It’s no secret that when Taylor Swift releases new music, fans love to spend hours decoding the lyrics and trying to pick out all the hidden messages. Well you guys, you don’t have to for her song “Cardigan” anymore because the songstress herself just lifted the veil and shared exactly what her latest single is about. From Easter eggs in the music video to the true meaning behind the song and everything in between, the 30-year-old didn’t hold back!

During a new Vevo Footnotes breakdown video, Taylor explained she wanted the “Cardigan” music video “to have a clever plot device that also served as a metaphor.”

“I view Folklore as wistful and full of escapism. Sad, beautiful, tragic. Like a photo album full of imagery, and all the stories behind that imagery,” she told Vevo. “I was inspired by the feeling of isolation and how that can be either freeing or terrifying.”

So who exactly inspired the song? Were there any hidden messages in the lyrics or visual? Did she share any other behind-the-scenes secrets from the making of the video?
