Taylor Swift is an outstanding songwriter, singer, and entertainer - perhaps one of a kind. This song is one of her best, a good example of how she expresses herself concerning events in her life. I give it 5 stars and it would be more if that was possible.

"Mean"

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 I'm nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard
Calling me out when I'm wounded
You picking on the weaker man

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 ol' 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 ol' 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?

Wow!! She is "right on the money" with this one. I love how she expresses our innermost thoughts and feelings. She deserves all of the accolades she has and will receive!

I had never heard this song before I heard my 3-year-old granddaughter singing it and I thought the words were horrible, but when I listened to the actual song, I see that it isn't as bad as I had thought at first. Lili is so adorable singing it with her little guitar, so I went ahead and got the single for her. She absolutely loves Taylor Swift, so I am hoping that she keeps up her image and is a responsible role-model for all of the little-bitty girls who adore her.

I love this song. The ballad is about a young country girl who grows up with a mean older brother (my take on it anyway, could be boyfriend) who tries to steal her dream but rises past it and becomes a success while bully brother/boyfriend is still stuck wallowing in nothingness. Taylor created a hit with which just about everyone can identify. She has a remarkable talent.

This song is, in a way, telling a mutual story a lot of people face in life at one time or another. I think Taylor Swift hit the nail right on the head with this piece and did an excellent energetic job at it! I wasn't too keen on Taylor Swift at first, but this is one of a few, as of yet, that I cannot stop listening to over and over again! She's AMAZING!!
