"Our Song" as written by and Taylor Swift....
I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car
He's got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel
The other on my heart
I look around, turn the radio down
He says, "Baby, is something wrong?"
I say, "Nothin', I was just thinkin' how we don't have a song"
And he said,

Our song is a slamming screen door
Sneakin' out late, tapping on your window
When we're on the phone, and you talk real slow
'Cause it's late and your mama don't know
Our song is the way you laugh, on the first date
Man, I didn't kiss her, and I should have
And when I got home, before I said amen
Asking God if he could play it again

I was walking up the front porch steps after everything that day
Had gone all wrong and been trampled on
And lost and thrown away
Got to the hallway, well on my way to my lovin' bed
I almost didn't notice all the roses
And the note that said,

Our song is a slamming screen door
Sneakin' out late, tapping on your window
When we're on the phone, and you talk real slow
'Cause it's late and your mama don't know
Our song is the way you laugh, on the first date
Man, I didn't kiss her, and I should have
And when I got home, before I said amen
Asking God if he could play it again

I've heard every album, listened to the radio
Waited for something to come along
That was as good as our song

'Cause our song is a slamming screen door
Sneaking out late, tapping on his window
When we're on the phone, and he talks real slow
'Cause it's late, and his mama don't know
Our song is the way he laughs, on the first date
Man, I didn't kiss him, and I should have
And when I got home, before I said amen
Asking God if he could play it again
Play it again, oh yeah, oh, oh, yeah

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone
In the front seat of his car
I grabbed a pen and an old napkin
And I wrote down our song

    General CommentI love this song!!!! What caught my attention was the fact that my b/f has snuck over to my house, woken me up (or tried to at least) at my window, so we talk for a little bit (I know, it's not on a phone, but it makes do), then I send him home cuz it's late and there's school in the morning. But it really nailed to spot for me, and I absolutely LOVE this song!!!! Reminds me of that one special guy....

    General CommentI love all of Taylor Swift's music but this song and "Teardrops on My Guitar" are my favorites. It's so sweet and innocent and it gives off a cheerful vibe. The meaning is obvious; the girl is bothered that she doesn't have a song with her boyfriend. He tells her that it doesn't matter because they share so many other things like late night phone calls, memories, and basically just the cliched couple happiness. It's a cute song and I can relate to the part that says:

    When we're on the phone and you talk real slow,
    'cause it's late and your mama don't know

    I love being on the phone late at night when I'm not supposed to be. So this part of the song reminds me of the conversations that I have late at night. This is a very cute song and I can't wait to hear more from Taylor Swift. =)
