Is Selena Gomez the subject of Niall Horan’s new song?! The two never confirmed their relationship, but they definitely seemed hot and heavy for a few weeks last year — and then it abruptly ended. Could his lyrics about heartbreak on ‘This Town’ be about Selena?!
We’re totally loving Niall Horan’s first solo single “This Town,” but if you take a good listen to the lyrics, you’ll notice that it’s actually a really sad song! The One Direction singer croons about how he’s having a hard time after seeing his ex move on with someone new — particularly after watching another guy putting his arm around her in the bar where they met.
Lyrics like “from when we were the children playing in this fairground/wish I was there with you now,” make us wonder if the track is actually about a different lover from Niall’s past. But, then again, he and Selena have known each other for years now — and they probably were young enough to consider themselves “children” when they were first introduced.
“And I want to tell you everything, the words I never got to say the first time around,” he sings on “This Town.” Could it be that Niall is having regrets about not trying harder to make things work with the 24-year-old after their brief rumored romance?!
Even though Selena and Niall never confirmed they dated, it was pretty clear that they had some sort of a relationship at the end of 2014. They were seen together at a birthday party at the beginning of December, where they were reportedly caught kissing, and were then spotted hanging out several times over the next few weeks. Sel even flew to London to join Niall at an X-Factor after-party after 1D performed on the show! It fizzled out pretty quickly, but we’re definitely not ruling out the possibility that “This Town” is about Selena!
