LyricsEdit

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood

Did you have to do this? I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shining? Now it's all rusted
Did you have to hit me, where I'm weak? Baby, I couldn’t breathe
And rub it in so deep, salt in the wound like you're laughing right at me
Oh, it's so sad to think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood, hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

Did you think we’d be fine? Still got scars on my back from your knife
So don’t think it's in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last now.
Did you think it all through? All these things will catch up to you
And time can heal but this won't, so if you’re coming my way just don’t
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we’ve got bad blood

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that you live with ghosts
If you love like that blood runs cold

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love (mad love)
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them (think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done (look what you’ve done)
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood, hey

Taylor:

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them

Kendrick:
I can't take it back, look where I'm at
We was on D like DOC, remember that?
My TLC was quite OD, ID my facts
Now POV of you and me, similar Iraq
I don't hate you but I hate to critique, overrate you
These beats of a dark heart, use basslines to replace you
Take time and erase you, love don't hear no more
No I don't fear no more, better yet respect ain't quite sincere no more

Taylor:
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood, hey
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

Kendrick:
Remember when you tried to write me off?
Remember when you thought I'd take a loss?
Don't you remember? You thought I would need yah
Follow procedure, remember? Oh wait you got amnesia
It was my season for battle wounds, battle scars
Body bumped, bruised
Stabbed in the back; brimstone, fire jumping through
Still, all my life, I got money and power
And you gotta live with the bad blood now

Taylor:
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times, you and I

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we’ve got bad blood

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts
(You forgive, you forget but you never let it go)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that you live with ghosts
If you love like that blood runs cold

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love (mad love)
So take a look what you’ve done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them (think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done (look what you’ve done)
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we've got bad blood, hey
