Now You Know, It's You I Like - Poem by jess schwarcz

Don’t pretend you’re not home,
Cause you told me last night,
All day you’d be there alone.
For a fact, you’re not at work,
Cause you’re sitting around,
Finishin’ a “shit-load” of homework.

So just give me a minute,
To tell you what I have to say.
I need to tell you now,
Cause this nerve won’t come another day.

About you, I wanted to know,
So I went ahead and asked aroun’
Audrey held, in less than a month it’ll end,
Between you and your new girlfriend.
Dawnna said to turn up the heat,
But every time I look at you
My heart skips a beat.
Steve shrugged; he didn’t know you that well,
And for me, not telling you this has been living hell.

So just give me a minute,
To tell you what I have to say.
I need to tell you now,
Cause this nerve won’t come another day.

Maybe this is a mistake,
But tomorrow may be too late.
I’ve waited for too long,
Cause in seven months you’ll be gone.
Just give me one minute,
One minute to tell you:

John Lanham, I like you.
For months and years it’s been true,
Ever since the first time I saw you.
It’s you I wanna date,
It could be a mistake by fate,
But I’ve seen the way you look at me,
And I’m sick of being friendly,
And I’m sick of being lonely.

I don’t know what you’re goin’ to say.
Maybe today isn’t my lucky day,
But there it is, do what you like,
Cause now you know, it’s you I like.
