Taylor Swift Posts Third Song Lyric to Instagram, Remains Cryptic [PHOTO]

Just in time for for our daily Taylor Swift freak out, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer posted yet another batch of cryptic lyrics to Instagram today (Oct. 16) and we still have no idea what’s going on.

Written in a spiral that seems to be heading only toward more confusion, the lyrics are as follows: “I say ‘I heard that you’ve been out and about with some other girl’.”

Now, we literally have no idea what this song is going to sound like, because we only have words on paper and it’s probably best not to assume anything, but we just can’t help it. We’re standing behind our educated guess that these lyrics could be part of the song she named in her interview with ‘Rolling Stone’ called ‘Style.’ The reason behind our super thought out, educated guess? Spiral vaguely rhymes with style. It makes way too much sense.

The lyrics seem to wistfully mention a ‘you,’ and that ‘you’ is stepping out with another girl. Will this song be Taylor’s angry ‘You Oughta Know’ a la Alanis Morissette or will it be more akin to Adele‘s ‘Someone Like You?’ Are we totally off-base? Does it even matter!?

We also can’t help but wonder who Taylor’s talking about here. Is it Harry Styles? Jake Gyllenhaal?? Meredith!? The world may never know. Or, well, maybe we will, when the album comes out in 11 days. Not that we’re counting or anything.

Sigh. Patience is a virtue, Swifties. We’ll try to keep telling ourselves that until ‘1989’ drops on Oct. 27.
