i’m only me when i’m with you lyrics – taylor swift

friday night beneath the stars,
in a field behind your yard,
you and i are paintin’ pictures in the sky.
and sometimes we don’t say a thing;
just listen to the crickets sing.
everything i need is right here by my side.
and i know everything about you
i don’t wanna live without you.

[chorus:]
i’m only up when you’re not down.
don’t wanna fly if you’re still on the ground.
it’s like no matter what i do.
well you drive me crazy half the time;
the other half i’m only trying to let you know that what i feel is true.
and i’m only me when i’m with you.

just a small town boy and girl
livin’ in a crazy world.
tryin’ to figure out what is and isn’t true.
and i don’t try to hide my tears.
the secrets or my deepest fears.
through it all n*body gets me like you do.
and you know everything about me.
you say that you can’t live without me.

[chorus]

when i’m with anybody else it’s so hard to be myself.
only you can tell.

[chorus:]
that i’m only up when you’re not down.
don’t wanna fly if you’re still on the ground.
it’s like no matter what i do.
well you drive me crazy half the time;
the other half i’m only trying to let you know that what i feel is true.
and i’m only me
who i wanna be
well, i’m only me when i’m with you
with you
uh huh
yeah
