It seems like Taylor Swift has fired back at her former boyfriends with a brand new break-up song that the pop princess has reportedly penned. Titled Better Man, the songstress has written the new track for country group Little Big Town. Although Swift is still working on the music, the lyrics are believed to more of a shout at a former jealous lover.
The country band's lead vocalist, Karen Fairchild revealed the songwriter's identity via a Facebook Live video and claimed that the song was "really special" to 26-year-old Swift. Better Man, which was released on 20 October, talks about a jealous ex-boyfriend and if gossip reports are to be believed, it could be addressing Swift's recent break-ups.
The lyrics of the song read: "But your jealousy, I can hear it now. You're talking down to me like I'll always be around. You push my love away like it's some kind of loaded gun. Boy, you never thought I'd run.
"I know I'm probably better off all alone. Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute. And it's always on your terms.
"I gave you my best and we both know you can't say that. We might still be in love, if you were a better man."
After confirmation came from Fairchild that the "young girl in Nashville" who wrote their track is none other than Swift, even the Blank Space hit-maker acknowledged her contribution on Instagram. "Feeling really honoured that a band I've loved for so many years decided to record this song I wrote," Swift wrote on the picture-sharing site.
The song from Swift comes after the Scottish DJ recorded his own break-up track titled My Way. After Harris released the song in September, fans were quick to speculate that the song refers to his pop star ex-girlfriend.
Swift and the 32-year-old music producer called it quits on their relationship earlier this year and despite the amicable split, the two had a bitter fall-out involving some very public Twitter spats.
