Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see
What I want and I need
And everything that we should be

I'll bet she's beautiful
That girl he talks about
And she's got everything
That I have to live without


Drew talks to me
I have laugh 'cause it's just so funny
I can't even see
Anyone when he's with me


He says he's so in love
He's finally got it right
I wonder if he knows
He's all I think about at night

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

Drew walks by me
Can he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly
The kind of flawless I wish I could be

She better hold him tight
Give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes
And know she's lucky 'cause

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

So I drive home alone
As I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down
And maybe get some sleep tonight

'Cuz he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

He's the time taken up but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into
Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see

    the meaning of the song is that taylor is friends with this Drew guy but she likes him LIKES him, but he thinks they are just friends.
    so
    he falls in love with another girl and taylor pretends she is happy for them but she actually cries on her guitar

    yeah i felt like this when i got dumped for the popular girl at school
    my friends were all, 'he isnt good enough for you' but i secretly miss him :-(

    I'm pretty much hooked on this song coz it conveys a very sad feeling of a girl who's in love with her friend,Drew, but Drew is just too numb to see and feel it... I especially like the lines, "The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart" pertaining to Drew... 9sigh0 how I wish Drew would just realize that and make the girl's wish come true!

    I can totally relate to what she is going through. I felt like this with one of my guy friends. Austin would always talk about his girlfriend. I liked him more than he knew. We used to be more than friends but its not like that anymore. I still really like him, though. K.T. + A.H.
