Is "Blank Space" About Harry Styles? 6 Reasons Taylor Swift's Lyrics Are About the One Directioner
Taylor Swift may have written not one, not two, but three songs about Harry Styles on 1989. After listening to a leaked track titled "Blank Space" — which has sadly since been taken down from YouTube — I'm convinced that she's crooning about their short-lived relationship again. Just like "Out of the Woods" referenced their snowmobile accident and "Style" talks about white t-shirts, long hair, and his last name, "Blank Space" touches on specific Haylor things. I've gathered up six reasons why the following lyrics mean the song is probably about him:
- "Find out what you want, be that girl for a month." Their relationship may have lasted longer, but they were first spotted on a date in Central Park in December 2012 and broke up in January 2013.
- "Ain't it funny rumors fly, and I know you heard about me. So hey, let's be friends, I might see how this one ends." Before getting together, there were plenty of rumors about the duo. Styles even told Seventeen he had a crush on her before they dated.
- "Grab your passport and my hand — I can make the bad guys good for a weekend." Swift and Styles had a short but sweet trip to England together in December 2012.
- "A rose garden filled with thorns..." Swift had a rose garden-themed 24th birthday party this year, but I doubt she's singing about her BFF Lorde, who was in attendance. Styles, however, does have a giant rose tattoo, leading me to...
- "It will leave you breathless or with a nasty scar, but I've got a blank space, baby, and I'll write your name." Whether this is just a metaphor or actually about a tattoo, Swift did accompany Styles to get inked in LA. However, she has said that she would never get a tattoo herself since she doesn't want to "commit to something permanent."
- "I get drunk on jealousy, but you'll come back each time you leave. Because darling, I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream." There are always rumors that Swift and Styles are getting back together, so who knows. Maybe he keeps coming back for more, despite her "dating hiatus."
1989 officially drops on Oct. 27.
