I Wrote You A Song

V1:
I haven't known you for long
I think I want to though
So I wrote you a song
That you'll never hear

When I'm with you I'm smiling
But I look better when I'm not
Yeah I look better when I'm not
You make me laugh
And I'm wishing I would stop
I sound better when I stop

Chorus:
So here's a simple song I wrote for you
When I had nothing else to do
A lonely afternoon
Filled with memories of you
And I can't stop

V2:
You've got all these crazy things to say
Makes me sad to be too late
And I won't be seeing you today
Maybe you'll think of me

I'd love to hear your songs
And I'd love to show you mine
Oh, I think you'd like mine
But when you talk to her
I feel so left behind
I feel so left behind

Chorus:
So here's a simple song I wrote for you
When I had nothing else to do
A lonely afternoon
Filled with memories of you
And I can't stop

I want to impress you
But I think you like my friend
Why do they always like my friends?
I think you'd like me
But maybe you pretend
I hope you don't pretend

So here's a simple song I wrote for you
When I had nothing else to do
A lonely afternoon
Filled with memories of you
And I can't stop

This is such a sweet song :) Its simplicity captures that bright hope of meeting someone new, and wondering what could be around the corner for the two of you. I hope it goes further, cos he is obviously a source of inspiration for you :) Keep writing, clarity_77 :)
