They say you bought a bunch of land somewhere
Chose the Rose Garden over Madison Square
And it took some time, but I understand it now
Here, Taylor uses two places that both emphasize the word “Garden” in their name, while they’re complete opposites.
A rose garden describes a peaceful setting, while Madison Square Garden describes a chaotic setting, as that arena is home to the New York Knicks, and has also been home to some of the most memorable concerts in music history and boxing.
