Taylor Swift seemingly hinted at the reasons are relationship with ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn came to end as she performed on the second concert of her Eras Tour in Melbourne on Saturday.

During the Folklore section of her show, Swift revealed how she really felt while she was writing the 2020 album, which she wrote when quarantined with Alwyn in London during the pandemic.

“[I was] imagining that, instead of being a lonely millennial woman covered in cat hair drinking my weight in white wine, I was a ghostly Victorian lady wandering through the woods with a candle in a candlestick holder, and I wrote only on parchment with a feathered quill,” she said in a fan-shared clip from the show.

She continued, “That was in my mind, what I thought I looked like, writing Folklore. … So that’s all that matters: the delusion.”

Swift and Alwyn had been together for nearly six years as they began dating in 2017 and broke up in early 2023. Moreover, Alwyn even helped the musician write Exile and Betty, under the pseudonym William Bowery.

The Lavender Haze singer also reflected on her former relationship in her 2023 Person of the Year profile published in Time magazine in December.

“Life is short. Have adventures. Me locking myself away in my house for a lot of years — I’ll never get that time back,” she said. “I’m more trusting now than I was six years ago.”

The Grammy-winning musician has since moved on with NFL athlete Travis Kelce.
