Taylor Swift Reveals the True Meaning of Songs from the Department of Tortured Poets – E!  Online – E!  NEWS

“Loml”: In the moving track, Taylor sings for the first time about being called the love of someone’s life “about a million times.” But the dynamic quickly changed.

“If you know it at a glance, it’s legendary,” she notes. “What we thought was eternal was momentary.”

She ends the song by letting the person know, “You are the waste of my life.”

While it could be about her long relationship with Joe, the lyrics about “rekindled flames” and “we were just kids, baby” suggest it’s about her spark with Matty after all those years: “I have felt a glow like that never before and never since.”

“I can do it with a broken heart”: The song appears to be about Taylor killing her Eras tour despite heartbreak, noting that she “hits my marks” on stage in front of a singing crowd. She hides her emotions by putting on a strong face: “Lights, camera, slutty smile.”

Although this song is upbeat, it is filled with lyrics of unrequited love.

“I’m so obsessed with him, but he avoids me like the plague / I cry a lot, but I’m so productive, it’s an art,” she sings. “You know you’re good when you can do it even with a broken heart.”

“The smallest man who ever lived”: Taylor has some questions for “the smallest man who ever lived,” who seemingly left their relationship out of nowhere.

“You turned out the stage lights, but you keep playing,” she sings. “And you hid in plain sight / But you are what you made.”
