Taylor Swift has a habit of writing heartbreaking songs that are incredibly personal. She has a track 5 on her albums, which is reserved for the most emotionally devastating songs.
The most popular song on her latest album, Evermore, is “Tolerate It.” This song has been causing a lot of debate among fans and sparked a lot of theories about what the lyrics mean. While some fans are busy drumming up romantic theories, others are simply focusing on trying to decipher what the song is about.
Some are comparing the song to Rebecca, the famous character from Daphne Du Maurier’s novel. The eponymous character is a woman who feels depressed and lonely because her husband barely notices her, which seems to be the same thing that happens in “Tolerate It.”
Another fan is speculating that the lyrics are about a relationship with a narcissist. She adores this man and she gives him everything she has, but he doesn’t reciprocate. He tries to make her feel bad for wanting her freedom, but she tries to put up with it.
It can be easy to think that this is a song about a break-up, but there’s more going on than that. She’s also using the song to delve into real issues that are happening around her, like the disappearance of Marjorie West. It’s a good way for Taylor to make people think about the things that they don’t always see.
