I remember when we broke up, the first time
Saying, "This is it, I've had enough," cause like
We hadn't seen each other in a month
When you said you needed space. What?
Then you come around again and say
"Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change; trust me"
Remember how that lasted for a day?
I say, "I hate you," we break up, you call me, "I love you"

from Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Taylor is sick and tired of the endless patterns of on and off type relationships. This boy keeps asking for space and then wanting to get closer again, and the attempts to work things out keep failing. The vicious cycle of hate, separation, and love takes its toll on Taylor. Each time that the two try to end it, the guy always comes back to rekindle the dead relationship.

Sounds like…slowdancing in a burning room?
