In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this month, Harry Styles hinted that a Taylor Swift song would not be out of the question on his album.

"Certain things don't work out," he said when asked what he'd tell Taylor now. "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.'"

When the track list came out, fans at first were convinced 'Ever Since New York' was about Taylor, given her own song 'Welcome to New York' and the fact their relationship had some big moments there. Then Harry debuted that song on SNL, and the lyrics didn't quite seem there.

The clip for his Behind the Album feature included a snippet of the song and a glimpse of his notepad with lyrics. Fans of course zoomed in and were able to decipher the words:

They appear to be:

Same lips red, same eyes blueSame 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 seeWe're not who we used to be,We're not who we used to beWe're just two ghosts standing in...

Given Swift's blue eyes and signature "red lip classic thing that you like" look, it's a reasonable guess this is probably her tribute - and the fact it's almost a direct response to her 1989 song 'Style', which everyone assumed (probably correctly) was about him.

The full album comes out Friday, when you'll all be able to confirm.
