It is a truth universally acknowedged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. -Pride and Prejudice


Hello over there, you in the blue
Yes you! Now stop your life for a moment and look around
Look around, and you might see
Someone who is just meant to be

No, not that shallow girl over there
But the one behind her
The one that is always forgotten, but always remembers you
Her eyes of blue, watching

Now stop your talking and listen
She has much to say-she whispers to you everyday
She tells you all you long to hear
Always unaware

Think for a moment, you stubborn boy
The few times she talks, you enjoy it too
She sees your faults but also the strengths no one else can see
She brings out the best in you
If you would give her a chance

Do you know who I'm talking about?
Yes, she is in your class!
You would be perfect for eachother, if only you would realise
To turn and notice
The girl behind you
