She follows his every wish

Says they're best friends

And one day he'll see

Except she doesn't stop to notice

That he's with

A different girl every night

Never her

It's never her

She's crying in the corner

When he tries to walk over

He doesn't know why she cries

Or why she never lets him help

But he knows they're best friends

And hopes one day she'll see

She waves him away

Like it's nothing at all

When in reality its everything

It's always him

In the back of her mind

It's always him

The mix-ups of love

The failures of one

Or the other

Never knowing

When to go for it

Or when to end it

Never knowing

When to let it go

Or when to hold on

Hold on

The girl next door

To the boy with the charming smile

Never stopped staring

And he never stopped walking past her oblivious

She always wondered

If he knew her name

Or if he even knew she existed

The girl next door

The one he tries to ignore

Acting like she's not there every time he walks past

But she's in the back of his mind every day

He always wondered

If she knew his name

Or if she even knew he existed

They never said hi

And they never said goodbye

When one moved away

And then the other

But they always wondered

What if?

The mix-ups of love

The failures of one

Or the other

Never knowing

When to go for it

Or when to end it

Never knowing

When to let it go

Or when to hold on

The mix-ups of love

The failures of one

Or the other

Because they never knew

They never knew

The mix-ups of love

The failures of one

Or the other

Never knowing

When to go for it

Or when to end it

Never knowing

When to let it go

Or when to hold on

Because they never knew

They never knew
