"I knew you were trouble"? This is the name of a song from Taylor Swift. Is 'trouble" a adjective or a noun here? What does it mean?Thanks!

"A person is trouble" is a colloquial way of saying that a person is troublesome (adjective). "Trouble" here is an uncountable noun and so never comes with "a".
