Taylor Swift, ‘Back to December’ [Video]
Taylor Swift has just released the video for her sorrowful ballad ‘Back to December.’ The song, which is rumored to be about Swift’s romance with ‘Twilight’ star Taylor Lautner, focuses on a painful breakup and Swift’s emotions as she wishes to go back to the days when they were still in love. According to Swift’s song, the breakup, which was her doing, happened in December. She sings, “It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you / Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine / I’d go back to December, turn around and make it all right.”
The video reflects Swift’s emotions in the song, as images of coldness and loneliness creep up throughout it. The opening scene to ‘Back to December’ is of a young man walking outside on a cold winter day. The young man, who is portraying Swift’s ex-boyfriend, is dealing with a great amount of grief, as he aimlessly wanders around contemplating what happened between him and Swift. The boy has obviously been walking for some time, since his face and nose are rosy from the winter chill.
