Taylor Swift Reveals Title Song ‘Red’ — Admits She’s Not Over Her Ex

Taylor debuted a new song from her upcoming album 'Red,' the title track, during the Oct. 1 episode of 'Good Morning America.' Should Conor Kennedy be worried that Taylor is still pining for her ex? Let the speculation begin! Taylor Swift loves to name names in her songs, but her latest single is a bit trickier! The country crooner sings that she's not over her ex -- but which one is it about?

Taylor has been sharing a new song from her album, Red, every Monday on GMA since Sept. 24, and will continue to do so until the album’s release on Oct. 22.

Despite the heavy promotion, Taylor told Rolling Stone that she wanted the album to remain a mystery for fans. “I really want there to be so many surprises left on the record for when it comes out eventually, some collaborations that haven’t been talked about and some songs that are definitely what make the album so unique,” she said.

This new song, “Red,” is clearly about an ex, one that she admits she’s not yet over, but who could it be about? Taylor Lautner? Jake Gyllenhaal? John Mayer? Who do you think?

Taylor Lautner seems to be the only ex of Taylor’s that she’s still fond of. Her song “Back To December,” which is reportedly about the Twilight hunk, serves as an apology. Taylor’s other singles “Dear John” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which are rumored to be about John and Jake (respectively), are more diss tracks — far from being apologies.

Read the full ‘Red’ lyrics:

Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street

Faster than the wind, passionate as sin, ending so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn, so bright, just before they lose it all

Losing him was blue, like I’ve never known
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in ront of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you’d never found out that love could be that strong

Losing him was blue, like I’ve never known
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

Oh, red
Burning red

Remembering him comes in flashbacks, in echoes
Tell myself it’s time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible when I still see it all in my head
Burning red
Loving him was red

Oh, losing him was blue, like I’ve never known
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
‘Cause loving him was red
Yeah, yeah red
Burning red

And that’s why he’s spinning round in my head
Comes back to me, burning red
Yeah, yeah
His love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Which ex is she singing about?
