According to Songfacts, Today Was A Fairytale features boy-meets-girl lyrics utilizing a fairy tale metaphor in a similar way to Taylor's 2008 single Love Story .
Today was a fairytale, you were the prince
I used to be a damsel in distress
You took me by the hand, and you picked me up at six
Today was a fairytale, today was a fairytale
