"Teardrops on My Guitar" is a song by American country pop singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The song was co-written by Swift, alongside Liz Rose and produced by Nathan Chapman with Swift's aid. "Teardrops on My Guitar" was released on February 19, 2007 by Big Machine Records, as the second single from Swift's eponymous debut studio album (2006). The song was later included on the international release of Swift's second studio album, Fearless (2008), and released as the third single from the album in the United Kingdom. It was inspired by Swift's experience with Drew Hardwick, a classmate of hers for whom she had feelings. He was completely unaware and continually spoke about his girlfriend to Swift, something she pretended to be endeared by. Years afterwards, Hardwick appeared at Swift's house, but Swift rejected him. Musically, the track is soft and is primarily guided by a gentle acoustic guitar. Critics have queried the song's classification as country music, with those in agreement (such as Grady Smith of Rolling Stone) citing the themes and narrative style as country-influenced and those opposed (such as Roger Holland of Popmatters) indicating the pop music production and instrumentation lack traditional country elements.

Song Lyrics





Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won`t see

That I want and I`m needing 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

That 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

[Chorus:]

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`d better hold him tight, give him all her love

Look in those beautiful eyes and know she`s lucky cause

[Repeat Chorus]

So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light

I`ll put his picture down and maybe

Get some sleep tonight

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.
