"Hey Stephen" as written by and Taylor Swift....
Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceiving
But I know I saw a light in you
And as we walked we would talk
And I didn't say half the things I wanted to
Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window
I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold
Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believing
I don't always have to be alone

'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can't help myself

Hey Stephen, I've been holding back this feeling
So I've got some things to say to you
I've seen it all, so I thought
But I've never seen nobody shine the way you do
The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name
It's beautiful, wonderful, don't you ever change
Hey Stephen, why are people always leaving
I think you and I should stay the same

Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can't help myself

They're dimming the street lights, you're perfect for me
Why aren't you here tonight?
I'm waiting alone now so come on and come out
And pull me near and shine, shine, shine

Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons
Why I should be the one you choose
All those other girls, well they're beautiful
But would they write a song for you?

Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else

I can't help myself if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain, so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
Mmm I can't help myself
myself
Mm
I can't help myself
I can't help myself
Oh, Oh,
Mm
Mm

    General CommentI think a lot of girls can relate to this. It's so cutesy and happy. She's not in love with him, but she wants to kiss him. She sees something in him that's really special. Even just the little things he does like the way he walks and how he says her name.

    The lyrics kind of show how Taylor takes her crush kind of lightly.
    "All those other girls, well they're beautiful,
    but would they write a song for you?"
    She's got a sense of humor.

    The boy Stephen is from the band Love and Theft, who opened for her during one of her tours. I think Stephen knows it's about him.

    Basically, she's just saying she can't help that she has a huge crush on him. She can't help it if he's so perfect and she wants to be with him.

    General CommentHaha I love this song,
    It's very different from most of the other sogns taylor has written.
    Usually it's all about how boys hurt you and stuff like that,

    But Hay, its a nice change.

    General Commenthmmm, i love the feel to this song. i unfortunately cant bring myself to listen to it really because i used to like a boy named steven the same way as in the song. then, he turned into a terrible person and turned against me. it hurts to listen to this.

    Memory*sigh* I love this song so much but I cant listen to it unless I wanna feel sad... This guy steven was my very first love. Me and my best friend loved him but she only liked him a bit. I wasn't allowed to ask him out but was gonna one day cept i was sick that day so im like darn it right? that day SHE asked him out and when i came back and was gonna tell her i wanted to ask him out the next day she told me she already had and he said yes. She kept telling me how amazing he was and all the sweet things he says and does. It hurt me very badly and I didnt get over him until around 16 months later.They broke up because she "lost intrest" fast while I loved him more than I loved my own life.

    but anyways this song rules and is really cute and sweet :)

    General CommentI met this guy that I absolutly liked a lot with no doubt in mind. He knew I liked him and I knew he liked me, but we never did anything about it, until finally I heard this song and played it when i was with him, and I told him that this song reminds me of him and how Stephan should be his name, and he was waiting for the right moment to ask me out but he was scared and didn't wanna ruin things.
