Is Taylor Swift's 'Dear John' about John Mayer?
Mark Twain may have waited 100 years to publish his autobiography in the hopes of avoiding any hurt feelings. Taylor Swift, however, admits that most of the songs on her new album were inspired her own relationship ups and downs.
Speculation is running high that one song in particular, "Dear John," is about John Mayer -- 33-year-old singer, ex-Twitter addict, Jennifer Aniston/Jessica Simpson dumper, sometime Swift collaborator and rumored erstwhile boyfriend of the now 20-year-old. The lyrics (read them all after the jump) include some blunt questions -- "Don't you think I was too young/To be messed with" and "Don't you think nineteen's too young/To be played/By your dark, twisted games." -- that may be of particular interest to Mayer and his string of exes.
When Swift was asked an equally blunt question -- is the song about Mayer? -- by People magazine, she avoided a direct answer.
"A lot of times when people's relationships end, they write an e-mail to that person and say everything that they wish they would have said," Swift told People. "A lot of times they don't push send. This was a tough one to write and I guess putting it on the album was pushing send."
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
