20 Of Taylor Swift’s Best Songs: Decoded
“Come Back… Be Here”
The prevailing belief about this song is that “Come Back… Be Here” was written about Harry Styles. Considering all of the references to London, the short-lived nature of the relationship in the song, and the fact that the man in the song is constantly traveling, it’s a reasonable theory. This song was also written around the same time as “Treacherous,” which Taylor has said was written for the same boyfriend as “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and has liner notes that mention one of Harry’s tattoos, so Harry was clearly on her mind. Harry is most likely the muse behind “Come Back… Be Here,” but Redditor TwoShoesThree also has a pretty well researched theory that Zac Efron might be the man behind the song. If you totally forgot they were ever linked, you’re not alone, but this song was likely recorded around the same time they were spotted together by the media and Zac’s travel schedule lines up with the locations in the song.
