Dear John (6:44)

Cover of Speak Now (Deluxe Edition)

From Speak Now (Deluxe Edition)

Taylor Swift explains the story behind “Dear John” on her official website:
“The song “Dear John” is sort of like the last email you would ever send to someone that you used to be in a relationship with. Usually people write this venting last email to someone and they say everything that they want to say to that person, and then they usually don’t send it. I guess by putting this song on the album I am pushing send.”

Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps praying the floor won't fall through again
And my mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine
