Who are you song meaning

While Taylor Swift's 10-minute version of All Too Well got the most attention of her new Red re-recordings From the Vault, the singer is rightfully putting the spotlight on another track, I Bet You Think About Me, which didn't appear on the album originally. The song is full of cheeky jabs at an exseemingly Jake Gyllenhaal, the subject of All Too Well, who Swift dated for three months in 2010. On Sunday, Swift announced she was releasing a music video for the track on Monday morning.

In the song itself, Gyllenhaal gets some pretty overt lyrical shoutouts. Lines like You grew up in a silver-spoon gated community / Glamorous, shiny, bright Beverly Hills (Gyllenhaal was born into an industry family; his father is director Stephen Gyllenhaal) and I bet you think about me when you're out/At your cool indie music concerts every week take aim at Gyllenhaal's lifestyle. (Swift referenced Gyllenhaal's music taste in We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, another track believed to be about him, too: I'm really gonna miss you picking fights /And me falling for it, screaming that I'm right /And you would hide away and find your peace of mind /With some indie record that's much cooler than mine.)

Swifties saw the song as a clear Gyllenhaal diss track, and they had plenty of jokes to make about it when the song came out Friday:

Swift spoke in 2011 about the track's meaning. Billboard pointed out that radio station Country 102.5 shared an audio clip of Swift talking about creating I Bet You Think About Me to celebrate Red's re-release.

Swift said of the track, This is a song I wrote with Lori McKenna, who's one of my favorite singer-songwriters ever. I'd always wanted to work with her...I wrote this with her at her house when I was playing Foxboro [Gillette Stadium] on the Speak Now Tour. We wanted this song to be like a comedic, tongue-in-cheek, funny, not caring what anyone thinks about you sort of breakup song because there are a lot of different types of heartbreak songs on Redsome of them are very sincere, some of them very stoic and heartbreaking and sadwe wanted this to be the moment where you're like, I don't care about anything. We wanted to kind of make people laugh with it, and we wanted it to be sort of a drinking song. I think that that's what it ended up being.

Verse 1: Taylor Swift



Verse 2: Taylor Swift
Well, I tried to fit in with your upper-crust circles
Yeah, they let me sit in back when we were in love
Oh, they sit around talkin' about the meaning of life
And the book that just saved 'em that I hadn't heard of

Chorus: Taylor Swift & Chris Stapleton
But now that we're done and it's over
I bet you couldn't believe
When you realized I'm harder to forget than I was to leave
And I bet you think about me

Verse 3: Taylor Swift
You grew up in a silver-spoon gated community
Glamorous, shiny, bright Beverly Hills
I was raised on a farm, no, it wasn't a mansion
Just livin' room dancin' and kitchen table bills

Verse 4: Taylor Swift & Chris Stapleton
But you know what they say, you can't help who you fall for
And you and I fell like an early spring snow
But reality crept in, you said we're too different
You laughed at my dreams, rolled your eyes at my jokes

Chorus: Taylor Swift & Chris Stapleton
Mr. Superior Thinkin'
Do you have all the space that you need?
I don't have to be your shrink to know that you'll never be happy
And I bet you think about me

Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift and Chris Stapleton
I bet you think about me, yes
I bet you think about me

Bridge: Taylor Swift & Chris Stapleton
Oh, block it all out
The voices so loud, sayin'
"Why did you let her go?"
Does it make you feel sad
That the love that you're lookin' for
Is the love that you had?

Verse 5: Taylor Swift
Now you're out in the world, searchin' for your soul
Scared not to be hip, scared to get old
Chasing make-believe status, last time you felt free
Was when none of that shit mattered 'cause you were with me

Chorus: Taylor Swift & Chris Stapleton
But now that we're done and it's over
I bet it's hard to believe
But it turned out I'm harder to forget than I was to leave
And, yeah, I bet you think about me

Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift and Chris Stapleton
I bet you think about me, yes
I bet you think about me

Outro: Taylor Swift and Chris Stapleton
I bet you think about me when you're out
At your cool indie music concerts every week
I bet you think about me in your house
With your organic shoes and your million-dollar couch
I bet you think about me when you say
"Oh my god, she's insane, she wrote a song about me"
I bet you think about me
