We all know Taylor Swift LOVES to write about her ex men and now it's reportedly been confirmed that one of the singer's most heartfelt ballads was inspired by her ill-fated relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.
'All Too Well' appears on Taylor's new album Red alongside the hit single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' which is also widely believed to be about Jake. A source has now confirmed to US Weekly that the ballad contains many telling references to Taylor's time with older man Jake.
The lyric "Left my scarf there at your sister's house / And you still got it in your drawer," apparently is a big clue as to the song's identity, referring to Jake's famous sis Maggie Gyllenhaal. Taylor was photographed wearing a scarf to a 2010 Thanksgiving dinner at Maggie's home in Brooklyn, just weeks before the pair split, apparently by phone call- ouch!
The singer has already spoken out on the traumatic writing process she went through for the song, telling Good Morning America:
"All Too Well was the hardest to write because it took me a long time to filter through everything I wanted to say,"
"It started out being a 10-minute song, which you can't put on an album. I had to filter it down to a story that could work in the form of a song."
Sources close to Jake have suggested that he felt the age difference between him and the US singer was too big and wasn't happy about the attention they were gathering with their high profile pairing.
With friends of the singer now confirming that Taylor has been enjoying dates with One Direction's Harry Styles, we wonder if she'll soon be writing a tune about the curly haired lothario?
