In this song Taylor Swift realizes that her wayward boyfriend is not sincere in his apologies and is a first-class liar. She explained to The Morning Call that this tune is an "angry, 'you know what, you're not sorry for anything you did' song. Someone can apologize and you know it's not sincere."
Swift explained to That's Country
the song's protagonist is based on an actual person. Said the singer: "It is about this guy who turned out to not be who I thought I was. He came across as prince charming. Well, it turned out prince charming had a lot of secrets that he didn't tell me about. And one by one, I would figure them out. I would find out who he really was. I wrote this when I was at the breaking point of, 'You know what? Don't even think that you can keep on hurting me.' It was to a point where I had to walk away."
A re-mixed version of this song featured in episode 198 of the TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which co-starred Taylor Swift. After being made available on iTunes, the re-mix sold in sufficient quantities to return the song to the Top 40 of the Hot 100.
