Taylor Swift asks for forgiveness from her ex-boyfriend in "Back to December" music video directed by Yoann Lemoine. The poor boy braves the cold weather and looks frustrated as he wanders through snowy landscapes. Despite staying in her cozy home, she is freezing along with him as snowflakes fall inside the house.
"So this is me swallowing my pride/ Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night/ And I'd go back to December all the time/ It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you/ Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine," she sings about how sorry she was for what she did to him.
"Back to December" is lifted from Taylor Swift's latest studio album "Speak Now" which is currently staying at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 and has been at the hot spot for six non-consecutive weeks. Rumor has it, the song is about Taylor Lautner who was briefly linked to her last year.
Swift herself has repeatedly said most of her songs are indeed inspired by her personal experience. When talking about this track, she said without giving any name, "This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him."
"I've never felt the need to apologize in a song before, but in the last two years I've experienced a lot, [including] a lot of different kinds of learning lessons," she further told MTV. "And sometimes you learn a lesson too late and at that point you need to apologize because you were careless."
