Taylor Swift's 'Call It What You Want' Is Filled With Details About Boyfriend Joe Alwyn & Her Year in Hiding

Our girl Taylor Swift sure knows how to tease an album. Last night she dropped another track from her upcoming album Reputation, which comes out on Nov. 10. The song, titled "Call It What You Want," seems to be another love song about her beau Joe Alwyn—the third such tune she's released off of her new album, which suggests things are very serious between the low-profile couple. 

"Call It What You Want" is packed with clues as to what the heck Taylor's been up to since she went off the radar in 2016. She opens the song referencing the plethora of drama that surrounded her before her hiatus. "My castle crumbled overnight / I brought a knife to a gunfight / They took the crown but it’s alright" is likely talking about Kimye. But it could also be about Katy Perry…or Calvin Harris. There are options.

In my opinion, the song is mostly about how she's living her best life with her new BF. She sings, "Nobody’s heard from me for months / I’m doing better than I ever was." Yes, girl—good for you. 

She then seems to sing her boyfriend's praises, literally. 

"Cause my baby’s fit like a daydream
Walking with his head down
I’m the one he’s walking to
So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to
My baby’s fly like a jet stream
High above the whole scene
Loves me like I’m brand new
So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to." 

Not to mention she may or may not be referencing "Love Story" in some lyrics. She sings, "Holding my breath, slowly I said / 'You don’t need to save me / But would you run away with me?' / 'Yes.'” Sound familiar? 

My 16-year-old self is losing her mind, and other OG Taylor fans feel the same.

While promoting the song on social media, T. Swift also shared some unseen moments from her very elusive life this past year. She sips wine, paints a little, plays the guitar, hangs out with her mom's dog and, of course, looks adorable AF the whole time. Basically she's living the perfect life. 

Taylor Swift is a genius, point blank. TBH, I could write a senior thesis on this song it's so packed with meaning. November 10 can't come fast enough.
