I can see you sitting there
Youâ€™ve just walked in
Youâ€™ve chosen to sit in front of me
Youâ€™re sitting next to another girl
But youâ€™re still watching me from the corner of your eye
Sheâ€™s lucky you next to her
It scares me to think of the possibilities
The possibility of you two falling for each other
Youâ€™re a perfect match
Unlike you & I…itâ€™ll never happen
Sheâ€™s twice as lovely
Iâ€™m trying to do some revision
But I seem to be focusing on you.
Youâ€™re still watching me & Iâ€™m still watching you
We both know itâ€™s pointless
Sheâ€™s started to talk to you
You respond smiling the same smile I could die for
She smiles back, her face brightens
My face darkens with pain
I feel a sudden headache start
Your eyes are fixed on each other
Then you laugh & turn away
She knows your feeling for her…& so do I
I know she wants your attention
I know youâ€™re giving it to her
Sheâ€™s everything Iâ€™m not, why wouldnâ€™t you go for her?
The thought kills me
I slowly place my head down & wrap my arms
Around it until I see total darkness
I hear your chair turn
You must have looked at me before turning back
I look up again & just miss you
Your silent, I canâ€™t work out why
What hides behind your smile?
A big heart or a big head?
Just wish I knew what youâ€™re really like
I thought you were different
So why do you seem the same…
I know I love you but the more I get to know you
The more I wish I hadnâ€™t fallen for you
I spent the rest of the lesson with my head down
You spent the rest of the lesson in silence
What were you thinking?
Youâ€™ve become serious â€“ it makes me feel guilty
The lesson ends & the bell rings
I lift my head â€“ you quickly leave
I slowly walk out after you….
What will the next lesson be like…?
For it is soon, I fear whatâ€™ll happen…
I donâ€™t need the extra stress,
Yet I have brought it upon myself…
I know what I feel, just afraid to say it…
Since you canâ€™t hear me…
Iâ€™ll say it silently…
I think I love you…
