Five days before the big reveal of "Out of the Woods," a number of reports had claimed this was the song on Swift's fifth album that was inspired from a break up. Back then, the country crooner had not confirmed the speculations. However, in a new interview the "Red" singer confirms the latest single is about the "fragility" of relationships.

Of course, a number of reports immediately claimed the song was about One Direction's Harry Styles. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dated briefly in 2013 and had then been dubbed the "Haylor" couple. The couple split after only three months of dating. According to a fan of Swift present at her secret "1989" hearing session, the fans were to blame behind the break up.

Yet, it seems that the reason behind the split was mainly because the "Haylor" couple was simply too "fragile." In an interview on "Good Morning America," Swift talked about her latest single "Out of the Woods" and confirms that it is indeed a break up song.

"This song is about the fragility and breakable nature of some relationships. This was a relationship where I was kind of living day-to-day wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day," stated the songstress.

"You kind of never feel like you're standing on solid ground. That kind of a feeling brings on excitement, but also extreme anxiety," continued Swift.

"Out of the Woods" is just another song from Swift's fifth upcoming album, "1989." The Grammy award winner first released the hit single "Shake It Off" which garnered a number of rave reviews. Swift even performed the single at "X-Factor" UK alongside gentlemen dressed in tuxedos.

The latest song from her "1989" isn't the first break up song about a high profile celebrity. Other songs dedicated to a slew of Swift's relationships include "Dear John" for John Mayer, "Better than Revenge" for Joe Jonas, "Back to December" for Taylor Lautner, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" for Jake Gyllenhaal, "Enchanted" for Adam Young and "State of Grace" for Connor Kennedy.
