The album’s track “So Long, London,” seems to address the Grammy winner’s 2023 breakup with Joe Alwyn featuring some of the most painful and heartbreaking lyrics. 

“You swore that you loved me but where were the clues? I died on the altar waiting for the proof,” the lyrics of the track noted. “You sacrificed us to the gods of your bluest days.”

“And I’m just getting color back into my face,” the lyrics continue. “I’m just mad as hell ’cause I loved this place for so long, London / Had a good run / Moment of warm sun / But I’m not the one.”

Meanwhile, the singles “Fortnight” (featuring Post Malone) and “Fresh Out the Slammer” appeared to give a nod to her rekindled romance with The 1975’s Matty Healy briefly revived in the spring of 2023 after her breakup with Joe. The pair first sparked relationship rumors with Matty in 2014

“Now pretty baby, I’m running back home to you,” Taylor sings in “Fresh Out the Slammer,” adding, “I know who my first call will be to.”

Taylor noted in an April 19 social media message that the chapter of her past has officially come to an end.

“The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions, and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure,” she noted in the post. “This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up.’

“There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted,” the singer continued. “This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it. And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry.”
