Taylor Swift Snow On The Beach Lyrics Meaning Explained

“Snow On The Beach” has been hailed as one of Taylor Swift’s best songs off her latest album, “Midnights,” thus far.

The lyrics address the contradictions of falling in love.

The sweet, spirited song “Snow on the Beach,” the fourth single on Taylor Swift’s new album Midnights, is permeated by a bizarre rhythm.

The song’s dreamy, almost eerie quality is intentional because it captures a once-in-a-lifetime emotion, according to Swift, who described it as “that cataclysmic, fated moment where you realize someone feels exactly the same way that you feel at the same moment” in an Instagram video posted before the album’s release on October 21.

Swift stated that she was honored to reveal on October 7 that she would be collaborating with singer Lana Del Rey on the song because she has long been a fan.

Del Rey’s contribution to “Snow on the Beach” is understated—some might even say too understated—but her angelic voice helps to convey Swift’s mood:

  • “The song is about falling in love with someone at the same time as they’re falling in love with you,” Swift said. 
  • “…And you’re kind of looking around going, ‘Wait is this real? Is this a dream? Is this for real? Is this really happening?’
  • Kind of like it would be if you were to see snow falling on a beach.”

The lyrics to “Snow on the Beach” are purposefully ambiguous and open to interpretation, with the exception of the obvious reference to Janet Jackson in the line “I’m all for you like Janet.”

Even yet, it wouldn’t be wrong to believe that Swift, who has been dating actor Joe Alwyn for six years, is referring to her own “cataclysmic, fated moment.”

A few of the songs on Midnights are among many other songs she’s composed that make references to her concerns and aspirations for the stability of their relationship.

Lana Del Rey, an American singer, co-wrote the song The Snow on the beach.

Read the full lyrics to “Snow on the Beach” below.

[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]
One night, a few moons ago
I saw flecks of what could’ve been lights
But it might just have been you
Passing by unbeknownst to me
Life is emotionally abusive
And time can’t stop me quite like you did
And my flight was awful, thanks for asking
I’m unglued, thanks to you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
And it’s like snow at the beach
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, ah

[Verse 2: Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
This scene feels like what I once saw on a screen
I searched “aurora borealis green”
I’ve never seen someone lit from within
Blurring out my periphery
My smile is like I won a contest
And to hide that would be so dishonest
And it’s fine to fake it ’til you make it
‘Til you do, ’til it’s true

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
Now it’s like snow at the beach
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, ah

[Bridge: Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
I can’t speak, afraid to jinx it
I don’t even dare to wish it
But your eyes are flying saucers from another planet
Now I’m all for you like Janet
Can this be a real thing? Can it?

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift]
Are we falling like snow at the beach? (Snow at the beach)
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flying in a dream (Flying in a dream)
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me (You wanting me)
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow, ah
It’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around

[Outro: Taylor Swift]
Like snow on the beach
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
Like snow on the beach
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
