If you remember, WANEGBT is about him too, and the lyrics were
"we called it off again last night", "he called me up again tonight", "He calls me and he's like i still loe you..."
and in Clean, there are lyrics that pay homage to this such as
"It was months and months of back and forth", "10 months sober, I must admit, just because you're clean don't mean you don't miss it" (This part could also be tied to "I hate you, we break up, You call me, I love you")
But it's just a thought

Yeah, that's what I mean and they both mention hiding the relationship too. She mentions Conmor having green eyes in Everything has changed but I would lean towards Harry if he has green eyes too. (She did wear that fox sweater while out with him once although that probably doesn't mean anything. haha) I think they're mostly about him or are just made up because she didn't date anyone else while writing it except maybe Connor but I hate that the secret messages don't give anything away! And did anyone else notice she's mentioned green eyes in 4 songs now? And someone pointed out to me there's quite a few mentions of ghosts as well on the album (Bad blood, How to get the girl and Clean off the top of my head but I think there's more) which is something she never really said in a song before that I can remember other than in Sweet tea and God's graces. An interesting theme for such a happy album.Sunnified! wrote:I know places and Wonderland have to be about the same person because they both mention green eyes
Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're they're all about him too but I don't get why people say that about their album title, the line is take me out. lolKate wrote:Harry Styles has green eyes, so all the songs that mention green eyes are probably about him. Same as OOTW and Style (I think Style is a bit obvious with, you know, the title, and also the fact that she repeats "Take Me Home" which was one of 1D's album titles. I think it was the one that came out about the same time as Red and when they started dating, so it makes sense that Style is about Harry Styles).
maria wrote:I thought it said take me home on the booklet?
Yeah, it does. I realized that later so I feel stupid now. lol But honestly, I only hear out when she sings it and that makes more sense to me with the references to him taking her out earlier in the song. It almost makes me wonder if they got it wrong because they have before but they probably didn't. I'm probably just hearing it wrong. I also thought she was saying "stand back wasted" in I wish you would even though I knew that wasn't it. hahaKate wrote:maria wrote:I thought it said take me home on the booklet?
It does. It's "Take me home," not "Take me out," but it's difficult to tell the difference when she's singing it.
maybe that's a hintSadie wrote:I like Style a lot, but I find the 'Take Me Home' a bit unnecessary, lol. Not to mention, it's the name of a One Direction album...

Vicki296 wrote:Guys, this is super crazy, but I can't shake this feeling that "You Are in Love", though it is about Lena and Jack is also loosely based off her relationship with Harry Styles in some of the imagery she chooses. At least the first verse, then it fades into more Antonoff+Dunham-ness...]
ONE LOOK / DARK ROOM / MEANT JUST FOR YOU / TIME MOVED TOO FAST / YOU PLAY IT BACK "Timing is a funny thing and everyone was watching"-from the secret message/ BUTTONS ON A COAT / LIGHTHEARTED JOKE / NO PROOF, NOT MUCH / BUT YOU SAW ENOUGH // SMALL TALK, HE DRIVES-Makes me think of every other car reference related to Styles / COFFEE AT MIDNIGHT / THE LIGHT REFLECTS / THE CHAIN ON YOUR NECK-Serious OOTW vibes in that phrase. / HE SAYS LOOK UP / AND YOUR SHOULDERS BRUSH
So yeah, I mean even if she did take imagery from her relationship with Harry it doesn't really matter all that much, but still, I thought I'd share a little of what goes on in my brain when I hear the first verse of the song.

*I noticed that these songs are all about a really off/on unstable relationship and there's just something about them where you can tell there all about one person (Harry.)
I thought that too.Kate wrote:To be honest, it wouldn't surprise me if there were songs about Joe or Jake on here because they've made it onto many albums. I feel like those two relationships affected her the most. So I agree that Clean could be about Jake. I wouldn't be surprised if I Wish You Would was inspired by them both. I don't feel like it's completely about one person, I feel like it was inspired by a couple of her past boyfriends. I don't know, just a theory.
