    Its for sure about abuse! He took a swing, I took it hard and now shes lying on the ground and finally sees who he is. She knows he has a mean streak, but she still loves him when he's sweet and kind. The person that she first knew. And she knows that he has control over the abuse and knows what he's doing, all she wants to know is why he's doing it. And finally, thankfully, luckily, in the end she realizes that she has to let him go, because it's not going to stop. It never does.

    I think this song mean that the guy was hurting the girl physically becoz theres a pharse says about 'temper' and 'makes me run to cover when you around': '(
    And the girl want to know why he doing that to her.
    But the girl love the guy so much, finally she realize how he did her wrong and let him go away from her life. . '
    #Love taylor swift soo much!

    This song is basically about how she loves him, but he's no good to her. She's sick and tired of his attutude and she doesn't feel like she knows him anymore. He ruins her day. She can't believe in him. He makes her feel unwanted. He pushes down her dreams and makes her feel miserable just to keep him on her mind.
    To me, he isn't the type of boyfriend I'd want. He doesn't sound loyal or at all nice.
