Taylor Swift has released the fourth single from her upcoming album reputation.

"Call It What You Want" is a slow-tempo, heartfelt romance, which fans believe is about Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

It was produced by Jack Antonoff and has delighted fans thanks to the lyrics which seem deeply personal.

Listen to the track and check out the lyrics below:

[Verse 1]

My castle crumbled overnight

I brought a knife to a gunfight

They took the crown but it's alright

All the liars are calling me one

Nobody's heard from me in months

I'm doing better than I ever was

[Chorus]

Cause my baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

[Verse 2]

All my flowers grew back as thorns

Windows boarded back up after the storm

He built a fire just to keep me warm

All the drama queens taking swings

All the jokers dressing up as kings

They fade to nothing when I look at him

And I know I make the same mistakes every time

Bridges burn, I never learn

At least I did one thing right, I did one thing right

I'm laughing with my lover

Making forts under covers

Trust him like a brother

Yeah you know I did one thing right

Starry eyes sparking up my darkest night

[Chorus]

Cause my baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

[Bridge]

I want to wear his initial on a chain around my neck

Chain round my neck

Not because he owns me

But 'cause he really knows me

I recall late November

Holding my breath, slowly I said "you don't need to save me

But would you run away with me?"

Yes

[Chorus]

My baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

So call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

[Ending]

Call it what you want, call it what you want

Call it what you want, call it what you want

Call it what you want, call it what you want

Call it what you want, call it what you want

Call it what you want yeah, call it what you want to

Swift's sixth album reputation is released on 10 November via Big Machine Records.
