72 Taylor Swift Lyrics For Fall Captions You’ll Love All Too Well

Here’s to your November flush and your flannel cure.

Originally Published: 

Taylor Swift is to autumn what Mariah Carey is to Christmas: You can’t think of this particular time of the year without immediately singing one of her seasonal hits. And after the “Willow” singer’s love letter to fall made headlines back in 2021, I can’t think of a better time to point out all the Taylor Swift lyrics that are perfect for fall-inspired Instagram captions.

If you’re like the Grammy award-winner, and are thriving because, in her own words, it’s the season of:

Wearing tights for the first time in months and when the mornings are all chilly and you can see your breath and draw little pictures on foggy windows...

... not to mention all the “pumpkin flavored stuff” and “maroon/hunter green/mustard yellow color combos,” as Swift mentioned in her ode to fall on TikTok, then you’re probably posting so many pics of yourself in plaid, holding a PSL while surrounded by fall foliage on the ‘Gram. Even with a break in her tour schedule, Swift has jam-packed her fall with autumnal actives like attending Travis Kelce’s football games and spending time with her squad in the city. As a Swiftie, you’ve already got October plans yourself to attend the Eras Tour movie in theaters, and enter the 1989 (Taylor’s Version) era on Oct. 27. Those events are when a fall Taylor Swift quote is absolutely necessary.

Evermore is packed with more than a handful of tracks that could lend their words to your social media captions, two of which call out November specifically. And Red (Taylor's Version) is the soundtrack for cuffing season, traveling up north, and baking Swift’s chai cookie recipe at home. You could even gather up those lyrics from folklore and Midnights from the queen of cottagecore for every cardigan-wearing, late-night selfie. Here are 72 Taylor Swift lyrics from all her albums that are made for your fall photos on Instagram.
