Background[]

Swift announced that the fourth track on Midnights would be titled "Snow On The Beach" on October 7, 2022, as episode thirteen out of thirteen on Midnights Mayhem with Me.[1]

On October 11, 2022, Swift explained the inspiration behind the song through a video uploaded to Instagram:[2]

"Snow On the Beach", featuring Lana Del Rey, is track 4 on Midnights, and I can not get through that sentence without grinning because I am such a massive fan of Lana Del Rey, more on that later. The song is about falling in love with someone at the same time as they're falling in love with you, in this sort of in this cataclysmic, faded moment where you realize someone feels exactly the same way that you feel, at the same moment, and you're kind of looking around going, "Wait, is this real? Is this a dream? Is this for real? Is it really happening?" Kinda like it would be if you were to see snow falling on a beach. And Lana Del Rey is, in my opinion, one of the best musical artists ever, the fact that I get to exist at the same time as her is an honor and a privilege, and the fact that she would be so generous as to collaborate with us on this song is something I'm gonna be grateful for life. Absolutely love her and I really hope you love this song as much as I do.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]
One night, a few moons ago
I saw flecks of what could've been lights
But it might just have been you
Passing by unbeknownst to me
Life is emotionally abusive
And time can't stop me quite like you did
And my flight was awful, thanks for asking
I'm unglued, thanks to you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift]
And it's like snow at the beach
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flyin' in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it's coming down
No sound, it's all around

[Post-Chorus: Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, uh-huh, uh-huh, ah

[Verse 2: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift]
This scene feels like what I once saw on a screen
I searched aurora borealis green
I've never seen someone lit from within
Blurring out my periphery
My smile is like I won a contest
And to hide, that would be so dishonest
And it's fine to fake it till you make it
Till you do, till it's true

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift]
And now it's like snow at the beach
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it's coming down
No sound, it's all around

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift]
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, uh-huh, uh-huh, ah

[Bridge: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift]
I (I) can't (Can't) speak, afraid to jinx it
I (I) don't (Don't) even dare to wish it
But your eyes are flyin' saucers from another planet
Now I'm all for you like Janet
Can this be a real thing? Can it?

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift]
Are we falling like snow at the beach? (Snow at the beach)
Weird, but fucking beautiful
Flying in a dream (Flying in a dream)
Stars by the pocket full
You wanting me (You wanting me)
Tonight feels impossible
But it's comin' down
No sound, it's all around

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow, uh-huh
But it's comin' down
No sound, it's all around

[Outro: Taylor Swift]
Like snow on the beach
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
Like snow on the beach
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)
(It's coming down, it's coming down)

I'm unglued, thanks to you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift & Lana Del Rey]
And it's like snow at the beach
Weird, but it was beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it's coming down
No sound, it's all around

[Post-Chorus: Lana Del Rey & Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey]
Like snow on the beach
