You’ll always be my biggest ‘what if’.

Taylor Swift performing “Tell Me Why” on 09/08/13 in Minneapolis, MN for the Red Tour.

I’d been talking to a guy I’ve never ‘officially’ dated. Sometimes it’s the hardest thing when you have all these dreams of dating them, and you’re getting close, but it doesn’t work out. He would say things that would make me go, ‘Did you just say that?’ It bothered me so much because he would say one thing and do another, do one thing and say another.  Because he didn’t know what he wanted, he would just play all these mind games. So I went over to write with Liz and was just ranting and raving about how this guy is such a flake and such a jerk sometimes, and so cool other times.  I was like, ‘Liz, I don’t know what’s up with this guy!’ So I just started playing the beginning, ‘I took a chance, I took a shot. And you might think I’m bulletproof, but I’m not.’

And if we ever meet again,
then I’ll have so much more to say.

You can erase someone from your mind, getting them out of your heart is another story.

Tell Me Why
  • Tell Me Why
  • Taylor Swift
  • Red Tour Acoustic Songs

"It’s a song about how relationships can really get complicated when one person kind of has the upper hand and it’s like this constant feeling like “why? Tell me why you’re acting like this”. This song from an album that I released when I was 18, it’s of an album called Fearless."

And after all this time you replaced me like I was nothing.
