From A Girl
I don’t know why I fell for you
I did silly little things
Hoping just to catch your attention.
I felt happy to see you,
Giggling even at your lamest jokes.
And when you suddenly weren’t around,
I felt like nothing was right.
I know you’d never be mine
Even after those girls broke your heart
And tossed away your pride.
If there were a next life,
Perhaps you would fall for me.
Doing all silly little things just to make me smile.
Hoping that I'd pay you attention
Or spend with you a little more time.
Maybe then you could understand
How lonesome it could be to like someone.
