‘Midnights‘ is the tenth studio album by Taylor Swift following her ‘evermore‘ and ‘folklore‘ album releases in 2020. Announcing the album, Taylor Swift said “This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams.” The album was released on October 21, 2022.
Taylor Swift has always been the ‘good girl’ type throughout her career. She has tried to maintain a true role model character ever since she burst upon the scene from a small town in Tennessee. She has also compared herself to the small-town girl who came to the big city with big dreams and expectations. And here, her fate takes a turn.

Taylor Swift “Question…?” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Our story begins with a small-town good girl moving to the big city with big dreams and big expectations. No, she does not fall in love with an evil man this time. But as fate would have it, she does come across a man.
Did you ever have someone kiss you in a crowded room
Everything started here. A random stranger kissed this lonely good girl in a crowded room. She is taken back by surprise, but she is naive, too. She imagines her childhood fairytale fantasy is about to come true–a white knight to sweep her off her feet spontaneously. So, she wants to see where this goes.
Her friends laugh, initially, then clap. What a heroic moment. What a story to tell their grandkids.
But stories like these are far and few these days (and could potentially land you in jail, too). There had to be a catch. But the good girl wanted to see it through.
Surely enough, this spontaneous man has another love interest.
So, why did he kiss her? Does he not love his partner? Does he have no respect for their relationship? Or maybe he saw his partner with another guy and came to some worrying conclusions. Was he drunk? Is he crazy? The good girl has so many questions.
However, between the time of the good girl’s first kiss with this man and this realization, there have been far too many nights together. She got hooked. In blissful ignorance, the good girl started building her palace around them.
But now, the sad realization is bringing their castle down. The good girl hasn’t had such an experience before. She is curious. Why? How? What if?
