Riff: Taylor Swift – “I Knew You Were Trouble”

Oct 22, 2012

And I heard you moved on from whispers on the street/ A new notch on your belt is all I’ll ever be

from I Knew You Were Trouble lyrics by Taylor Swift

Proving that even wholesome country girls can’t resist the bad boys, Swift rather sheepishly admits her foolishness at succumbing to the ‘love them and leave them’ charms of her previous beau, whilst also tip-toeing on the dubstep bandwagon with perhaps the politest bass wobble ever recorded.

    ” I’m gonna pop some tags,only got 20 dollars in my pocket/I-I-I’m huntin’, lookin’ for a come up this is f***ing awesome!”

    ”Apparently Macklemore and Ryan Lewis just LOVE going to the thrift shop and ” popping tags” all dang day. I’m not hating on the song but I am stating the true facts” – DubstepGirl
