However, an earlier track on the album Paradise Valley where the song “Paper Doll” is featured is called “Wildfire” and its opening lyrics are:
River’s strong you can’t swim inside it We could string some lights up the hill beside it Tonight the moon’s so bright You could drive with your headlights out ‘Cause a little bit of summer’s what the whole year’s all about
Given the widespread rumours that “Paper Doll” was about Taylor, the lyrics “You’re like 22 girls in one” being seen as a nod to her anthem “22″, and given that there was a back and forth sing off to each other as it were, does it not seem likely that Taylor Swift would have added a song on her 1989 album that was in response to John Mayer’s album which contained a song about her? Comparing the lyrics in “Style” to lyrics written by John Mayer, it would heavily suggest that it is about him, and not about Harry Styles, despite her heavily insinuating as much in the beginning of her music video.
“Style” starts thusly:
Midnight, you come and pick me up, no headlights Long drive, could end in burning flames or paradise
The first song on Mayer’s album entitled PARADISE Valley is “Wildfire”, which as mentioned above has the lyrics “You could drive with your headlights out” in the first verse.
Fade into view, oh, It’s been a while since I have even heard from you
Assuming that Swift and Mayer had what appears to be a pretty unamicable breakup, I’m sure that he wouldn’t have given her any kind of warning about “Paper Doll” given that he was very vocal about the fact that she did not extend him the same courtesy when it came to “Dear John”.
You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
You’ve got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
The lyrics, “And I got that good girl faith” are oddly similar to the lyrics in “Half of My Heart”, the song the two of them sang together, which go:
Your faith is strong But I can only fall short for so long Down the road, later on You will hate that I never gave more to you than half of my heart But I can’t stop loving you
people getting all salty on my post all “well guess what i don’t care about taylor’s new trash song im so above it all” and im just sitting here like, hon if you didn’t care then you wouldn’t be sitting on tumblr dot com stalking the taylor swift tag and adding unnecessary commentary, and like way to prove the entire purpose of the song in a single comment lmfao bye
How do u know that Joe and Taylor are PR? Kaylor might have broken up
Well, I don’t believe Joe is straight and I don’t believe Taylor is bi, so that makes it hard for me to take the idea of them being in a real relationship seriously 😉
Also, while it’s not impossible that Karlie and Taylor would split up, any split would have to have happened long after the Joe storyline was introduced to the public. In August Karlie was quoting unreleased Taylor lyrics on her eclipse posts. In September Tree (Taylor’s publicist) was nixing articles that claimed the Kaylor “friendship” was over. Karlie also stepped out in a “Blind For Love” shirt in honor of Taylor wearing a similar one in her LWYMMD music video. AND the recently released Taylor Swift Now ad was heavy on the Karlie references, drawing on her Valentine’s quiz for Swarovski for much of its content, as well as sneaking in nods to rainbows, Kookies, kale, and the Bad Blood music video. (Karlie has also kept her Moonman for this video on prominent display in recent social media posts.) The only evidence for a Kaylor split is their lack of public interaction, and that’s nothing new. So no, I’m not worried.
