You sometimes see her

The quiet shy girl in the corner

Who sometimes looks your way


You don’t really notice

How much she adores you

How her mind never leaves you


In fact, you don’t really notice her

She’s nice and pretty, you suppose

But she never speaks up


Not like you do

They say opposites attract,

But you figure that isn’t true


Besides, you like assertive girls

Who say what they believe

And smile and wink at you


Or…you thought you did

Until you saw her with him

Sharing a secret, silent joke

That made your heart heavy

Although you didn’t know why

You didn’t like her, did you?


Maybe you did,

But maybe you didn’t

Maybe you loved her


It brought you comfort to see her

Every day in homeroom

Occasionally gazing at you


It’s too late now

They’re happy together

You can’t break that up


So for her, you stay away

You pretend to be into some other girl

But in your heart, you know


You could have had her

But you couldn’t speak up

When it mattered the most


You see, my friend,

Neither of you won

But only you lost
