Blank Space

Lyrics

play Nice to meet you, where you   ?
play I could   you incredible things
play Magic, madness, heaven, sin
play Saw you there and I thought
play Oh my God, look at that face
play You look like my next  
play Love's a game, wanna play?

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

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

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

play Cherry   , crystal skies
play I could show you incredible things
play Stolen   , pretty lies
play You're the King, baby, I'm your Queen
play Find out what you want
play Be that girl for a  
play Wait, the   is yet to come, oh no

play Screaming, crying, perfect storms
play I can make all the   turn
play Rose garden filled with thorns
play Keep you second guessing like
play "Oh my God, who is she?"
play I get drunk on  
play But you'll come back each time you  
play 'Cause, darling,
play I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream

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

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

play Boys only want love if it's torture
play Don't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya
play Boys only want love if it's torture
play Don't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya

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

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

This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her.

it's satirical song on the way she is portrayed in the media. "Got a long list of exlovers" is the reference to the media claiming that she has had so many boyfriends in the past,
"I've got a blank space baby" is her saying that it's the same story over and over but with different men.
