Taylor Swift fans think one of the more emotional songs on her latest album, “Midnights,” could reference a secret miscarriage.
“Bigger Than The Whole Sky,” a bonus track on the “3am” edition of the just-released CD, describes a heartbreaking loss, although it does not go into detail about what caused the grief.
“No words appear before me in the aftermath / Salt streams out my eyes and into my ears,” the Swift, 32, croons in the first verse. “Every single thing I touch becomes sick with sadness / ‘Cause it’s all over now, all out to sea.”
The second verse goes on to describe having to say goodbye to someone without ever getting to meet 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.”
Swift continues, “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.”
Although it’s unclear what inspired the song — or if Swift even wrote it from her own perspective — fans took to Twitter to speculate about the heartbreaking lyrics.
“Did Taylor Swift write ‘Bigger than the whole sky’ about a miscarriage because 😢,” one fan wrote.
“Taylor swifts new song Bigger than the whole sky hits hard when you’ve suffered a miscarriage. I may have cried too many times listening to it,” another person tweeted.
Another Swiftie used social media to warn those who have suffered a pregnancy loss to make sure they’re in a good headspace before listening to the “rough” tune.
“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 ❤️.”
Swift has been dating actor Joe Alwyn since 2016, but has remained notoriously private about their relationship. In June, the pair was rumored to have gotten engaged, which the Grammy winner seemingly addressed on the opening track of the album.
“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,” she sang in “Lavender Haze” about her relationship with the 31-year-old, who co-wrote on “Midnights” and previous albums under the pseudonym William Bowery.
Fans have also been scrambling to decode other Easter eggs — hidden messages Swift is known for including in her music — featured on her latest album.
Many Swifties believe the songstress revealed the name of pal Blake Lively’s unborn baby on her song “You’re On Your Own, Kid,” and even threw some shade at rivals Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
She seemingly also called out ex-boyfriend John Mayer, whom she dated more than a decade ago.
According to multiple sources, fans will be able to take in all the cryptic lyrics live during a massive stadium tour Swift plans to embark on next year.
