Is Taylor Swift’s ‘Is It Over Now?’ About Harry Styles?
Fans are convinced that Taylor called out her ex Harry in this track. A few lines of lyrics seemingly refer their brief romance.
“Once the flight had flown,” Taylor sings when she kicks off the song. She and Harry had matching paper airplane necklaces when they dated. Similarly, she references “whеn you lost control / red blood, white snow,” which appears to be a direct reference to the “Out of the Woods” bridge. In that song, Taylor recalls what appeared to be Harry’s snowmobile accident in 2012, singing “remember when you hit the breaks too soon / 20 stitches in the hospital room.”
Another poignant nod to Harry from “Is It Over Now?” is when Taylor sings, “You search in every model’s bed for somethin’ greater.” Harry, for his part, has been romantically linked to a few models over the years, including Kendall Jenner, Nadine Leopold, Georgia Fowler and Camille Rowe.
While Harry has yet to acknowledge this song in particular, he has publicly commented on Taylor writing songs about him.
“Even if the song isn’t that flattering, you still spent time on it and ultimately, using Taylor as an example, she’s a great songwriter,” he explained on the “The Howard Stern Show” in March 2020. “So they’re good songs.”
