Hey Stephen
I know looks can be deceiving
But I know I saw a light in you
As we walked
We were talking
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 been feelin' since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can help myself

Hey Stephen
I been holdin back this feelin'
So I got some things to say to you, ha
I've seen it all so I thought that I'd
Never see 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 leavin
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 been feelin' since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can't help myself

The dim in the street lights
You're perfect for me
Why aren't you here tonight?
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?

Ha-ha!
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 been feelin' since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm 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 been feelin' since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can help myself
Myself...

    I think this song is all about how Stephen (her bf, I think) is trying to act really nice to get Taylor back because he wasn't good enough for her, but she's only taking him back if he shows his real self and lives his own life.

    Okay, first of all, thererealsugarbaybee, wtf is your problem? Taylor Swift is a pretty good singer, she puts a lot of effort into her songs. So what went up your ass and died? Nobody gives a damn about what you have to say. You probably have nothing better to do than to look up singers/bands and leave offensive comments, if you don't like her then; oh effing well. You know just by saying that, it shows a lot about you. Anyways, YAY! FOR TAYLOR SWIFT, SHE'S AWESOME AND HAS A LOT OF TALENT! I love her and she has a great personality! P.S. thererealsugarbaybee, if your going to make a statement, at least try to use proper spelling.
