About Lover

"Lover" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift for her seventh studio album of the same name (2019). Swift produced the song with Jack Antonoff, and it was released on August 16, 2019, by Republic Records as the third single from the album. "Lover" is a country, indie folk and pop ballad that features a booming snare, slow tempo and guitar-centric sound. Over a retro-styled musical motif, Swift sings lyrics about devotion to her partner, in this case, English actor Joe Alwyn. The song received universal acclaim from critics, who praised its nostalgic quality and Swift's songwriting. In the US, the song peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the album's third consecutive top ten single on the Hot 100. It also entered the top ten in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore. The song received a nomination for Song of the Year at the 62nd Grammy Awards. The music video for "Lover" was directed by Swift and Drew Kirsch, and features dancer Christian Owens as Swift's love interest. Premiering on August 22, 2019, the video is set in brightly colored rooms and a dollhouse, and shows the couple fighting and making up. Swift performed the song at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.

 Struggling with Lover? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
This is our place, we make the rules
And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
Have I known you twenty seconds or twenty years?

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home
You're my, my, my, my lover

We could light a bunch of candles and dance around the kitchen, baby
Pictures of when we were young would hang on the wall
We would sit on the stoop, I'll sing love songs to you when we're eighty
See I finally got you now, honey, I won't let you fall

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home (forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my lover

Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?
With every guitar string scar on my hand
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover
Look in my eyes, they will tell you the truth 
The girl in my story has always been you
I'd go down with the Titanic, it's true , for you, lover
And you'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me
And at every table, I'll save you a seat, lover (save you a seat)

Can I go where you go? (Can I go where you go, baby?)
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home (forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Oh, you're my, my, my, my
Darling, you're my, my, my, my
Lover
