    G                Em     C        D

       Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see

    G                  Em               C     D

        That I want and I’m needing, everything that we should be

    Em                                C

          I'll bet she’s beautiful, that girl he talks about

    G                                             D

        And she’s got everything that I have to live without

     

    G                Em     C    D

       Drew talks to me, I laugh cause it’s so funny

    G                  Em         C    D

        That I can’t even see,    anyone when he’s with me

    Em                                C

        He says he’s so in love, he’s finally got it right

    G                                       D

       I wonder if he knows he’s all I think about at night

     

    Chorus:

    G                                    D

        He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar

    Em                                           C

        The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star

    G                                  D                                       Em       C

       He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do

     

    G                Em      C    D

       Drew walks by me,    can he tell that I can’t breathe?

    G                         Em             C                   D

      And there he goes so perfectly, the kind of flawless I wish I could be

    Em                                     C

       She’d better hold him tight, give him all her love

    G                                        D

       Look in those beautiful eyes and know she’s lucky ‘cause

     

    Chorus

     

    Instrumental:

    / G - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / x2

     

    Em                               C

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

    G                                           D

       I put his picture down, and maybe get some sleep tonight

     

    G                                             D

      ‘Cause he’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar

    Em                                     C

        The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart

    G                                  D                                           Em     C

       He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do

                  G                                       D        

    He’s the time, taken up, but there’s never enough

                 Em                          C

    And he’s all that I need to fall into

     

    G                Em     C      D (ritard)                     G (hold)

      Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see
