Anonymous #2: re: Season 8 + Lover. Hear me out. If this is going where we think it’s going then ‘Cruel Summer’ is the Carrie/Yevgeny anthem. “I don’t wanna keep secrets just to keep you.” “I snuck in through the garden gate every night that summer just to seal my fate.”

I love this debate and I fully endorse continuing this conversation for the next seven weeks. 

But, yeah, in some respects Carrie is always gonna be Reputation-era Taylor. I mean, duh. However!!! I am getting some season eight Carrie vibes from “Daylight.” That’s probably in part because it’s the last song on Lover and spoken-word endings got me feeling things, but the lyrics, y’all…

My love was as cruel as the cities I lived in
Everyone looked worse in the light
There are so many lines that I’ve crossed, unforgiven
I’ll tell you truth, but never, “Goodbye”

and

Maybe you ran with the wolves and refused to settle down
Maybe I’ve stormed out of every single room in this town
Threw out our cloaks and our daggers because it’s morning now
It’s brighter now, now

and 

I don’t wanna look at anything else now that I saw you
(I can never look away)
I don’t wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you
(Things will never be the same)
I’ve been sleepin’ so long in a twenty-year dark night
(Now I’m wide awake)
And now I see daylight (daylight)
I only see daylight (daylight)

 (“twenty-year dark night” …. it’s been 20 years since 9/11)

and of course

“I wanna be defined by the things that I love
Not the things I hate
Not the things I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
The things that haunt me in the middle of the night, I
I just think that you are what you love”
