You’re On Your Own, Kid

Taylor Swift

Album Midnights

“You’re On Your Own Kid” is the fifth track from Taylor Swift’s tenth studio album “Midnights”, which was released on the 21st October 2022 via Republic Records. The synth-pop song was written and produced by Taylor Swift along with producer and writer Jack Antonoff.

The tracks tell a tale of lust and longing, friendship blurring the lines of love, growing up and still yearning for love from a childhood friend, but a lifelong crush. As the song progresses, listeners see Swift grow up, longing for love, only to realise that the only person she will always have is herself – hence the title “You’re On Your Own, Kid”. The song shows a darker side to Swift, a reoccuring theme throughout the “Midnights” album.

The lyric video was uploaded to Swift’s official YouTube channel on the 22nd October 2022. As of the 17th November 2022, the video had a total of 6.3 million views.
