  • He is sensible and so incredible
    And all my single friends are jealous
    He says everything I need to hear and it's like
    I couldn't ask for anything better
    He opens up my door and I get into his car
    And he says you look beautiful tonight
    And I feel perfectly fine

    But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    And it's two AM and I'm cursing your name
    You're so in love that you act insane
    And that's the way I loved you
    Breakin' down and coming undone
    It's a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that's the way I loved you

    He respects my space
    And never makes me wait
    And he calls exactly when he says he will
    He's close to my mother
    Talks business with my father
    He's charming and endearing
    And I'm comfortable

    But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    And it's two AM and I'm cursing your name
    You're so in love that you act insane
    And that's the way I loved you
    Breakin' down and coming undone
    It's a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that's the way I loved you

    He can't see the smile I'm faking
    And my heart's not breaking
    'Cause I'm not feeling anything at all
    And you were wild and crazy
    Just so frustrating, intoxicating
    Complicated, got away by some mistake and now

    I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    It's two AM and I'm cursing your name
    I'm so in love that I acted insane
    And that's the way I loved you
    Breakin' down and coming undone
    It's a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that's the way I loved you

    Whoa whoa oh, oh
    Whoa
    And that's the way I loved you
    Oh oh-oh, ooh
    Oh oh-oh, whoa
    Never knew I could feel that much
    And that's the way I loved you Writer/s: John Rich, Taylor Swift

  • Ariani from IndonesiaI think this song is perfect for the movie Leap Year starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode
  • Natalie from Czech RepublicI think this song fits perfectly for Gilmore girls when Rory is in a relationship with Dean but she is in love with Jess.
  • Abby from Manila, PhilippinesSo is it really about two guys or just one? Like how Mr. Perfect is so charming but there's nothing and that you had more feelings for the guy who was frustrating????
    Please answer soon!
  • Sardian from South Park, Cobut i do like that song, but not near as much as patty cake sang by barney (my best friend, and no she is not a purple dino, she the squirrel that lives in a tree in my yard)
  • Zoey from Alanta, GaIt sounds like the song was ment for Taylor (Lautner) if you ask me...
  • Ashleigh from ?????, MoI love the concept of this song. Sometimes Mr. Perfect isn't enough.
  • Anita from Citrus Heights, Cathis song is pretty cool.
    i ttly understand wat shes saying(:
  • 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. The Way I Loved You's message is: WE CANT GO BACK.
