Never again will we get to see photos of the handsome couple frolicking on rocks on the beach, or making out at the Colosseum, or going to endless dinner after endless dinner. We will no longer get to entertain rumors about the next phase of their quickly-advancing relationship. And we have to say goodbye to Tom's "I Heart T.S." shirt forever. The tank top will instead live forever in infamy, stuck in the same purgatory as Jake Gyllenhaal's maple latte, or Harry Styles' mysterious Central Park baby.
What do have to look forward to, though, is the breakup song. The rule of patterns tells us that this is all but guaranteed. There might even be an entire breakup album! The world should be so lucky as to be treated to a dozen or so ballads about their summer of love and sadness. But even master of music Taylor Swift can't write and record as quickly as we'd like, so there's going to be a period of way-too-long anticipation.
In the meantime, why not have a little fun of our own and come up with some song title ideas? After all, we've listened to "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Dear John" enough to know what to expect out of these always-groundbreaking melodies. Until the album release we're all hoping for, we'll simply daydream about these pretend songs as we scroll through pictures of the Fourth of July party that will never be again.
We'll never forget the memories, Hiddleswift.
