It’s been three years since John and Jen were together and in his new song he talks about how devastated he was after the break up and that he’s just now getting over her — read on for the emotional lyrics!

Jennifer Aniston is a heartbreaker! Us Weekly is reporting that John Mayer‘s new song “Shadow Days” is all about Jen.

“You find yourself alone … I found myself in pieces/ On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I’m a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go.”

“Shadow Days is about Jen,” a source says. “It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot. He wrote the song as a farewell letter knowing [Jen] would hear it. Ultimately he’s done a lot of self reflection though and it he realizes they weren’t right for each other.”

John and Jen broke up in 2008 after multiple breakups and John has had a hard time getting over her.

“[John and Jen] weren’t right for each other,” the source says. “But he is really a good guy.”
