John Mayer: 'Shadow Days' (2012)

Who's it about?
Jennifer Aniston

What makes you think that?
Though the song was released a good few years after the couple split, a source told US Weekly that the song was a tribute to the actress telling the magazine: 'Shadow Days is about Jen. It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot.

'He wrote the song as a farewell letter knowing she would hear it. Ultimately he's done a lot of self reflection though and it he realises they weren't right for each other.'

Mayer has never confirmed or denied the report.

Lyrical evidence:
'You find yourself alone. . . I found myself in pieces/ On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I'm a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go.'
