Reach for the stars, kid....Heaven's not too far kid....~Shaun Diviney of Short Stack

Are you the name he doesn’t say in the shoutout?
have you ever been the one that he forgets about?
have you been the one he sees right through,
no matter what you say or what you do?
does it seem like no matter what you wear
he looks at you like you’re not even there?
like, you listen and cling to his every word
but when you talk you feel like you’re completely unheard?

Well let me tell you that you’re not alone
you’re not the only one waiting by the phone
So girls, here’s my shoutout, if you’re head over heels
for a guy who can change the way you think or feel
in a moment, in a second, with just one phrase,
who can run through your mind for days upon days
who can make your heart beat, faster and slow
the one who rocks your world and doesn’t even know.
or the boy who occupies your every thought,
but you’re just the girl that boy forgot.
But you know that your girls will always have your back.
because we make up for what those guys lack. (: ?

The author's comments:
I was feeling quite left-out when a guy i'm really close to left me out of his "shout-out" section. This is my frustration in rhyme and lyric.
