"Don't think or judge. Just listen."

What if I live in a world?
A world where it doesn't get better?

But I have you.

If I had to pick a best friend,
I'd say it was you.
Because you always seem to be the first person to come to mind.

I know I mess up.
I messed up with you.

But there you are...

I don't remember much about that night.

But I remember you were there.

I remember being terrified.
And very off balance.

But if you left, I might have jumped off the deep end.

I remember laying my hands on your shoulders,
Trying to pull myself together and saying,
"Please don't go. I need you."

And that is how I feel everyday of my life.

It is simply ineffable.

Maybe we would have had a chance at a relationship,
But that's not what I want from you.
I don't wanna mess this up.

I want a friend.
And I found it in you.

I've heard it from a lot of girls.
All the amazing qualities that you posses.
And maybe you don't know it, but I see it too.

How could you ever feel like you didn't want to be you?

Your different.

No one will ever be the same.

I sat and thought,
Because lately I have a lot of time to do so.

I don't want to replace you,
Because maybe, just maybe...
You'd be replacing me too.

When you threatened to leave,
I felt the same way I felt that night.

Who would...
Just listen?

Who would I tell all my crazy stories to?
Who would I give all my secrets away to?

But then when you left I realized..
It wasn't fair to put it all on you.

You know it all.

I'm not sure what I first saw in you.

But now I realize,
Your never going to be just one of those old faces passing me down the hall.

Some days,The best part of my day was talking to you.

And I'll wait..
I'll wait for the day that maybe you'll need me too.
