D (2)                                                                  A (2)

You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, she’s upset

                                                             Em (2)

She’s going off about something that you said

                                                         G (2)

‘Cause she doesn’t get your humor like I do

D (2)                                                A (2)

I’m in the room it’s a typical Tuesday night

                                                                  Em (2)

I’m listening to the kind of music she doesn’t like

                                                      G (2)

And she’ll never know your story like I do

 

      Em                            G

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts

D                                 A

She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers

Em                                              G

Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find

                         A (2) (hold)

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

 

Chorus:

                  D (2)

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you

A (2)                                                Em (2)

Been here all along, so why can’t you see?

                        G (2 hold)                    D (2)

You belong with me, you belong with me

 

D (2)                                                              A (2)

Walkin’ the streets with you and your worn out jeans

                                                              Em (2)

I can’t help thinking this is how it ought to be

                                                            G (2)

Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself   Hey isn’t this easy

       D (2)                                                              A (2)

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town

                                                                        Em (2)

I haven’t seen it in a while since she brought you down 

 

You say you’re fine, I know you better then that

G (2)

Hey whatcha doing with a girl like that

 


Em                           G

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers

D                                 A

She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers

Em                                              G

Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find

                         A (2) (hold)

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

 

Chorus:

                  D (2)

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you

A (2)                                                Em (2)

Been here all along, so why can’t you see?

                       G (2)

You belong with me

D (2)

Standing by and waiting at your back door

A (2)                                                   Em (2)

All this time how could you not know, baby

                        G (2)

You belong with me, you belong with me

                              Em                                  G

Oh I remember you drivin’ to my house  In the middle of the night

            D                                                     A

I’m the one who makes you laugh   When you know you’re about to cry

         Em                                              G

And I know your favorite songs   And you tell me about your dreams

           G                                              A (2) (hold)

Think I know where you belong   Think I know it’s with me

 

               D (2)

Can’t you see that I’m the one who understands you

You belong with me, you belong with me

                        A (2)

You belong with me

                                              Em (2)

Have you ever thought just maybe

                        G (2)                       D (hold & end)

You belong with me, you belong with me
