Understand Me

I haven't been trying to "get with you" and I haven't for a long time
I gave up my pure fantasy, of making you mine
I still think your gorgeous, perhaps the most beautiful in the school
So i realized me trying to get with you? The thoughts of a fool

I know your feelings aren't there for me, and i accept that
You're out of my league, i guess that's a fact
But i can still think you're amazing, and be only your friend
Where i can say hi, and you say hey back again

I admit that for this, my reasons are pure selfish
I don't want to be on a "bad note" with the most beautiful girl I've ever seen
To look back and realize that my biggest crush, hated me and my theme
This would leave me feeling pathetic, dumb and useless

I know that i messed up, too many people knew how i felt
It might of embarrassed you, since at the time you knew nothing else
I promise you I'm not a bad guy, just a failure at love
I ask that you forgive what this failure has done or does

I'm not trying to make you mine, even if that once was my goal
I just want to chill sometime, laughing at dumb jokes
There's no hidden goal, and there's no hidden objective
My wish is so simple, and i hope somehow you see this

I know that after this year, i'll never see you again
It's almost over, i never once was a friend
I'll probably look back, and view this as a sad time in my life
Where i was dumb and infatuated, couldn't do anything right

If i could i would beg you, to give me these last few weeks
Where i can impress until you forgive me, for falling in love with a girl so sweet
You were everything i ever wanted, and to be honest you still are
But right now all i hope for, is for us to end on a "good card"
