Aniston & Theroux pack on the PDA!
Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer have been broken up for a few years now, but it appears as though it’s taken a while for the heartbreak wounds to heal.

US Weekly is reporting that John, 34, wrote “Shadow Days,” his latest single, about the 43-year-old Friends star, and his now ex-girlfriend. With lyrics such as, “You find yourself alone…I found myself in pieces/On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I’m a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go,” the magazine’s source says, “It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot.”

The “Your Body is a Wonderland” singer wouldn’t be the only star to pen a tune dedicated to an ex.

From the fairly obvious ones, such as Katy Perry‘s latest single “Part of Me,” (about ex-husband Russell Brand), to more ambigious tunes such as Selena Gomez‘s “Bang Bang Bang” (which many think is about her ex Nick Jonas) relive these celeb break-ups in song form by clicking through the gallery!

Also, US Weekly’s source tells them he wrote the song because, “as a farewell letter knowing [Jen] would hear it. Ultimately he’s done a lot of self reflection though and it he realizes they weren’t right for each other.”

The couple started dating in early 2008, with their on again off again relationship ending in late 2009. Since May 2011, Jen has been dating her Wanderlust co-star Justin Theroux.

Celebuzz also spoke with relationship expert Siggy Flicker about this situation, and she said:

“Jennifer Aniston was the only woman who John Mayer loved! He was so used to not getting deep with any other girlfriend that it didn’t matter to him when the relationship came apart and the proof is how he spoke publicly about Jessica and others.

Now Jennifer won his heart. He was madly in love with her. She was the one and she broke it off! Jennifer Aniston is a very private woman. She does not like to have her love life discussed or any other matters in her personal life. If anyone in her close circle dishes out any juice, she crosses them off her list. John Mayer opened up his big mouth one too many times and she told him — BYE BYE!

‘It really took him a long time to get over her. He really loved her a lot.’ She loved him right back but not enough to put up with his immaturity! He did not expect to feel such pain but with every dark tunnel there is always a light at the end. John Mayer’s new song Shadow Days from the album Born and Raised is brilliant. He is an amazing talent and in this song you see a new side of John Mayer – A humble man and not an immature boy!

“You find yourself alone. . . I found myself in pieces/ On my hotel floor/Hard times help me see/I’m a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start/And I finally learned to let it go.” – some of the lyrics to the song and this was intended to let Jen know that he is truly sorry for any grief he had caused her. Now Jen has moved on to a man who is not about to open up his mouth and make a fool of himself so not to worry – JENN AND Justin Theroux have nothing to worry about. Their relationship is strong and their foundation is a solid one.”
