"Dear John" es la quinta canción del tercer álbum de Taylor Swift, Speak Now. Swift escribió esta canción por su cuenta, como todas las canciones del álbum, excepto "If This Were A Movie", que ella coescribió con Martin Johnson, y supuestamente se trata de su compañero cantante, John Mayer. A pesar de que la canción nunca fue lanzada como sencillo, sí terminó en las listas de Billboard Hot 100 y Canadian Hot 100.

Antecedentes Editar

Swift supuestamente escribió "Dear John" sobre el cantante de rock John Mayer, con quien salió en diciembre de 2009 a febrero de 2010. En una entrevista con la revista Rolling Stone, Mayer dijo: "Nunca recibí un correo electrónico. Nunca recibí una llamada telefónica. Realmente me sorprendió con la guardia baja, y realmente me humilló en un momento en el que ya estaba vestida. Quiero decir, ¿cómo te sentirías si, en lo más bajo que hayas estado, alguien te haya pateado aún más?" Mayer también insultó a Swift como compositora, diciendo que era "composición de canciones baratas". Cuando se le preguntó a Swift sobre los rumores, ella los abatió, pero no exactamente diciendo que la canción no era sobre Mayer. "¡Qué presuntuoso! Nunca revelo sobre quiénes son mis canciones", dijo Swift en la edición de noviembre de 2012 de Glamour.

Recepción crítica Editar

El New York Times dijo que era "por lejos la pista más espectacular de Speak Now".[1]

Swift tocó la canción a lo largo del Speak Now World Tour.

Letra Editar

[Verse 1]
Long were the nights when
My days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps
Praying 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
Then go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game
But you changed the rules everyday
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
Well maybe it's me
And my blind optimism to blame
Or maybe it's you and your sick need
To give love and take it away
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors
Who don't understand
And I look back in regret how I ignored when they said
"Run as fast as you can"

[Chorus]
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
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

[Bridge]
You are an expert at sorry
And keeping the lines blurry
Never impressed by me acing your tests
All the girls that you've run dry have tired lifeless eyes
'Cause 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, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]
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

[Outro]
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
Wrote you a song, you shoulda' known
You shoulda' known
Don't you think I was too young
You shoulda' known
