Taylor Swift’s full-version of her new single “I Knew You Were Trouble,” has gone viral on the Internet after it was released on iTunes at midnight. It looks like ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal takes another shot in the kisser for doing her wrong.
She might as well dedicate her entire upcoming album “Red” to him, or at least give him a co-writing credit.
Swift previewed the third single from the album yesterday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” It’s another broken heart song like her two previous releases from the album. Here are the opening lyrics:
“Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights you got me alone
You found me you found me, you found me
I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me without me, without me
And he’s long gone when he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me”
Her latest song is about “kind of being frustrated with yourself because you have your heart broken and you knew when you first saw that person you saw all these red flags and you just went for it anyway,” she said in a video introduction on GMA.
“So shame on me,” she added.
Swift has written acerbic break up songs about ex-boyfriends Joe Jonas and John Mayer, but Gyllenhaal seems to be the inspiration of at least three new songs on her album.
Her latest is one of her favorites on the album “because it sounds just as chaotic as it was when I wrote it,” she said.
Swift and Gyllenhaal dated for three-months. He ended the relationship in 2010, saying the country star, 10 years his junior, was too young for him. But they got back together again in January and February of this year before breaking up for good.
She’s since moved on and is dating Conor Kennedy, the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
The first song off the album, “We’re Never Ever Getting Back Together,” was clearly pegged to the 31-year-old actor. The second song, titled “Red” like the album, likened her heartbreak to driving a Maserati down a dead-end street.
He must have really done her wrong. Her album will debut Oct. 22. Check out her new song below and click here to follow TheImproper on Twitter for more music updates.
