I knew you were trouble

Taylor Swift

Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I\me was in your sights you got me\him alone
You found me\him you found me\him, you found me\him
I\We guess you didn't care, and I guess I liked that
And when I\she fell hard you took a step back
Without my \me without my\me, without my\ me

And he's\hers long gone when hers\he's next to me\he
And my\I realize the blame is on we\me

Cuz I\she knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Till you\they put me down oh
I knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Now he’s\ I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh oh trouble trouble trouble
Oh oh trouble trouble trouble

No apologies, he'll never see you\me cry
Pretend she\he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
You're\They’re drowning, you're\they’re drowning, you're\they’re drowning
Heard I\you moved on, from whispers on the street
A new notch in yours\your belt is all I'll ever be
And now we\ I see, now we\ I see, now we\ I see

She\He was long gone when he\she met me\my
And we\ I realize the joke is on us\me

Cuz I\she knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Till you\they put me down oh
I knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Now he’s\ I'm lying on the cold hard ground


Oh oh trouble trouble trouble
Oh oh trouble trouble trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you\he never loved him\me, or her\me, or anyone
Or anything, yeah


Cuz I\she knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Till you\they put me down oh
I knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
So shame on we\me now
Flew me\her to places I've never been
Now he’s\ I'm lying on the cold hard ground


Oh oh trouble trouble trouble
Oh oh trouble trouble trouble

I\she knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
Trouble trouble trouble
I\she knew you\he were trouble when you\he walked in
Trouble trouble trouble
