"Come Back, Be Here" Song Meaning

Today's Taylor Swift song is the meaning of "Come Back, Be Here" from her deluxe Target Red album.

Taylor tells Yahoo Music "There's a song I wrote with Dan Wilson called 'Come Back... Be Here,' which I wrote about falling for someone and then they have to go away for work.  They're traveling, you're traveling, and you're thinking about them, but you're wondering how it's gonna work when there's so much distance between you."

Who is it about?  Who lives far away from Taylor?

Walgreen's Meet and Greet

I thought about this long and hard. I thought it could be Jake Gyllenhaal because they had to travel during their romance and he was in London while they were dating, but I don't think he had to travel very soon in their relationship and Taylor lived in New York at the time.  Why would she say "You're in New York today" twice in the song?

This song is about Eddie Redmayne!  

Eddie Redmayne
Taylor met him when she was being considered for a role in Les Miserables in October 2011.  (BTW, I am very sad that she is not in that movie.  It is one of my favorite musicals, I know all the words and I am so excited for the movie production and I thought Taylor would have been perfect for the role of Eponine.  But either she turned it down because of her album, or they chose someone else.  I have a feeling she turned it down because of the album) But she had to say goodbye after they met.  "You said it in a simple way 4am, the second day/How strange that I don’t know you at all/I stumble through the long goodbye/One last kiss then you catch your flight/Right when I was just about to fall." She had to say goodbye to him just as she was falling for him.  Eddie also lives in London, "I guess you are in London today". It also mentions him being in New York and her being in New York with "taxi cabs and busy streets".  They were both traveling during this time.  She was finishing her Speak Now tour and he was promoting "My Week With Marilyn". Eddie was in New York for the premiere of "My Week With Marilyn" and Taylor was in New York Madison Square Gardens for her tour, but not at the same time.

There was just no time for them to get to know one another.  Too bad they were never in the same city and given a chance to date.
