  • Lyrics
  • Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see
    That I want and I'm needing everything that we should be
    I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about
    And she's got everything that I have to live without

    Drew talks to me, I laugh 'cause it is just so funny
    That I can't even see anyone when he's with me
    He says he's so in love, he's finally got it right,
    I wonder if he knows he's all I think about at night

    He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
    The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
    He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

    Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can't breathe?
    And there he goes, so perfectly,
    The kind of flawless I wish I could be
    She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love
    Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky cause

    He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
    The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
    He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

    So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light
    I'll put his picture down and maybe
    Get some sleep tonight

    Because he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
    The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
    He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do
    He's the time taken up, but there's never enough
    And he's all that I need to fall into

    Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't seeWriter/s: Liz Rose, Taylor Alison Swift

The love of my life, my soul mate and who I thought I would spend the rest of my life with, Kale, is getting married in less than a month.
