John Mayer confirms this song is about ex Katy Perry

It makes a song so much more fun to listen to when you know it's about someone you "know." Ya know, like a celebrity. 

John Mayer, who is VERY aware he has a reputation he needs to build back up after creating a grenade that was his mouth [as he puts it], admits that this song is about his relationship with Katy Perry and the time since. He hasn't really dated anyone in the 5-6 years since they were together. 

“Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it’s a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years," he tells the Times. "That was my only relationship. So it’s like, give me this, people.”

A look at some of the lyrics: 

I still keep your shampoo in my shower

In case you wanna wash your hair

And I know that you probably found yourself some more somewhere

But I do not really care'

Cause as long as it is there

I still feel like your man

Still feel like your man

I still feel like your man

Still feel like your man

Still like the letters in your name and how they feel, babe

Still think I'm never gonna find another you

Still like to leave the party early and go home, babe

And don't you know, babe

I'd rather sit here on my own and be alone, babe
