"Now we've 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." The problems are WW2, and not being able to solve them references the way neither country was willing to surrender. "You made a really deep cut" refers to both the anger of the USSR at being betrayed by Nazi Germany and the violence of WW2. Bringing back the phrase "now we've got bad blood" brings the focus back onto the rivalry.

"Did you think we'd be fine? Still got scars on the back from your knife. So don't think it's the past, these kinda wounds they last and 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're coming my way, just don't." This refers to the way that the scars of WW2 have never really gone away. "All these things will catch up to you" refers to the violent vengeance extracted by the USSR on Nazi Germany at the end of WW2.

"Band-aids don't fix bullet holes, you say sorry just for show. If you live like 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." The bullet holes both refer to the violence of WW2 and the way the USSR felt when Nazi Germany broke the Nazi-Soviet Non-Agression Pact. Saying sorry "just for show" refers to the USSR's feeling that the western Allies didn't punish Nazi Germany enough. "Living with ghosts" refer to the ghosts of the people who died in WW2. "Blood runs cold" refers to both the hatred of the USSR and Nazi Germany for each other and also for both regimes' cold-blooded brutality.

** This also works with "Love Story". It even makes the "scarlet letter" reference make more sense.

Sometime in the 1950s (the boyfriend is compared to James Dean and his slicked-back hair and white undershirt suggest a greaser kind of look), the couple met up one night for a joyride/makeout as described in the song. The girlfriend brought up the rumors of her boyfriend's cheating and they argued. They got back in the car and drove somewhere else, but the boyfriend was distracted by their earlier argument and made some kind of mistake, resulting in an accident that killed the couple. Now they're [[OurGhostsAreDifferent the kind of ghosts who are stuck in a "replay"]] of those events that starts with the girl being picked up and ends with the crash, then starts over ("when we go crashing down we come back every time"-- because they can't die twice, the crash just starts the cycle over again.)

I forget where I first came across this theory, but basically, if Meredith actually ''likes'' a person from outside Taylor's immediate family (i.e., her parents, Scott and Andrea, and her brother, Austin), said person is a good candidate for a future husband or at least a life-long friend.

[[WMG: "Bad Blood" is about UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, sung from he perspective of the USSR about Nazi Germany.]]

A lyrics analysis:
"'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've got bad blood." The "bad blood" refers to the fierce hatred between the USSR and Nazi Germany. It could also be considered a reference to the bloodiness of both regimes. Having had "mad love" refers to the Nazi-Soviet Non-Agression Pact, which resulted in Nazi Germany breaking the treaty and attacking the USSR, which is what "take a look what you've done refers to." The repeat of "now we got bad blood" emphasizes the bitterness of the hatred of these two countries.

"Now we've 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." The problems are WW2, and not being able to solve them references the way neither country was willing to surrender. "You made a really deep cut" refers to both the anger of the USSR at being betrayed by Nazi Germany and the violence of WW2. Bringing back the phrase "now we've got bad blood" brings the focus back onto the rivalry.

"Did you have to do this? I was thinking that you could be trusted. Did you have to ruin what was shiny? 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." The part about thinking someone could be trusted is about the Nazi-Soviet Non-Agression Pact, mentioned above. "Ruining what was shiny" refers again to the breaking of the treaty. Being hit in a weak spot also references the way Nazi Germany broke the Non-Agression Pact, which caught the USSR off-guard. Not being able to breathe and "salt in the wound" refers to the SaltTheEarth tactics used by both the Nazis and the Soviets.

"Oh, it's so sad, to think of all the good times, you and I." This refers to the way the USSR thought it was on good terms with Nazi Germany

"Did you think we'd be fine? Still got scars on the back from your knife. So don't think it's the past, these kinda wounds they last and 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're coming my way, just don't." This refers to the way that the scars of WW2 have never really gone away. "All these things will catch up to you" refers to the violent vengeance extracted by the USSR on Nazi Germany at the end of WW2.

"Band-aids don't fix bullet holes, you say sorry just for show. If you live like 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." The bullet holes both refer to the violence of WW2 and the way the USSR felt when Nazi Germany broke the Nazi-Soviet Non-Agression Pact. Saying sorry "just for show" refers to the USSR's feeling that the western Allies didn't punish Nazi Germany enough. "Living with ghosts" refer to the ghosts of the people who died in WW2. "Blood runs cold" refers to both the hatred of the USSR and Nazi Germany for each other and also for both regimes' cold-blooded brutality.
