he's got a smile like the sun

and the eyes of a siren,

drawing me in with an inaudible song

.

he seems to never see me

but when his eyes meet mine,

a spark we didn't know was there ignites

.

his smile means the world to me,

its sunshine fanning the flame

that seems to burn so bright between us

.

i don't know what i am to him

if nothing more than just a friend

but i can wait forever if i must

.

someday i'm gonna ask him

for something i'm not allowed -

i'll ask him to go dancing with me

.

and if he says no (like he should)

i'll saunter off, though not surprised

because that's what he's told me before

.

but if hopes and wishes pay off

he'll agree to go with me

and it will be the best night of my life.

a/n: sadie hawkins dance next month. i've somehow been convinced to ask out the object of my affections... who has turned me down before. why am i so confident in my ability to not die of embarrassment? because for some reason, i get the feeling that maybe this time, it'll be different.
