Whilst this song finds Taylor promising to "Stay Stay Stay" with her current boyfriend, she still takes the opportunity to throw a few disses at her exes. "Before you I only dated self-indulgent takers," she sings, " who took all of their problems out on me." The song ends with Swift collapsing into a fit of giggles. The Pennsylvania native told Rolling Stone how Red showcases the wide range of emotions she has experienced in recent years. "I went through a few roller coasters," she said. "Trying to chronicle each step of the way was challenging, because you go to some really dark places with the lyrics. Then in the next track, you're talking about how amazing it is to meet somebody new."
Swift told MTV News how she transforms her emotions into songs. "When I'm writing a song, I'm so in that zone that it's really sort of a trance I go into," she explained, "and I'm just kind of thinking about what I would say to this person that I'm writing the song about if I could just say whatever I wanted to them right now; that's kind of where I go in my head. And then the next thing is, I edit the song for a couple of days in my head and make sure that every line is as tight as I want it to be."
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
