After Swift told fans that there’s a collection of three songs she refers to as “the teenage love triangle,” social media users began to speculate that “August” was from the perspective of a woman who had an affair with a man in a relationship.
“So much for summer love and saying ’us’ / ‘Cause you weren’t mine to lose,” she sings.
Swift told fans via YouTube: “These three songs explore a song triangle from all three people’s perspectives at different times in their lives.”
Many Twitter users believe that “August,” “Betty” and “Cardigan” are the three tracks Swift was referring to.
