    Can't understand the lyrics

    I don't understand the following lyrics in the song "Teardrops on my guitar":

    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

    What does "Drew" mean in this context? Is it a collocation "to draw a look at somebody"? Then why Google gives only one result for "she drew looks at" and no results for "she drew a look at"? So it must be a man's name. Is there a man's name "Drew"?

    Yes.

    It's often a shortened form of Andrew.

    Yes, I believe it's quite common in Australia. There was certainly a character called Drew in the long-running Australian soap opera "Neighbours".
