Last Kiss is Swift’s heartbreaking response to her
break-up with Joe Jonas. The hidden message in the lyric booklet spells out Forever and Always, referring to
Swift’s previous song about Jonas from the album Fearless. Her lyric, "I ran off the plane that July 9th,” corresponds with the date Swift flew to
and attended a Jonas Brother’s concert back in 2008. “The sadness of losing
this person, losing all the memories, and the hopes you had for the future.
There are times when you have this moment of truth where you just admit to
yourself that you miss all these things. When I was in one of those moments I
wrote this song.”
