yep i know "The differences (between the two tracks) are subtle — 'Vermilion, Pt. 1' is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation and the neurosis," says Taylor. "'Part 2' is the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it." Both songs are said to be about lost or unrequited love from a possibly suicidal person's perspective.This song is actually written from the point of view of a stalker. While he says "she" a lot, it's actually about him.
