Meaning of each song with TTPD Shirt
Explore the story of Taylor behind each song while wearing your TTPD Shirt, connecting fashion with music in a personal and stylish way.

Swift begins The Tortured Poets Department by calling herself a “functional alcoholic,” obsessed with her typewriter-wielding tragic hero, and declaring her name is hers to shame as she pleases. Despite the melodrama, her melancholy lyrics are most stunning when she plunges into the illusions of love and heartbreak she’s longed to write about for years. Escapism and longing cause tears.

The album was originally announced as 16 songs plus four bonus tracks in physical copies. There was more to discover two hours following its publication. Swift said, “I’d written so much tortured poetry in the past 2 years and wanted to share it all with you, so here’s the second installment of TTPD: The Anthology. 15 additional songs. Now the story belongs to you, not mine. The cathartic album tune “Florida!!!” calls for crying and wine to have “a hell of a time,” as Swift’s duet partner Florence Welch sings. Let’s find out each song meaning.

1. Fortnight

“Fortnight” (with Post Malone): In the opening track of TTPD, Taylor Swift and Post Malone collaborate to sing about a “temporary” affair that lasted for a fortnight, which is equivalent to two weeks. As the lyrics hint, “And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” the song can be heard. “I touched you, for only a fortnight.”
According to the lyrics, the song seems to be a reference to Taylor’s rekindled romance with Matty Healy, who is a member of The 1975. This affair began in 2014 and was revived ten years later in the spring of 2023, after she had ended her relationship with Joe Alwyn.

And despite the fact that the rekindling of Taylor and Matty’s relationship was just for a short period of time, these lyrics claim that it was filled to the brim with feelings. Her statement to iHeartRadio was that the opening track is “fatalistic” in the same way that the remainder of the “tragic” album is.

“Fortnight” may also serve as a direct antithesis to Taylor’s song “Daylight,” beyond just the usual juxtaposition between day and night. Fortnight serves as both an internal rhyme of “Daylight” and, with it also being collaborated upon by Post Malone, it acts as a stark contrast to the solo-performed “Daylight” that concluded the 2019 album.

The song’s opening line, “You left your typewriter at my apartment,” references Matty’s 2019 GQ interview, where he said he “really” liked typewriters. Later in the song, the lyrics reveal Taylor and Matty’s close friendship. At dinner, you take my ring off my middle finger and put it on the one people wear wedding rings on. That was the closest I got to a heart explosion.” Taylor also references poet Dylan Thomas (“you’re not Dylan Thomas”) and singer-songwriter Patti Smith (“I’m not Patti Smith”). Charlie Puth, too. “You smoked, then ate seven bars of chocolate / We declared Charlie Puth should be a bigger artist.”

2. But Daddy, I love Him TTPD Shirt

“But Daddy I Love Him” caused Taylor to raise her eyebrows when she spent time with Matty, who has been criticized for his controversial utterances over the course of his career. She discusses a similar issue in her song “But Daddy I Love Him,” which is the desire to have a relationship that is successful despite the criticism that comes from the outside world.

“No I’m not coming to my senses,” she declares. “I know it’s crazy but he’s the one I want.”

“Fresh Out the Slammer”: After getting out of a long relationship with Joe, Taylor seemingly knew who she wanted to call: Matty. 

“I did my time,” she sings. “Now pretty baby I’m running back home to you.”

3. Florida!!!

“Florida!!!” (featuring Florence and the Machine): What to do when you need an escape? Head to Florida. At least, that’s what Taylor and Florence Welch advise in this track.

“You can beat the heat if you beat the charges too / They said I was a cheat, I guess it must be true,” Taylor sings, referencing speculation about her personal life. “And my friends, all smell like weed or little babies / And the city reeks of driving myself crazy.”

“I need to forget, so take me to Florida,” the lyrics later continue. “I’ve got some regrets, I’ll bury them in Florida.”

Taylor explained that the song was actually inspired by true crime sagas about escaping town.

“I’m always watching like Dateline—people, you know, have these crimes that they commit,” she told. “Where do they immediately skip town and go to? They go to Florida, you know? They like try to reinvent themselves, have a new identity, blend in. And I think when you go through a heartbreak, there’s a part of you that thinks, ‘I want a new name, I want a new life, I don’t want anyone to know where I’ve been or know me at all.’”

One last secret about “Florida!!!”? Taylor’s pal Emma Stone helped write the song.

“Guilty as Sin?”: In another apparent nod to Matty, Taylor starts “Guilty as Sin?” with the lyrics, “Drowning in the Blue Nile / He sent me downtown lights.” Well, it just so happens that, back in 2022, Matty named The Blue Nile’s Hats as one of his favorite albums of the 1980s.

4. I Can Do It With a Broken Heart

“I Can Do It With A Broken Heart” recalls Swift’s post-breakup tour. In the chorus, she says she was “faking it until she made it.” The lyrics read, “The lights refract sequin stars off her silhouette every night”. Swift’s Eras Tour ensembles, constructed from sequined stars from Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Nicole + Felicia Couture, Alberta Ferretti, and others, define this lyrics.

The record-breaking “Eras Tour” began in March 2023 after Swift and British actor Joe Alwyn split after six years of dating in April 2023. This can be verified by checking The Eras Tour dates, which begin in Florida. One of thirty-one tracks on her twelfth studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology”, is “Florida!!!”.

I’m So Depressed I Act Like It’s My Birthday every TTPD Shirt

The saddest lyrics in “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart”: “I’m so depressed, I act like it’s my birthday every day” & “I’m miserable, and nobody even knows!” Swift appeared to have the time of her life on The Eras Tour stage, despite heartbreak in her personal life.

5. thanK you aIMee

After Swifties were surprised at two in the morning with a double album that had fifteen additional Tortured Poet tracks, Swifties were quick to notice that Kim Kardashian’s name was included in the title of “thanK you aIMee.”

Taylor sings, “And it wasn’t a fair fight, or a clean kill / Each time that Aimee stomped across my grave,” which appears to be a reference to the infamous phone call that took place between her and Kanye West, which Kim released public in 2016. “And then she wrote hеadlinesIn the local paper, laughing at each baby step I’d take.”

But as the lyrics point out, Taylor is more powerful than she was before: “All that time you were throwing punches, I was building something for you, and I couldn’t wait to show you it was real. I Screamed “F-k you, Aimee” to the night sky, as the blood was gushing, but I can’t forget the way you made me heal.”
