Everything Has Changed
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You good to go?

All I knew
This morning when I woke
Is I know something now
Know something now I didn't before
And all I've seen
Since eighteen hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles and your smile
In the back of my mind making me feel like

I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you, know you, know you

'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello"
And your eyes look like comin' home
All I know is a simple name
And everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

And all my walls
Stood tall painted blue
But I'll take 'em down, take 'em down
And open up the door for you
And all I feel
In my stomach is butterflies
The beautiful kind, makin' up for lost time
Takin' flight, makin' me feel like

I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you, know you, know you

'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello"
And your eyes look like comin' home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
And you'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

Come back and tell me why
I'm feelin' like I've missed you all this time
And meet me there tonight
And let me know that it's not all in my mind

I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you, know you, know you

All I know is we said, "Hello"
Your eyes look like comin' home
All I know is a simple name
And everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

All I know is we said, "Hello"
So dust off your highest hopes
All I know is pouring rain
And everything has changed
All I know is a new found grace
All my days, I'll know your face




All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Taylor Swift's Everything Has Changed depict the beginning of a new romantic relationship. The main protagonist awakes with a new realization, that she found love. She sings of the intense feeling of butterflies in her stomach, and alludes to the speedy development of this new connection. She paints a picture of her strong-walled heart finally coming down to let someone in after an encounter in which he held the door for her. Swift expresses her desire to get to know her love interest better and describes her need to see him again, almost in disbelief that she's finally found someone with whom to share her life. The simple act of greeting him and looking into his green eyes was all it took for everything in her life to change.


Throughout the song, Swift repeats the phrase, "All I know is...," which emphasizes how new and fresh this relationship feels. She's comfortable with the idea that all she knows about this newfound love is his simple name and the events leading up to their encounter. But at the same time, she's scared to let anyone get too close to her heart. By repeating the desire to "know you better," she emphasizes how important taking things slowly is as they begin their journey of discovery.


The song, which also features British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, is an emotional and evocative ballad that has connected with many listeners around the world. It's a fitting tribute to the power of love and its ability to completely transform a person's life.

And all my walls stood tall, painted blue
And I'll take 'em down, take 'em down
And open up the door for you
And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies

Taking flight, making me feel right

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran]
I just wanna know you better
Know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better

This song will truly never go out of style. She is literally a mastermind. The story, the allure, the chords, the uncertainty, the simplicity and aesthetic. It's brilliant.
