I'm Only Me When I'm With You Lyrics

Play "I'm Only Me When I'm With You"
on Amazon Music

Friday night beneath the stars
in a field behind your yard
you and I are painting pictures in the sky
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...

    Well a friend recommend that I listen to this song cause there is a girl that I like, and she acts like herself when I'm around. I think it is saying that I only act like myself when I'm with you.

    The song is about Taylor and her best friend Abigail, and how they know each other so well and can only be themselves when they are with each other. The video has Abigail in there a lot. It can also be about her family, but I doubt they'd be 'in the field behind your yard' if she is talking about close family. However, the song can also be interpreted about a boy, because of the line saying 'just a small town boy and girl', unless it is about a close friend who is a boy. It could easily be explaining how she is only herself when she is with the boy. It all depends on how you want to interpret it. Maybe the best idea is to ask Taylor Swift about who she wrote the song about!

    I think this song is about Taylor and Abigail being themselves and just having fun with friends.

    It’s obvious that this song is written for the person Taylor Swift is closest to and is most comfortable around, possibly a boyfriend, maybe even a best friend. The song is about how she loves the comfort they share and how she enjoys being herself around that person and not having to pretend she’s anything else other than what she truly is. You can tell she loves this person dearly especially when she says she don’t want to do anything with out the person. You can also tell that they know everything about each other and they trust each other very much.

    it's not just about her friends. its about her family too. Basically it's just the people who she feels closest too, and how she loves them and how she can only true be herself around them

    This song is great. It's about Taylor and Abigail and their other best friends that surround them. Taylor and Abigail even made this video on imovie together!

    I think it's about Taylor and her best guy friend, who've basically been through everything together, and she's finally starting to fall for him. She's saying that he knows everything about her, and that makes her comfortable. She's saying she's only her when she's with him.

    This song is one of my favorites. It's about Taylor talking about her best friend and how they know everything about her. And how even though they "drive her crazy half the time" she still knows that they're the one who she can always be herself around.
