Taylor teased fans about her new song being released at midnight on Oct. 21 — and we’re so glad that it’s finally out! The track will be used during the credits in the British biopic, One Chance, about Britain’s Got Talent winner from 2007, Paul Potts. The film is being released on Oct. 25.

The airy, ’80s bubblegum-pop tune has Taylor’s quintessential sound!  However, she collaborated with fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, 29, to write the upbeat tune, who said it has a John Hughes’ movie vibe.

Jack tweeted:

Although these song lyrics apply to the film, describing when Paul became famous after being a lowly shop clerk, we think that Tay’s past romances also inspired the flirty lyrics!

Taylor Swift’s Lyrics To ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’

Check out the full lyrics here:

Hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground (oh, oh)
Only sound, only sound that you hear is “no”
You never saw it coming
Except when you started runnning
And now you come undone (I, I, I)

Seen you fall, seen you crawl on you knees (eh, eh)
Seen you lost in a crowd, seen you colors fade
Wish I could make it better
Someday you won’t remember,
This pain you thought would last forever and ever

There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

Just a shot, just a shot in the dark (oh, oh)
All you got, all you got are your shattered hopes
They never saw it coming
You hit the ground running
And now you’re on to something
I, I, I say

What a sight, what a sight when the light came on
Put me right, threw me right when you put them front
And in this perfect weather
It’s like we don’t remember
The rain we thought would last forever and ever

There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

There you stand, next to me
All at once, the rest is history
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction, fiction

I’ll be one of the many saying
Look at you now, look at you now, now
I’ll be one of the many saying
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud

I’ll be one of the many saying
Look at you now, look at you now, now
I’ll be one of the many saying
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud, proud

And when they call your name
And they put your picture in a frame
You know that I’ll be there time and again
‘Cause I you loved when

When you hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh
Only sound, only sound that you hear is “no”
Now in this perfect weather
It’s like we don’t remember
The rain we thought would last forever and ever

There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

There you stand, next to me
All at once, the rest is history
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction, fiction

We love this fresh, fun song from Taylor! Do YOU, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
