It doesn't get much more inspirational than Taylor Swift's new single "Sweeter Than Fiction," which she wrote along with fun.'s Jack Antonoff (who happens to be dating Girls’ Lena Dunham) for the new film One Chance.
No, One Chance isn't the story of Taylor's dating strategy — zing! — it's the tale of real-life Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts, whose appearance on the competition show transformed him from a shy blue-collar worker to a mega-famous operatic singer practically overnight. In the film, he's portrayed by Tony winner James Corden.
The new single will play over the end credits, and Taylor and Jack's lyrics take the perspective of a longtime fan who believed in a performer even when no one else did:
Seen you fall, seen you crawl on your knees
Seen you lost in a crowd, seen your colors fade
Wish I could make it better
Someday you won't remember
This pain you thought would last forever and ever
There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, "I knew it all along"
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction
