In a preview for the podcast, Taylor said: “I look back as my only breakout album. All the other albums have glimpses of different things, this was an album that I wrote specifically about a pure, absolute heartbreak, down to the heart. ”

Taylor is known for documenting her love life through music, her 2017 EP ‘Reputation’ is full of references to the beginning of her relationship with Joe Alwyn. But what songs did Taylor write about her ex-boyfriend Jake and when did they break up? We’ll see…

Which Taylor Swift songs are about Jake Gyllenhaal?

Taylor Swift’s album   ‘Red’ came over a year after her split with Jake and fans are pretty sure she channeled her pain into ‘Red’. Songs on ‘Red’ include ‘All Too Well’, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, ‘Treachorous’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’.

One of the lyrics to ‘All Too Well’, which is a great hint of her relationship with Jake, is: I left my scarf there at your sister’s house / And you still have it in your drawer even now. During their relationship, Taylor was photographed wearing a striped scarf as they walked arm in arm, laughing together.

And on ‘State of Grace’ she sings about “twin fire signs and four blue eyes,” which clearly indicates Jake, as they both have blue eyes and birthdays in mid-December.

If you are a fan of Taylor (like the La Verdad Noticias team ) you will know that he has described the title track ‘Red’ as the ‘hardest to write’. In an interview with Good Morning America Swift revealed that ‘Red’ was originally 10 minutes long, clearly she had a lot to say.

She also wrote ‘The Moment I Knew’ after spending her 21st birthday crying when Jake didn’t show up. The lyrics include: And it was like in slow motion / Standing there in my party dress / With red lipstick / With no one to impress.

When did Taylor Swift date Jake Gyllenhaal?

Taylor and Jake began dating in October 2010, but broke up at the beginning of the New Year. In that time, they were photographed numerous times and Jake even took Taylor to the UK while promoting his film Love and Other Drugs.

And on Thanksgiving, Taylor joined the Gyllenhaals at the home of Jake’s sister Maggie, who later described spending the holidays with the pop star as “great.” According to reports at the time, Jake was the one who called off the affair because he “wasn’t sorry.”
