Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

I've been breakin' hearts a long time, and
Toyin' with them older guys
Just playthings for me to use
Something happened for the first time, in
The darkest little paradise
Shakin, pacin', I just need you

For you, I would cross the line
I would waste my time
I would lose my mind
They say, "She's gone too far this time"

Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

My name is whatever you decide
And I'm just gonna call you mine
I'm insane, but I'm your baby (your baby)
Echoes (echoes) of your name inside my mind
Halo, hiding my obsession
I once was poison ivy, but now I'm your daisy

And baby, for you, I (I) would (would) fall from grace
Just (just) to (to) touch your face
If (if) you (you) walk away
I'd beg you on my knees to stay

Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life (yeah, ooh)
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

I get so high, oh
Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
You're lovin' me
Trip of my life, oh
Every time you're, every time you're touchin' me
You're touchin' me

Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
Oh Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life
Usin' for the rest of my life, ohh-oh

Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right (doin' it right, no)
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life (oh)
Don't blame me, love made me crazy (ooh)
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right (you ain't doin' it right)
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for (I'll be usin') the rest of my life (I'll be usin')

I get so high, oh
Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
You're lovin' me




Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

Overall Meaning

"Don't Blame Me" by Taylor Swift is a song about the power of love and how it can make someone feel crazy, but they can't help but be addicted to it. The first verse describes how the singer has been toying with other people's hearts for a long time until she meets someone who completely changes her perspective on love in a beautiful way. The chorus then highlights the fact that love can make someone feel insane and that if it doesn't, then they aren't experiencing it in the right way. The singer compares love to a drug that she will be using for the rest of her life.


The second verse explains how the singer is willing to do anything for the person she loves, even if it means risking her own reputation and going against her traditional ideas of right and wrong. She just needs the person she loves and would do anything for them. The bridge delivers a beautiful sentiment of how she has been transformed by the love she has now in her life, with echoes of the person's name inside her mind and how she was once poisonous but has become something beautiful because of the person she is in love with.


Overall, "Don't Blame Me" is a love letter to the power of love and the transformation it can bring to someone's life, even if it seems crazy to those who don't understand it.

One thing I loved about Taylor's songs gaining hype in tiktok is that many are being introduced to her B-sides, she's an album artist and her non single tracks are really where it's at

@cornellia8206

I know!! I always hear people making fun of Taylor's songwriting, and how her songs are bad lol but it's actually due to the fact that she somehow almost always solo releases the worst or just okay tracks of her albums 😭
When the album comes out, she always exceeds expectations due to this.

Those tracks were not bad per se, it's just that in my opinion, there are way better tracks for solo release.

@ajsc11

Yeah and I hate some Swifties gatekeeping her songs, don't they want her underrated songs to get more attention? Whether it came from TikTok or not, the fact that the casuals knew her non-singles makes me happy.

@elizabethrose644

@@cornellia8206 i think that’s because artists almost never release their best or favorite tracks on their albums as singles, they release the ones that will do best on the radio. certain songs just have single vibes like ME! and Look what you made me do and 22. if she didn’t release those as singles but they were still on the album you’d be like “why the fuck do these even exist?”
