One of the most notable incidents during Taylor Swift's time with Harry Styles was a harrowing snowmobile accident. Swift revealed that she saw her life flash before her eyes during this incident with an ex-boyfriend, which many believe to be Harry Styles.
In "Is It Over?" from "1989 (Taylor's Version)," Swift revisits this traumatic experience with the lyrics: "When you lost control / red blood, white snow." This same accident had been previously alluded to in her 2014 song, "Out of the Woods," with the lyrics: "Remember when you hit the brakes too soon / twenty stitches in a hospital room."

The poignant lyrics "blue dress on a boat" in "Is It Over?" appear to reference a specific moment when Swift was spotted looking melancholic after her breakup with Harry Styles. Initially, the two had planned to spend New Year's together, but this plan didn't materialize.
In 2013, Swift was captured wearing a blue dress on a boat by herself as she departed from their vacation on the island of Virgin Gorda. To add to the intrigue, in the "Out of the Woods" music video, Swift can be seen donning a blue dress, widely interpreted as a nod to that memorable photograph.

In "Is It Over?" from "1989 (Taylor's Version)," Swift accuses her former flame of being a "lying traitor." The lyrics in the song suggest a sense of betrayal, with lines like "You dream of my mouth before it called you a lying traitor" and an implication that Styles was showcasing his new girlfriends, noting, "If she's got blue eyes, I will surmise that you'll probably date her."
This echoes Styles' song lyrics from "From the Dining Room": "Woke up the girl who looked just like you, I almost said your name." The song has stirred up social media with fans speculating that Styles was the inspiration behind "Is It Over?"
