"You Belong With Me"

Swift’s massive hit became a hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs and Adult Contemporary charts, and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 charts. Here is a story, surprise surprise, from a personal experience; in the past, she overheard a male friend getting into a wildly intense phone conversation with his girlfriend, and as the conversation unfolded, she felt that the girl on the other end’s fury was completely unwarranted and that ultimately, she did not appreciate how nice the guy was. She further wondered why he would put up with such abuse, and was inspired to incorporate this feeling into “You Belong With Me.” While her story says that this was a friend, she either really had romantic feelings for him while writing the song (which is so cool), or she pretended to be someone who had romantic feelings – either way, it all went into this fascinating examination from afar of a nice guy who has a secret admirer; “You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset, she's going off about something that you said, 'cause she doesn't get your humor like I do, I'm in my room, it's a typical Tuesday night, I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like, and she'll never know your story like I do'.” This is a deep admiration, and very charming to hear. She imagines herself as the least popular girl who truly understands the popular guy, yet he is under the spell of the most popular girl; “But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts, she's cheer captain, and I'm on the bleachers, dreaming about the day when you wake up, and find that what you're looking for has been here the whole time.” This is a textbook high-school movie scenario, about the ugly duckling who hopes her love will shine through. If the jock is smart, he will see her heart, rather than the popular girl’s assets. Besides, if he really opens his eyes, he will see that both options in the video look like Taylor Swift because they are Taylor Swift.

Lyrics

"You Belong With Me"

[Verse 1]
You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
She's going off about something that you said
'Cause 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 she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do

[Pre-Chorus]
But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself
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're fine, I know you better than that
Hey, whatcha doing with a girl like that?

[Pre-Chorus]
She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]
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
Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know, baby?
You belong with me, you belong with me

[Bridge]
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 'bout to cry
And I know your favorite songs
And you tell me 'bout your dreams
Think I know where you belong
Think I know it's with me

[Chorus]
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 and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know, baby?
You belong with me, you belong with me

[Outro]
You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me?
You belong with me
