She continued, "I found that to be particularly tragic because young people are the people who feel the worst effects of gun violence, and student loans and trying to figure out how to start their lives and how to pay their bills, and climate change, and are we going to war - all these horrific situations that we find ourselves facing right now."
Speaking about the powerful lyrics, songwriting partner, Joel Little, added: "Lyrically, that song has got so many gut punches in it - just really important lines, I feel. As that song was coming together and we were realising what it was saying, it was a very emotional aura."
Swift reportedly recorded the song while working on 2019 album Lover but decided to keep the project under wraps until the documentary is released.
"I did think that it would be better for it to come out at a time that it could maybe hopefully stoke some fires politically and maybe engage younger people to form their own views, break away from the pack, and not feel like they need to vote exactly the same way that people in their town are voting," the 30-year-old added.
The film boasts a stellar team with Emmy winner Lana Wilson - who helmed After Tiller - in the director's seat while film producer Morgan Neville makes the credits too.
Further details of the upcoming documentary come amid news that Swift was almost prohibited from performing her own music at the 2019 American Music Awards.
According to the singer, Big Machine Label Group's Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun wouldn't allow the songstress to play any of her old songs after Braun, who manages Justin Bieber and Kanye West, acquired the music empire earlier this year.
In response to the heartbreaking news, Swift appealed to fans for help "talk some sense into the men who are exercising tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she wrote" in a candid social media post.
"Scott Borchetta told my team that they'll allow me to use my music only if I do these things: If I agree to not re-record copycat versions of my songs next year (which is something I'm both legally allowed to do and looking forward to) and also told my team that I need to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun," she explained.
"I feel very strongly that sharing what is happening to me could change the awareness level for other artists and potentially help them avoid a similar fate. The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished," Swift continued.
"This is wrong. Neither of these men had a hand in the writing of those songs. They did nothing to create the relationship I have with my fans. So this is where I'm asking for your help."
The documentary will make its debut at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and will offer a "raw and emotionally revealing look" into the life of one of the most famous artists of our generation.
