The feeling of having butterflies in your stomach is something that anyone loves to have, but what if it’s from having a crush on someone? The feeling of being euphoric, energized, and giddy, whenever you are near them or spending time with them. 

But what if the person you are in love with is in love with someone else? What then? Can your crush develop into something more than just a simple crush? Will it remain the impossible love story that you once had? 

Teardrops On My Guitar: Forgetting An Impossible Love

At times like these the song that chokes me up is Taylor Swift Teardrops on my guitar. Which is about having a crush on someone. But that person doesn’t even know about you or ignores you, or is in love with someone else. 

Verse 1:

“Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see

That I want and I’m needing everything that we should be

I’ll bet she’s beautiful, that girl he talks about

And she’s got everything that I have to live without

Drew talks to me, I laugh ’cause it’s just so funny

But I can’t even see anyone when he’s with me

He says he’s so in love, he’s finally got it right

I wonder if he knows he’s all I think about at night

He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar

The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star

He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do.”

Verse 2:

“Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can’t breathe?

And there he goes, so perfectly

The kind of flawless I wish I could be

She’d better hold him tight, give him all her love

Look in those beautiful eyes and know she’s lucky ’cause

He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar

The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star

He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do.”

Verse 3:

“So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light

I’ll put his picture down and maybe get some sleep tonight.

‘Cause he’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar

The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart

He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do

He’s the time taken up, but there’s never enough

And he’s all that I need to fall into.

Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see.”

It is always possible that you are friends with your crush, then they might not even know that you are in love with them. That is when unknowingly they might hurt your feelings. But it hurts even more when that person knowingly ignores your feelings and simply plays dumb toward them. 

But what if you have a crush on someone who is totally off limits like a married person like a neighbor or someone you know, or it can also be your professor? Then one-sided relationships like that are hard to get over and it can be a long process for you.
