Taylor Swift – Bad Blood lyrics

[Chorus]
Cause baby now we've got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done
Cause baby now we've got bad blood, hey!
Now we've got problems
And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut
And baby now we've got bad blood, hey
!

[Verse 1]
Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted

Did you have to ruin
What was shiny, now it's all rusted

Did you have to hit me
Where I'm weak, baby I couldn't breathe
And rub it in so deep
Salt in the wound like you're laughing right at me


[Pre-Chorus]
Oh it's so sad to think about the good times
You and I


[Chorus]
Cause baby now we've got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done
Cause baby now we've got bad blood, hey!
Now we've got problems
And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut
And baby now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 2]
Did you think we'd be fine
Still got scars in my back from your knives
So don't think it's in the past
These kind of wounds they last and they last
Now did you think it all through
?
All these things will catch up to you
In time can heal but this won't
So if you come in my way
Just don't


[Pre-Chorus]
Oh it's so sad to think about the good times
You and I

[Chorus]
Cause baby now we've got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
Cause baby now we've got bad blood, hey!
Now we've got problems
And I don't think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Bridge]
Band aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show

If you live like that, you live with ghosts
If you live like that you live with bad blood
Band aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts

If you love like that blood runs cold

[Chorus]
Cause baby now we've got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done
Cause baby now we've got bad blood, hey!
Now we've got problems
And I don't think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Chorus]
Cause baby now we've got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
Cause baby now we've got bad blood, hey!
Now we've got problems
And I don't think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we've got bad blood, hey
!

    Damn it people are dumb... There are two versions of the song but Taylor didn't like the one with the lyrics above so she got Kendrick to rap in it. These lyrics are right and no one is correcting anyone... Jesus where are the people who know things? Cause they're obviously not here.

    I think this song is about how Taylor and Katy have some kind of fight and they have a bad relationship with each other. And Arysn is obviously not Katy Perry. Not meant for people who know but those people who think Arysn is Katy Perry cos' she has black hair like Arsyn. Selena Gomez wore a wig, people. But the beat and the rhythm goes well together and I love the lyrics. But I thought there was a part where a guy raps?

    Basically since the whole Katy Perry trying to buy people who are supposed to work with Taylor while she's on tour sabotage issue, Taylor's just stating "I thought we had a connection, but now since you're trying to sabotage my tour by buying people from under me, we're just not cool."

    Bullet holes really, really hurt. Shoot someone that you love in the heart and you break two hearts. It's only because the "mad love" was so good that the prospect of solving these problems is possible. But it is possible. In the hope that a sincere sorry may be heard.

    The video for this song is merely an example of grasping at straws. When only $$$ thrown at video production and set in extravagant costumes with featured celebrities/rapper, etc is the only possible chance they had for this lyrically deficient song to capture the attention and hook our culturally dumbed-down society.
