I Knew You Were Trouble Lyrics and Intro


Yesterday Taylor previewed her song "I Knew You Were Trouble" from her new album "Red" on Good Morning America.

This song is definitely a pop song.  It has a catchy chorus, a distinct beat and her voice is definitely in pop mode. I think it will go far in the pop world.


In her preview of the song Taylor said, "The song we're releasing tonight ... it's a song that's one of my favorite songs on the album because it sounds just as chaotic as the feeling was when I wrote it. It's a song about kind of being frustrated with yourself because you have your heart broken and you knew when you first saw that person you saw all these red flags and you just went for it anyway, 'So, shame on me.' "

Who is this song about?

My guess already after only hearing it once and reading the lyrics is John Mayer, saying this guy "never loved me or her or anyone or anything."  And that as soon as she "fell hard" he "took a step back."  How many women has John Mayer tried to get just so he could dump them?  Taylor definitely knew he was "trouble when you walked in" and in the end "heard you moved on from whispers on the street" and she knew she was just "a new notch in your belt."  It certainly sounds like Mayer and he is trouble!

I Knew You Were Trouble Lyrics (Red Album)


once upon a time, a few mistakes ago
i was in your sights, you got me alone
you found me, you found me, you found me…
i guess you didn't care and i guess i liked that
and i when i fell hard, you took a step back
without me, without me, without me…
and he's long gone when he's next to me
and i realize the blame is on me, cause

CHORUS
i knew you were trouble when you walked in
so shame on me now
flew me to places i’d never been till you put me down
oh i knew you were trouble when you walked in
so shame on me now
flew me to places i’d never been
now 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 cry
pretends he doesn't know that he's the reason why
you're drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning…
and i heard you moved on from whispers on the street
a new notch in your belt is all i’ll ever be
and now i see, now i see, now i see…
he was long gone when he met me
and i realize the joke is on me
hey!

REPEAT CHORUS

and the saddest fear
comes creeping in
that you never loved me
or her...or anyone...or anything
yeah

REPEAT CHORUS

i knew you were trouble when you walked in
trouble, trouble, trouble
i knew you were trouble when you walked in
trouble, trouble, trouble
