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 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

LIVE video

I'm almost sure that on this digital picture created by Charmed-Belle there is exactly Taylor Swift  and at the same time just a girl who is the character of this song.




I'd like to put here her own description:

I love this one soooo much. It's like my fave one. I believe I actually spent the most time on this one along side "Tell Me Why." When I heard "Teardrops on my Guitar" for the very first time, I thought waterfall coming out of a guitar, wierd huh I know but oh so cool. I have no clue why I was thinking nature goddess but I think it works pretty darn well, love it. Anyways, she seems so down in the song, i figured I would tell her you gotta have faith. Faith that the perfect one will come along, the one that will give you that fairytale ending, so if you look carefully on the guitarstrap on the right side there is the Japanese symbol for faith and on the left there is a pair of angel wings.

*note although noone can probably read it, the fretboard reads "And softly her teardrops fell"*


Also there is another good "illustration" to this song. It is the handmade lariat with Swarowski crystals as teardrops created by
lilyladyblue. As for me this necklace shows what's in the girl's heart and what is hidden behind the smile this song is about.
