Leave it to Taylor Alison Swift to ensure no one ever knows peace. Fans are (read: I am) already sweating bullets in anticipation of the Red (Taylor's Version) release on Friday, Nov. 12. Then, on Nov. 5, Swift announced an "All Too Well" short film, starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O'Brien, to be released on Nov. 12 with the new, 10-minute version of the iconic song. Meaning: what started as the Swiftie Super Bowl is now the Swiftie Olympics. Lest fans be ill-prepared for the big day, it's crucial to come armed with at least three boxes of tissues, the understanding that you will not be fine at all, and a boatload of "All Too Well"-inspired Instagram captions to break every one of your followers like a promise.
Swift's entire discography is constantly lauded by her fans, but few songs have garnered the widespread, enduring adoration "All Too Well" has since its 2012 release. The breakup ballad, rumored to be about Swift's relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, conveys the experience of reliving a relationship's most poignant details while grappling with its end. "'All Too Well' was the hardest to write because it took me a long time to filter through everything I wanted to say," Swift said on Good Morning America in 2012. "It started out being a 10-minute song, which you can't put on an album. I had to filter it down to a story that could work in the form of a song."
Given the current five-minute "All Too Well" storyline is enough to make anyone wrap themselves in a blanket like a little emo burrito, you'll want to brace yourself for the 10-minute version, which is sure to have all the lyrical genius of the original and then some. Whether you're gearing up a steady stream of moody IG content for Nov. 12 or you just want to show your love for Taylor Swift any way you can, here are 31 "All Too Well" Instagram caption ideas.
