Everything Has Changed is the fourteenth track and sixth single of Taylor's fourth album Red. It was released on October 22, 2012 and became a single on July 16, 2013. It features Ed Sheeran.

Meaning and Background

Taylor and Ed both had their management reach out to each other at the same time, as they both wanted to make a song together. It was written in Taylor's backyard.

The song focuses on the feeling of when you first meet someone and all of a sudden the way that the world looks to you changes. It's about how everything looks different to you because of this one person, because one new person came into your life.[1]

Trivia

  • This is Taylor's first collab with Ed Sheeran, the second being End Game.
  • The song was leaked four days before it's release.

Music Video

The music video was released on June 6, 2013. It's directed by Philip Andelman.

Storyline
The video starts with a girl waiting on the school bus. As she enters the bus, she sits next to a boy reading a comic book. At school, they spend a lot of time together: they decorate cookies, watch a movie of Paris, play princess and knight and eat together at the playground, the boy plays guitar for the girl and they do yoga while the others kids are playing soccer. They sneak out during class to look at a snake and build a tent. They also paint their faces, go to the park where the boy reads a book for the girl and dance in an empty gym. When they get out of school, they each run to their parents; the girl's mom is Taylor and the boy's dad is Ed. Taylor and Ed smile at each other before they take their kids home.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]
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 18 hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles and your smile
In the back of my mind, making me feel like

[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
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

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran]
'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello"
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
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

[Verse 2: Ed Sheeran & Taylor Swift]
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
The beautiful kind, making up for lost time'
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
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

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran]
'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello"
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
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

[Bridge: Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran]
Come back and tell me why
I'm feeling 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

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

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran]
'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello"
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
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

[Outro: Taylor Swift]
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
