‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at 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 got bad blood
(Hey) 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
I rubbed 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 at 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 got bad blood
(Hey) 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 kind of wounds they last and they last
Now 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 come in 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 at 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 got bad blood
(Hey) band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts (ghosts)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes (hey)
You say sorry just for show (hey)
You live like that, you live with ghosts (hey)
Hm, if you love like that blood runs cold
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at 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 (think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood
(‘Cause now we got bad blood) ’cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done (look at what you’ve done)
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood (woah)
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.

i never meant to like taylor swift. she’s not necessarily in my wheelhouse. but i do admire tenacity. and good will. and good manners. and it seems she has all those and more.

however i do love the ryan adams tribute album to taylor swift’s 1989. and listen a lot. i have friends who’ve been fans of ryan’s for some time and i never got it until now. anyway this is a sunday kind of love post for taylor swift. she may not need it. but it feels great to be kind.

lifted from janis ian’s fb page:

Just watched Adele’s new video. Brilliant. Love the flip phones, love the “old love interest”. Love the music.
Here’s what I don’t get. The posts saying things like “Sorry, Taylor, Adele wants her throne back.”
I happen to be a big Taylor Swift fan. I think she’s shown enormous grace under enormous pressure. She’s one of the most generous performers out there, not just with her money but with her time – and lots of both are unpublicized.
In addition, she’s a brave writer and recording artist. She’s matured in a goldfish bowl, as I did, and she’s done a much better job of maintaining her sanity than I did in my teens. Not to mention her stunning professionalism.
Likewise Adele. First time out, the hugest record of the year. Second time out, ditto. Brave? Walked away so she could have a life for a while, sort it through, figure out where she was going and where she wanted to be.
The way I see it, the two women have a great deal in common.
So why the perception that there’s any kind of competition here?
Personally, I think it’s a “female thing”, and it disappoints me that women are contributing to it. You don’t see posts like “Sorry, Elton, Bruce wants his throne back” do you? Or catty comments when two male artists are both having hit records?
I find it stunning that the top two selling artists right now are women who write their own music and direct and arrange and co-produce and produce and don’t apologize for any of it. I just do NOT understand why anyone would think they’d be in competition in that snarky, mean way.
I don’t know either of these women, but I can tell you as a female artist, we don’t need to be tearing one another down. We need to be helping one another stand up, and showing pride in each others’ accomplishments.
