Mean Lyrics

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 manYou can take me down
With just one single blow
But you don't know what you don't knowSomeday I'll be living in a big old 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,
Try to block you out 'cause I never impress you
I just want to feel okay againI 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 knowSomeday I'll be living in a big old 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 meanBut someday I'll be living in a big old 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 old 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?

Taylor Swift (born December 13, 1989 in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania) is an American country pop singer-songwriter and actress. Swift is a 10-time Grammy winner with a total of 23 nominations (Feb 2016).

In 2006, she released her debut single "Tim McGraw", then her self-titled debut album, which was subsequently certified multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

In November 2008, Swift released her second album, Fearless, which featured a number of more pop oriented songs such as "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story". Fearless was the best-selling album in 2009 in the USA and was awarded with 4 Grammy's.

Swift's third and fourth albums, 2010's "Speak Now" and 2012's "Red", both sold over one million copies within the first week of their US release. “Speak Now” won two Grammy Awards, while “Red’s” singles " We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together " and " I Knew You Were Trouble" were worldwide hits.

The 1989 was released on October 27, 2014. It marked a move away from her earlier country sounds and fully into pop. Both the title ("1989") and the overall sound of the album - synth pop - were a nod to her birth year and nostalgia with the 1980s. It became the best-selling album of 2014, selling 3.66m copies in USA, and as of April 2015, it had sold 4.5m copies in the US (9m worldwide). The first single from the album was "Shake It Off" (released on August 18, 2014), which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

On February 15, 2016, Taylor Swift won "album of the year" at the 58th Grammy Awards for "1989".
