  • See you in the dark
    All eyes on you, my magician
    All eyes on us
    You make everyone disappear, and
    Cut me into pieces
    Gold cage, hostage to my feelings
    Back against the wall
    Trippin', trip-trippin' when you're gone

    'Cause we break down a little
    And when you get me alone, it's so simple
    'Cause baby, I know what you know
    We can feel it

    And our pieces fall
    Right into place
    Get caught up in the moments
    Lipstick on your face
    So it goes
    I'm yours to keep
    And I'm yours to lose
    You know I'm not a bad girl, but I
    Do bad things with you
    So it goes

    Met you in a bar
    All eyes on me, your illusion is
    All eyes on us
    I make all your grey days clear and
    Wear you like a necklace
    I'm so chill, but you make me jealous
    But I got your heart
    Skippin', skip-skippin' when I'm gone

    'Cause we break down a little
    And when you get me alone, it's so simple
    'Cause baby, I know what you know
    We can feel it

    And our pieces fall
    Right into place
    Get caught up in the moments
    Lipstick on your face
    So it goes
    I'm yours to keep
    And I'm yours to lose
    You know I'm not a bad girl, but I
    Do bad things with you
    So it goes

    Come here, dressed in black now
    So, so, so it goes
    Scratches down your back now
    So, so, so it goes

    You did a number on me
    But, honestly, baby, who's counting?
    I did a number on you
    But, honestly, baby, who's counting?
    You did a number on me
    But, honestly, baby, who's counting?
    Who's counting?
    1, 2, 3

    And our pieces fall (pieces)
    Right into place
    Get caught up in the moments (caught up, caught up)
    Lipstick on your face
    So it goes
    I'm yours to keep (oh)
    And I'm yours to lose (baby)
    You know I'm not a bad girl, but I
    Do bad things with you
    So it goes

    Come here, dressed in black now
    So, so, so it goes
    Scratches down your back now
    So, so, so it goes
    Come here, dressed in black now
    So, so, so it goes
    Scratches down your back now
    So, so, so it goes Writer/s: Karl Johan Schuster, Max Martin, Oscar Gorres, Taylor Swift
