Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble lyrics

[Verse 1]
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.

[Pre-Chorus]
And he's long gone when he's next to me,
And I realize the blame is on me.

[Chorus]
Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
So shame on me now.
Flew me to places I've never been,
So 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

[Verse 2]
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 drowni-i-i-ing
.
Now 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-e-e-e
.

[Pre-Chorus]
He was long gone when he met me,
And I realize the joke is on me, hey!

[Chorus]
I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
So shame on me now
.
Flew me to places I've never been,
So 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

[Bridge]
And the saddest fear comes creeping in,
That you never loved me,
Or her, or anyone, or anything

Yeah!

[Chorus]
I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
So shame on me now
.
Flew me to places I've never been,
So you put me down, oh.
I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
(You were right there, you were right there)
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

[Outro]
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 isn't about Harry Styles. The album RED was released on November 2012. Harry and Taylor made their relationship official on December 2012. Why the hell would she write about someone he has not yet dated? This song could possibly have been about John Mayer, that explains the tattoos in the music video. Ans also it is true that she likes writing about her relationships, but so what? It her way of expressing the feeling she felt during that time.

    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 didn't 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 don't see why I am a Z- swagger and a directiomer and I love Katy Perrys music. That's who you should listen to not Taylor seift.

    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?
