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

    This song is awesome. Ican relate to it because I like this guy who's my friend. But my other two best friends like him too. He said he liked one of my bf's a little I was very jealous. I don't know what to do. I can't tell him because I'm very nervous and think he might say no. But I like him very much. I might tell him someday when I get the courage you never know.

    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!

    This sounds like what I'm going thru. She really likes this guy and he was one of her friends but then she finds out that hes going out with this other girl. She gets really sad and cries, she also thinks that this guy that she likes it a great guy nice and funny. The smile fades from her face the moment she realizes their going out but with her hes going out with a girl she doesn't know so she doesn't know what to do.
    I love you josh!

    Well, this kinda matches the predicament I'm in right now, when my ex and I broke up we still remainded best friends, he's got a new girlfriend now, and the part that say " she better hold him tight give him all her lover look in those beautiful eyes..." is just exactly what I would like to say to her, cause she is lucky to have such a wonderful guy like him. All I can do is cry and tell him I am over him when he asks me if I am!
