Taylor Swift – It’s Nice To Have A Friend (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)


“It’s Nice To Have A Friend” is the seventeenth track from Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album ‘Lover’.

The highly anticipated 2019 album “Lover” features 18 tracks on the standard edition, including three singles “ME!” with Brendon Urie, “You Need to Calm Down” and the title track “Lover”. The new album is in stark contrast to Taylor’s previous album, “Reputation,” released in 2017, which focused on speaking out against enemies. At this time, however, Taylor Swift is in love, and this is reflected throughout the album.

The song tells the story of two friends from school, who fall in love and end up getting married. It’s a happy song all around with a different tune with a hymn. Listen to the song below.

The three verses of “It’s nice to have a friend” go through three stages in this couple’s affair. The first line is devoted to their innocent childhood friendships during school days. They would walk each other home, hold hands, play video games, and have sleepovers.

The second verse takes us to their teenage years, where they are more in love than ever. Sitting on the rooftops, watching the sky drown and long discussions. He summons all the courage to touch his hand. It’s not like they’ve never held their hands before, as shown in the first verse. But this time it’s very different. This time the touch sends signals down their spine.

The third verse is devoted to their marriage and their married life. Throwing rice on the floor is a tradition in wedding ceremonies in many cultures. Rice looks like prosperity. Taylor Swift continues to paint a perfect, comfortable and warm married life for this couple. It’s the perfect love story. Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran collaborated on a similarly themed song in “Everything Has Changed”.
