...Ready For It?

  • Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him
    Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted
    But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom
    Holdin' him for ransom
    Some, some boys are tryin' too hard
    He don't try at all, though
    Younger than my exes but he act like such a man, so
    I see nothing better, I keep him forever
    Like a vendetta-ta

    I-I-I see how this is gon' go
    Touch me and you'll never be alone
    I-Island breeze and lights down low
    No one has to know

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    You should see the things we do, baby
    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So I take my time
    Are you ready for it?

    Me, I was a robber first time that he saw me
    Stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry
    But if I'm a thief, then he can join the heist
    And we'll move to an island-and
    And he can be my jailer, Burton to this Taylor
    Every lover known in comparison is a failure
    I forget their names now, I'm so very tame now
    Never be the same now, now

    I-I-I see how this is gon' go
    Touch me and you'll never be alone
    I-Island breeze and lights down low
    No one has to know
    (No one has to know)

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    You should see the things we do, baby
    In the middle of the night in my dreams
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So I take my time
    Are you ready for it?
    Ooh, are you ready for it?

    Baby, let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Baby, let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Let the games begin

    I-I-I see how this is gon' go
    Touch me and you'll never be alone
    I-Island breeze and lights down low
    No one has to know

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    You should see the things we do, baby
    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So I take my time
    In the middle of the night

    Baby, let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Are you ready for it?
    Baby, let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Let the games begin
    Are you ready for it? Writer/s: Ali Payami, Karl Johan Schuster, Max Martin, Taylor Swift
