Hey Stephen

Album: Fearless (2008)
Charted: 94
  • Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceiving
    But I know I saw a light in you
    And as we walked we would talk
    And I didn't say half the things I wanted to
    Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window
    I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold
    Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believing
    I don't always have to be alone

    'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
    Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
    Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
    Can't help it if there's no one else
    Mmm I can't help myself

    Hey Stephen, I've been holding back this feeling
    So I've got some things to say to you
    I've seen it all, so I thought
    But I've never seen nobody shine the way you do
    The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name
    It's beautiful, wonderful, don't you ever change
    Hey Stephen, why are people always leaving
    I think you and I should stay the same

    Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
    Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
    Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
    Can't help it if there's no one else
    Mmm I can't help myself

    They're dimming the street lights, you're perfect for me
    Why aren't you here tonight?
    I'm waiting alone now so come on and come out
    And pull me near and shine, shine, shine

    Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons
    Why I should be the one you choose
    All those other girls, well they're beautiful
    But would they write a song for you?

    Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
    Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
    Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
    Can't help it if there's no one else

    I can't help myself if you look like an angel
    Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
    Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
    Can't help it if there's no one else
    Mmm I can't help myself
    myself
    Mm
    I can't help myself
    I can't help myself
    Oh, Oh,
    Mm

  • Marivic Mago from Basud Camrines NorteBeautiful.
  • Radu from Reidsville, Ncwhat im not getting is why would anyone dump taylor swift? seriously.
  • Brittany from Atlanta, GaIt's written for Love and Theft's Stephen Barker Liles. She developed a crush after they went on tour with her and that's how this song started.
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlIn the booklet that comes w/the CD, there are hidden messages in the lyrics. You take all the capital letters and put them in order to spell a phrase. Hey Stephen's message is: LOVE AND THEFT.
    ...weird.
  • Ciarra from Lawrenceville, IlIs this song about Stephen Coletti
