I know not of this feeling, that dwells inside my breast
This bittersweet sensation that will not let me rest.
It started with a smile you threw one day when you passed by
And lingers long beyond that time, and I'm not sure why
I know a lot of girls but never have I felt like this
Never have I fantasized about a single kiss
Of course I know it cannot be, we live two different lives
Yours where wishes always grow, while mine fight to survive
The paths we walk are not the same, destined not to meet
The dreams I carry in my heart will never be complete
I'm sure that I'll get over you, forget what could have been
And wonder what it would be like, to be sixteen again
