Taylor Swift Fans were forever changed when she released the song “All Too Well” on her album Red in 2012. From the moment the five-minute-plus song came out, fans were immediately transported into the story of one of Taylor's past romances. As with most of Taylor's songs, “All Too Well” was based on a true story from her life, but the specifics in the lyrics took things to a level that no other Taylor song had ever achieved before.

“Everything is too good” [was difficult to write emotionally] Because it took me a long time to filter out everything that I wanted to put in the song without it being a 10-minute song that you can't put on an album,” Taylor explained in 2012. “I wanted one Story that can work in the form of a song and I called my co-writer Liz Rose and said, 'Come over here, we need to filter this out.' And it took me a really long time to understand it.”

The story of “All Too Well”

Taylor released “All Too Well” for the first time on her album Red in 2012 and it was an instant fan favorite. “It was a day where I was like a broken person going into rehearsal and just feeling terrible about what was going on in my personal life,” Taylor continued Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Podcast in 2020. “I just started playing four chords over and over again and the band started joining in. People just started playing along, I think they could tell I was really going through this. I just started singing, riffing and lipping out to this song that was basically called “All Too Well.” It was literally just that song, but it probably had seven extra verses and the F-word.”

This wasn't the first time it was publicly revealed that “All Too Well” was originally much longer than the 5 minutes and 29 seconds fans heard Red. For years, Swifties begged Taylor to release the full 10-minute version, and in 2021 they finally got their wish. In late 2020, Taylor began re-recording her first six albums to secure the rights to the songs. In addition to re-recording all of the original songs, Taylor also included previously unreleased songs that didn't make it onto the albums the first time around. When she fell Red (Taylor's version) in November 2021, which included the full, 10-minute version of “All Too Well.”

Taylor did this as a gift to her fans, who over the years gave the song a life of its own. Taylor even performed “All Too Well” at the 2014 Grammy Awards, although it was never a single. “It's fun when things surprise you like that,” she admitted. Taylor wrote “All Too Well” when she was in one of her deepest states of grief, but said she finds joy in the song now because of the way her fans responded to it.

In addition to releasing a 10-minute audio version of “All Too Well” in November 2021, Taylor also released a short film accompanying the song. The movie stars Dylan o'brien -> actor And Sadie Sink in the lead roles, with Taylor also showing up for a surprise appearance at the end. She performed the full 10 minute version on Saturday Night Live also in an unprecedented performance.

Who is Taylor Swift's “All Too Well” about?

Many are convinced that Taylor co-wrote “All Too Well” about their brief relationship Jake Gyllenhaal. Even though Taylor never explicitly said this himself, there are many, many clues that point to Jake. The very first clue was in Taylor's album liner notes Red. At that time, Taylor used to capitalize certain letters in the lyrics written on the liner of her records. The capital letters always represented a hidden message intended to give more insight into who or what the song was about. For “All Too Well,” the liner note was “Maple Lattes.” When Taylor and Jake were together, they were photographed holding coffee cups while strolling around New York City, and a coffee shop employee confirmed this PEOPLE at the time they ordered special maple lattes during their store visit on Thanksgiving Day 2010.

Of course, the song was also featured on the first album Taylor released after her breakup with Jake. Many of the songs on Red it's apparently about the good-looking actor. However, “Everything is too good” tells the whole story the couple's relationship, and the 10-minute version offers even more insight.

Swifties also believe that the very first verse of “All Too Well” references the Thanksgiving that Taylor and Jake spent together in 2010. After getting Maple Latte, they spent the holidays with his sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, in Brooklyn. “I left my scarf there, at your sister's house, and you still have it in your drawer, even now,” Taylor sings, referring to the black scarf she wore that day. The “scarf” has become an important symbol for fans.

In the second verse, Taylor continues, “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a double bed.” And yes, Jake actually had glasses as a kid – we've seen the photos to prove it! In the 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” Taylor makes another direct reference to Jake, singing, “You said if we had been more similar in age, maybe it would have been okay, and that's what got that in me.” Awakened the desire to die.” The ex-partners have an age difference of nine years. Later in the song, she referenced her age again, adding, “I've never been good at telling jokes, but the point is: I'm getting older, but your lovers stay my age.” Jake's current girlfriend, Jeanne CadieuHe is 28 years old and 43 years old.

The 10-minute version of “All Too Well” also references Brooklyn, where Taylor spent a lot of time with Jake. She also sings about the song's subject missing her 21st birthday party and Taylor turning 21 in the midst of her relationship with Jake. Another Red The song “The Moment I Knew” is also about this particular heartbreak.

Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal's relationship story

Taylor and Jake first dated for three months between October 2010 and January 2011. She was 20 and he was 29 when they first met. The two were first linked when they were spotted Saturday Night Live together in October 2010. Although the two mostly kept their relationship out of the public eye, they were photographed walking together through New York City on Thanksgiving 2010.

Taylor is really upset and hurt. She feels really burned by him.”

However, it appears from the lyrics of “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” that Taylor and Jake secretly tried to reconnect a few months after the breakup. “You never called it what it was until we were dead and gone and buried, checking the pulse and swearing it was the same after three months in the grave,” Taylor sings in the song. She later gushes that Jake didn't want anyone to know how they tried again. “Here we are again, when no one needed to know, you kept me like a secret, but I kept you like an oath,” she reveals.

Red The song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was also heard, which is presumably also about Jake. The song title says it all, because the lyrics tell the story of an ex who always wants to get back together – except that the narrator finally doesn't understand it anymore. This lines up with the theory that Taylor and Jake got back together before she called it off for good.

What did Jake Gyllenhaal say about “All Too Well”?

In February 2022, Jake spoke “All Too Well” for the first time. “It has nothing to do with me,” he said esquire. “It’s about their relationship with their fans. It's her expression. Artists use personal experiences for inspiration, and I don't begrudge that to anyone.” Despite his level-headed response, Jake also made sure to point out the hate he's received from Taylor fans over the years. “At some point I think it's important when supporters become unruly that we feel responsible for them to behave politely and not allow cyberbullying on their own behalf,” he said. However, he also made it clear that his life had not been threatened by Taylor's fans.

During an interview in 2017 on See what's happening live, Maggie was asked if she still had Taylor's scarf at her house. “I never understood why everyone asked me about that scarf,” Maggie admitted. “What is that?” Andy Cohen explained the situation and Maggie still remained shy. “I’m in the dark about the scarf,” she said. “It's entirely possible. I don't know. I've been asked that before.” If you read the text more closely, you will of course see that it is JAKE who is supposed to have the scarf (in his drawer), and not Maggie!

During an interview in 2013, Taylor seemed revealed Jake's reaction for the Red Album in general. Although she did not directly mention him by name in the interview, it is widely assumed that her quote was in reference to him, as most of the album revolved around him. “He said, 'I just listened to the album and it was a really bittersweet experience for me.' “It was like going through a photo album,” Taylor remembers. “That was great. Nicer than the ranting, crazy emails I got from that one guy.”
