Taylor Swift sings heartbreaking lyrics in new collab after Joe Alwyn split
Taylor Swift News
Taylor Swift, a longtime fan of The National, collaborated with them on their latest album and offered fans a heartbreaking duet that had many in tears.
The Anti-hero creator collaborated with Matt Berninger on The Alcott, a song from the band’s ninth album, First Two Pages of Frankenstein, which was released on Friday, April 28. It depicts the story of two ex-lovers contemplating the end of their relationship.
Matt Berninger starts the song singing, “I get myself twisted in threads to meet you at The Alcott / I’d go to the corner in the back where you’d always be / And there you are, sittin’ as usual with your golden notebook / Writing something about someone who used to be me”.
Swift joins in on the chorus: “And the last thing you wanted is the first thing I do / I tell you my problems, you tell me the truth / It’s the last thing you wanted, it’s the first thing I do / I tell you that I think I’m falling back in love with you.”
She goes on, “Tell me, which side are you on, dear? / Give me some tips to forget you,” she sings. “Have I become one of your problems? / Could it be easy this once?”
The lyrics inevitably left Swift fans upset, given the duet comes on the heels of Swift’s breakup with longtime beau Joe Alwyn, which was announced earlier this month.
Berninger, brothers Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner, and brothers Scott Devendorf and Bryan Devendorf make up the rock band.
