Taylor Swift’s 2014 album, “1989,” received high reception upon its release. Twelve-year-old Swifties rejoiced to the allure of “Shake it Off” and fourteen-year-olds saw their dreams come true in “Wildest Dreams.” Yet, the Taylor Swift Recording Team forgot an important bonus track that contains important information.

“Blank Disc,” the counterpart to “Blank Space” was sadly set aside, due to “anticipated lack of interest from her fan-base” said former Swift manager, Rick Barker in an interview with Just Now. Apparently, Swift’s management thought that her audience would actually enjoy listening to songs like “All you had to do was stay” and “I wish you would.” While these songs do explore the deep, powerful themes of relationships, breakups and love, they are a bit too similar to Swift’s earlier songs. Although her sound and vocal technique has improved considerably, Taylor Swift is still the same All-American girl CMT fell in love with in 2005.

Yes, that’s right CMT. Remember that everyone? T.Swift was originally a country singer (gasp!), but I digress…

Thus, “Blank Disk” is filled with the raw truth and honesty that Swifties of all ages find “relatable.” Written in common language, “Blank Disk” features references to social media and pop culture. Fans learn even more about Taylor Swift upon listening to the song. It would have offered a fresh new twist to to Swift’s music. Yet, sadly as Barker said “Some things are worth sharing and other things are best kept to oneself.”

Fortunately, Everythingtyouneedtoknow.com granted Smith College free access to the lyrics of “Blank Disk.” Read it while you can!

“Blank Disk”

I like your sperrys and your tie

You’ll keep me in the spotlight

A basic girl and a basic guy

Look at me in my

white nail polish and plain tee,

wow, I love Abercrombie

Wait let’s stop to take a selfie (for the insta)

Cute face, mystic eyes

Thanks for helping my career survive

Already been spotted twice

Don’t you dare get cold feet

so smile for the camera

I’ll keep you for 3 weeks

Oh wait no, 6 months won’t hurt?

cuz you haven’t said yes but I already love you

So it’s gonna be forever

or I’ll write a brand new song

you can text me when it’s over

so I can find another one

Gotta love these Starbucks lovers

Tall Caramel Macchiato

Cause you know I love attention

And you need the fame

‘But I’m almost 30

so you’d think I’d have learnt by now

Wow, almost 30

maybe I should settle down?

Gotta love these Starbucks lovers

They’ll tell you I’m insane

But I’ve got a blank disk baby

where I’ll sing ‘bout you

Vintage photo shoot outside

Trying to keep you interested in me

Staged kisses, pretty lies

Everyone is shipping us

and I’ll try way too hard

to be the girl of your dreams

Wait the worst is yet to come, oh no

Screaming, crying, way too clingy

I’m not as nice as I appear to be

Random fights brought alight

Leaves you wanting to find

another girl,

more interesting

But you’ll come back each time you leave

cause we need the publicity and you signed a contract

So I’ll be with you for longer

Or I’ll bash you on social media

Your reputation will be ruined

Just ask the second Jonas

I’m such a Starbucks lover

I go there everyday

Cause you know that I’m so basic

And they serve green tea

I’m not that young, but I’m reckless

my 20s flew by so fast

but I have my T.Swift squad

To make me feel 21

Gotta love those Starbucks lovers

They’ll tell you I’m insane (Insane)

But I’ve got a blank disk baby

where I’ll sing ‘bout you

I don’t really know how to date well

Don’t say I didn’t say I didn’t warn ya

It’s kind of a little embarrassing

Don’t say I didn’t say I didn’t warn ya

So it’s gonna be forever

or I’ll write a brand new song

you can text me when it’s over

so I can find another one

Gotta love these Starbucks lovers

Tall Caramel Macchiato

Cause you know I love attention

And you need the fame

‘But I’m almost 30

so you’d think I’d have learnt by now

Wow, almost 30

maybe I should settle down?

Gotta love these Starbucks lovers

They’ll tell you I’m insane

But I’ve got a blank disk baby

where I’ll sing ‘bout you
