"Last Kiss" Song Meaning

Today's Taylor Swift song is "Last Kiss" from her Speak Now album.

This song tells the story of a great love and how the boy just left and she doesn't understand why.  How she never thought their last kiss would be their last kiss, "I never thought we'd have a last kiss/Never imagined we'd end like this."

Who is this song about?

The hint comes in the liner notes, FOREVER AND ALWAYS.  "Forever and Always" was the name of a song from Taylor's "Fearless" album and that song was about Joe Jonas.  "Last Kiss" is about Joe Jonas!

Taylor said on her website, "The song 'Last Kiss' is sort of like a letter to somebody. You say all of these desperate, hopeless feelings that you have after a breakup. Going through a breakup you feel all of these different things. You feel anger, and you feel confusion, and frustration. Then there is the absolute sadness. The sadness of losing this person, losing all the memories, and the hopes you had for the future. There are times when you have this moment of truth where you just admit to yourself that you miss all these things. When I was in one of those moments I wrote this song."

She treasured their love, was so excited for it, "I do recall now the smell of the rain/I ran off the plane/The beat of your heart/It jumps through your shirt/I can still feel your arms." She contrasts this with sitting "on the floor/Wearing your clothes/All that I know is/I don't know how to be something you miss/I never thought we'd have a last kiss/Never imagined we'd end like this/Your name, forever the name on my lips."  What she had with Joe Jonas was special, but he didn't treasure it like she did. She "never planned on you [Joe] changing your mind." He did change his mind and in the moment she wrote this song she missed him.  For the story of their breakup, check out "Forever and Always".

"Forever & Always" Song Meaning

Today's Taylor Swift song is the meaning of "Forever and Always" from her "Fearless" album.

Taylor told Rolling Stone magazine, "the two songs that were completely last minute were, on the first record, 'Should Have Said No,' and on the second album, 'Forever and Always.' Both of them had to do with something really, really dramatic and crazy happening to me and me needing to address it in the form of music."

Why did Taylor add "Fearless" last minute to her album and who was it about?

Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas
It is Joe Jonas.  He "broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18. ... I looked at the call log — it was like 27 seconds. That's got to be a record." (Taylor Swift told Ellen DeGeneres).

Taylor told People magazine, "I'd never had that happen to me before that way, with that abruptness. I thought to myself, "This needs to be said." It's a song about watching somebody completely fade away in a relationship and wondering what you did wrong and wondering why things have changed."

It just so happens that Joe met someone while filming his music video "Lovebug", Camilla Belle.

The secret message in the liner notes is "IF YOU PLAY THESE GAME WERE BOTH GOING TO LOSE."  Camilla and Joe broke up eventually and Taylor has moved on.

Taylor told MTV news she felt "like I owed it to my fans to be like, 'Look, it happened, you weren't crazy,' and address it, And I addressed it, and, you know, that's a chapter in my life that's closed now."
