You belong with me

You're on the phone with your girlfriend once again

She's going on about something that you said

She doesn't get you humor like I do

But you can't see that, can you?

I'm on the couch; it's a typical Saturday night

I'm watching the kind of movies she doesn't like

No, she'll never know your story like I do

But you're still so blind, aren't you?

Short skirts, tight shirts, high heels are her style

Blue jeans, loose tees, old sneakers are my own design

Still, you can't see what's right in front of you

And there's absolutely nothing else I can do

I watch you leave for your date with her

I see you walk out the door and into your car

You drive away without once looking back

Giving me a play by play when you got home

You're grinning like there's no tomorrow

Your happiness takes away all my sorrow

Still maybe you'll never see

Truth is you're better off with me

She is flirty and blonde and incredibly shallow

She's cheer captain and so superficial

You say you're fine, I know you better than that

What are you doing with a girl like that?

And I'm the only one who understands you

I've been here all along so why can't you see?

I'm dreaming bout day when you wake up and find

That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

Standing by, just waiting at your back door

All this time how could you not know?

Have you ever thought just maybe…?

You belong with me

I remember you were driving to my house in the middle of the night

I'm the one who makes you laugh even though you're bout to cry

I know your favorite songs and you tell me bout your dreams

I think I know where you belong; I think it's with me

Can't you see…?

I'm the on who understands you

I've been here all along, now can you see?

You belong with me
