Just So You Know

Just so you know
it was me who fixed the writing on your car.
I stood outside when it was cold
and did something that I'd been told
not to do (in a round-about way).
When they said, "go straight home"
I stopped to fix a mistake.
And that was when you didn't love me.

Just so you know
I talked to her about you to see if maybe
I should try to encourage your relationship--
but you wouldn't like what I heard.
She's not interested in you in that way.
So there was never a hope of using me.
Girls win out every time.
So just keep pining after her.
See what good it does.

Just so you know
I'm this close to hating you.

I really like this. It's sad and very appropriate to the life of a girl whose friend has no idea that she loves him.

Thanks, and it is appropriate for that, but he does know. Which is why it hurt even more when he tried to use me. I'm glad you enjoyed. :)
