One Direction's new song "Perfect" is here and it's beyond perfect! Buzz initially swirled that the lyrics could be about Harry Styles' ex-gf, Taylor Swift (and the Haylor era), and now that we've got the full lyrics...um, yeah, we'd say there are plenty of Tay references.

Plus, how much does "Perfect" sound like Taylor's "Style"? Listen to the two songs mashed up below and you'll be blown away by the similarities!

"Perfect" Lyrics:

I might never be your knight in shining armor
I might never be the one you take home to mother
And I might never be the one who brings you flowers
But I can be the one, be the one tonight

When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh yeah)
Girl, I hope you're sure
What you're looking for
'Cause I'm not good at making promises

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn't do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And 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
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

I might never be the hand you put your heart in
Or the arms that hold you any time you want them
But that don't mean that we can't live here in the moment
'Cause I can be the one you love from time to time

When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh yeah)
Girl, I hope you're sure
What you're looking for
Cause I'm not good at making promises

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn't do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And 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
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out (Oh yeah)
And if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, we're perfect

If you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn't do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And 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
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now


Did you catch all the (possible) Taylor references? MTV.com did a pretty excellent breakdown of the One Direction's "Perfect" lyrics being a response to Taylor's song lyrics, so that's worth checking out, but this mashup of Taylor's "Style" and 1D's "Perfect" is cray:
