I like my version of the lyrics better. “Got a long list of ex-lovers” may be relatable, but so is coffee.
Okay, so I’m not exactly a Taylor Swift fan (my friend Michelle will tell you how much I hate hate hate hate hate her song “Shake It Off”) but you can’t turn on the car radio without hearing “Blank Space” and I have to be honest, her tunes from the album “1989” that pop into my Lorde Pandora station are pretty fly.
Yeah, I said it.
Anyway, so I often catch “Blank Space” running through my head, or being hummed by my vocal chords. It’s a catchy tune. And I thought “Come on all you Starbucks lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane. I’ve got a blank space baby, and I’ll write your name” made sense because the cup is blank until they Sharpie it up with whatever name they think you said. Or whatever name they want to write, just to mess with you.
I can see Swift as a perky barista, can’t you?
