10 of Taylor Swift’s Lyrics About Her Famous Exes

All her lovers! <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/taylor-swift/">Taylor Swift</a> is no stranger to penning brutally honest songs about love and heartbreak. In honor of <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/taylor-swift-lover-review-triumpant-album-is-deeply-personal/">her latest album Lover’s debut</a>, there is no better time than now to take a <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/scooter-braun-congratulates-taylor-swift-on-lover-after-drama/">look back at the lyrics</a> the Grammy winner has written about her famous exes. <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/pictures/taylor-swifts-lover-breaking-down-the-most-telling-lyrics/"> Breaking Down the Most Telling Lyrics on Taylor Swift's 'Lover' </a> Though Swift has <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/taylor-swift-regrets-putting-joe-jonas-on-blast-over-split/">since admitted her regret</a> calling out <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/joe-jonas/">Joe Jonas</a> on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2008 after their breakup, her song about the “Sucker” crooner lives on. She released “Better Than Revenge” in 2010, which includes direct digs at <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/camilla-belle/">Camilla Belle</a> — the actress Jonas began dating shortly after his split with Swift. “She’s not a saint and she’s not what you think / She’s an actress, whoa / She’s better known for the things that she does / On the mattress, whoa,” she sings. <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/pictures/taylor-swifts-song-lyrics-decoded-which-celebrity-is-she-singing-about-in-each-song-20141012/"> Celebrities Featured in Taylor Swift's Songs </a> Swift’s summer romance with <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/tom-hiddleston/">Tom Hiddleston</a> in 2016 seemingly provided inspiration for her song “Getaway Car” from 2017’s Reputation. The song details the story of a fling that was destined to end, as she sings: “I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed / We never had a shotgun shot in the dark / You were drivin’ the getaway car / We were flyin’ but we’d never get far.” The most blatant example from Swift’s catalog of music is “Dear John,” a track that has no fear in directly calling out <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/john-mayer/">John Mayer</a>. Swift, 29, and Mayer, 41, dated for three months and collaborated on the 2009 song “Half of My Heart.” Swift’s “Dear John” includes the 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.” <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/pictures/taylor-swift-through-the-years-from-nashville-to-world-tours/"> Taylor Swift Through the Years </a> Mayer told <a href="https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/john-mayer-taylor-swifts-dear-john-song-humiliated-me-107169/">Rolling Stone</a> in 2012 that he was “really humiliated” by the Pennsylvania native’s track. He eventually released “Paper Dolls,” a song that seemingly referenced their former relationship, in 2013. <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/pictures/everything-we-know-about-taylor-swifts-7th-album/">Swift’s Lover was released</a> on Friday, August 23.
