This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things Lyric – Taylor Swift

This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

 

Verse 1
It was so nice throwing big parties
Jump into the pool from the balcony
Everyone swimming in a champagne sea
And there are no rules when you show up here
Bass beat rattling the chandelier
Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year

Pre-Chorus
So why’d you have to rain on my parade?
I’m shaking my head and locking the gates

Chorus

This is why we can’t have nice things, darling
Because you break them
I had to take them away
This is why we can’t have nice things, honey
Did you think I wouldn’t hear all the things you said about me?
This is why we can’t have nice things

Verse 2

It was so nice being friends again
There I was, giving you a second chance
But then you stabbed in the back while shaking my hand
And therein lies the issue
Friends don’t try to trick you
Get you on the phone and mind-twist you
And so I took an axe to a mended fence

Pre-Chorus
But I’m not the only friend you’ve lost lately
If only you weren’t so shady

Chorus

This is why we can’t have nice things, darling
Because you break them
I had to take them away
This is why we can’t have nice things, honey
Did you think I wouldn’t hear all the things you said about me?
This is why we can’t have-

Bridge

Here’s a toast to my real friends
They don’t care about the he-said-she-said
And here’s to my baby
He ain’t reading what they call me lately
And here’s to my momma
Had to listen to all this drama
And here’s to you
‘Cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do
Haha, I can’t even say it with a straight face

Chorus { …… }

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

Call it what you want Lyrics – Taylor Swift

Call it what you want

 

Verse 1
My castle crumbled overnight
I brought a knife to a gunfight
They took the crown, but it’s alright
All the liars are calling me one
Nobody’s heard from me for months
I’m doin’ better than I ever was
‘Cause
Chorus
My baby’s fit like a daydream
Walking with his head down
I’m the one he’s walking to
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
My baby’s fly like a jet stream
High above the whole scene
Loves me like I’m brand new
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to

Verse 2

All my flowers grew back as thorns
Windows boarded up after the storm
He built a fire just to keep me warm
All the drama queens taking swings
All the jokers dressing up as kings
They fade to nothing when I look at him
And I know I make the same mistakes every time
Bridges burn, I never learn
At least I did one thing right
I did one thing right
I’m laughing with my lover, makin’ forts under covers
Trust him like a brother
Yeah, you know I did one thing right
Starry eyes sparkin’ up my darkest night

Chorus

My baby’s fit like a daydream
Walking with his head down
I’m the one he’s walking to
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
My baby’s fly like a jet stream
High above the whole scene
Loves me like I’m brand new

So call it what you want, yeah
Call… it what you …want to

Bridge

I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck
Chain round my neck
Not because he owns me
But ’cause he really knows me
Which is more than they can say, I…
I recall late November
Holdin’ my breath, slowly I said
“You don’t need to save me
But would you run away with me?”
Yes (would you run away?)

Chorus

Outro
Cal it what you want, call it [ 9x ]
Call it what you want

Dancing With Our Hands Tied Lyrics – Taylor Swift

Dancing With Our Hands Tied

 

Verse 1
I, I loved you in secret
First sight, yeah, we love without reason
Oh, twenty-five years old
Oh, how were you to know? And
My, my love had been frozen
Deep blue, but you painted me golden
Oh, and you held me close
Oh, how was I to know? I–

Pre-Chorus
Could’ve spent forever with your hands in my pockets
Picture of your face in an invisible locket
You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
I had a bad feeling
And darling, you had turned my bed into a sacred oasis
People started talking, putting us through our paces
I knew there was no one in the world who could take it
I had a bad feeling

Chorus
But we were dancing
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
Yeah, we were dancing
Like it was the first time, first time
Yeah, we were dancing
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
Yeah, we were dancing
And I had a bad feeling
But we were dancing

Verse 2
I, I loved you in spite of
Deep fears that the world would divide us
So, baby, can we dance?
Oh, through an avalanche? And
Say, say that we got it
I’m a mess, but I’m the mess that you wanted
Oh, ’cause it’s gravity
Oh, keeping you with me, I–

Pre-Chorus
Could’ve spent forever with your hands in my pockets
Picture of your face in an invisible locket
You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
I had a bad feeling

Chorus
But we were dancing
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
Yeah, we were dancing
Like it was the first time, first time
Yeah, we were dancing
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
Yeah, we were dancing
(Knew we had our hands tied)
And I had a bad feeling
But we were dancing

Bridge

I’d kiss you as the lights went out
Swaying as the room burned down
I’d hold you as the water rushes in
If I could dance with you again
I’d kiss you as the lights went out
Swaying as the room burned down
I’d hold you as the water rushes in
If I could dance with you again
(Again!)

Outro
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
(Oh) Yeah, we were dancing
Like it was the first time, first time
Yeah, we were dancing (oh!)
Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
(Dancing with our hands tied)
Yeah, we were dancing
And I had a bad feeling (had a bad feeling)
But we were dancing
Hands tied, hands tied

King Of My Heart Lyrics – Taylor Swift – Pop Music

King Of My Heart

 

Verse 1
I’m perfectly fine, I live on my own
I made up my mind, I’m better off bein’ alone
We met a few weeks ago
Now you try on callin’ me baby, like tryin’ on clothes

Pre-Chorus
Salute to me, I’m your American Queen
And you move to me like I’m a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room
‘Cause all the boys and their expensive cars
With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars
Never took me quite where you do

Chorus
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

Post-Chorus
And all at once, I’ve been waiting, waiting
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting, waiting
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Verse 2

Late in the night, the city’s asleep
Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep
Change my priorities
The taste of your lips is my idea of luxury

Pre-Chorus
Salute to me, I’m your American Queen
And you move to me like I’m a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room
(Inside my room, oh)
‘Cause all the boys and their expensive cars
With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars
Never took me quite where you do (where you do)

Chorus
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

Post-Chorus

And all at once, I’ve been waiting, waiting
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting (waiting), waiting (waiting)
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Bridge

Is the end of all the endings?
My broken bones are mending
With all these nights we’re spending
Up on the roof with a school girl crush
Drinking beer out of plastic cups
Say you fancy me, not fancy stuff
Baby, all at once, this is enough

Chorus
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart (my heart), body, and soul (my soul), ooh whoa

Post-Chorus
And all at once, I’ve been waiting, waiting
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa (ooh whoa)
And all at once, ’cause you’re the one I have been waiting, waiting
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Gateway Car Lyrics – Taylor Swift – Music Pop

Gateway Car

 

Intro
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Verse 1
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
I struck a match and blew your mind
But I didn’t mean it
And you didn’t see it
The ties were black, the lies were white
In shades of gray in candlelight
I wanted to leave him
I needed a reason

Pre-Chorus
X marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, I was lyin’ to myself
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
We never had a shotgun shot in the dark
(Oh!)

Chorus
You were drivin’ the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin’ in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
I shoulda known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

Verse 2

It was the great escape, the prison break
The light of freedom on my face
But you weren’t thinkin’
And I was just drinkin’
Well, he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, “Go, go, go!”
But with three of us, honey, it’s a sideshow
And a circus ain’t a love story
And now we’re both sorry (we’re both sorry)

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge

We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (oh-oh)
Until I switched to the other side
To the other si-i-i-i-ide
It’s no surprise I turned you in (oh-oh)
‘Cause us traitors never win
I’m in a getaway car
I left you in a motel bar
Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys
That was the last time you ever saw me
(Oh!)

Chorus

Outro
I was ridin’ in a getaway car [ 3x ]
Said goodbye in a getaway car
Ridin’ in a getaway car
I was cryin’ in a getaway car [ 2x ]
Said goodbye in a getaway car

Gorgeous Lyrics – Taylor Swift – Music Pop

Gorgeous

Verse 1
You should take it as a compliment
That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk
You should think about the consequence
Of your magnetic field being a little too strong
And I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us
He’s in the club doing I don’t know what
You’re so cool, it makes me hate you so much
(I hate you so much)

Pre-Chorus 1
Whiskey on ice, Sunset and Vine
You’ve ruined my life by not being mine

Chorus
You’re so gorgeous
I can’t say anything to your face
‘Cause look at your face
And I’m so furious
At you for making me feel this way
But what can I say?
You’re gorgeous

Verse 2

You should take it as a compliment
That I’m talking to everyone here but you
And you should think about the consequence
Of you touching my hand in a darkened room
If you’ve got a girlfriend, I’m jealous of her
But if you’re single that’s honestly worse
‘Cause you’re so gorgeous it actually hurts
(Honey, it hurts)

Pre-Chorus 2
Ocean blue eyes looking in mine
I feel like I might sink and drown and die

Chorus

Bridge
You make me so happy it turns back to sad
There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
And you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah
There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats
Alone
Unless you wanna come along

Chorus

Outro
You make me so happy it turns back to sad
There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
And you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
You’re gorgeous
You make me so happy it turns back to sad
There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
You’re gorgeous

So It Goes Lyrics – Taylor Swift – Music Pop

So It Goes

 

Verse 1
See you in the dark
All eyes on you, my magician
All eyes on us
You make everyone disappear, and
Cut me into pieces
Gold cage, hostage to my feelings
Back against the wall
Trippin’, trip-trippin’ when you’re gone

Pre-Chorus

‘Cause we break down a little
But when you get me alone, it’s so simple
‘Cause baby, I know what you know
We can feel it

Chorus

And all our pieces fall
Right into place
Get caught up in a moment
Lipstick on your face
So it goes…
I’m yours to keep
And I’m yours to lose
You know I’m not a bad girl, but I
Do bad things with you
So it goes…

Verse 2

Met you in a bar
All eyes on me, your illusionist
All eyes on us
I make all your grey days clear
And wear you like a necklace
I’m so chill, but you make me jealous
But I got your heart
Skippin’, skip-skippin’ when I’m gone

Pre-Chorus
‘Cause we break down a little
But when I get you alone, it’s so simple
‘Cause baby, I know what you know
We can feel it

Chorus
And all our pieces fall
Right into place
Get caught up in a moment
Lipstick on your face
So it goes…
I’m yours to keep
And I’m yours to lose
You know I’m not a bad girl, but I
Do bad things with you
So it goes…

Refrain
Come here, dressed in black now
So, so, so it goes
Scratches down your back now
So, so, so it goes

Bridge
You did a number on me
But, honestly, baby, who’s counting?
I did a number on you
But, honestly, baby, who’s counting?
You did a number on me
But, honestly, baby, who’s counting?
Who’s counting?
(1, 2, 3)

Chorus

And all our pieces fall (pieces fall)
Right into place
Get caught up in a moment (caught up, caught up)
Lipstick on your face
So it goes (goes)…
I’m yours to keep (oh)
And I’m yours to lose (baby)
You know I’m not a bad girl, but I
Do bad things with you
So it goes…

Refrain

Come here, dressed in black now
So, so, so it goes
Scratches down your back now
So, so, so it goes
Come here, dressed in black now
So, so, so it goes
Scratches down your back now
So, so, so it goes
So It Goes
So It Goes

Dress Lyrics – Taylor Swift – Music Pop

Dress

 

Verse 1
Our secret moments in a crowded room
They got no idea about me and you
There is an indentation in the shape of you
Made your mark on me, a golden tattoo

Pre-Chorus
All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation
My hands are shaking from holding back from you
Ha, ah, ah
All of this silence and patience, pining and desperately waiting
My hands are shaking from all this
Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

Chorus
Say my name and everything just stops
I don’t want you like a best friend
Only bought this dress so you could take it off
Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah
Carve your name into my bedpost
’Cause I don’t want you like a best friend
Only bought this dress so you could take it off
Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

Verse 2
Inescapable, I’m not even gonna try
And if I get burned, at least we were electrified
I’m spilling wine in the bathtub
You kiss my face and we’re both drunk
Everyone thinks that they know us
But they know nothing about—

Pre-Chorus

All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation
My hands are shaking from holding back from you
Ha, ah, ah
All of this silence and patience, pining and desperately waiting
My hands are shaking from all this
Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

Chorus

Post-Chorus
Ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah-ah
Only bought this dress so you could take it off
Ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah-ah
Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Bridge
Flashback when you met me
Your buzzcut and my hair bleached
Even in my worst times, you could see the best of me
Flashback to my mistakes
My rebounds, my earthquakes
Even in my worst lies, you saw the truth in me
And I woke up just in time
Now I wake up by your side
My one and only, my lifeline
I woke up just in time
Now I wake up by your side
My hands shake, I can’t explain this
Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

Chorus

Outro
There is an indentation in the shape of you
Only bought this dress so you could take it off
You made your mark on me, golden tattoo
Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Look What You Made Me Do Lyrics – Taylor Swift

Look What You Made Me Do

 

Verse 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 (oh)

Pre-Chorus
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
I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

Chorus
Ooh, look what you made me do [ 4x ]
Ooh, look what you made me do { 4  }

Verse 2
I don’t like your kingdom keys
They once belonged to me
You asked me for a place to sleep
Locked me out and threw a feast (what?)
The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama
But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma
And then the world moves on, but one thing’s for sure
Maybe I got mine, but you’ll all get yours

Pre-Chorus
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
I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

Chorus
Ooh, look what you made me do [ 7x ]

Bridge

I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
(Ooh, look what you made me do [ 6x ]
“I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now
“Why? Oh, ’cause she’s dead!” (Oh)

Chorus
Ooh, look what you made me do [ 15x ]
Look What You Made Me Do
