You, with your words like knives
And swords and weapons that you use against me
You have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feeling like a nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard
Calling me out when I'm wounded
You, picking on the weaker man

Well you can take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation
You have pointed out my flaws again
As if I don't already see them
I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now
'Cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar
Talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
But nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing
But all you are is mean

All you are is mean
And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so?...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city (Why you gotta be so?...)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (Why you gotta be so?...)
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (Why you gotta be so?...)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

Taylor Swift, Savvy Dealmaker

The pop superstar has (again) shown she can bend the music industry to her will.

Yesterday, Swift finally landed on Universal Music Group's Republic Records for her highly anticipated new contract. But on her own terms...

Stipulation 1: If UMG sells its stake in recently public Spotify, the proceeds must be redistributed to the label's artists.

Stipulation 2: Swift will own her own masters (aka the original recordings of her songs) going forward.

Zoom out: Swift has used her tremendous leverage (she's got 113 million Instagram followers) to bring about change in the streaming era. She previously withheld her music from Spotify and boycotted Apple Music over their financial arrangements with artists...but Swift has since returned to both streamers after scoring wins.

Now, Big Machine Records will join John Mayer and Calvin Harris on Swift's list of exes. And FWIW, the label—which signed Swift when she was 15—has reportedly been floating a sale for more than $300 million.
