The Truth About Taylor Swift’s ‘You All Over Me’ Featuring Maren Morris (Taylor’s Version)

Taylor Swift is making all of us look bad productivity-wise. In 2020, she unleashed two surprise albums, one of which went on to win the Grammy for Album of The Year. And now, she’s releasing … not a third surprise LP — that would be super-human — but Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The album is part of her Fearless quest to reclaim her “narrative” (and royalties) from Scooter Braun. Dropping on April 9, 2021, with 26 tracks total, and six previously unreleased tunes — including “You All Over Me” featuring Maren Morris (Taylor’s Version) — we want these songs all over us … not unlike a “Cardigan”!

“Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” debuted in February 2021 at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. And the sultry “You All Over Me” saw the singer earn her 25th Hot Country Songs Top 10, with Morris earning her seventh. So, even though Swift’s album rollout has included more puzzles and clues than a Sherlock Holmes villain, she has the numbers to back it up, as per usual. But what is the anthemic “You All Over Me” actually about, anyway?

Since Swift wrote these tunes more than a decade ago, during a time when no stone was left unturned (or ex unmentioned) in her song lyrics, it’s worth taking a deeper look. Strum on down to find out what fans are saying!

Could 'You All Over Me' be about one ex-boyfriend in particular?

So, what is “You All Over Me” featuring Maren Morris (Taylor’s Version) about? “‘You All Over Me’ is a once-unreleased song that leaked in 2017, written in 2008 for Swift’s sophomore album, Fearless,” as one Genius contributor wrote. They added that the song, which dropped in March 2021, marks “the first time that Swift has worked with Maren Morris on record.” They continued, “Lyrically, the song contains similar thematic elements to her 2014 song ‘Clean’ and describes the feeling of still being connected to a former lover.” 

With lyrics like “I lived, and I learned, had you, got burned/ … But no amount of freedom gets you clean / I’ve still got you all over me,” there’s no question about that. But is the famously lyrically-pointed Swift singing about one specific ex?

“Seeing that Swift and [Joe] Jonas dated and broke up right before her Fearless album was released in 2008, it’s understandable that a handful of her vault tracks would be about the Jonas Brothers singer,” PopSugar wrote. The outlet added, “‘You All Over Me’ includes a few subtle nods to Jonas.” That “burned” lyric could be a reference to the band’s track, “Burnin’ Up” no? Fans seem to think so. “So You All Over Me is about Joe Jonas, right?” one Twitter user wrote. “so you all over me was a prelude of clean???” another asked.

Just something to think about while you’re jamming out!
