Taylor Swift Pens Song About John Mayer
By PopEater Staff Posted Oct 19th 2010 07:40AM
Taylor Swift's latest album is shaping up to be an open book about her love life. First she penned a song about 'Twilight' hunk Taylor Lautner. Now, she's reportedly taking aim at John Mayer, which confirms rumors that the two were romantically involved in 2009 while collaborating on 'Half of My Heart,' a track from his last album. Based on lyrics from Swift's new song 'Dear John,' off her forthcoming 'Speak Now,' Mayer broke her heart.
The chorus of the song reveals the pair's romance ended badly:
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I should've known.
It was wrong
Don't you think nineteen's too young
To be played
By your dark, twisted games
When I loved you so.
My mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine
You'll add my name to your long list of traitors
Who don't understand
And I'll look back in regret
I ignored what they said 'Run as fast as you can."
According to Access Hollywood, Swift said her songs are not difficult to interpret.
"They're all made very clear," she said. "Every single song is like a road map to what that relationship stood for, with little markers that maybe everyone won't know, but there are things that were little nuances of the relationship, little hints. And every single song is like that. Everyone will know, so I don't really have to send out e-mails on this one."
