Mean

Mean
(Taylor Swift)

You, with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me
You, have knocked me off my feet again got me feeling like a nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board calling me out when I'm wounded
You, picking on the weaker man
Well you can take me down with just one blow
But you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides and your wildfire lies and your humiliation
You, have pointed out my flaws again, as if I don't already see them
I walk with my head down trying to block you out cause I never impress you
I just want to feel okay again
I bet you got pushed around somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar
Talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
But nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing
But all you are is mean
All you are is mean
And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah...
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?
