It looks like Harry Styles has turned the writing tables on his former girlfriend Taylor Swift and has used their failed relationship as inspiration for a song on his eponymous album. Fans are convinced that the British singer’s song “Two Ghosts” is about his former love, after they got a sneak peek at the lyrics in a promo clip for Harry’s upcoming documentary Behind the Album.
In the short 30-second video, Harry is seen penning words for the unreleased song in his handy little notebook. His “Stylers” were quick to point out that the lyrics sounded like they were describing the “1989” singer.
“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 / Sounds like something that I used to feel / But I can’t touch what I see / We’re not who we used to be / We’re not who we used to be / We’re just two ghosts singing in the…” wrote Harry.
Fans took to social media to note that the red lipstick mention could be a nod to the blond beauty’s signature makeup look. They also noticed similarities in Harry’s lyrics and those in Taylor’s chart-topping hit “Style,” most notably the reference to “white t-shirts.” (“Style” was fiercely rumoured to be about the One Direction heartthrob.)
Even though Harry has stayed tight-lipped about his time with the Taylor, he did hint to radio show host and BFF Nick Grimshaw that the song might be about the superstar. “I mean, I think it’s pretty, like, self-explanatory,” said Harry, who dropped by the BBC Radio 1 show on Friday (May 12) to promote his newly-released album. "I think … sometimes things change and you can do all the same things, but sometimes it's just different, you know?” he explained. After Harry answered more fan questions, Nick then played the track in question, jokingly calling it "the one about Taylor Swift."
