Taylor Swift Writes a Song Called “Cardigan,” and Makes Merch to Match

There are a lot of clothes references in Taylor Swift’s song “Cardigan” from her just released album Folklore. The song is mostly about young love and ultimately, heartbreak, but there are mentions of a “vintage tee,” “high heels on cobblestones,” and “dancin’ in your Levi’s.” The main reference is, of course, a cardigan.

Taylor Swift

In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result, a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness. Picking up a pen was my way of escaping into fantasy, history, and memory. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve.

Cardigan – Taylor Swift

[Verse 1]

Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

[Chorus]

But I knew you
Dancin’ in your Levi’s
Drunk under a streetlight, I
I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt
Baby, kiss it better, I

[Refrain]

And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

[Verse 2]

A friend to all is a friend to none
Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

[Chorus]

But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek and
Giving me your weekends, I
I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line
Once in twenty lifetimes, I

[Refrain]

And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

[Bridge]

To kiss in cars and downtown bars
Was all we needed
You drew stars around my scars
But now I’m bleedin’

[Chorus]

‘Cause I knew you
Steppin’ on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain, I
I knew you
Tried to change the ending
Peter losing Wendy, I
I knew you
Leavin’ like a father
Running like water, I
And when you are young, they assume you know nothing

[Verse 3]

But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would hang around this long
‘Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time
Chasin’ shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standin’ in my front porch light
And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back

[Refrain]

And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite
