what do I have to do

What do I have to do to get you to notice me?
Change my eyes or the way I walk.
My clothes, my hair color,the way I talk.
We've known each other for some time now 
yet I'm invisible to you. 
My feelings run deep and oh so wow
I wish you only knew.
It is your face I see every time I close my eyes
To me you just seem so very different from the other guys.
To you I'm just another friend
Nothing more, nothing less
I have to settle for friendship in the end
Because I don't want to make a mess.
Instead I'll keep my secret to myself 
And take my pride back off the shelf.
Until one day you finally see 
That you and I were meant to be.
I'll wait for now but not too long
Because sooner or later one of these days I'll be gone.
Someone else will come take your place.
It will be them instead of you to make my heart race.
For now I will hide my feelings from you.
but When Will You Notice Me?
