Taylor Swift’s “Evermore” Is A Masterstroke Of Her Songwriting Ability

And that’s where Evermore shines brightest — when Taylor sings about the things that seem so hyper-specific and at-times abstract, but can still be applied to anyone’s life. “‘Tis The Damn Season,” seems like a cinematic hometown hook-up or rekindling with an ex; “Long Story Short” reflects on dating the wrong person admittedly out of loneliness. “Closure” is 2020 Taylor’s outlook on apologies from people who fuck you over: “Yes, I got your letter. Yes, I’m doing better.” In other words, save it.
