Style is the third track and single of Taylor's fifth album 1989. It was released on October 27, 2014. It became a single on February 9, 2015.

Meaning and Background

The song is about a relationship that's always a bit off. Both people tried to go out with others and forget one another, but are still thinking about each other. Taylor mentioned that, unlike previous albums where the other person is always wrong, she admits to wrongdoings herself. It's about a romantic relationship Taylor had; it's rumoured to be about Harry Styles because of the song title and the necklace they wore during their relationship appearing in the music video.[1] Taylor seems to confirm this in a Rolling Stone interview that they could've called it "I'm Not Even Sorry".

Trivia

  • This song and Shake It Off where the last songs written for the album.

Music Video

The music video was released on February 9, 2015. It features actor Dominic Sherwood. It was filmed in Los Angeles in Summer 2014.

Storyline

Trivia

  • In the video, a paper plane necklace is briefly shown. This refers to Harry Styles; they wore paper plan necklaces during their relationship.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Midnight
You come and pick me up, no headlights
Long drive
Could end in burning flames or paradise
Fade into view, oh
It's been a while since I have even heard from you
(Heard from you)
I should just tell you to leave 'cause I
Know exactly where it leads but I
Watch it go 'round and 'round each time

[Chorus]
You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style
You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Verse 2]
So it goes
He can't keep his wild eyes on the road (Mmm)
Takes me home
Lights are off he's taking off his coat (Mmm)
I say, "I've heard
That you've been out and about with some other girl."
(Some other girl)
He says, "What you've heard is true but I
Can't stop thinking about you and I."
I said, "I've been there too a few times."

[Chorus]
'Cause you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style
You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
(A tight little skirt)
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style (we never go, we never go)
We never go out of style

[Bridge]
Take me home
Just take me home
Yeah just take me home
Oh-oh, whoa-oh, oh
(Out of style)

[Chorus]
You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down (and when we go)
We come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style
We never go out of style
