Taylor Swift I Knew You Were Trouble Terrible Song LyricsThis weeks terrible song lyrics of the week are from Taylor Swifts song I Knew You Were Trouble.  It is from her fourth studio album, Red (2012). It was released on October 9, 2012, in the United States by Big Machine Records as the third promotional single from the album.

Which part of the lyrics are terrible you ask?  ALL OF THEM and here is why.

After going through her lyrics I was wondering if I should call the police or not.  After reading the first part of her lyrics..

Once upon time
A few mistakes ago
I was in your sights
You got me alone
You found me
You found me
You found me

I thought “OH NO!  Taylor Swift has been raped before!  Or kidnapped!  I don’t know which one but it sure sounds like the beginning of a raping or kidnapping!”

Then..

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

Sounds like he then hits her.  To pull off a successful kidnap or rape you need to hit something and apparently it was Taylor Swift and she liked it.

And he’s long gone
When he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me

She says he is long gone now so now I’m suspecting a rape at this point because to kidnap you need to bring the kidnapee with you.  I’m still confused but then..

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

FUCK!  Ok now I’m suspecting a kidnapping again because now he is flying her to places she has never been.  Solid kidnap move.

No apologies
He’ll never see you cry
Pretend he doesn’t know
That he’s the reason why
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning

Just completely lost at this point.  The rest of the lyrics go on.

And 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

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

When your sadest 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’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

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

My conclusion is that this is a raping/kidnapping/but not really…kind of thing.  If Taylor Swift wouldn’t be such a drama queen she would have just gotten to the point at the beginning of the song and not fucked around.

So this leaves everyone around the world wondering, IS THIS A RAPING OR A KIDNAPPING TAYLOR SWIFT?!?!?!? WHICH IS IT?!?
