TAYLOR SWIFT


Dear John Lyrics

Long were the nights
When the days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps,
Prayin' the floor won't fall through, again
My mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine

You paint me a blue sky and go back
And turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game
But you changed the rules every day
Wonderin which version of you
I might get on the phone, tonight,
Well I stopped pickin' up
And this song is to let you know why

Dear John,
I see it all now that you're gone.
Don't you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I shoulda known.

Well maybe it's me
And my blind optimism to blame
Maybe its you and your sick need
To give love then take it away
And you'll add my name
To your long list of traitors
Who don't understand
And I'll look back in regret
How I ignored when they said
Run as fast as you can

Dear John,
I see all it now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress

Cried the whole way home

Dear John,
I see it all now it was wrong
Don't you think nineteen's too young
To be played by your dark twisted games
When I loved you so
I shoulda known

You are an expert at sorry
And keeping lines blurry
And never impressed by me
Acing your tests
All the girls that you run dry
Have tired lifeless eyes
Cuz you burned them out
But I took your matches
Before fire could catch me
So don't look now
I'm shining like fireworks
Over your sad empty town

Oh woah oh

Dear John,
I see all it now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young
To be messed with the girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I see all it now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Wrote you a song
You should've known
You shoulda known
Don't you think I was too young
You shoulda known.

just because the song is about someone they already loved, is why people are acting pissed. In my opinion John took advantgage of a young girl.(he shouldve seen this coming, she writes about all exes)

Just watched The View and heard about your song Dear John to John Mayer. I am a male in love with another and he doesn't feel the same. Instead of crying about all the things wrong, I will just listen

Your name may be John Mayer but you definitely are not thee JOHN MAYER. I'll make it easier, when I saw you at night, you always brought a snack from across the parking lot. Don't fib to these people

I have an ex named Alex and it was the exact same way. He kissed me at homecoming then broke up with me. Everyone thought I was insane cuz I went back to him 3 times wanting to be loved and all I got was hurt. I know exactly how Taylor feels. Players suck!!!
