Taylor Swift once said she doesn’t mind if her exes wrote a song about her. “If I’m gonna write songs about my exes, they can write songs about me,” Swift told InStyle U.K. in 2013 (via E! News). “That’s how it works. I’m not gonna complain about it.”

Only a few have taken up the offer (Harry Styles, anyone?) but in 2013, John Mayer released a track called “Paper Doll,” which fans speculate has traces of Swift written all over it. In one line, Mayer sings, “You’re like 22 girls in one/ And none of them know what they’re running from,” per Genius. Fans think that he refers to Swift’s single “22” and a line in “Dear John” that reads, “I’ll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can.” There’s also a line in the song that goes “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky,” which fans claim is a call back to the “Dear John” lyric, “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain.”

Mayer has never directly acknowledged these assumptions, even when he was directly asked. “There’s been some speculation from the press that it might be about someone. True or false?” Willie Geist of the Today show asked (via Us Weekly), but the singer offered a vague response.”Yeah, songwriters write songs because of people, about people. Anything someone else wrote is their reception of a song. I don’t get involved with [it]. It’s none of my business.”
