The track, “Sweeter than Fiction” sounds like it’s straight out of the ’80s with its synth-heavy beats and Swift’s radio friendly vocals that tell a tale of triumph that recalls, in part, the storyline of “Mean.”
“I’ve seen you fall, seen you crawl on your knees . . . wish I could make it better/ Some day you won’t remember/ This pain you thought would last forever and ever,” she sings.
