“I found myself talking about government and the presidency and policy with my boyfriend, who supported me in speaking out,” Taylor wrote in her interview with the magazine.

“In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” Taylor wrote in the Instagram post supporting Bredesen.

“I didn’t want the defeat and hopelessness I felt for our country’s future to get the best of me. I didn’t want to weep. I wanted to have hope. Writing ‘Only the Young’ helped me push through that moment in my life and gave me the hope to keep fighting for what I believe is right,” explained to the magazine.

“You go to class, scared / Wondering where the best hiding spot would be / And the big bad man and his big bad clan / Their hands are stained with red,” Taylor sings on the track.
