Taylor Swift – Blank Space lyrics

[Verse:]
Nice to meet you, where you've been?
I could show you incredible things

Magic, madness, heaven, sin
Saw you there and I thought
Oh my God, look at that face
You look like my next mistake

Love's a game, wanna play?
New money, suit & tie
I can read you like a magazine

Ain't it funny, rumors, fly
And I know you heard about me

So hey, let's be friends
I'm dying to see how this one ends

Grab your passport and my hand
I can make the bad guys good for a weekend


[Pre-Chorus:]
So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game


[Chorus:]
Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far

It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane

But I've got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name


[Verse 2:]
Cherry lips, crystal skies
I could show you incredible things

Stolen kisses, pretty lies
You're the King, baby, I'm your Queen
Find out what you want
Be that girl for a month
Wait the worst is yet to come, oh no

Screaming, crying, perfect storms
I can make all the tables turn

Rose garden filled with thorns
Keep you second guessing like
"Oh my God, who is she?"
I get drunk on jealousy

But you'll come back each time you leave
Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream


[Pre-Chorus:]
So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane

Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game


[Chorus:]
Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I've got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name


[Bridge:]
Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn ya


[Bridge:]
Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn ya
(say I didn't warn ya~!)

[Pre-Chorus:]
So it's gonna be forever (Oh, oh!)
Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane (Insane!)
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game
(And you love the game~!)

[Chorus:]
Cause we're young and we're reckless (No, oh!)
We'll take this way too far
(Ooo, ooo, ooo!)
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
(Or with a nasty scar!)
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane

But I've got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name

    Blank space is not about any of her past relationships, or her "trust issues", this song isn't even really about her. It's about how the media is portraying her as a crazy jealousy junky bitch who uses men over and over for relationships that always wind up in a song. This song has nothing to do with her past relationships or anything like that, this song is about how the world is seeing her for somethig that she's not. And by everyone just assuming that it's about some ex that we've never been informed about is just proving exactly what she's saying in the song.

    Blank space is not really about Taylor Swift or her relationships but about the media and what they say or think about her. They make her seem like a crazy, jealous person who uses men. The media always says she crazy so she did this song to show how crazy she can really be.

    This is about how everyone assumes things about her, like Shake it Off. They say she uses boys, has 'stolen kisses and pretty lies 'only to make him think that 'your the King baby I'm your Queen.' If you watch the music video it shows you this cycle - she meets the guy, could show him 'incredible things' they fall in love, but he is cheating and they fight repeatedly and Taylor gets her revenge - then another guy comes and the cycle supposedly repeats.

    The song tells that she needs the true love in she is searching in every boy and she is having a blank space for her real and true love to whom she can trust for her whole life n as she was in search she notice that the boys are playing games with her relationship.

    I do heard about this song before, but I have no time to listen what was it all about. But now, I'm hearing it again, it felt like it was near to me because people always said that I am a player, just because of I have a lot of ex. And now I'm starting to love this song and will put this song into my Zune's playlist. Its a story of life!
