Look at you
Look at me
Look at who
We could be

I wanna know
Who you are
What you want
From the start

And everytime I look at you
I can hardly say a thing
my head starts to spin
And it hits me then
I love you

And everytime you look at me
I could go crazy but I don't
say it but I won't
Cause I'd rather be alone
Than lose you

And all I really wanna do is be next to you
But I'm too tired to fight
And I could tell you now
But baby, nevermind

All the time
Everyday
There's nothing I can do baby
To make it go away

So look at you
And look at me
Now think of who
We could be

And everytime I look at you
I can hardly say a thing
my head starts to spin
And it hits me then
I love you

And everytime you look at me I could go crazy
but I don't say it but I won't
Cause I'd rather be alone
Than lose you

And all I really wanna do is be next to you
But I'm too tired to fight
And I could tell you now
But baby, nevermind

All I really wanna say is I need you babe
But how could you understand
What happens if you turn away
And everything turns blue and grey
And I just wish I told you, nevermind

And I could tell you now
But baby nevermind

Yeah
Oh yeah

I could tell you now but nevermind

Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

And I could tell you now but nevermind

    General CommentA song about being hopelessly in love, but not wanting to tell.
    Taylor's old songs are so underrated!

    Song MeaningLook at you
    Look at me
    Look at who
    We could be

    * She thinking in her mind about how this boy could be the one*

    I wanna know
    Who you are
    What you want
    From the start

    * She wants to know everything about him*

    And everytime I look at you
    I can hardly say a thing
    my head starts to spin
    And it hits me then
    I love you

    * Every time she looks at him everything seems to fall into place*

    And everytime you look at me
    I could go crazy but I don't
    say it but I won't
    Cause I'd rather be alone
    Than lose you

    * She wants to say that she is in love with him, but doesn't want to get hurt*

    And all I really wanna do is be next to you
    But I'm too tired to fight
    And I could tell you now
    But baby, nevermind

    * In this part by the way she says "I'm too tired to fight" to me it says her head is saying tell him, but her heart is too scared to know the answer. She eventually doesn't say anything*

    All the time
    Everyday
    There's nothing I can do baby
    To make it go away

    * Her love is so strong she can't let it go*

    So look at you
    And look at me
    Now think of who
    We could be

    * She thinks they could be something special*

    All I really wanna say is I need you babe
    But how could you understand
    What happens if you turn away
    And everything turns blue and grey
    And I just wish I told you, nevermind

    * She is thinking about what would happen if she tells him she is in love with him and he rejects her*

    And I could tell you now
    But baby nevermind

    Yeah
    Oh yeah

    I could tell you now but nevermind

    Yeah
    Oh yeah yeah

    And I could tell you now but nevermind

    * This song is so great and it so relatable to a lot of people*

    My InterpretationThis song is about a girl who's in love with a boy and she wants to tell him but she's afraid to. Maybe he just got in a relationship so she's saying "never mind", because she sees no use in continuing what she was going to say. I imagine she's at school and about to admit her feelings to a boy when a girl comes up and they start hanging all over each other, and when she leaves he asks her what she was going to say and she just says never mind. She would rather not be with him as boyfriend/girlfriend than lost him as a friend. Or maybe she DID tell him, and now she's really regretting it because he doesn't feel the same about her and she wishes she wouldn't have told him so she could at least pretend that he had the same feelings for her.
