Songfacts®:

  • Taylor debuted this track from her deluxe edition of Speak Now during a special solo acoustic segment at her September 24, 2011 concert in Kansas City. She explained before performing it, "This is about, well, a guy, as usual. This was a guy that I was sort of enamored with. This song got its title by something that I just said randomly in conversation. [When] he walked out of the room, I turned to one of my friends and said, 'It's like watching Superman fly away.'"
