Taylor Swift – Bad Blood Lyrics

‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey

Did you have to do this? I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shiny? Now it’s all rusted
Did you have to hit me, where I’m weak? Baby, I couldn’t breathe
And rub it in so deep, salt in the wound like you’re laughing right at me

Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times, you and I

‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey

Did you think we’d be fine? Still got scars on my back from your knife
So don’t think it’s in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last.
Now did you think it all through? All these things will catch up to you
And time can heal but this won’t, so if you’re coming my way, just don’t

Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times, you and I

‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts (ghosts)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes (hey)
You say sorry just for show (hey)
If you live like that, you live with ghosts (hey)
If you love like that blood runs cold

‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love (mad love)
So take a look what you’ve done
‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them (think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
(Hey)

‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done (look what you’ve done)
‘Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey

Girl At Home Lyrics By Taylor Swift

Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that.

I don’t even know her,
But I feel a responsibility,
To do what’s upstanding and right,
It’s kinda like a code, yeah,
And you’ve been getting closer and closer,
And crossing so many lines.

And it would be a fine proposition,
If I was a stupid girl,
But honey I am no-one’s exception,
This I have previously learned.

So don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
I see you turn off your phone,
And now you got me alone,
And I say,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that.

I just wanna make sure,
You understand perfectly,
You’re the kind of man who makes me sad,
While she waits up,
You chase down the newest thing,
And take for granted what you have.

And it would be a fine preposition,
If I was a stupid girl,
And yeah I might go with it,
If I hadn’t once been just like her.

Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
I see you turn off your phone,
And now you’ve got me alone,
And I say,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that.

Call a cab,
Lose my number,
You’re about to lose your girl,
Call a cab,
Lose my number,
Let’s consider this lesson learned.

Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Wanna see you pick up your phone,
And tell her you’re coming home,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that,
Don’t look at me,
You’ve got a girl at home,
And everybody knows that,
Everybody knows that.

It would be a fine proposition,
If I hadn’t once been just like her.

Come Back… Be Here Lyrics By Taylor Swift

You said it in a simple way,
4 AM, the second day,
How strange that I don’t know you at all.
Stumbled through the long goodbye,
One last kiss, then catch your flight,
Right when I was just about to fall

I told myself don’t get attached,
But in my mind I play it back,
Spinning faster than the plane that took you…

And this is when the feeling sinks in,
I don’t wanna miss you like this,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.
I guess you’re in New York today,
I don’t wanna need you this way,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.

The delicate beginning rush,
The feeling you can know so much,
Without knowing anything at all.
And now that I can put this down,
If I had known what I’d known now,
I never would have played so nonchalance.

Taxi cabs and busy streets,
That never bring you back to me,
I can’t help but wish you took me with you…

And this is when the feeling sinks in,
I don’t wanna miss you like this,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.
I guess you’re in London today,
I don’t wanna need you this way,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.

This is falling in love in the cruelest way,
This is falling for you and you are worlds away.

New York… be here.
But you’re in London and I break down,
‘Cause it’s not fair that you’re not around.

This is when the feeling sinks in,
I don’t wanna miss you like this,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.
I guess you’re in New York today,
And I don’t wanna need you this way,
Come back… be here, come back… be here.

I don’t wanna miss you like this.
Come back… be here.
Come back… be here.

The Moment I Knew Lyrics By Taylor Swift

You should’ve been there,
Should’ve burst through the door,
With that ‘baby I’m right here’ smile,
And it would’ve felt like,
A million little shining stars had just aligned,
And I would’ve been so happy.

Christmas lights glisten,
I’ve got my eye on the door,
Just waiting for you to walk in,
But the time is ticking,
People ask me how I’ve been
As I come back through my memory,
How you said you’d be here,
You said you’d be here.

And it was like slow motion,
Standing there in my party dress,
In red lipstick,
With no-one to impress,
And they’re all laughing,
As I’m looking around the room,
But there’s one thing missing,
And that was the moment I knew.

And the hours pass by,
Now I just wanna be alone,
But your close friends always seem to know
when there’s something really wrong,
So they follow me down the hall,
And there in the bathroom,
I try not to fall apart,
And the sinking feeling starts,
As I say hopelessly,
“He said he’d be here.”

And it was like slow motion,
Standing there in my party dress,
In red lipstick,
With no-one to impress,
And they’re all laughing,
And asking me about you,
But there’s one thing missing,
And that was the moment I knew.

What do you say
When tears are streaming down your face,
In front of everyone you know?
And what do you do when the one
Who means the most to you,
is the one who didn’t show?

You should’ve been here.
And I would’ve been so happy.

And it was like slow motion,
Standing there in my party dress,
In red lipstick,
With no-one to impress,
And they’re all standing around me singing,
Happy Birthday to you,
But there’s one thing missing,
And that was the moment I knew.

Ooh, I knew.

You call me later,
And say I’m sorry I didn’t make it.
And I say I’m sorry too,
And that was the moment I knew.

Starlight Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I said, “Oh my, what a marvelous tune”
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved.
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight
Like we’re made of starlight

I met Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of ’45
Picked me up late one night at the window,
He was 17 and crazy, running wild, wild
Can’t remember what song he was playing when we walked in
The night we snuck into a yacht club party
Pretending to be a duchess and a prince

And I said, “Oh my, what a marvelous tune”
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved.
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

He said, “Look at you, worrying so much about things you can’t change
You’ll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way”
He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean, saying to me,
“Don’t you see the starlight, starlight?
Don’t you dream impossible things?”

Like oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

Ooh ooh he’s talking in crazy
Ooh ooh dancing with me
Ooh ooh we could get married
Have ten kids and teach them how to dream

Oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we dream impossible dreams
Like starlight, starlight
Like we dream impossible dreams
Don’t you see the starlight, starlight?
Don’t you dream impossible things?

The Lucky One Lyrics By Taylor Swift

New to town with a made up name in the angel city,
Chasing fortune and fame.
And the camera flashes, make it look like a dream.
You had it figured out since you were in school.
Everybody loves pretty, everybody loves cool.
So overnight you look like a sixties’ queen.

Another name goes up in lights, like diamonds in the sky.

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
But can you tell me now, you’re the lucky one.

Now it’s big black cars, and Riviera views,
And your lover in the foyer doesn’t even know you
And your secrets end up splashed on the news front page.

And they tell you that you’re lucky.
But you’re so confused,
Cause you don’t feel pretty, you just feel used.
And all the young things line up to take your place.

Another name goes up in lights. You wonder if you’ll make it out alive.

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Can you tell me now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh.

It was a few years later, I showed up here.
And they still tell the legend of how you disappeared,
How you took the money and your dignity, and got the hell out.
They say you bought a bunch of land somewhere,
Chose the Rose Garden over Madison Square,
And it took some time, but I understand it now.

‘Cause now my name is up in lights, but I think you got it right,

Let me tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Let me tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Let me tell you now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh.

Yeah they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one.
And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh.
Oh, whoa, oh, oh

Sad Beautiful Tragic Lyrics By Taylor Swift

Long handwritten note deep in your pocket
Words, how little they mean when you’re a little too late
I stood right by the tracks, your face in a locket
Good girls, hopeful they’ll be and long they will wait

We had a beautiful magic love there
What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

In dreams I meet you in warm conversation
We both wake in lonely beds different cities
And time is taking, its sweet time erasing you
And you’ve got your demons, and, darling, they all look like me

‘Cause we had a beautiful magic love there
What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

Distance, timing, breakdown, fighting
Silence, this train runs off its tracks
Kiss me, try to fix it, could you just try to listen?
Hang up, give up, for the life of us we can’t get back

A beautiful magic love there
What a sad beautiful tragic, beautiful tragic, beautiful

What we had ‒ a beautiful magic love affair
What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

We had a beautiful magic love there
What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

Holy Ground Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I was reminiscing just the other day,
While having coffee all alone and Lord, it took me away.
Back to a first-glance feeling on New York time.
Back when you fit in my poems like a perfect rhyme.
Took off faster than a green light, go,
Hey, skip the conversation and you already know.
I left a note on the door with a joke we’d made,
And that was the first day.

And darling, it was good never looking down.
And right there where we stood was holy ground.

Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress,
We had this big wide city all to ourselves.
We blocked the noise with the sound of ‘I need you’,
And for the first time I had something to lose,
Well I guess we fell apart in the usual way.
And the story’s got dust on every page,
Sometimes I wonder how you think about it now.
And I see your face in every crowd.

Cause darling, it was good never looking down.
And right there where we stood was holy ground.

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through.
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.
Tonight I’m gonna dance like you were in this room.
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you,

It was good never looking down.
And right there where we stood was holy ground.

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through.
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.
Tonight I’m gonna dance like you were in this room.
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.

The Last Time (feat. Gary Lightbody) Lyrics By Taylor Swift

[Gary Lightbody:]
Found myself at your door,
Just like all those times before,
I’m not sure how I got there,
All roads they lead me here.

I imagine you are home,
In your room, all alone,
And you open your eyes into mine,
And everything feels better,

[Both:]
Right before your eyes,
I’m breaking, no cause
No reasons why,
Just you and me.

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye.

[Taylor Swift:]
You find yourself at my door,
Just like all those times before,
You wear your best apology,
But I was there to watch you leave,

And all the times I let you in,
Just for you to go again,
Disappear when you come back,
Everything is better.

[Both:]
When right before your eyes,
I’m aching, run fast,
Nowhere to hide,
Just you and me…

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye, eye, eye…

This is the last time you tell me I’ve got it wrong,
This is the last time I say it’s been you all along,
This is the last time I let you in my door,
This is the last time, I won’t hurt you anymore.

Oh, oh, oh,

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye.

This is the last time I’m asking you this, (this is the last time I’m asking you this)
Put my name on the top of your list, (name on the top of your list)
This is the last time I’m asking you why, (this is the last time I’m asking you why)
You break my heart in the blink of an eye. (You break my heart…)

This is the last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you this… [x4]

Stay Stay Stay Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I’m pretty sure we almost broke up last night.
I threw my phone across the room at you.
I was expecting some dramatic turn-away,
but you stayed.

This morning I said we should talk about it.
‘Cause I read you should never leave a fight unresolved.
That’s when you came in wearing a football helmet and said “okay, let’s talk.”

And I said,
Stay, stay, stay.
I’ve been lovin’ you for quite some time, time, time.
You think that it’s funny when I’m mad, mad, mad.
But I think that it’s best if we both stay.

Before you, I’d only dated self-indulgent takers,
that took all of their problems out on me.
But you carry my groceries, and now I’m always laughin’.
And I love you because you have given me no choice but to:

Stay, stay, stay.
I’ve been lovin’ you for quite some time, time, time.
You think that it’s funny when I’m mad, mad, mad.
But I think that it’s best if we both stay, stay, stay, stay.

You took the time to memorize me:
my fears, my hopes, and dreams.
I just like hangin’ out with you, all the time.
All those times that you didn’t leave;
It’s been occurring to me I’d like to hang out with you, for my whole life.

Stay.
And I’ll be loving you for quite some time.
No one else is going to love me, when I get mad, mad mad.
So I think that it’s best if we both stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay.

Stay, stay, stay.
I’ve been lovin’ you for quite some time, time, time.
You think that it’s funny when I’m mad, mad, mad.
But I think that it’s best if we both stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay.

Stay, stay, stay.
I’ve been lovin’ you for quite some time, time, time.
You think that it’s funny when I’m mad, mad, mad.
But I think that it’s best if we both stay.

I Almost Do Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sitting in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city
And I bet sometimes you wonder about me

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know every time I don’t
I almost do
I almost do

I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
Cuz each time you reach out there’s no reply
I bet it never ever occurred to you that I can’t say hello to you
And risk another goodbye

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that every time I don’t
I almost do
I almost do

Oh we made quite a mess babe
It’s probably better off this way
And I confess babe
In my dreams you’re touching my face
And asking me if I want to try again with you
And I almost do

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that every time I don’t
I almost do
I almost do

I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sitting in your chair by the window looking out at the city
And I hope sometimes you wonder about me

22 Lyrics By Taylor Swift

It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes, ah ah. ah ah.
It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers, ah ah. ah ah.

Yeeeah,
We’re happy free confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about the deadlines
It’s time

Oh oh!
I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re
22
22

It seems like one of those nights,
This place is too crowded.
Too many cool kids. ah ah. ah ah.
(who’s Taylor Swift anyway? ugh)
It seems like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene and end up dreaming
Instead of sleeping.

Yeeeah,
We’re happy free confused and lonely in the best way
It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about the heartbreaks
It’s time

Oh oh!
I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re
22
22
I don’t know about you
22
22

It feels like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene
It feels like one of those nights,
We won’t be sleeping
It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re
22
22
22
22

It feels like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene
It feels like one of those nights,
We won’t be sleeping
It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

All Too Well Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I walked through the door with you, the air was cold
But something about it felt like home somehow
And I left my scarf there at your sister’s house
And you still got it in your drawer, even now

Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze
We’re singing in the car getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place
And I can picture it after all these days

And I know it’s long gone
And that magic’s not here no more
And I might be okay
But I’m not fine at all

‘Cause there we are again, on that little town street
You almost ran the red ’cause you were looking over me
Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well

Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bed
Your mother’s telling stories about you on the tee ball team
You tell me about your past, thinking your future was me

And I know it’s long gone
And there’s nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to

‘Cause there we are again, in the middle of the night
We’re dancing around the kitchen in the refrigerator light
Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all to well

And maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece ’til you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well

And you call me up again just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
‘Cause I remember it all, all, all too well

Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it
I’d like to be my old self again, but I’m still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone

But you keep my old scarf from that very first week
‘Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me
You can’t get rid of it ’cause you remember it all too well, yeah

‘Cause there we are again, when I loved you so
Back before you lost the one real thing you’ve ever known
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all
Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

Treacherous Lyrics By Taylor Swift

Put your lips close to mine
As long as they don’t touch
Out of focus, eye to eye
Till the gravity’s too much
And I’ll do anything you say
If you say it with your hands
And I’d be smart to walk away, but you’re quicksand

This slope is treacherous
This path is reckless
This slope is treacherous
And I, I, I like it

I can’t decide if it’s a choice
Getting swept away
I hear the sound of my own voice
Asking you to stay
And all we are is skin and bone trained to get along
Forever going with the flow, but you’re friction

This slope is treacherous
This path is reckless
This slope is treacherous
And I, I, I like it

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night
And I will get you, get you alone
Your name has echoed through my mind
And I just think you should, think you should know
That nothing safe is worth the drive I will
Follow you, follow you home…
I’ll follow you, follow you home…

This hope is treacherous
This daydream is dangerous
This hope is treacherous
I, I, I… I, I, I… I, I, I…

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night
And I will get you, get you alone
Your name has echoed through my mind
And I just think you should, think you should know
That nothing safe is worth the drive I will
Follow you, follow you home…
I’ll follow you, follow you home…
I’ll follow you, follow you home…
I’ll follow you, follow you home…

This slope is treacherous
I, I, I like it

State Of Grace Lyrics By Taylor Swift

I’m walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know, is touch and go
We are alone with our changing minds
We fall in love ’til it hurts or bleeds or fades in time

And I never (never) saw you coming
And I’ll never (ever) be the same

You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannon ball
Now all we know is don’t let go
We are alone, just you and me
Up in your room and our slates are clean
Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes

So you were never a saint
And I love the shades of wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mostly of broken hearts
But this love is raging wild

And I never (never) saw you coming
And I’ll never (ever) be the same

This is a state of grace
This is the worthwhile fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You’re my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good and right and real

And I never (never) saw you coming
And I’ll never (ever) be the same
And I never (never) saw you coming
And I’ll never (ever) be the same

This is a state of grace
This is the worthwhile fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right

Red Lyrics By Taylor Swift

[Verse 1:]
Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all

[Chorus:]
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

[Verse 2:]
Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong

[Chorus:]
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Oh red
Burning red

[Bridge:]
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it’s time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible
When I still see it all in my head
Burning red
Loving him was red

[Chorus:]
Oh losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
‘Cause loving him was red
Yeah, yeah red
We’re burning red

[Post-Chorus:]
And that’s why he’s spinnin’ ’round in my head
Comes back to me, burning red
Yeah, yeah
His love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
