What an utterly beguiling song. Taylor Swift is growing up right before our eyes – as both a young woman and as a singer-songwriter.
The brilliant thing about her music (and this track in particular) is that there’s no trickery involved – no phased beats or vocoders or digital enhancements… Just a sweet, tender ballad about reassurance and love.
Taylor’s vocal in this is a little Tori in parts, embracing us with its softness, warmth and passion. Gorgeous harmonies are provided by The Civil Wars. Gorgeous track.
