American pop star Taylor Swift recently released a re-recorded version of her 2012 hit album 'Red,' 'All Too Well.' While the fans are delighted to listen to the elongated version of the previously released song, it is making headlines for a separate reason: her break up with Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal.
The song, which tells the tale of a 21-year-old girl's three-month-long relationship with a man who eventually ends up breaking her heart, is being widely speculated as the love story between Swift and Gyllenhaal.
Taylor Swift penned her album ‘Red’ in 2012 after a three-month relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal which came to an end at the start of 2011 when she was 21 and he was 30.
After an extended version of the track was released, netizens seem to believe that some of the lyrics in the track 'All Too Well' refer to her ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal. There were memes and amusing reactions as the mention of the lyrics surfaced.
One of the lyrics on ‘All Too Well’ which is a massive hint at her relationship with Gyllenhaal is: "Left my scarf there at your sister’s house / And you still got it in you drawer even now"
During their relationship Swift was pictured wearing a striped scarf as they walked along arm in arm, laughing together.
Another lyric on the song which points towards the reason for their break up is: “And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes / I'll get older but your lovers stay my age / But I'm in a new hell every time you double-cross my mind / You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine / And that made me want to die.”
The lyrics clearly indicate the age gap between the two and hints it as a potential reason for their break up.
