Fans Convinced Taylor Swift Had a Secret Miscarriage
Taylor Swift‘s new album Midnights has one emotional track that immediately moved people with its lyrics. Fans have speculated that Bigger Than The Whole Sky, one of the seven songs included in the ‘3 am‘ Edition, might be about miscarriage due to its heart-breaking lyrics.
Swift, 32, sings softly in the first verse,
“No words appear before me in the aftermath / Salt streams out my eyes and into my ears, every single thing I touch becomes sick with sadness / ‘Cause it’s all over now, all out to sea.”
Furthermore, the second verse describes saying goodbye to someone without ever having met them.
“Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye / You were bigger than the whole sky / You were more than just a short time / And I’ve got a lot to pine about/I’ve got a lot to live without.”
Further, Swift sings, “I’m never gonna meet / What could’ve been, would’ve been / What should’ve been you / What could’ve been, would’ve been you.”
While Swift has not mentioned what inspired the song – or if she even wrote it – fans speculated about the heart-breaking lyrics on Twitter.
As we can see in the album response, Swift’s fans are judging and making concocting theories about her album Midnights songs. One such theory that has become very prominent is that the song Vigilante S**t is actually about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s divorce. There has been a rollercoaster journey between Swift and the former couple for years, from enemies to friends to enemies again. According to her latest song Vigilante S**t, there has been yet another plot twist in this story.

Heads up to my fellow miscarriage mamas: Bigger Than The Whole Sky off Taylor Swift’s new album (one of the bonus tracks) is rough, and I’d suggest listening with some tissues when you’re not already feeling raw ❤️

#BiggerThanTheWholeSky was a dark horse that crept up my faves list in the last day. I wonder if the lyric “did some bird flap it’s wings over in Asia?” is about a sparrow (the Eurasian one) as sparrows are said to catch souls of the deceased & carry them to heaven. 5/5.

Swift’s fans warned those who have lost a pregnancy to ensure they’re in a good headspace before listening to the “rough” tune. Despite dating actor Joe Alwyn since 2016, Swift has remained notoriously private about their relationship. A rumor about the couple getting engaged surfaced in June, which the Grammy winner appears to have addressed in the album’s opening track.
She sang, “All they keep asking me is if I’m gonna be your bride/ the only kinda girl they see is a one night or a wife,” in Lavender Haze about her relationship with Alwyn, who co-wrote Midnights and several previous albums.
In addition to decoding Easter eggs, fans on Twitter have been trying to decode other hidden messages in Swift’s latest album.
