Taylor Swift premiered her sweat-inducing 10-minute version of her breakout song “All Too Well” on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.”
The song, first written by the singer in 2012, is widely speculated about her ex-boyfriend, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, with whom she befriended at the tender ages of 20 and 21 – and she didn’t retain Saturday’s biting lyrics.
Against a videotape showing a relationship-wrong (a short film she wrote and directed), the red-lipped, guitar-dressed Swift belted lines like, “I’ve never been good at telling jokes, but the punch goes,‘ I’ll get old, but yours lovers remain at my age ‘”and:” You call me again only to break me as a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest. “
The song is featured on Swift’s newly released re-recording of her 2012 album “Red.”

It was revealed years ago that there was a 10-minute unedited version of the song and after constant encouragement from her fans, it is now included in the reissue, according to The Washington Post.
Unlike most “SNL” musical guests, Swift chose to perform the one marathon-long song rather than the normal two songs during Saturday’s appearance – which was her fifth on the sketch show.
Swift also performed in a Pete Davidson digital short that featured “SNL” writers Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy, who make up the comedy group Please Don’t Destroy.
Swift exclaimed that the three comedians – whom Davidson slapped in his proposed music video as “three sad maidens” – had the “sexual allure of a scarecrow” and looked more like “sad Ron Weasley.”
“All Too Well” also received a mention on the fake news segment of “SNL” Weekend Update.

“Well guys, I think the lesson we all learned this week is never a breakup with Taylor Swift or she’ll sing about you for 10 minutes on national TV,” co-star Colin Jost joked to a tumultuous cheer.
“At least, return the scarf,” he added, referring to the song’s lyrics in which Swift claims the ballad’s theme still has the red scarf she left at her sister’s house “because it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me. “
