Look behind you.
Do you see that girl?
The girl you never gave the light of day to?
Look at her beautiful curls,
Her lovely eyes
That dart down when you look at her.
Notice how hard she tries!
She's smart and shy;
Read all the books in the library.
Her eyes are puffy from her everyday cry.
Did you notice that beautiful voice?
That she can play the piano well?
She carefully thinks through every choice,
And she's fallen victim to your love spell.
You frankly don't deserve that girl.
It took you this long to look,
This long to see,
This long to notice.
