John can see this as his father's love now and appreciates what he did for...

Did you know originally only a 5:29 min version was released of All Too Well? But long-time Swifie fans like Priscilla Brooke knew there was a longer version. She hung in there and sure enough Taylor Swift released the full version...NINE years later! And this was the version Priscilla chose to share memories about.
