2. “The Archer”
“The Archer” is one of Swift’s most emotional songs to date with production that perfectly matches the introspection of the lyrics. This song focuses on Swift trying to come to terms with who she is and how she might appear to those around her. “Who could ever leave me, darling?” she croons. “But who could stay?” It’s a devastating line that sums up the theme of insecurity running through the song. However, by the end of the song, Swift has changed it to “you could stay,” which recreates the feeling of loving someone for everything that they are, faults and all.
