Bad Blood Lyrics
Jump to:
[Album Version]
(Here for Remix feat. Kendrick Lamar)

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know what used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood

Did you have to do this, I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin, what was shining now it's all rusted
Did you have to hit me, where I'm weak, baby, I couldn't breathe
And rub it in so deep, salt in the wound like you're laughing right at me
Oh, it's so sad to, think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
(HEY)
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

Did you think we'd be fine, still got scars on my back from your knife
So don't think it's in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last
Did you think it all through; all these things will catch up to you
And time can heal but this won't, so if you're coming my way just don't
Oh, it's so sad to, think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

Band-aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that that you live with ghosts
Band-aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that you live with ghosts
If you love like that blood runs cold

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
(mad love)
So take a look what you've done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
(think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
(look what you've done)
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

(HEY)

Bad Blood Info:

• Taylor wrote the song about an undisclosed female musical artist. Swift says the artist attempted to sabotage one of her concert tours by hiring people who worked for her.

Taylor said: "She did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business, She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational ' you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."

• Publications such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, Time, and The Washington Post have speculated that the song is about Katy Perry.

• The album version of the song only contains Taylor as the vocalist on verses, while the single version features a re-worked instrumental and guest vocals from Kendrick Lamar.

Hayley Williams' superhero alter-ego in the video is called The Crimson Curse. When asked why she chose the name, she responded on twitter: "because what is as brutal as a period? NOTHING I TELL YA".
