Taylor Swift I Knew You Were Trouble
FameFlynet(4)

Taylor Swift debuted her new single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ during the Oct. 8 episode of ‘Good Morning America.’ Read the lyrics and tell us who YOU think it’s about!

Let the speculation begin! Taylor Swift loves to name names in her songs, but her latest single, “I Knew You Were Trouble” is very mysterious! She even takes the blame for dating this unnamed person. Who could it be about? What do YOU think?

Taylor has been in high-profile romances with John, Chord OverstreetJake Gyllenhall and Joe Jonas in the last few years and had lesser-known flings with Cory Monteith, Mark Foster of Foster The People and Will Anderson, the lead singer in the band Parachute.

In the past, “Dear John” has trashed John Mayer, “Forever and Always” explained her relationship with Joe Jonas, while “Back To December” was an apology for Taylor Lautner.

Which person do you think “I Knew You Were Trouble” is about?

“When I was coming up with the name for this album, it was crazy because it was really simple. I wrote a song called ‘Red’ and thinking about what that means to me and all the different emotions that are written about on this album, they are all pretty much about the tumultuous, crazy, insane, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years and all those emotions spanning from intense love to intense frustration, jealous, confusion, all of that, in my mind, all those emotions are red. There is nothing beige about any of those feelings,” Taylor explained.

Read the lyrics below and tell us what YOU think, HollywoodLifers? VOTE below!

Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago,
I was in your sights, you got me all alone.

You found me.
You found me.
You found me.

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

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’d 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’d 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

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.

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

Chorus
I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d 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’d 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, yeaaaa.

Chorus
I knew you were trouble when you walked in,
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been,
So you put me down.
Oh I knew you were trouble when you walked in (knew right there x2).
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d 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

she’s really not a country singer… can’t understand why she’s nominated and won so many awards that should have went to other proper country singers.

guys! just leave her alone! she just writes what she feels and maybe some of her songs isn’t inspired by her relationship, maybe some fans or friends shared their experience with her and she wrote a song about it! jeez, no need to go ‘who does she means?’ facts on, Taylor Swift is amazing, her songs are wonderful and she’s a human who have feelings. so stop the critics! she’s amazing and that’s that.

Too bad that’s not even the lyrics. You obviously didn’t even read them or listen to the song clip because if you did you’d know that those lyrics are for a Dixie chicks song and they don’t even match the lyrics in the song clip. Try actually researching stuff before you post about it instead of just copying and pasting some lyrics you found on google and attaching a video.

Her songs are good, but she needs to grow up and stop singing about past loves that went sour.
