The Best Lyrics From Every Track On Taylor Swift's "Reputation"

Taylor Swift is back & better than ever.

The Best Lyrics From Every Track On Taylor Swift's "Reputation"

Well, Taylor Swift is back and “Reputation” has die-hard Taylor Swift fans shaking. This album was well-worth the wait and is full of many lyrical gems. Here are the best lyrics from every song on “Reputation” that you’ll see all over Instagram captions and that will have you in the feels.

1. “...Ready For It?”

“In the middle of the night, in my dreams, you should see the things we do.”

I couldn’t think of a better opening track for Reputation because of the title. Taylor literally is asking us if we’re ready for this album, and to be completely honest, I don’t think I was.

2. “End Game”

“I don’t wanna touch you, I don’t wanna be just another ex-love you don’t want to see.”

I’m still waiting on this song to grow on me like the rest of the album. If you’re a fan of Future, though, you’ll love this song because it features him really well.

3. “I Did Something Bad”

“If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit, ‘cause he had it coming.”

It’s so obvious to me who this song is about, and I’m SO here for it. I’m living for Taylor’s feisty, take-no-shit phase.

4. “Don’t Blame Me”

“My drug is my baby I’ll be usin’ for the rest of my life.”

Taylor’s vocals in this song SLAY. This is a perfect example of her really getting into the mood of the song vocally and she’s killing it.

5. “Delicate”

“Sometimes when I look into your eyes I pretend you’re mine, all the damn time.”

This song is so chill and laid-back and I love that about it. I’m yet to find a lot that stands out about this track, but I’m still a fan.

6. “Look What You Made Me Do”

“I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me, I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams.”

This track isn’t a good representation of the album whatsoever. It does well as a lead single because it’s good for radio and to get people interested, but in comparison to the other songs on this album, this one lacks substance.

7. “So It Goes”

“You know I’m not a bad girl, but I do bad things for you.”

The overall sound and instrumentation of this track is my absolute favorite. This track clearly has its own, unique sound to it which makes it stand out quite a bit.

8. “Gorgeous”

“You’ve ruined my life by not being mine.”

I loved this song the first time I heard it and I still do. It’s the best single Taylor released before the album and still one of the best songs on the album overall.

9. “Getaway Car”

“I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason.”

Maybe it’s because this track is towards the middle of the album, but I typically forget it exists.

10. “King of My Heart”

“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep.”

At first I didn’t really like this song, but it’s starting to grow on me. Not only can you easily dance to this song (which is always a plus) but it’s also full of some stand-out lyrics.

11. “Dancing With Our Hands Tied”

“I’m a mess but I’m the mess that you wanted.”

The chorus of this song is so powerful and really stands out. It’s taken awhile for this song to grow on me, but it’s starting to for sure.

12. “Dress”

“Say my name and everything just stops, I don’t want you like a best friend. Only bought this dress so you could take it off.”

YES. JUST YES. This song is my favorite off of reputation. It’s basically the more mature version of Wildest Dreams, because there’s no doubt in your mind that this song is about sex.

13. “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”

“And here’s to my mama, had to listen to all this drama.”

I like this song because it’s funny and witty and clever. It’s not the deepest song on the album by any means but Taylor drops major tea in this track and it’s hilarious.

14. “Call It What You Want”

“I want to wear his initial on a chain ‘round my neck, not because he owns me, but because he really knows me.”

I really love this song. It’s a very realistic view of love, which many would say Taylor Swift lacks. It shows Taylor’s maturity as a person along with as an artist perfectly.

15. “New Year’s Day”

“Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you.”

This is one of the only slow songs on the album, but it ends the album hitting you right in the feels. This song has the perfect dash of old-Taylor feels and sound. Now, who is going to fall in love with me by New Year’s so I can play this song in the back of my mind?

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
