"You Are In Love" is the second bonus track from Taylor Swift's fifth studio album , 1989. The song is written about her friends Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff's relationship. When she talked to Jack Antonoff about the song in an interview with him, she said: "Basically, this song was a track that you Jack Antonoff sent me and it was the most beautiful, poignant, simple track I've ever received and I wrote it really quickly, I remember writing it really fast, 'cause I just remember thinking it sounded so much like the sound of like, actual love. True love. Like through thick and thin, sickness and health love."

She also talked about the song in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, where she said: "I wrote it with my friend Jack Antonoff who's dating my friend Lena, and Jack sent me this track to this song, it was just an instrumental track he was working on and immediately I knew what this song needed to be, and I wrote it as kind of a commentary on what their relationship has been like."

Lyrics

One look, dark room
Meant just for you
Time moved too fast, you play it back

Buttons on a coat
Lighthearted joke
No proof, not much, but you saw enough

Small talk, he drives
Coffee at midnight
Moonlight reflects the chain on your neck

He says "look up"
And your shoulders brush
No proof, one touch and you felt enough

You can hear it in the silence, the silence
You can feel it on the way home, way home
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love, true love
You are in love

Morning, his place
Burnt toast, Sunday
You keep his shirt, he keeps his word

For once, you let go
Of your fears and your ghosts
One step, not much, but it said enough

You kiss on sidewalks
You fight and you talk
One night he wakes, strange look on his face

Pauses, then says, "you're my best friend"
And you knew what it was
He is in love

You can hear it in the silence, the silence
You can feel it on the way home, way home
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love, true love

So it goes
You two are dancing in a snowglobe round and round
And he keeps a picture of you
In his office downtown

And you understand now why
They lost their minds, and fought the wars
And why I've spent my whole life
Trying to put it into words

'Cause you can hear it in the silence
You can feel it on the way home
You can see it with the lights out
You are in love, true love

You are in love
You can hear it in the silence, the silence
You can feel it on the way home, way home
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love, true love

You can hear it in the silence, the silence
You can feel it on the way home, way home
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love, true love

You are in love
