Taylor Swift "You Belong With Me" Lyrics

"You Belong With Me" lyrics
by Taylor Swift

You’re on the phone with your girl friend, she’s upset
She’s going off about something that you said
She doesn’t get your humor like I do

I’m in the room, it’s a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music that she doesn’t like
And she’ll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear t- shirts
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you wake me up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walkin the streets with you in your worn out jeans
I can’t help thinking this is how it thought to be
Laughing on the park bench thinkin to my self
Hey isn’t this easy?

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven’t seen it in a while, since she brought you down
You say you find I know you better than that
Hey, whatcha doing girl like that ?

She wear high heels, I wear sneakers
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standin by, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you know that?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re about to cry
I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong. I think I know it’s with me.
Can’t you see that I’m the one who understands you?
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standing by or waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me

Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me

My girls, Isabela and Yana (9 and 10 years old) just love this song! They can sing it all day! But they especially love singing it in the car at the backseat. It has great melody that my girls enjoy. I kind of enjoy it too.

Swift became inspired to write "You Belong with Me" after she overheard a male friend of hers speaking to his girlfriend through a phone call. He acted defensive as his girlfriend yelled at him, and said to her, "No, baby...I had to get off the phone really quickly... I tried to call you right back... Of course I love you. More than anything! Baby, I’m so sorry." Out of the sympathy she felt towards him in the situation, Swift developed a concept for a song. In a writing session with co-writer Liz Rose, Swift explained the situation along with her idea and conceived the song's opening line, "You’re on the phone with your girlfriend / she’s upset, going off about something that you said." Together, they developed a story line, which described Swift being in love with the male friend and her having the desire for him to breakup with his current girlfriend for her. Swift described the song's concept as "basically about wanting someone who is with this girl who doesn't appreciate him at all. Basically like 'girl-next-door-itis.' You like this guy who you have for your whole life, and you know him better than she does but somehow the popular girl gets the guy every time." Swift recalled, "It was really fun for us to write the line, 'She wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts'." "You Belong with Me" was first released as a promotional single from Fearless on November 4, 2008 as part of Countdown to Fearless, an exclusive campaign by the iTunes Store; the song was then released as the third single from Fearless on April 21, 2009.
