ohai, I’m in High School

Stop being cynical for one second and listen to this song. Tell me that this wasn’t you in high school and you’d play this song on repeat as you fell asleep at night as you thought about how perfect you would be together and if he could just get over the fact that you were friends then he’d know you really should be together-together and then as you drove by his house every day after school and then after you dropped your friends off at night you’d go by his house again to see if he was home or if his car was home and then you’d drive by the back of his house to see if the light in his room was on or maybe the light from his tv or computer and god can you believe her car is still parked outside it’s freaking 3 AM are you kidding me she’s not even cute!

Or was that just me?

Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me
You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, She’s upset
She’s going off about something that you said
She doesnt get your humour like I do

I’m in the room, its a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music she doesnt 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’ll wake up and find
That what you’re lookin 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 cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on the park bench thinkin to myself
Hey isnt this easy?

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I havent seen it in awhile, since she brought you down
You say you find I know you better than that
Hey, Whatcha doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll 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 not 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 understand 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

  1. I actually very much like this song. Though it reminds me more of the movie Some Kind of Wonderful rather than my own life, since I never had a crush on a boy from school that dated any cheerleader types.

  2. From your friend, Veronica
    I SO had crushes like this!! I did things like drove to West Frankfort and Carbondale semi-regularly to see if they were home =) I had a major crush in HS but of course he was just my friend and I was there to LISTEN when the twits would break his heart. Though now I see pics of him and his wife, who looks like a man, and laugh… =) I would have never listened to this song otherwise, thanks for sharing!
