Taylor apologizes in this song about the way she messed up a relationship with a former boyfriend, who now finds it hard to trust her. According to the Back To December Songfacts, the song is dedicated to an actual person to whom Taylor feels she had done wrong. It is the first time she has apologized to someone in a song. It’s rumored to be about Taylor Lautner.

Taylor Swift also explains the story behind “Back To December” on her official website:

“Back to December” addresses a first for me, in that I’ve never apologized to someone in a song before. In the good, or bad, or the apology, the person I wrote the song for deserves this. This is about somebody who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him, so these are the words that I would say to him — that he deserves to hear.”
