I wrote this in about fifteen minutes in a brief spate of reminiscence regarding something that happened between me and a real good friend almost a year ago. I haven't edited, I haven't beta-read it or anything, so I guess it's still in the "messy" state. I don't know if it's supposed to be lyrics or a poem; just read it as it is and take it as you will.

-----------------

Sometimes I feel like my grin is so big my face will split wide open;
But it could split right in half and I wouldn't be grinning enough.

And then you freak out; backtrack…
Or are you backtracking because I'm kind of freaking out myself
And you can tell that I'm downplaying the whole thing,
Or trying to anyway.
Is it working?

But I went out with your best friend… well I kind of did anyway.
Why would you want to break that rule with me?
Am I really the first and last person you'd ask out…?
We do have a strange thing going on here.

Really why would you say something if you didn't mean it
I suppose we all say a lot of things that we don't mean…
This is hardly a joking matter though
You're kind of messing with my brain here.

Yes I am quite a catch;
Thank you.

I don't know if I'm sure of what you think you know,
Or if you're really thinking anything at all.
But if you were (thinking of what I think you could be thinking, that is),
Well I daresay you're probably wrong.

And then you freak out; backtrack…
Or are you backtracking because I'm kind of freaking out myself
And you can tell that I'm downplaying the whole thing,
Or trying to anyway.
Is it working?

Maybe I could tell it to you straight,
In a roundabout kinda way.
