20 Of Taylor Swift’s Best Songs: Decoded
“Forever And Always”
Legend has it that the infamous thirty-second phone call in which Joe Jonas broke up with Taylor happened on the same day her soon-to-be Grammy-winning album Fearless was sent to the Big Machine Records execs. Taylor quickly wrote and recorded a song that day for inclusion on the album, and that song is said to be “Forever And Always.” The lyrics include subtle nods to the Jonas Brother, like “I hold on to the night you looked me in the eye and told me you loved me” echoing their hit “When You Look Me In The Eyes,” and Taylor has said that the song is about a guy who left her for another girl. Joe left Taylor for Camilla Belle, who is the subject of Taylor’s song “Better Than Revenge.” A tangled web, we know, but it’s oh-so-delicious to unravel.
