Taylor Swift has published a new version of “All Too Well“which lasts ten minutes and is part of”Red (Taylor’s Version) ” which just came out today.
It’s since the song was first released in 2012 that fans think it talks about the end of the story with Jake Gyllenhaal and the new words seem to better explain how things had ended between them.
The singer and the actor had been dating for three months at the end of 2010 and Tay Tay had written “All Too Well” during rehearsals for the Speak Now tour in January 2011.

In a new verse, the artist sings “the hell“in which she was after the breakup and seems to remember that Jake would have left her because of the age difference:
“They say all’s well that ends well but I’m in a new hell / Every time you double cross my mind / You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine / And that made me want to die“.
The translation sounds like this: “They say it’s alright what ends well but I’m in a new hell / Whenever you cross my mind / You said if we were closer in age, maybe it would be fine / And that made me want to die“.
Jake Gyllenhaal turns 41 on December 19, while Taylor Swift will celebrate 32 on December 13: they therefore have nine years of difference. When they dated, they were 29 and 20 years old, respectively.
In another verse, the singer seems to take a dig: “And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes / I’ll get older but your lovers stay my age“.”I’ve never been good at telling jokes, but the joke goes like this / I’m getting old but your mistresses are still my age“.
Currently the actor is engaged to model Jeanne Cadieu who is 25 years old , or 15 less than him.
