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

    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

    'Cause we're young and we're 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
    You're the king baby I'm your Queen
    Find out what you want
    Be that girl for a month
    Wait the worst is yet to come, oh no
    Screaming, crying, perfect storm
    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
    'Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream

    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

    'Cause we're young and we're 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 (Insane)
    But I've got a blank space baby
    And I'll write your name

    Boys only want love if it's torture
    Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn ya
    Boys only want love if it's torture
    Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn ya

    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

    'Cause we're young and we're 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 Writer/s: Max Martin, Johan Karl Schuster, Taylor Alison Swift

  • Christian from 98658I love this song
  • Katie from Portland, OrI think this song is funny and awesome. You can tell that she's playing off of her dear friend, Lorde. I love Taylor's songwriting and as a team, they are incredible. I know that she acts as her own manager, which is jaw-dropping to me. I also heard Starbucks lovers!
  • Linda from Oakland, Ca, UsaI liked this song the first time I heard it. I thought she was saying "Starbucks lovers" too. Taylor does have a knack for creating catchy songs. Who knows how much of it is her and how much is Max Martin and Shellback though.
