Boys only want love if it’s torture
Don’t say I didn’t say I didn’t warn ya
We’re obviously talking about Blank Space, but what she exactly means here? Let’s dissect it: you might have heard a phrase like “don’t say I didn’t tell you it was a bad idea“, meaning that we told somebody that something was a bad idea, they didn’t listen to us and now are coming back to complain because it turned out badly as we predicted. Here Taylor is saying the same, but what she said is that she didn’t warn the boys. She admitted she didn’t warn them. So torture will be apparently, no excuses!
…or maybe I just suck at double negatives. I don’t really think the schoolboys from that Pink Floyd song were against “no education” after all.
