Which Songs Did Taylor Swift Write About Harry Styles?

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles nearly broke the internet when news of their relationship broke in 2012. The two first sparked rumors that they were romantically connected during Swift's rehearsal for "The X Factor," per E! News. Styles apparently was seen supporting the "Shake it Off" singer during her performance and playfully joined her on stage. But, it wasn't until the famous Central Park date that it seemed to confirm both the pop singers were in a relationship. Their relationship became all anyone could talk about.

According to the outlet, the two took a very public stroll in New York City's most famous park in December oh that year. Although they weren't kissing and hugging, it was clear the two were more than friends. US Weekly reported that following the Central Park excursion, the two couldn't get enough of one another. They went on a ski trip and spent New Year's Eve together, where they shared a sweet kiss at midnight. Things seemed to be going well — and fans were rooting for their relationship — but it was short-lived. By January 2013, the couple called it quits on their relationship.

At the time, neither Styles nor Swift spoke about their affair. Instead, Swift did what she knows best — write songs. Many musicians draw inspiration from their current or past relations, but Swift seems to be a queen when it comes to lyrics and songwriting. So, it was no surprise that when she and Styles broke up, she would create some of her biggest hits.

Harry Styles inspired multiple Taylor Swift albums

For such a short-lived romance, Taylor Swift supposedly wrote plenty of songs about Harry Styles. One being her famous song "I Knew You Were Trouble," according to E! News. Swift seemingly confirmed it was about the "Adore You" singer at the 2013 Brit Awards. She said, "It's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching." Funnily enough, Styles was a member of the audience that night.

In addition, fans could one way or another connect Swift's album "1989," to Styles. Most notably, the track, "Style," stood out to Swifties. Stating the obvious, the title has the singer's last name. The lyrics "James Dean daydream" and "long hair, slicked back, white T-shirt," also described the heartthrob to a tee.

"Out of the Woods" was another "1989" record fans believed was about Styles. The song had specific details that coincidentally occurred during her relationship with Styles. One standout lyric was, "Ooh, your necklace hanging from my neck." At the time, Styles famously sported a paper airplane necklace that somehow appeared on the neck of Swift, per TigerBeat. In addition, Swift's lyric, "Remember when you hit the brakes too soon, Twenty stitches in the hospital room," seemed to fit the time the couple got in a snowmobile accident, per The Mirror. Swift's vivid lyrics confirmed fans' suspicion that Styles inspired the singer-songwriter to create some of her most well-known hits.

Fans believe Taylor is still inspired by Harry

Fans quickly dissected Taylor Swift's latest album, "Midnights," and many believe she's still inspired by Harry Styles. Although their romance was back in 2012, fans think some songs on "Midnights" might be about Styles.

One song speculated to be about Styles was "Question...?" The lyric that garnered the attention of many was, "Did you ever have someone kiss you in a crowded room? / And every single one of your friends was making fun of you / But 15 seconds latеr they were clapping, too?" In 2012, the two pop singers shared a public kiss to welcome the New Year, per E! News. While it wasn't a room, it was a crowded place, and many Swifties believed the "All Too Well" singer was referencing the British star.

"Maroon" may also be about the "Late Night Talking" singer, because both Swift and Styles allude to an eerily similar instance, per PopSugar. Fans are connecting One Direction's song, "Olivia," to Swift's, "Maroon," since the singers mention a time about spilled wine. In "Olivia," the band sings, "Just thinking how I went about it wrong / This isn't the stain of a red wine, I'm bleeding love." In "Maroon", Swift sings, "The burgundy on my T-shirt when you splashed the wine onto me." Although it may seem like a stretch, many believe the songs are related. While Haylor is no longer a thing, their relationship will continue to live on in Swift's music.
