Taylor Swift – Mastermind Lyrics

Taylor Swift – Mastermind Lyrics

Once upon a time, the planets and the fates
And all the stars aligned
You and I ended up in the same room
At the same time

And the touch of a hand lit the fuse
Of a chain reaction of countermoves
To assess the equation of you
Checkmate, I couldn’t lose

What if I told you none of it was accidental?
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascading in the line

What if I told you I’m the mastermind?
And now you’re mine
It was all by design
‘Cause I’m a mastermind

You see, all the wisest women had to do it this way
‘Cause we were born to be the pawn in every lover’s game

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
Strategy sets the scene for the tale
I’m the wind and I’m free, flowing sails
In the liquor of our cocktails

What if I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, I knew I wanted your body?
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascading in the line

What if I told you I’m a mastermind?
And now you’re mine
It was all my design
‘Cause I’m a mastermind

No one wanted to play with me as a little kid
So I’ve been scheming like a criminal ever since
To make them love me and make it seem effortless
Is this the first time I feel the need to confess?
And I swear, I’m only cryptic and Machiavellian ’cause I care

So I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork and then, saw a wild smirk
On your face, you knew the entire time

You knew that I’m a mastermind
And now you’re mine
Yeah, all you did was smile
‘Cause I’m a mastermind
