Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "I Knew You Were Trouble" is one of Taylor Swift's less sunny tunes, with all of the lyrics focused on feeling terrible about being dumped by a notorious lady-killer. While the track lacks profanity and graphic adult content, lines like "I'm lying on the cold hard ground" and "I'm drowning" reveal the painful side of breakups.
What's the story?
"I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE" is a track from the fourth full-length album, Red, by country superstar Taylor Swift. Once again, Swift sings about romantic rejection, belting out some of her strongest lines yet about a rogue ladies' man she decides to date against her better judgment.
Is it any good?
More pop-flavored than some of the country singles ("Red") from this album, "I Knew You Were Trouble" has a rapid-fire hook that quickly gets under your skin. And Swift's stronger-than-usual vocals demonstrate again that she's at her best when she's fired up.
