  • Nice to meet you, where you been?
    I could show you incredible things
    Magic, madness, heaven and sin
    Saw you there and I thought
    Oh my God, look at that face
    You look like my next mistake
    Love's a game, do you want to play?
    New money, suit and tie
    I can read you like a magazine
    Ain't it funny, rumors fly?
    And I know you heard about me
    So hey, let's be friends
    Dying to see how this one ends
    Grab your passport and my hand

    So it's gonna be forever
    Or it's gonna go down in flames
    You can tell me when it's over
    If the high was worth the pain
    Got a long list of ex-lovers
    They'll tell you I'm insane
    'Cause you know I love the players
    And you love the game

    So goddamn reckless
    We'll take this way too far
    It'll leave you breathless
    Or with a nasty scar
    Got a long list of ex-lovers
    They'll tell you I'm insane
    But I've got a blank space, baby
    And I'll write your name

    Cherry lips, crystal skies
    I could show you incredible things
    Stolen kisses, pretty lies
    I'm your king and you're my queen
    Find out what you want
    Be that girl for a month
    Wait, the worst is yet to come
    Screaming, crying, perfect storms
    I can make all the tables turn
    Rose gardens filled with thorns
    Keep you second-guessing like
    "Oh my God, who is she?"
    I get drunk on jealousy
    But you'll come back each time you leave

    So it's gonna be forever
    Or it's gonna go down in flames
    You can tell me when it's over
    If the high was worth the pain
    Got a long list of ex-lovers
    They'll tell you I'm insane
    'Cause you know I love the players
    And you love the game

    So goddamn reckless
    We'll take this way too far
    It'll leave you breathless
    Or with a nasty scar
    Got a long list of ex-lovers
    They'll tell you I'm insane
    But I've got a blank space, baby
    And I'll write your name

    I'll write your name
    I'll write your name
    I'll write your name Writer/s: Johan Karl Schuster, Max Martin, Taylor Alison Swift
