Mean Lyrics

    I think this song is about the record label guys in Nashville who didn't sign her when she was 11. According to Wiki, she sent a tape to every record label in Nashville but was rejected by all of them.
    It's like she's telling them that someday she'll get a big record deal and she'll be "living in a big ole city" and they're still gonna be where they are...

    When she sings "you have pointed out my flaws again, as if i don’t already see them", it's like they're telling her where she's going wrong with her singing/playing/etc.

    Either that, or it's about bullying!

    It's actually about a guy who made fun of Taylor because he didn't like her singing.

    i think this song is written to the media. it's saying that people telling her she can't sing isn't getting to her and that she's gonna prove herself
