Taylor Swift – Don’t Blame Me (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)

Related Posts

“Don’t Blame Me” is the fourth song from Taylor Swift’s sixth studio album “Reputation.” The song and music sound suspiciously like Hozier’s “Take Me to Church”. The song has a romantic theme, but has a dark and ominous sound.

The heavy use of synth-pop, trap and electro-pop music is present in the song “Don’t Blame Me”. The song is from Taylor to her lover, asking him to make “love” properly, if not, asking to get out of his life.

Although the lyrics of this song are clear and direct, it would be helpful to see some cleverly hidden allusions to her exes.

Lyrics Review a song Meaning of “Don’t Blame Me”

Taylor Swift begins the song by saying she’s a sucker for love. She says love drove her crazy and made her do crazy things. Perhaps she regrets some of the relationships she had before her current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.

She says she is so addicted to her boyfriend that it looks like a sin and she asks God for forgiveness. Love is his metaphorical drug.

In verse one, Taylor Swift admits her love frenzy:

I broke hearts for a long time
And play with these older dudes

She could talk about her relationship with Tom Hiddleston, who is 9 years older than Taylor, or Calvin Harris who is 5 years older than her or even Jake Gyllenhaal who is 9 years older than her. She says it was for her pleasure.

Taylor Swift Says She’s Ready to Commit to Relationship; that she would cross some boundaries (like age?) and sacrifice her sanity to make this relationship work. And what she expects of him in return is not mentioned in the song.

And baby, for you, I’d fall out of favor
Just to touch your face
If you walk away
I beg you on my knees to stay

Taylor Swift goes to extreme lengths to say she would beg him on her knees to stay with her. This contrasts with what she said about love in “I Did Something Bad” from the album “Reputation” itself. Is she ready to sacrifice everything for the right person and play the bad boy? You let us know in the comments.

“I Did Something Bad” isn’t your typical dance-club trap song. It’s the kind you put on your headphones and relax on a rainy evening.

From pop to trap, Taylor Swift goes through a cross-genre musical transcendence in the album “Reputation”.
