Shawn drew inspiration to rewrite song from girlfriend
Shawn joins in after the first chorus with his love letter which is perhaps an inspiration by Camila Cabello his girlfriend. In the remix, he sings, “We can light a bunch of candles and dance around the kitchen, baby. We’ll sit on the stoop. I’ll sing love songs to you when we’re 80.”
Both Swift and Shawn sing the chorus together with their voices intertwined. Shawn makes another solo appearance in the song with his lyrics. He is so poetic that he likens his commitment for his lover to the sinking with the Titanic.
Shawn posted on twitter thanking Swift for allowing him to rewrite the song. Swift wrote the song with her boyfriend in mind and now Shawn has rewritten it drawing inspiration from his lover.
