Album: Frame By Frame (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Cassadee Pope penned this autobiographical banjo and acoustic tune with Nathan Chapman, who is Taylor Swift's regular producer. It tells the story of her parents' divorce.

    "I was a little too young and a little too dumb
    To ever think the day would come
    When Dad would drive away and take his love with him
    So I grew up fast in a whole new world
    Waved goodbye to that little girl I can see her now
    Innocent and seven I wish I had never turned 11."

    Pope explained: "As a kid, when you go through something like your parents' divorce, weird things go through your mind and you have no control."
