"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.

[[WMG: Meredith is Taylor's way of gauging whether a given boyfriend is worth keeping around.]]
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.

The "we never go out of style" part is meant to represent the romanticism of the "older guy / younger girl secret romance" trope. Even though, legally speaking, she ''can't'' consent, and some of the lines also give the impression she's afraid of him ("He can't keep his wild eyes on the road", and the bridge where she begs, "Just take me home!"), these relationships get told and retold in movies, TV shows, and books over and over again as a love story -- the dynamic never goes out of style. This sort of thing keeps happening to other impressionable teenage girls, and the cycle repeats.

know exactly where it leads, but I watch us go round and round each time") and it all feels very familiar. She describes their JacobMarleyApparel in detail because it's become so familiar, and is aware that it's become dated-looking but loves her boyfriend enough not to care ("''we'' never go out of style"). Both of them hope that each replay will be the time they finally are able to break the cycle (the boyfriend now keeps "his wild eyes on the road" trying to prevent the crash) and pass on to either "burning flames or paradise". (Hopefully the later, the poor kids.)

[[WMG: Alternatively, the singer's boyfriend in "Style" is much older than her -- possibly older enough to constitute statutory rape.]]

The singer is a teenage girl (I picture her being seventeen or so), and her boyfriend is in his twenties. He's old enough that they keep the relationship a secret. Hence why he "picks [her] up [with] no headlights" at midnight, and why the whole thing could end "in burning flames or paradise" -- she ''knows'' it's a disaster waiting to happen, but she loves him too much to break it off. The lines "good girl faith" also give the impression of someone very young and naive. This makes the fact that he's cheating on her with "some other girl" and justifies it by the fact that he was thinking about the singer the whole time even worse -- he's basically just using this impressionable teenage girl for sex. Even when they "go crashing down, [they] come back every time", because she keeps crawling back.

[[WMG: Swift is the daughter of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Aphrodite]].]]
* In Greek mythology, Aphrodite was the [[UnkemptBeauty beautiful]] goddess of love and beauty, and the gods and goddesses were known to seduce mortals. Hence, it would only make sense if they passed their genes on to their children. As for her singing ability, she was blessed (or possibly cursed) by Apollo, the god of music. Why are these gods still present? They've come and gone with the nations, a la PercyJackson. And this is coming from [[{{Tropers/Spinosegnosaurus77}} a troper]] who isn't too keen on EpilepticTrees!



[[WMG: Something [[{{Tropers/Spinosegnosaurus77}} I]] saw on Website/IMDb...]]
This chick is a robot; some marketing creation by overpriced ad agencies --- she has no soul. People complain about her songs, but fail to realize that -- because she's a robot -- she's unable to relate to humans (feelings, experiences, emotions).



[[WMG: Swift is a GoodBadGirl.]]
"TimMcGraw", "Sparks Fly" & "Dear John", while clearly about different people, all suggest she had sex with their respective subjects. Still not buying it? [[http://onestdv.blogspot.com/2010/12/good-girls-gone-bad.html?m=1 This]] will change everything.
** "She dates a lot of men" [[NonSequitur doesn't necessarily mean]] "she has sex with lots of men". Indeed, the fact that she seems to have a lot of messy breakups could be ''explained'' by her refusing to sleep with them.
*** Very good point, but someone on Swift's forums has suggested an equally plausible theory: her boyfriends "wooed her, got what they wanted and dumped her"; in other words, her taste in men is to blame for her own promiscuity.
** This actually seems unlikely - Harry allegedly broke up with her because she wouldn't have sex. Or something. I can't remember if it's because she wouldn't have sex with him at all or just as often as he wanted, but he apparently said she was a prude who was also oddly obsessed with antiques, when he'd rather go clubbing.
*** That information is just random tabloid gossip. It doesn't disprove anything.
