Could John Mayer’s brand new single “Paper Doll” off of his upcoming album “Paradise Valley” be a direct attack to Taylor Swift’s single “Dear John”?
Mayer’s lyrics appear to respond to that of Swifts lyrics in “Dear John”, stating, “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky,” referencing Swifts lyrics “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain.”
The “Paper Doll” chorus then continues to state “You’re like 22 girls in one/and none of them know what they’re running from.” Which seems to attack two Swift’s single “22” and a direct line from “Dear John” where she sang “and regret how I ignored when they said ‘Run as fast as you can.’
The songs do in fact bear quite a resemblance. What do you think?
