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 { …… }
