Oh, how I fell for you,
Fell for you a long time ago,
How those feelings changed and passed,
How those feelings got ignored everyday,
How those feelings didn't matter to you,
How you never really cared for me,
Never really was in your group of friends,
So I just sat there with secret feelings for you,
While you sat across from me, so oblivious,
Oblivious to me, never really caring,
Oh how I wished, wished I was popular like you,
Then maybe you would notice me.
Oh how I never wanted you to go away,
Never wanted to get hurt, but I have,
All because of you, I hope you are happy.
Oh how I wanted to apologize to you,
Oh how I still wishe and dream of being friends with you,
But now it is oh so late, late since you have
Announced that you were moving to a different school,
Oh how I was hurt,
Oh if you only knew how I felt,
If you only knew what I wanted to say,
And I even said that day out loud,
"No I don't want you to leave."
I spoke now, and spoke out when the chance was right,
I couldn't get out how I really felt about you,
Oh how I just walked by you to smell your sweet smell,
And to feel wanted, I have always liked the fact that you were there,
Oh how I hated it when you were gone,
But you never knew.
Never really cared about my feelings, and you even hurt me,
But I have ways of staying in contact with you,
In my heart you are a best close friend to me,
No matter what you say,
And you can hate me if you want,
But it won't change anything.
Only one person knew of the crush I had on you,
And he wouldn't tell a soul,
Oh how I was foolish, I should have just came up to talk to you,
Instead of being shy and scared,
I just didn't want to get hurt, but I did anyway,
When you blocked me,
Blocked me out of your life,
Like I never exsisted, I cried,
I must admit it hurt me a lot,
But I have ways of seeing things, and seeing just how you are doing.
You can hate me or whatever,
But it won't change a thing,
And never change how I feel,
Just know that my heart shattered like glass.
