“I wrote songs that made me think I was a pioneer in a forbidden love affair,” explained Swift.
“Was that ‘I want to give you a child’? Is that one of the lines? “Asked McCartney.
“Oh, that’s a song called ‘Peace,” “replied Swift.
“‘Peace’, I like this one,” added McCartney.
“‘Peace’ is actually more ingrained in my personal life,” shared Swift. “I know you have done a really great job in your personal life: creating a human life in a public life and how scary that can be when you fall in love and meet someone, especially when you have met someone who is a very has a grounded, normal way of life. “
“In my fears I can often control how I am as a person and how normal I behave and rationalize things, but I cannot control whether there are 20 photographers out in the bushes and what they are doing and whether they are following our car and when they are interrupt our lives, ”added Swift. “I have no control over whether there will be a wrong headline about us on the news tomorrow.”
“So how does that work?” Asked McCartney. “Does your partner sympathize with this and understand?”
“Oh, absolutely,” replied Swift.
Singer “Betty” began dating Alwyn in 2016, although their romance didn’t become public until months later. After a number of high profile relationships (and breakups), Swift said she took a different approach with the actor.
“I think that by knowing him and being in the relationship I am in right now, I’ve definitely made decisions that make my life feel more like a real life and less like a tabloid plot will, “explained Swift. “Whether that determines where you live, who you hang out with, when you don’t take a photo – the idea of privacy feels so strange when you try to explain, but it’s really just about finding a bit of normalcy.”
Swift talks about this in “Peace”.
“Would it be enough if I could never reach the normalcy we both long for?” She added.
Just because Swift is happy in her personal life doesn’t mean fans don’t get good breakup songs. When McCartney realized she was “writing breakup songs like they were going out of style,” Swift laughed.
“I was before my luck changed,” she replied. “I still write break-up songs. I love a good breakup song. Because somewhere in the world I always have a friend who’s going through a breakup and that will make me want to write one. “
