Blank Space

Lyrics

playNice to meet you, where you been?
playI could show you incredible things
playMagic, madness, heaven, sin
playSaw you there and I thought
playOh my God, look at that face
playYou look like my next mistake
playLove's a game, wanna play?

playnew money, suit and tie
playI can read you like a magazine
playAin't it funny, rumors fly
playAnd I know you heard about me
playSo hey, let's be friends
playI'm dying to see how this one ends
playGrab your passport and my hand
playI can make the bad guys good for a weekend

playSo it's gonna be forever
playOr it's gonna go down in flames
playYou can tell me when it's over
playIf the high was worth the pain
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
play'Cause you know I love the players
playAnd you love the game

play'Cause we're young and we're reckless
playWe'll take this way too far
playIt'll leave you breathless
playOr with a nasty scar
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
playBut I've got a blank space, baby
playAnd I'll write your name

playCherry lips, crystal skies
playI could show you incredible things
playStolen kisses, pretty lies
playYou're the King, baby, I'm your Queen
playFind out what you want
playBe that girl for a month
playWait, the worst is yet to come, oh no

playScreaming, crying, perfect storms
playI can make all the tables turn
playRose garden filled with thorns
playKeep you second guessing like
play"Oh my God, who is she?"
playI get drunk on jealousy
playBut you'll come back each time you leave
play'Cause, darling,
playI'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream

playSo it's gonna be forever
playOr it's gonna go down in flames
playYou can tell me when it's over
playIf the high was worth the pain
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
play'Cause you know I love the players
playAnd you love the game

play'Cause we're young and we're reckless
playWe'll take this way too far
playIt'll leave you breathless
playOr with a nasty scar
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
playBut I've got a blank space, baby
playAnd I'll write your name

playBoys only want love if it's torture
playDon't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya
playBoys only want love if it's torture
playDon't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya

playSo it's gonna be forever
playOr it's gonna go down in flames
playYou can tell me when it's over
playIf the high was worth the pain
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
play'Cause you know I love the players
playAnd you love the game

play'Cause we're young and we're reckless
playWe'll take this way too far
playIt'll leave you breathless
playOr with a nasty scar
playGot a long list of ex-lovers
playThey'll tell you I'm insane
playBut I've got a blank space, baby
playAnd I'll write your name
