That might not say much, considering how Swift spent her 20s blowing up the planet with melodic confetti, but at least “Folklore” isn’t the predictable Nashville quarantined girl-and-guitar album it could have been. Instead, these Spartan pop ballads sound like they’ve been written entirely in Swift’s terms, artistically co-produced by Aaron Dessner (who does hygienic rock music at the National) and Jack Antonoff (who recently also helped Lana Del Rey make her best album for staying out of the way). Don’t let Bon Iver’s petty duet with Justin Vernon distract you either. The triumph of “Folklore” is not that Swift has suddenly become elegant and in tune. Having smashed the charts as completely as a fluorescent tidal wave, she’s finally making enough room in her music for her modest voice to sound like herself.

Review | If a Taylor Swift album drops in a pandemic, does it make a sound?

The freakiest thing about Taylor Swift’s never-freaky music is how politely it trespasses on your brain tissue. It doesn’t really matter where your head is at. With an automatic omnipresence – in restaurants, ride-shares, retail spaces and everywhere else we do our everyday things – her biggest songs literally change the world.

“Mirrorball” the sixth song on the album, follows the emotional brings relief to listeners with a happier tone. “Mirrorball” feels nostalgic like many folk songs, but has a soft, comforting sheen. If “Mirrorball” could be personified, it would probably be a high school dance in a teen movie.
Swift sings from the perspective of a disco ball that reflects on others. On the outside, she is confident and is exactly what people want, but on the inside she is constantly changing her image to suit those around her.

Taylor Swift

In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result, a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness. Picking up a pen was my way of escaping into fantasy, history, and memory. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve.

Mirrorball – Taylor Swift

[Verse 1]I want you to know
I’m a mirrorball
I’ll show you every version of yourself tonight
I’ll get you out on the floor
Shimmering beautiful
And when I break, it’s in a million pieces

[Chorus]Hush, when no one is around, my dear
You’ll find me on my tallest tiptoes
Spinning in my highest heels, love
Shining just for you
Hush, I know they said the end is near
But I’m still on my tallest tiptoes
Spinning in my highest heels, love
Shining just for you

[Verse 2]I want you to know
I’m a mirrorball
I can change everything about me to fit in
You are not like the regulars
The masquerade revelers
Drunk as they watch my shattered edges glisten

[Chorus]Hush, when no one is around, my dear
You’ll find me on my tallest tiptoes
Spinning in my highest heels, love
Shining just for you
Hush, I know they said the end is near
But I’m still on my tallest tiptoes
Spinning in my highest heels, love
Shining just for you

[Bridge]And they called off the circus, burned the disco down
When they sent home the horses and the rodeo clowns
I’m still on that tightrope
I’m still trying everything to get you laughing at me
And I’m still a believer, but I don’t know why
I’ve never been a natural, all I do is try, try, try
I’m still on that trapeze
I’m still trying everything to keep you looking at me

[Outro]Because I’m a mirrorball
I’m a mirrorball
And I’ll show you every version of yourself tonight
