Singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson is accusing Taylor Swift of stealing his lyrics. Taylor is actually a fan of Matt's, and has even written some of his song lyrics on her arm during shows on her Speak Now tour. This time, however, Matt's not so flattered.
The line in question is from a song called "All Too Well" on Taylor's new Red CD. The lyrics are "And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to." There's a line from Matt's 2003 Beneath These Fireworks album in a song called "I Saw" that reads,"And I'll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to."
Matt called Taylor out on Twitter on Friday (November 2nd) in a post that has since been deleted writing, "She's definitely a fan... and now she's a thief."
Apparently Taylor's fans weren't too happy about this because a tweet from Matt a short time later read, "So far, my favorite thing about today is the wave of @taylorswift13 fans calling me a pr*** on twitter for writing 'I Saw' in 2003."
According to Taylor's Red CD, she co-wrote "All Too Well" with songwriter Liz Rose.
