Swift was reportedly so moved by the film that she wrote the song just for the occasion — alongside fun. frontman Jack Antanoff, who claims a writing credit on the track. 

Now, a snippet of the song has surfaced online, which reveals it to be a crisp, bouncy pop number along the lines of “The Story Of Us” or “Sparks Fly” with a catchy melody (“Your eyes are brighter than distance / This love is sweeter than fiction”) and typically wistful lyrics.
