Does Taylor Swift Call Out John Mayer in New Song?
Blogs are abuzz that Taylor Swift is targeting serial dater John Mayer on a new song, "Dear John," from her forthcoming album, Speak Now.
Yahoo!'s Chris Willman first pointed out that Swift, 20 -- who was romantically linked to Mayer, 33, last year while collaborating on his song, "Half of My Heart" -- has penned the following lyrics:
"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.
Though Swift hasn't stated whether the song is about Mayer. she told Yahoo's Willman, her lyrics "are all made very clear. 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."
