WATCH: Harry Styles Taking Aim at Taylor Swift in One Direction’s ‘Perfect’ Music Video?
Shot in black in white in the InternContinental Hotel in New York City, the song’s telling lyrics are sung against the backdrop of Taylor’s adopted home of NYC.
One Direction singer, Harry Styles and Swift were famously a couple for two months between 2012 and 2013, supposedly inspiring the 25-year-old songstress with enough material to write her last album, 1989.
In the beginning of the song, the boy banders sing, “I might never be your knight in shining armor/ I might never be the one who you take home to mother/And I might never be the one who brings you flowers/But I can be the one tonight.”
However, it’s the lyrics below, sung when an image of a pensive Harry appears on screen that seem to be the most indicative.
And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out/If you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about.
Time will only tell if Taylor decides a musical response is in order.
