Daylight Lyrics Meaning
Let’s learn the meaning behind the lyrics of Daylight by Taylor Swift section-wise.
The song starts off of Taylor mentioning her relationship failures till the date. Every relationship she’s ever been in were as cruel as the big cities she’s visited.
People that look amazing in the Hollywood lights were worse than she could ever imagine.
But somehow, she is the one who gets sexist remarks from people all the time. This is why she talks about the privileges of being a man in the track “The Man”.
She has had people trying to ruin her reputation by involving her in multiple scandals.
Nevertheless, Taylor is shown on the wrong side every single time by the media. She has talked about always being ready for the combat in the track “The Archer”.
Swift tries to tell her side of the story in every scandal.
However, it is a miracle that she gets stronger and bigger every time someone tries to let her down.
Way to go Taylor Swift!
The current stronger version of Taylor only sees the Daylight. She has no room for gloomy and moody people around her.

Now that Taylor has met a man of her dreams, she is letting go of all the negativities cast by other people by stepping in the daylight!
She doesn’t want to involve herself with anyone else but him, her man, just him.
