Taylor Swift: Blank Space From 1989 Album Song Lyrics

musicbiz101wp – Blank Space is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, taken from her fifth studio album, 1989. It was released to US radio stations as the second single from 1989 on November 10, 2014, by Republic Records in partnership with Swift’s then Label, Big Machine.

Taylor Swift co-wrote “Blank Space” with producers Max Martin and Shellback. As for the lyrics, she regards the song as a self-referential reference to her reputation as a flirtatious woman with a string of romantic ties, which tarnish the image of her once healthy neighbor. Musically, it’s an electropop song with minimal beats influenced by hip hop.

“Blank Space” spent seven weeks atop the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified eight times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It also topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Iceland, Scotland, and South Africa.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) reported that “Blank Space” was one of the best-selling singles of 2015. Critics praised Swift’s songwriting and production; some voted for it as the highlight of 1989.
The song received three nominations at the 58th Grammy Awards, including two general categories: Record of the Year and Song of the Year. It is featured on decade-end lists by publications such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, and Slant Magazine.

Joseph Kahn directed the music video for “Blank Space”, which depicts Swift as a jealous woman who acts erratically after suspecting her boyfriend’s infidelity. Most of the shooting took place at Oheka Castle, with some additional scenes shot at the Woolworth Estate.

The video won Best Pop Video and Best Female Video at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Swift included “Empty Space” on the set lists for her two concert tours: the 1989 World Tour (2015) and the Reputation Stadium Tour (2018). The song has been adapted into cover versions of different genres by several rock musicians, including I Prevail and Ryan Adams.

Blank Space from 1989 Album Song Lyrics

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Taylor Swift makes history when “Blank Space” blasts from No. 13 to No. 1. on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As the song dethrones her previous hit, “Shake It Off”, after four weeks atop the chart, Swift becomes the first woman in the Hot 100’s 56-year history to succeed herself at the top spot.

“Blank Space” satirizes the media’s perception of Swift and her relationships from the perspective of a character she created based on all the media claims.

“Got a long list of ex-lovers” is often mishearded as “all the lonely Starbucks lovers”. Taylor is okay with this: “A delightful misunderstanding about this song that was written about misunderstandings.”

Some of the things I write about on a song like ‘Blank Space’ are satire. Is it cool to write the narrative of a girl who’s crazy but seductive but glamorous but nuts but manipulative? That was the character I felt the media had written for me, and for a long time I felt hurt by it. I took it personally. But as time went by, I realized it was kind of hilarious.” – Taylor Swift.
