"Troublemaker" as written by Claude Kelly, Breyan Stanley Isaac, Steve Robson, Oliver Stanley Murs and Tramar Dillard....
You’re a troublemaker (You’re a troublemaker)

You ain't nothing but a troublemaker girl

You had me hooked again from the minute you sat down
The way you bite your lip
Got my head spinnin’ around
After a drink or two
I was putty in your hands
I don’t know if I have the strength to stand

Oh oh oh, trouble troublemaker yeah
That’s your middlename, oh oh oh
I know you’re no good but you’re stuck in my brain
And I wanna know, why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
Whoa, my mind keeps saying "Run as fast as you can"
I say I’m done but then you pull me back
Whoa, I swear you’re giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

It’s like you’re always there in the corners of my mind
I see a silhouette every time I close my eyes
There must be poison in those finger tips of yours
'Cause I keep comin’ back again for more

Oh oh oh, trouble troublemaker yeah
That’s your middlename, oh oh oh
I know you’re no good but you’re stuck in my brain
And I wanna know, why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
Whoa, my mind keeps saying "Run as fast as you can"
I say I’m done but then you pull me back
Whoa, I swear you’re giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
Whoa, my mind keeps saying Run as fast as you can (Troublemaker)
I say I’m done but then you pull me back
Whoa, I swear you’re giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

Maybe I’m insane
'Cause I keep doing the same damn thing
Thinkin' one day we gonna change
But you know just how to work that back
And make me forget my name
What the hell you do I won’t remember
I’ll be gone until November
And you’ll show up again next summer, yeah
Typical middle name is Prada
Fit you like a glove girl I’m sick of the drama you’re a troublemaker
But damn girl it’s like I love the trouble
And I can’t even explain why

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
Whoa, my mind keeps saying "Run as fast as you can" (Troublemaker)
I say I'm done but then you pull me back
Whoa, I swear you’re giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
Whoa, my mind keeps saying "Run as fast as you can" (Troublemaker)
I say I'm done but then you pull me back
Whoa, I swear you’re giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

    General CommentThis song is about a nice guy (Such as Olly) falling for a more rebellious type of a girl. He just can't seem to get her out of his head, he is so crazy about her! You could basically already tell this if you watched the official music video. Here's a link!

    My InterpretationTo most people, the meaning of Troublemaker is fairly obvious - see other comments. However, for me the song has a different resonance. As anyone who has heard even a snatch of the song will know, it's horrendously catchy. And I have a particular talent for getting it stuck in my head. One of my delightful friends has a corresponding talent for working the song title into casual conversation, resulting in me getting it on loop... for hours. So I think this song is about a troublemaker annoying her friend by getting a song stuck in his head. The most annoying part is that the lyrics actually work with that interpretation - and as soon as you realise that, you are guaranteed to have it stuck in your head... again...

    Song MeaningIn a nutshell, the person singing falls in love with a troublemaker! (who would have guessed, right?) He likes the girl even though he knows she will get her into trouble if they start dating. In a strange way, the singer is attracted to the rebelliousness of the girl, so it becomes even harder for him to ignore her.
