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have.”
Confirmed in May that Swift, 27, and Alwyn, 26, were dating. She had been largely out of the spotlight since February, and it turns out she had been secretly seeing Alwyn.
And in late August, a source close to the singer told exclusively that the couple is still “very happy together” and continuing to spend time together out of the spotlight.
“Her decision to keep her relationship with Joe quiet is making her happy,” said the source. “They have been getting to know each other slowly without any pressure.”
Swift even mentions her beloved Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson: “Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats, alone, unless you wanna come along.”
Last week, Swift had personally visited a fan in the U.K., and was accompanied by with Alwyn’s younger brother Patrick.
