Blank Space

So I like this song.

It’s by Taylor Swift, for those of you who don’t know, and it’s in her album 1989. I like her songs, and although I did not really like her album, Red, I found the songs in 1989 quite nice.

On top of that, it’s quite fun trying to rewrite the lyrics to reverse the meaning – e.g.: Though I have a blank space, baby, please don’t write your name.

You should try this song, too.


Blank Space
By: Taylor Swift

Nice to meet you,
Where you been
I could show you incredible things.
Magic, madness, heaven, sin,
Saw you there and I thought
Oh my god, look at that face,
You look like my next mistake.
Love’s a game,
Wanna play?

New money, suit and tie,
I can read you like a magazine.
Ain’t it funny, rumours fly,
And I know you’ve heard about me
So hey, let’s be friends,
I’m dying to see how this one ends.
Grab your passport and my hand
I can make the bad guys good for a weekend.

So it’s gonna be forever,
Or it’s gonna go down in flames.
You can tell me when it’s over,
If the high was worth the pain.
Got a long list of ex-lovers,
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we’re young and we’re reckless
We’ll take this way too far.
It’ll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar.
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
But I got a blank space, baby.
And I’ll write your name.

Cherry lips,
Crystal skies,
I could show you incredible things.
Stolen kisses,
Pretty lies,
You’re the king baby, I’m your queen
Find out, what you want
Be that girl, for a month
But the worse has yet to come

Oh no,
Screaming, crying, perfect storms,
I can make all the tables turn.
Rose gardens, filled with thorns,
Keep you second guessing like
Oh my god, who is she,
I get drunk, on jealousy,
But you’ll come back, each time you leave,
Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.

So it’s gonna be forever,
Or it’s gonna go down in flames.
You can tell me when it’s over,
If the high was worth the pain.
Got a long list of ex-lovers,
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we’re young and we’re reckless
We’ll take this way too far.
It’ll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar.
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
But I got a blank space, baby.
And I’ll write your name.

Boys only want love, if it’s torture.
Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t warn you.
Boys only want love, if it’s torture.
Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t warn you.

So it’s gonna be forever,
Or it’s gonna go down in flames.
You can tell me when it’s over,
If the high was worth the pain.
Got a long list of ex-lovers,
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we’re young and we’re reckless
We’ll take this way too far.
It’ll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar.
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane.
But I got a blank space, baby.
And I’ll write your name.
