Taylor Swift's "Blank Space": A Commentary


Classes start tomorrow. One last post while freedom reigns.

I know I already did a Taylor Swift song, but I couldn’t resist with this one. As with my other song posts, the lines not in italics are the lyrics of the song. The lines in italics are mine. According to how I understood this song, the lines in quotes are Taylor’s words. Everything else is said by the guy talking to her. Nice to meet you, where you been? Oh, you know, class, work, chillin’. Around.

I could show you incredible things In Starbucks?

Magic, madness, heaven, sin, Are those metaphors for pumpkin spice latte, triple shots of espresso, peppermint mocha, and five pumps of white chocolate?

Saw you there and I thought

Oh my God, look at that face Yeah, I know, I really need my morning coffee.

You look like my next mistake Not really sure what…

Love’s a game, wanna play? *thinking* Oooooh, he’s hitting on me! Well he is pretty cute, so… *smiles*

"New money, suit and tie

I can read you like a magazine" *thinking* Although I’m not sure why he’s wearing that to work, at Starbucks…does he also work in an office after his shift here?

Ain’t it funny, rumors fly

And I know you heard about me You know what, I actually think I have heard of you! I think my friend told me about you. And my other friend. And maybe this other one too. But your name is fairly common, so maybe not, I dunno.

So hey, let’s be friends Teehee ok!

I’m dying to see how this one ends Wait, you mean with me, or my order?

Grab your passport and my hand Whoa, that went fast, but apparently it involves international travel, so what the hell!

“I can make the bad guys good for a weekend”

Even random hot Starbucks baristas.

So it’s gonna be forever

:)

Or it’s gonna go down in flames

:(

You can tell me when it’s over So I just end it when I want? That’s…actually kind of liberating. And worrying at the same time.

If the high was worth the pain I mean, I wouldn’t quite put it like that, but yeah, we’ll see, I guess.

Gotta love those Starbucks lovers Yeah you guys are pretty cute.

They’ll tell you I’m insane Haha from all the caffeine and sugar right? Right?

‘Cause you know I love the players Ha ha cute…wait really?

And you love the game It is fun sometimes, not gonna lie.

‘Cause we’re young and we’re reckless That’s true! Bring it on the world, this is gonna be great!

We’ll take this way too far But it’ll be worth it (hopefully).

It’ll leave you breathless Oh I hope so!

Or with a nasty scar Yeah I’m crossing my fingers for the other option.

Gotta love those Starbucks lovers Who knew I’d end up dating one?

They’ll tell you I’m insane

But I’ve got a blank space, baby

And I’ll write your name I thought that was what that place on the cup was for anyway…?

Cherry lips, crystal skies

I could show you incredible things Yes yes tell me all about the secret menu!

Stolen kisses, pretty lies Ooh, management scandals!

“You’re the King, baby, I’m your Queen”

Find out what you want I could just tell you, that’s why I came in, after all.

Be that girl for a month The one who comes in and you see her pull up and so by the time she walks in the door you have her drink all ready for her? I would love to be that girl. But why only for a month? Are you leaving? Is this location closing?

Wait, the worse is yet to come, oh no No no no don’t be out of the Caffè Verona roast!!

Screaming, crying, perfect storms I cannot even right now!

I can make all the tables turn (Literally)

Rose garden filled with thorns How can you be out of it?!

Keep you second guessing like

Oh my God, who is she? What? Who? The girl who just walked by? How short of an attention span do you have? You are out of the Caffè Verona roast! Focus!

I get drunk on jealousy K I don’t really care right now, because I’m a little distracted with the crisis you just dropped on me, but if you’re asking if I have a boyfriend, I don’t.

But you’ll come back each time you leave But, the Caffè Verona…

‘Cause, darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream I mean, you are cute, and nice, even if you are a flake, and you will restock on the Verona, so sure, I guess, I’ll try the Sumatra today. The panther looks cool anyway.

So it’s gonna be forever As long as you keep that other office job that requires that sexy suit.

Or it’s gonna go down in flames If you don’t restock on the Verona, hell yeah it is.

You can tell me when it’s over

If the high was worth the pain Well with the Verona the caffeine crash is worth it. We’ll have to see with the Sumatra. Not sure I can date a barista if you can’t even have my coffee roast available. That means you probably forget about other important things too, and I can’t handle that.

Gotta love those Starbucks lovers

They’ll tell you I’m insane But the Sumatra sample you gave me is good! They must mean “insane” as in “genius.”

‘Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game Well you make it fun ;)

‘Cause we’re young and we’re reckless

We’ll take this way too far But so far so good!

It’ll leave you breathless

Or with a nasty scar I mean, not having the Verona is a pretty big deal, but I’ll probably get over it at some point. You did introduce me to another really good roast, after all.

Gotta love those Starbucks lovers

They’ll tell you I’m insane But your coffee expertise and suit make it worth it.

But I’ve got a blank space, baby

And I’ll write your name *giggles*

Boys only want love if it’s torture Wait, they do?

Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t warn ya Oh, ok. Well, I guess in that case, instead of my usual black coffee, I’ll have a triple grande half-soy hazelnut caramel macchiato…

Boys only want love if it’s torture

Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t warn ya …3.5 pumps caramel, 1.5 pumps hazelnut, lite water, 2% foam, no whip, extra chocolate drizzle, no caramel drizzle, extra salt topping, cream, upside down, extra hot.

So it’s gonna be forever I know, it’s a complicated order, but it really shouldn’t be too hard for you, and Starbucks does say I can have it however I want it, and that’s how I want it.

Or it’s gonna go down in flames If you mess up my coffee I’m not changing it, you’ll have to redo it.

You can tell me when it’s over Um, when you get to the end of the order? Duh?

If the high was worth the pain Oh well see the beauty of my drink (and it is My Drink, the Me Special) is that the half-soy and lite water combine with the espresso so I don’t get the caffeine crash! Who knew, right?

Got a long list of ex-lovers Wait, what?

They’ll tell you I’m insane Hold on hold on, where’s the internet, I’m looking this crap up.

‘Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game Searching…

‘Cause we’re young and we’re reckless If the lyrics are “Got a long list of ex-lovers,” and not “Gotta love those Starbucks lovers,” then that means…

We’ll take this way too far …this isn’t about baristas…

It’ll leave you breathless …or coffee…

Or with a nasty scar …and it’s her talking the whole time, not her saying what the barista said…

Got a long list of ex-lovers DAMNIT

They’ll tell you I’m insane THAT MEANS

But I’ve got a blank space, baby

And I’ll write your name I HAVE TO REDO THE WHOLE SONG.
