Is One Direction's new single "Perfect" about Taylor Swift? While we're all eagerly waiting to hear it, there's already some speculation swirling that the song's lyrics, penned by Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, are totally about Taylor. Honestly, we're not so sure.

The Sun (via The Mirror) is reporting that, according to insiders, one lyric says Harry (or some person) was just "someone to write break-up songs about."

Oh, and the tune also reportedly sounds like Tay's "Style," which happens to be about Harry. So could "Perfect" be a revenge song?

A source tells The Sun: "Harry would never get too specific about Taylor in a song, but the lyrics are definitely going to get fans speculating." The insider type added, "He doesn't want to dish the dirt but a relationship as intense as theirs has provided lots of inspiration."

Intense? Really. Okayyy then.

The lyrics reportedly include: "If you like when I'm driving with the windows down / If you like going places we can't even pronounce / If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about / Baby you're perfect."

That's drawing some comparisons to Taylor's "I Wish You Would," where she sings: "It's 2am in your car / Windows down, you pass my street, the memories start."

It all sounds a little foggy to us, but we'll wait until we hear the full "Perfect" lyrics before connecting any dots.

Meanwhile, the guys gave a little teaser of "Perfect" at their Birmingham show earlier this week...well, sort of.

Liam Payne asked the audience: "Who's excited to hear 'Perfect'?" Um. Yeah. Everyone, silly.

Harry gave the ultimate tease when he asked, "Shall we sing it now?," followed by, "That's a shame." Srsly? Don't do this to us, guys. We can't wait to hear it!
