I Wanted to Tell You, I Really Did

You looked at me,

Looked into my eyes

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

My heart was full,

Ready to burst

Break out in waves, flying colors

I f you only could have seen

The night would have been filled

With fireworks

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

All the time

Spent together

The countless hours

The endless years

Everything we did, inside jokes

Ice cream and movies

Friendship

We had it all

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

I could see

In yours eyes

We didn't have much time

No more us

'The best friendship duo in town'

We were one for the books

But you're leaving soon,

And so am I

Different universities

Different coasts

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

I was afraid,

To lose it all

One rejection, pain

Heartache

It would have been too much to take

I couldn't handle any more

And then I thought,

"What if I told you? And ruined us?"

'The best friendship duo in town'

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

Then their were the girls

They hung on you

You went out with them

They were so pretty,

So popular

And I knew I couldn't compare

They were everything I was not

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

The pain

The rage

The jealousy

The agonizing

I wished they would walk off the face of the Earth,

Disappear,

That you would finally see,

What was standing in front of you,

Had you opened your eyes

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

You were my best friend

My life

My love

My everything

You were there for me,

Through it all:

The crying fits, ice cream splurges

Organized a burial when my cat died

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

Now you're gone,

I didn't get a chance to say

What was in my heart everyday

I wanted to tell you,

I really did

Guess what,

I Love You
