Why Taylor Swift Fans Think Her New Song Is a Message to Joe Alwyn

No rest for the Swifties!

Just hours before Taylor Swift kicked off The Eras tour in Glendale, Ariz., the Grammy winner treated fans to four brand-new songs March 17. Without hesitation, fans began dissecting the lyrics and suspected that “All of the Girls You Loved Before” is about Joe Alwyn.

So, why are fans enchanted by the new track?

For starters, Taylor begins her pre-chorus by singing, “Your past and mine are parallel lines / Stars all aligned and they intertwined.” The lyrics reminded fans of another song she wrote about Joe on midnights

titled “Mastermind” where she sings, “Once upon a time, the planets and the fates / And all the stars aligned / You and I ended up in the same room / At the same time.”

Later on in “All of the Girls You Loved Before,” the 33-year-old sings, “The way you call me ‘baby’ / Treat me like a lady.”

Fans quickly flashed back to Taylor’s reputation hit “King of My Heart,” which is also about Joe. In the track, she sings, “We met a few weeks ago / Now you try on callin’ me ‘baby’ like tryin’ on clothes.”
