I used to think that we were forever ever
And I used to say, "Never say never"
Huh, so he calls me up and he's like, "I still love you"
And I'm like, "I just, I mean this is exhausting, you know
Like, we are never getting back together, like ever"

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

Meaning

She used to have the naive expectation that everything would end up fine and that no matter what they could still get back together.

Now she’s less naive and realizes some relationships just don’t work out like a fairy-tale. In this part of the song she speaks as though she is actually talking to him on the phone, which helps you to connect with the lyrics, and also makes them more catchy.
