It's a fairy tale with a realistic touch. In a world where divorce is rampant, this song was about a girl whose own parents' divorce made her take a second look at love. She had guarded her heart and yet one man changed her outlook about love. It's real because the song showcased the couple having problems such as bills to pay and figuring things out but the couple fought and still chose to be together. The most catchy line in the song is "I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter" and well it just shows how talented a lyricist Taylor is.
