Based on the Songs About Him, John Mayer is the Next of Taylor’s Exes to Get in Trouble.
Taylor Swift, like the rest of us, has had her share of heartbreak.
When Taylor is upset, however, she transforms her emotions into Grammy-winning albums.
Many fans are focusing their attention on one of her most contentious relationship choices: John Mayer, as they wonder which of her albums she will re-record next.
Taylor and John were rumored to have dated in 2009 and 2010, when she was 19 and he was 32.
Taylor’s 2010 album “Speak Now” includes songs rumored to be about John, but how many are there? And what was the timeline of John and Taylor’s rumored relationship?
“Dear John,” a six-minute and forty-second song with lyrics like “Dear John, 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,” is the most obvious song that references Taylor and John’s ill-fated relationship.
Taylor sings about a toxic relationship in which she was manipulated emotionally.
“Don’t you think 19’s too young to be played by Your dark twisted games when I loved you so?” asks John Mayer, who is a music industry veteran and over twelve years older than Taylor.
“The Story of Us” and “Superman” from the Deluxe Edition are two other songs on “Speak Now” that are rumored to be about John Mayer.
Taylor describes an awkward moment after a breakup when she and her ex run into each other and neither of them wants to speak to the other, despite the fact that there are many words left unsaid in “The Story of Us.”
Taylor and John were seated close together at the 2010 CMT Awards, according to the liner notes from “The Story of Us.”
“This is looking like a competition of who can act like they care less,” one lyric laments, “but I liked it better when you were on my side.”
Despite the fact that “Superman” wasn’t included on the regular album, the Deluxe Edition of “Speak Now” includes this song about Taylor falling for someone who always seems to vanish — or, as she sings, “I watched Superman fly away You’ve got a busy day today Go save the world I’ll be…”
