Taylor Swift's New Song, "Begin Again Meaning"

February 6, 2023

Taylor Swift is a pro at writing songs about ex-boyfriends. Whether it's a guy who betrayed her, did something embarrassing, or just didn't give her the attention she deserved, she will write a song about them.

Her most famous song is probably "Should've Said No," which she wrote about a high school boyfriend who cheated on her. Though she and him dated for a while, their relationship didn't go anywhere.

The song came out in 2006, on her self-titled debut album. This is her last song on the album, and she ends it with a simple line that calls listeners to begin again.

She says, "On a Wednesday, in a cafe, I watched love begin again." It sounds like her talking about a new guy she's meeting with whom she wants to see where things go. It's not a long song, but it has all of the elements that make it a good closing track: a strong chorus line and some spoken-word.

'Begin Again' Meaning

After years of heartbreak and self-doubt, Taylor Swift is ready to let her past go and begin again with a new man. It's the first time she's really felt confident in her ability to love again.

This isn't the first time she's written a song about her past boyfriends; "All Too Well," which she wrote about Jake Gyllenhaal in 2010, was also about an ex-boyfriend who she had been dating for a while. Her latest song about her former love, "Holy Ground," is a lot more positive and reflects how she's gotten over the breakup in a healthier way.
