Verse 1:
I just wanna cry,
I just wanna hold you tightly never letting you go,
But if there's some extraordinary measure, then I'll never lose control
Chorus:
Cuz all I want is for you to be happy and I'll never get in the way
So just say baby, “I'll be okay…”

Verse 2:
It started as a freshman, on the very first day
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw you walking my way. (Hmm, hmm)
I didn't know what to do, what if you
said “hey”?
But you kept on walking
And it continued that way.

Chorus
Bridge:
You made me smile, you made me blush
You put my head into a rush
You looked at me and I couldn't breathe, what kind of spell did you put on me?
I don't know, but what I do … is that I'm crazy … crazy for you

Chorus:
But all I want is for you to be happy, and I'll, I'll never get in the way
But all I want is for you to be happy, and I'll never get in the way
So just say baby, ‘I'll be okay''
So just say baby, “I'll be okay''
Baby I know you'll be okay

That's good! It's totally relatable and I personally don't think the lyrics are cliche, but actually flow nicely throughout the song.

I have to say i got really into it, I really felt like i was there seeing him the guy i liked and wanted him to notice me so bad. I been there before a couple of times and this is one of the first one i read where i can relate to the situation. Keep on writing ok!

These lyrics are okay, but at the same time a bit corny. Try not to use cliches, it will help your song sound more original.

This is great. It brings back memories of my freshman year when I fell hard for a senior who turned out to like me back. Could you maybe check out one of my songs, like "The You I Thought I Knew" or "Fading Memory"? And I hope you win the poetry contest; you deserve it! :)
