“The time I have wasted, the life that can’t be brought back, the memories of the past, I don’t want to think about it anymore.“

There’s quite a stir up with that line in his new song. I hear people are saying that it is about EXO. Especially when Chanyeol posted a photo on instagram with this caption:
feel very tired, angry and anxious right? We will embrace and comfort
you. So just trust us. Let’s see and listen to good things only from now
on. You remember the things I have said right? I will let you love

Many people are saying that part of the lyric is a diss to EXO. It’s understandable considering that Kris and Luhan left as well, leaving a wound to the fans. And it’s also a well known fact that Tao wears his heart on his sleeve, and this isn’t the first time Tao threw his emotions out. There was one time where Tao ranted on Weibo (I vaguely remember it now).
But I beg to differ. I doubt that the lyrics is about EXO.
Personally, when I first read the lyrics, the first person that came in my head was Kris. Maybe because I’m a Taoris fan myself but I personally think that part of the lyrics is directed at Kris, not at EXO.
If you think about it, the two were very close. Even a normal fan who doesn’t believe in otps can see that Tao and Kris were very tight. Then when Kris left, Tao had that moment in the dancing studio where you can hear him sob while he was playing music.
Maybe he was still hurt by Kris’s departure? Maybe he still hasn’t come into good terms with a good friend? Maybe they’re still bitter to each other.
Bottom line, EXO is not the only people Tao knows so we can never be for sure who the lyric is exactly directed to. It may not even be directed at Kris. So stop fighting each other (someone called me dumb -_-) and be so narrow minded.
