Second Best Friend~ Piano Ballad ~ 2017-09-21
What do you do when you're permanently in the friend zone? Write poetry.
A friend of mine who shall remain nameless gave me a thing he had written kinda free-form, somewhere between a stream of thought and poetry, and asked if I could make a song out of it. I could. Do you want to know how the story ends? Well... they stayed friends.
My lonely friend (lovely friend)
Do you know how much you mean to me, my friend? (How much I love you, my dear friend?)
Well, of course not.
I never told you.
I never showed you.
We have gone all this time
Just being friends.
Oh, I guess I may have dropped a hint or two
But I knew I never had a chance with you
Cause no guy with a brain would ever leave you alone
And honestly... what would you see in me?
So I watched as you chose chose someone else
And said to myself, "Oh, well, I guess. Lucky him."
But I had to hide the tears I cried.
As the days rolled on and the time went by
You were gone, but I never moved on.
And suddenly, I see you're coming back again.
That guy has got to be the stupidest of men.
And I hurt for you when I heard how he broke your heart
But deep wihin me there grows a brand new start.
Can it be, time for me?
I hope you think about it seriously.
Oh, I know I'm rushing things
And I'll give you time
While you heal your broken wings
But when the pain is gone,
I fear you'll be... flying on
To some new guy.
Hope he treats you right.
But if you could love me
Then you'd finally see
All the things I have kept inside
Otherwise, I can be happy for you,
But I'll always wish I was that guy.
Oh, I know you would hurt if you knew how it hurts me
So I'll make sure that you never see
In my heart I'll shout that I love you
I'll always love you
But from my lips you'll only hear
"My best friend."
My best friend.
