Except for Me

As I walk by she laughs, falls down
Runs her fingers through her hair
I watch as you help her get up
I try to hide my face and my frown
Cause I can see it in your eyes

That's the kind of girl you like to see
Tell her you love her and maybe
It'll all be perfect like a fairy tale
Except for me...

I've always loved you from a distance
I thought you sort of liked me too
You're so smart and she's so dumb
What's going on with you?
I can see it in your eyes

But Why is that the kind of girl you like to see
Tell her you love her and maybe
It'll all be perfect like a fairy tale
Except for me...

Ditsy, Giggly, Not too bright
Look again, but in the light
We both know this isn't right...
But I won't fight...

Cause I can tell: That's the kind of girl you like to see
Tell her you love her and maybe
It'll all be perfect like a fairy tale
Except for me...

That's the kind of girl you like to see
Tell her you love her and maybe
It'll all be perfect like a fairy tale
Except for me...Everyone but me...yeah..mine...

As I walk by she laughs, falls down
Runs her fingers through her hair......

Thanks! THis is one of those songs that is like 30% true but really exaggerated, and yet remains 100% from the heart. I just posted another song that is pending review, "Someday." I'll read some of your stuff too!

I liked it, but I think in the third stanza, fourth line... It doesn't really fit right there. Keep writing! -Angel
