  • We're all bored, we're all so tired of everything
    We wait for trains that just aren't comin'
    We show off our different scarlet letters
    Trust me, mine is better
    We're so young but we're on the road to ruin
    We play dumb but we know exactly what we're doin'
    We cry tears of mascara in the bathroom
    Honey, life is just a classroom
    (Ah, ah, ah)

    'Cause, baby, I could build a castle
    Out of all the bricks they threw at me
    And every day is like a battle
    But every night with us is like a dream
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    Come on, come along with me
    Heartbreak is the national anthem
    We sing it proudly
    We are too busy dancin'
    To get knocked off our feet
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    The best people in life are free

    We're all here, the lights and noise are blinding
    We hang back, it's all in the timing
    It's poker, he can't see it in my face
    But I'm about to play my Ace
    We need love, but all we want is danger
    We team up then switch sides like a record changer
    The rumors are terrible and cruel
    But, honey, most of them are true
    (Ah, ah, ah)

    'Cause, baby, I could build a castle
    Out of all the bricks they threw at me
    And every day is like a battle
    But every night with us is like a dream
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    Come on, come along with me
    Heartbreak is the national anthem
    We sing it proudly
    We are too busy dancin'
    To get knocked off our feet
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    The best people in life are free

    So come on, come along with me
    The best people in life are free

    Please take my hand and
    Please take me dancin' and
    Please leave me stranded
    It's so romantic (it's so romantic)
    (Ah, ah, ah)

    Oh, 'cause baby, I could build a castle
    Out of all the bricks they threw at me
    And every day is like a battle
    But every night with us is like a dream
    'Cause, baby, I could build a castle (castle)
    Out of all the bricks they threw at me
    And every day is like a battle
    But every night with us is like a dream
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    Come on, come along with me
    Heartbreak is the national anthem
    We sing it proudly
    We are too busy dancin'
    To get knocked off our feet
    Baby, we're the new romantics
    The best people in life are free Writer/s: Johan Karl Schuster, Max Martin, Taylor Alison Swift
