This week, I decided to go with a great song from Taylor's Fearless album.



Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
She's going off about something that you said
'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do
I'm in the room, it's a typical Tuesday night
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do

[Pre-Chorus]
But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me, you belong with me

[Verse 2]
Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself
Hey, isn't this easy?
And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down
You say you're fine, I know you better than that
Hey, whatcha doing with a girl like that?

[Pre-Chorus]
She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me
Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know, baby?
You belong with me, you belong with me

[Bridge]
Oh, I remember you driving to my house
In the middle of the night
I'm the one who makes you laugh
When you know you're 'bout to cry
And I know your favorite songs
And you tell me 'bout your dreams
Think I know where you belong
Think I know it's with me

[Chorus]
Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me
Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know, baby?
You belong with me, you belong with me

[Outro]
You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me?
You belong with me

Has this song aged well? Is it a favorite?

I adore You Belong With Me SO much, a major Taylor classic for me. wub.gif wub.gif the song is just fabulous, the pre-chorus is SO CATCHY. I will literally start dancing & miming along the moment I hear it wub.gif The chorus is fabulous and I adore the verses too. the production is so good & I love Taylor's vocals on this <3 I'd say it's definitely in my top 25 songs of hers of all time! and it's aged SO well *.*

I watched the hell out of that video (tho more during 2012-2015 than at time of release), it's so iconic and easily one of her best wub.gif I love how she plays both character, the signs are iconic and I love how referenced it still is in pop culture today <3 SO many iconic outfits *.* I love how this is one of the only pre 2010 songs to have its video pass 1 bil views on YouTube! A very deserving winner of a VMA award kink.gif

lemme go give this another stream now x

This is my favourite pre-'Red' Taylor single and probably always will be *.*

This was my personal breakthrough when it comes to Taylor's music. I liked her before, but this was the first song I loved.

I really wish this was a massive smash in the UK, it feels so much bigger than its peak reflects! sad.gif

Her second best single behind Love Story.

It truly helped her become mainstream huge.
