Taylor Swift – How You Get The Girl lyrics

[Verse:]
Stand there like a ghost
Shaking from the rain (rain)
She'll open up the door and say, "Are you insane?" ('sane)

Say "it's been a long six months"
And you were too afraid to tell her what you want
And that's how it works
That's how you get the girl


[Pre-Chorus:]
And then you say, I want you for worse or for better
I would wait forever and ever
Broke your heart, I'll put it back together
I would wait forever and ever


[Chorus:]
And that's how it works
And how you get the girl, girl
And that's how it works
It's how you get the girl, girl

[Verse 2:]
Remind her how it used to be (be)
With pictures in frames of kisses on cheeks, cheeks

Tell her how you must have lost your mind
When you left her all alone and never told her why
And that's how it works
That's how you lost the girl

[Pre-Chorus:]
And now you say, I want you for worse or for better
I would wait forever and ever
Broke your heart, I'll put it back together
I would wait forever and ever

[Chorus:]
And that's how it works
And how you get the girl, girl
And that's how it works
And how you get the girl, girl
Yeah, Yeah

[Bridge:]
And you know that I don't want you to go
Remind me how it used to be
Pictures in frames of kisses on cheeks
And say you want me


[Pre-Chorus:]
And then you say, I want you for worse or for better
I would wait forever and ever
Broke your heart, I'll put it back together
I want you forever and ever

[Chorus:]
And that's how it works
That's how you get the girl, girl
And that's how it works
That's how you get the girl, girl (2x)

[Outro]
That's how it works
That's how you got the girl

    It could mean that one boy loves 'the girl' which is obviously Taylor. It also tells how the guy got her, then he broke her heart, got her again, then eventually lost her. It also shows that the guy actually loves the girl but then end up heartbroken. This is from my understanding.

    Taylor is showing how to get a girl, and how to lose her. Simple as that. You make a mistake that breaks her heart it also leaves scars. Put her heart back together she'll fall in love and put her entire trust into you again. She also uses 'the girl' as not someone else, but actually her. If a guy waits forever and ever girls, he's a keeper and don't ever let him go.
