85 Taylor Swift Midnights Lyrics For Haunting Instagram Captions

Dear reader, these lines are lost in the labyrinth of my mind.

Taylor Swift’s 10th album Midnights is finally here, and “Dear Reader,” please check on your favorite Swiftie, because they’re all currently in shambles. She had everyone up all night awaiting a special 3 a.m. surprise, which turned out to be seven more bonus songs — because Swift’s pen never tires. After months of piecing together this “mastermind’s” clues, all these new lyrics are raising even more easter eggs to mull over in the middle of the night. We know you’ve had Midnights on repeat since the middle of the night, so we did the work for you so you can take a nap. Check out these 85 Taylor Swift Midnights lyrics to use for haunting captions that are so relatable.

Like any other classic Swift record, Midnights invites us into the most intimate thoughts in her diary, but somehow, it sounds like we’re reading our own at the same time. The moody, boppy album is everything we love from Taylor wrapped into one perfect collection of stories; The joyous romance from Lover, serpent-tongue karmic promises from Reputation, irresistible dance beats from 1989, and the life lessons we loved in Folklore and Evermore. This fall, you may be falling in love to the tune of “Snow On The Beach (Featuring Lana Del Rey),” or you and your besties might be “dressin’ for revenge” because you’re in your “Vigilante Sh*t” eras. You may be suffering a series of sleepless nights, tossing, turning, and dancing to anthems like “Anti-Hero,” or finding your light in the middle of the night because you know that when you walk into a room, you can “still make the whole place shimmer.”

Whether she’s writing with her sacred fountain, quill, or glitter pens, Swift’s specialty is weaving poetic lyrics together. She “laid the groundwork, and then, just like clockwork,” Taylor’s throwing shade, lost in lust, and making sense of growing up, and these enchanting one-liners from the new Midnights album will keep you up at night. They’ll come in handy for captioning your dim-lit nighttime pics or all the spooky fall moments you want to post on the ‘Gram.

It’s safe to say that these Taylor Swift lyrics will be “lost in the labyrinth of my mind” for many nights to come. Whichever new musical masterpiece off of Midnights describes where you’re at in life right now — in a scary-accurate way — these Midnights lyrics cut like a knife for haunting Instagram captions this Taylor season.
