Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me
You found me
You found me-e-e-e-e

I guess you didn't care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back

Without me, without me, without me-e-e-e-e

And he's long gone when he's next to me
And I realize the blame is on me

Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, he'll never see you cry
Pretends he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
You're drowning
You're drowning
You're drowning


I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be
And now I see
Now I see
Now I see
Eeee


He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, hey

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you never loved me
Or her
Or anyone
Or anything

Yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now

Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

    This song is not about Harry, she wrote it in 2011. And 75% of her songs are not about breakups. You guys are much more immature than she'll ever be. You act like she's the only one who writes about her relationships, when in reality, it's everyone.

    I personally think that, like most girls, she was going through a tough time when she met a "bad guy" who was after one thing and when he got tired of her or saw something newer he went for that.. seems as if he is the type of guy that wants one thing from girl because he isn't quite ready to settle down into a "I'm in love" type of relationship so right now he is playing the field and maybe she thought he was changing for her since he was most likely telling her everything she wanted to hear to keep her hanging on

    I don't like Taylor Swift. I am a Swifter. She is so immature! She already wrote 5 songs about Harry Styles right when they broke up. And her new Music Video he dressed like Harry. With his low cut man-boots, his greenish beenie, his white fitted shirt, and tight black jeans. She is totally obssessed with him. And the stupid part is that--> She was the one that messed up saying--> " I miss you Conner. Can't wait to see you soon" like C'mon??

    Taylor is a bad person she embarassed my Harry Styles i agree with you Jasmaine she is obsessed with him. She made it too obvious shes had like alot of boyfriends and her songs are either abouther life or her break ups with boyfriends i mean really? Just grow up if she didnt have any boyfriends she wouldnt be making mudic right now and she wouldnt be popular either but she should just stop making music altogether i have friends who love her but i dont see why i am a Z- swagger and a directiomer and i love Katy Perrys music. Thats who you should listen to not Taylor seift
