I Did Something Bad

Album: Reputation (2017)
  • I never trust a narcissist
    But they love me
    So I play 'em like a violin
    And I make it look oh so easy
    'Cause for every lie I tell them
    They tell me three
    This is how the world works
    Now all he thinks about is me

    I can feel the flames on my skin
    Crimson red paint on my lips
    If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing
    I don't regret it one bit, 'cause he had it coming

    They say I did something bad
    Then why's it feel so good?
    They say I did something bad
    But why's it feel so good?
    Most fun I ever had
    And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could
    It just felt so good, good

    I never trust a playboy
    But they love me
    So I fly him all around the world
    And I let them think they saved me
    They never see it comin'
    What I do next
    This is how the world works
    You gotta leave before you get left

    I can feel the flames on my skin
    He says, "Don't throw away a good thing"
    But if he drops my name, then I owe him nothin'
    And if he spends my change, then he had it comin'

    They say I did something bad
    Then why's it feel so good?
    They say I did something bad
    But why's it feel so good?
    Most fun I ever had
    And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could
    It just felt so good, good

    It just felt so good

    They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one
    They got their pitchforks and proof
    Their receipts and reasons
    They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one
    So light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)
    Light me up, go ahead and light me up (light me up)
    Light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)
    Light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)

    They say I did something bad
    Then why's it feel so good?
    They say I did something bad
    But why's it feel so good?
    Most fun I ever had
    And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could
    It just felt so good, good

    Oh, you say I did something bad
    Then why's it feel so good, good?
    So bad, why's it feel so good?
    Why's it feel, why's it feel so good? (Bad)
    It just felt so good, good Writer/s: KARL JOHAN SCHUSTER, MAX MARTIN, TAYLOR SWIFT
