Taylor Swift's Red Tour is hitting Manila this Friday (June 6)! Are you ready?

If you haven't listened to the entire Red album yet—because let's admit it, we all have our favorite Taylor Swift songs and they've been on loop every day (we're looking at you "All Too Well" and "The Moment I Knew")—here are a few things you should know about her songs from the album. Perfect for discussions and arguments while waiting in line on Friday, right? So your friends don't throw judging stares your way when you have nothing to say about a certain song from the album. Good luck!

"State of Grace"


Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The hidden sign: "Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes." Sagittarius is one of the three fire signs in the Zodiac. Jake (December 19) and Tay (December 13) are both Sagittarians, and they also have blue eyes.


Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: The hidden message says, "SAG." Sagittarius or the Screen Actors Guild? Whichever of the two you choose to believe, it all points to Jake's direction.


Who it could be about: Harry Styles or Connor Kennedy

The signs: "Won't stop until it's over," which could refer to Harry's tattoo which says "Won't stop 'til we surrender." However, some articles on Google said that this could also be about Connor Kennedy because of the line "I will follow you home," which Tay literally did in the past.

"I Knew You Were Trouble"

Who it could be about: Harry Styles

The sign: TBH, we thought this was another song about Jake. But the song says that she knew from the start that the relationship was going to end badly because of the guy's ways. Harry is known to be a womanizer, right? Tay must've known all along that she's in for "trouble."

"All Too Well"


Who it's about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: "Maple lattes." Google this drink and look at what you find. Even Google remembers it all too well.


Who it could be about: Ashley Greene, Dianna Agron, Claire Callaway, and Selena Gomez

The sign: The hidden message, saying, "Ashley Dianna Claire Selena." A far cry from her uber serious song "15," the hidden message sings of Tay having fun with her BFFs.

"I Almost Do"

Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal


The sign: "Wrote this instead of calling." It's Tay faced by the breakup dilemma: To call or not to call the ex-love of your life? 

"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal or Harry Styles

The sign: The lines don't help that much because it's about breaking up, in general. But because it comes after "I Almost Do," our money's on Jake.

"Stay Stay Stay"


Who it could be about: Tay's idea of The One

The sign: "Before you, I only dated self-indulgent takers who took all of their problems out on me." It's said to be a daydream song for the country singer.

"The Last Time"

Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: "All the times I let you in, just for you to go again," the vagueness in their relationship makes us bet on Jake. Plus, that "L.A. on break" hidden message goes well with Jake taking a break from making movies.

"Holy Ground"

Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal or Joe Jonas

The sign: "When you came to the show in S.D." We don't know who went to Tay's show in San Diego (2011). Even Google doesn't. But we're betting it could be about Joe who went to the country singer's tours. However, since this album is almost entirely dedicated to her almost-great-love Jake, we're kinda torn between the two.

"Sad Beautiful Tragic"

Who it's about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: "While you were on a train." Jake tagged along on tour with Mumford & Sons.

"The Lucky One"

Who it could be about: Joni Mitchell, but we're not sure.

The sign: The cryptic message says, "Wouldn't you like to know?" And we would. But we think it's about singer Joni Mitchell, which Tay is in line to play in a movie.

"Everything Has Changed"


Who it could be about: Connor Kennedy

The sign: The cryptic message, Hyannis Port, points to Connor. Plus, Tay wrote this with BFF Ed Sheeran during the summer when things between her and Connor started to heat up.


Who it could be about: Ethel Kennedy

The sign: The cryptic message says, "For Ethel," and Tay has said several times that she's a fan of the matriarch.

"Begin Again"

Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: "He didn't like it when I wore high heels." Of course, a guy who is almost Tay's height would object to her wearing heels. How could Jake be so cruel, right?


"The Moment I Knew"


Who it could be about: Jake Gyllenhaal

The sign: "How you said you'd be here. You said you'd be here." In case you didn't know, reports said that Tay was heartbroken when Jake said he'll be there for her birthday and turned out to be a no-show.

"Come Back... Be Here"

Who it could be about: Harry Styles

The sign: "New York... Be here. But you're in London and I break down, 'cause it's not fair that you're not around." The word "London" is a little bit of a give away.

"Girl At Home"

Who it could be about: Harry Styles

The sign: "You have a girl at home and everybody knows that." About a guy who has a girl at home? Most people think Harry has lots of girls, so we're betting on him.
