The Only Exception

In the words of Hayley:
"You are the only exception"
But let me explain it in my own way.
I see you in the halls, with her.
And I can't help but feel like that picture is completely wrong.
I thought I had just given up on pointless crushing
But you are the one that pushed me back into this madness
I had convinced myself that I didn't have feelings for you anymore
And it took me til now to realize that I was wrong.
Very, very wrong.
Your brown eyes should be staring into my own blue ones.
Sitting in that stairwell was the best day of my life.
I thought I'd never find someone that I could sit in silence with, and be happy with it.
These past few days have sent my head spinning.
You now know that what almost happened was my 11:11 11-11-11 wish.
And you know that I regret leaning away.
What you don't know is that I walked away, crying that night.
I stood there, in the rain, wishing you would come running up and saying you shouldn't have let me leave.
Bugging you with my knuckle cracking while you roll up your sleeves is what puts the smile on my face.
"Maybe I know, somewhere deep in my soul, that love never lasts."However true, I feel like I would wait forever and a day for you.
Just sitting next to you makes me feel like I'm on top of the world.
And I know that I've sounded like this before.
I always let things go too far.
But with you, I just feel like maybe there's a chance at happiness for me.
"And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love, if it does not exist. But darling, you are the only exception."
You have no idea how much I want to go back in time and lean forward.
Yes, it would be wrong and immoral, but it might make you sway just enough to fall for me as well.
And even if it didn't, at least I'd know what it felt like.
"Oh, and I'm on my way to believin'"And I am.
I am starting to think that you are the one.
The one I can just sit with.
The one I can have musical fights with.
The one I would dance in the rain with.
The one.
Maybe you don't feel the same.
But maybe you do.
Maybe you'll never read this.
But maybe you will.
Maybe nothing will ever happen.
But maybe something might.
"And up untill now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with lonlieness."And I had.
Then you come along.
With your plaid scarf and spikey hair and make me think otherwise.
To put a long story short, you are the only exception.
