“Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince” is the seventh track on Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album “Lover”.
The highly anticipated 2019 album “Lover” contains 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.
“Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince” might make Taylor sound like she’s singing her love stories. But it also has a certain political connotation. Listen to the song and read the lyrics analysis below.

The lyrics can be interpreted in two ways: from the point of view of a love story or from the point of view of an American patriot. Since there are so many songs about love on the album ‘Lover’, we are going to detail this song from his political POV.
Taylor Swift was born and raised in Tennessee, an area known for its patriotism towards the United States of America. The “American Glory,” which Taylor refers to in the song, says the country is one of the best and best nations in the world. Taylor admits that she loves her country and is more in love with it than when she was 16. But the heartbroken prince arrives, probably a reference to Donald Trump’s administration. Now she feels hopeless and frustrated for the future of her beloved homeland.
The song’s chorus reflects the societal norm that Taylor is a tough guy. She says what she thinks, supports gay rights and challenges stereotypes. These are not traits that are easy to instill in the face of a social media fan base of over 100 million. But those who challenged her did not last long in the game. Not that she took them out. But the truth itself ends up revealing itself and eliminates its enemies. She sparked some controversy over her political post on her Instagram page encouraging fans to vote for Hilary Clinton for president.
The second verse of “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince” is about her team who lost the election. The “bad guys” win and they celebrate. Taylor already feels nauseous and distressed. She is afraid for the future of this country and the generations to come. The reign of “boys” and “wise men” is unfortunately nowhere to be found.
The pre-choruses for this track highlight how Taylor wanted to see a positive change in the administration after Barack Obama’s presidency. But it wasn’t meant to be this time around. And Taylor might feel that the consequences of irrational administrators’ behavior is reflected in the heightened state of carnage the country has fallen into.
