After catching a sneak peek on Good Morning America, fans simply couldn’t wait to dive into the meaning of Taylor Swift’s lyrics to “You All Over Me.” The new single is one of six previously unreleased “From the Vault” songs included on the re-recorded version of her second album, Fearless, out April 6.
“You All Over Me” might sound familiar to some Swifties, and it’s because the song once leaked online in 2017. This time around, however, the song features country singer Marren Morris, who ends up being the perfect fit for this Fearless-era record. Taylor is back in all her country twang glory, and we’re so here for it. And it sounds like Taylor is, too: In an Instagram post celebrating the release of her new version of Fearless, the “Cardigan” singer opened up about the “magic” of going back to her youth with this album.
“Fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth,” Swift wrote. “It was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she’d been shown in the movies.”
Among those lessons was how to deal with heartbreak and exes—and that’s where “You All Over Me” comes in. This song details all the feelings of not being able to get over an ex with lyrics like, “But no amount of freedom gets you clean/ I’ve still got you all over me.”
Yet no matter how hard it is to move on, Taylor sings about the importance of acceptance and making your peace with the situation: “I lived, and I learned, and found out what it was to turn around/ And see that we were never really meant to be.” TBH, it’s pretty solid advice!
