As Swifties and anyone who checks Twitter on a semi-regular basis knows, the second single from Taylor Swift's forthcoming album—1989—dropped last night at midnight. "Out Of The Woods" details a "fragile" relationship, which, according to Rolling Stone, is the one she had with Harry Styles back in 2012.
Before the song dropped, many were crediting the lyrics about a snowmobiling accident as the big "reveal," though if you have an intimate knowledge of every piece of jewelry Harry Styles has worn in his lifetime—like I do—another set of lyrics is more telling.
OK, so, the second verse starts, and four lines in, Taylor sings, "Your necklace hanging from my neck/The night we couldn’t quite forget." The word "necklace" brought back memories of a swapped necklace I hadn't thought of in two years. Harry's necklace.
Throughout 2012, when One Direction was kicking thangs off and Harry still wore blazers with pocket squares, he also wore a lot of necklaces. Among them was a paper plane necklace, which, as any Directioner knows, was, um, kinda a big part of his look. It was always there—you could count on it.
Then, in November of 2012, at the height of the short-lived "Haylor" romance, the same necklace cropped up on Taylor. Did Harry give her his necklace? According to the "Out Of The Woods" lyrics, I'm gonna go with a resounding yes. But wait—THERE'S MORE.
The lyrics at the end of that verse? "Baby, like we stood a chance/Two paper airplanes flying, flying…" *SCREEEEEEECH* Hold up. A paper airplane and necklace reference in the same verse? There's no way that's accidental, right??? Related: Where do you think that necklace is now—the bottom of the ocean?
