There's a very plausible theory that the lyrics of Harry Styles' new song are all about Taylor Swift

Let’s analyse.

HARRY STYLES HAS been everywhere in the last couple of weeks – from releasing Sign Of The Times to *that* Rolling Stone interview.

And yesterday, Apple Music dropped a 30-second-long trailer for a behind the scenes documentary about the making of his new album.

And in it, fans think they’ve discovered a song all about Taylor Swift

Their relationship from back in 2012/2013 has always been a source of fascination – with Swift’s songs often cited as being potentially about Styles.

Now the shoe is on the other foot.

The song in question is called Two Ghosts – and the documentary shows the lyrics for a split second

And that’s where the theory comes in.

The crucial lines to look at are:

Same lips red, same eyes blue
Same white shirt, couple more tattoos
But it’s not you and it’s not me
Tastes so sweet looks so real

Why? Well Taylor released a song in 2014 called Style – which is universally accepted to be about the former One Direction man (the name alone, for starters)

Importantly, the lyrics to that song contain these sections:

You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip classic thing that you like
You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt

Hardly the most subtle references back to Style from Harry then.

So now fans are waiting for the full song to come out – but their minds are already made up

We already knew that there would be some sort of song about their relationship after he told Rolling Stone, when asked about Taylor:

Certain things don’t work out. There’s a lot of things that can be right, and it’s still wrong. In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together. You’re celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than ‘this didn’t work out, and that’s bad.

Case closed, surely
