Taylor Swift admits to a former boyfriend that she made a mistake. After a small talk during a meeting, she finally tells him that she's sorry for all she did wrong. She made the confession in a ballad pop/country song "Back to December" which was released on iTunes as part of countdown to her "Speak Now" album release.
"Your guard is up and I know why/ Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind," she sings. "You gave me roses, and I left them there to die/ So this is me swallowing my pride standing in front of you/ Saying I'm sorry for that night and I go back to December all the time."
In an interview before the song release, Swift indeed admitted the song is dedicated to someone whom she had done wrong. "The person I wrote this song about deserves this," she said. "This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him...This is a song full of words I would say to him."
"Speak Now" is going to be made available for purchase across the country on October 25. The next song to be released following "Back to December" is "Mean" (October 19).
