The song is about the narrator's experience of watching a friend fall in and out of love, and her admiration for that friend. Incorporating crossover elements between country and pop, it begins as a gentle ballad before building up to its chorus.
This song is an ode to a childhood friend. The narrator reminisces on the times they spent together while they were younger, and they point out how much their friend has changed since leaving their hometown.
This song was inspired by the break-up with Taylor Swift's boyfriend Joe Jonas, a member of Jonas Brothers. Taylor Swift revealed, "The song 'Last Kiss' is sort of like a letter to somebody. You say all of these desperate, hopeless feelings that you have after a break-up. Going through a break-up you feel all of these different things.
This song is about my band, and my producer, and all the people who have helped us build this brick by brick. The fans, the people who I feel that we are all in this together
The song "Never Grow Up" by Taylor Swift is a reflection on the desires of many to remain in a simpler, carefree state throughout life rather than maturing into adulthood. The lyrics reflect on innocence of childhood, where everything was fun and carefree and there was nothing to regret.
The song tells the story of Swift lusting after someone who seemingly has no idea how she feels as she imagines herself getting mighty up close and personal with them.
