Never will she look my way,
To her I'm just a boy.
Never any more than that.
Though she'd never understand,
I feel so empty sometimes,
Yet full of love I'll never give,
Because those I fall for never see me,
I'm a young man who loves romance,
I read such novels with glee,
I love wholeheartedly,
But in my own company.
I love from afar,
Because I'm too much of a coward to say,
Insecurity is a pain, but I'm happy this way.
It may be a bit of a lie,
But at least you can't get hurt,
And then when it's onesided,
You won't cry should the feelings end,
I'm here and watching quietly,
I love you from where I stand,
I wish I'd let you love me back,
So I could be happy more,
But I'll never let you close,
Because you drown in my oceans before you'd wash ashore,
But yet I stand here loving,
You're a girl that I can't have,
But part of me is still hoping,
That you'll love me,
And I won't be alone.
