While the timing of when Swift wrote the track isn't known, the lyrics are pretty telling for someone who has called it quits with both Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston this year. "I know I’m probably better off on my own than lovin' a man who didn’t know
what he had when he had it," Swift's lyrics read. "And I see the permanent damage you did to me/Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic."
The chorus is also pretty vulnerable. "Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again," Little Big Town sings. "But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man."
Swift is also proud of the song. "Feeling really honored that a band I've loved for so many years decided to record this song I wrote," she posted to Instagram. "Good luck at #cmaawards @littlebigtown!! Love you guys."
This is the second song Swift has admitted to writing after its already been released. In July, ET confirmed that the GRAMMY winner was behind the lyrics for Harris and Rihanna's hit tune, "This Is What You Came For" -- though Harris wasn't thrilled about her identity being revealed.
"Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though," Harris wrote. "I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it. ...Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one."
"As a songwriter, the most rewarding feeling in the world is writing something and then having a crowd sing it back to you, because they know the words. It’s the coolest thing in the world," she told the audience before jumping into her solo piano rendition of the electronic hit. "And I've never played this song live before, but you know it. Maybe you could sing along, and then I could get to know what that feels like to hear it sung back to me."
