Taylor Swift is forever the queen of writing confessional songs. She simply has a way with stringing together words into lyrics that speak to your soul and even though you might have not dated a member of One Direction or had a fallout with your equally as super famous former friend, you can still relate to these tunes. Writing from her personal experience is a main component of what makes Tay the songwriter that she is and the fact that she's sold millions of albums proves you know, that there are plenty of people out there who like them too.

But it looks like there are a few other artists who used to hold special places in Taylor's heart that are ready to fire back and let the world hear their side of the story. Harry Styles, who famously dated the starlet and together they were known as Haylor, is set to drop his debut album on May 12.

He also has a documentary coming to Apple Music about his journey creating the record and in the trailer, sleuthing fans discovered that his tune "Two Ghosts" basically is about Taylor and their doomed love story. Here's the clip that debuts a preview of the song:


You can faintly hear Hazza belting out the tune in the background, but fans got a screenshot of the scene where he's writing the lyrics in a notebook and it seems to be a direct response to her song "Style."


As you may recall in "Style," Tay sings about her time dating Harry and it looks like he pulled some ispirtion from the chorus of the hit song from her 1989 album. Here is it to refresh your memory:

You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye/And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like/And when we go crashing down, we come back every time/'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt/And I got that good girl fate and a tight little skirt/And when we go crashing down, we come back every time/'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

Shook.

And Harry isn't the only one sharing his side. Taylor's former friend Katy Perry has a new album in the works and while she said there isn't going to be a response song to Taylor's "Bad Blood" that is apparently about the end of their friendship, she did team up with Tay's ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris for a collab on his new album.


So will this track be about their common bond, a very public falling out with Ms. Swift?

Well, since Calvin has said since you know, going on that infamous Twitter rant against Tay that he's over the drama of it all, as is Katy. We highly doubt they would stoop down to the level of pettiness as to drag Taylor in a song since everyone is simply ready to and most likely has already move on. But the fact that these two worked together on music says enough about where their loyalties lie and if they wanted to sting Taylor a bit, this was for sure the way to do it.

Harry on the other hand had nothing but nice things to say about his former leading lady so "Two Ghosts" will most likely just be a song sharing his personal experience being in the relationship, which Tay has sang about not only in "Style" but "Out of the Woods" and even "I Knew You Were Trouble," from the first time the pair allegedly dated are all speculated to be about Harry. No matter what, all of these artists are inspiring and challenging each other in a rather unique way. After all, 1989 did sell more than one million copies in it's first week, so that's something to keep in mind.
