Examples of Figurative Language
Examples of Mood
"Saw you there and I thought
Oh my God, look at that face
You look like my next mistake
Love's a game, wanna play?"
Implying that she is attracted to this guy and wants to start a relationship with him.
"Screaming, crying, perfect storms
I can make all the tables turn
Rose garden filled with thorns
Keep you second guessing like
"Oh my God, who is she?"
I get drunk on jealousy" which lets the listeners know that the relation ship is now falling apart because she is jealous.

Examples of foreshadowing
"Wait, the worst is yet to come, oh no" which warns the listener that the song is about to take a turn for the worst. She later says "you'll come back each time you leave." implying that maybe their relationship was not ended by the fight and they will get back together.
"'Cause, darling, I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream." is a simile where Taylor is comparing how she is on the inside, a nightmare, vs. how she looks on the outside, a daydream.
"'Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game." is an analogy about how she loves the guys and dating them and the guys love the game of "love." and "playing" girls.
