Taylor Swift’s ‘Dear John’ for John Mayer

October 20, 2010

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift often writes songs about her love life and famously blasted her ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, in her hit single “Forever and Always”.

In her upcoming album “Speak Now”, there’s a song called “Dear John” and many suspect she wrote the song for John Mayer. The lyrics completely point in the direction of John Mayer. “Don’t you think I was too young To be messed with The girl in the dress Cried the whole way home.” “It was wrong Don’t you think nineteen’s too young To be played By your dark, twisted games When I loved you so.”

When asked by people magazine whether the song about Mayer, she said “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, A lot of times they don’t push send.” Swift continued “This was a tough one to write, and I guess putting it on the album was pushing send.”

Swift spent a lot of time with Mayer back in 2009 as they collaborated on his song “Half of My Heart” for his last album, “Battle Studies”, which sparked rumours that they were dating.

Yahoo’s Chris Willman reports that Swift, herself, recently told him that her songs aren’t hard to interpret. “They’re all made very clear,” Swift told him. “Every single song is like a roadmap 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 emails on this one.”

Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated album, “Speak Now”, will be released on October 25th, it contains 14 tracks, all written solely by Taylor, who co-produced the project with Nathan Chapman.

    I’m quite disappointed that Taylor has to write songs about her ex-boyfriends. I personally believe that relationship issues should be kept in a more private side even if its impossible when she is a celebrity.
