Can't You See

Every time I see that envelope
light up on my cell phone screen
my heart leaps
and then it falls
I think, Not again.
Maybe next time,
but tell it to me straight
am I on your mind
like you’re on mine?

Chorus:

Can’t you see me keep on smiling?
Though you keep on
letting me down.
Can’t you see
I only see you
while you seem to see
everyone but me?
Can’t you see
what’s right
in front of your eyes?
Can’t you see me?

You could make my day
a perfect one
but my highs
turn into lows.
Are you telling me something?
Are you sending me signs?
Or am I all wrong
again?
Even if I am…

Repeat Chorus

I don’t know how much longer
I can take this.
So tell me, who am I to you?
Tell me, am I just some girl
who’s in way over her head?

Can’t you see me keep on smiling?
Though you keep on
letting me down.
Can’t you see
that I
don’t know how you feel
so I keep on wondering?
Can’t you see
what’s right
in front of your eyes?
Can’t you see me?

I don’t know…

Can’t you see me?

I don’t know
if you see me.

This was written due to some frustration about a crush. I just wrote down what I was feeling and was like, "Hey, I really like this!" :)
