Taylor Swift's "White Horse" Is a Callback to Her Early Days

If you're a fan of Taylor Swift, you probably already know about her song "White Horse." It's one of the standouts on Fearless and is definitely a callback to her earlier days.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard a Taylor Swift song with this much of an emphasis on the concept of old Taylor. But now, it seems like that old Taylor is finally making a return with her new album Reputation.

The title of the track "White Horse" refers to a poem about a prince who rides his white horse into battle and then comes back. In this case, the white horse represents the love that Swift is trying to find in her life.

In the song, Swift sings, "It’s too late for you and your white horse to come around," which is about a romance that ended too soon. As a result, Taylor feels disappointed in herself.

Her relationship wasn't what she hoped it would be, but she's still hoping to find someone who loves her and treats her well. That's not always the case in romance, and she’s not sure if she can trust her own feelings to make it work again.

This song is all about love and fairytales, and the fact that she’s so desperate to find someone who can really treat her right. The video is also a good reminder of how hard it can be to love again after a breakup, and how difficult it can be to get over that initial feeling of loss.
