1 I don't like your little games. Don't like your tilted stage. The role you made me play. Of the fool, no, I don't like you. I don't like your perfect crime. How you laugh when you lie. You said the gun was mine. Isn't cool, no, I don't like you.
Why? Because it's bold and in your face. There are evil people, liars, and cheaters all around. I love that this song slams and mocks them. I also believe there's another layer to this song: that she's subtly attacking the corrupt music industry and the elite's controlling everything. Even if that's not an underlying motive, that's what I see in it. Screw the establishment and all their lies. I love this song.
I don't know why this is the top spot? the lyrics is from one of her worse songs. It might be her most famous of the album, but it shouldn't be number one, now Call It What You Want is a great song.
2 I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead!
This one creeped me out actually
First quote that comes to your mind seeing the new taylor (which is better than the old)
Should be on everyones screensavers lol
3 The ties were black, the lies were white, in shades of gray and candlelight.
This deserves better than the top spot right now...
4 I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me. I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams.
5 If a man talks s***, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit ’cause he had it comin’.
Ok this has to be some of the worst lyrics I've ever read.
6 Here’s a toast to my real friends. They don’t care about the he said, she said.
7 They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one. So, light me up.
8 My reputation’s never been worse, so you must like me for me…
9 I’m yours to keep and I’m yours to lose.
10 Even in my worst light, you saw the truth in me.
11 But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time. Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time.
Is anyone else wondering if that "long list of ex lovers" is apart of that list of names?
12 Therein lies the issue, friends don't try to trick you, get you on the phone and mind-twist you
13 But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom, holding him for ransom
14 Here's to my momma, had to listen to all this drama
15 Say, Say that we got it I’m a mess but I’m this mess that you wanted. Oh, ‘cause it’s gravity oh, keeping you with me
From Dancing with our hands tied
16 Deep blue, but you painted me golden
17 So baby can we dance through an avalanche
