I never knew you, but still I want to.
Would you let me… If i weren’t gonna leave?
Well i know that i’m not getting my way;
There's something deep inside of me,
That's begging you to plead with me even if we both know i can't stay.

While i'd hoped i’d have the time to make you fall in love,
i don’t even think i love you much myself.
Still i'll cry and moan and make my friends hate my romantic heart,
Cus i’m too jealous to let you love someone else.

I never knew you, and now i dunno what to do.
To make you want me, yeah.
It's gonna take a while to see...

That while i’d hoped i’d have the time to make you fall in love,
i don’t even think i love you much myself.
Still i’ll fool myself into believing that with you,
Infatuation i have never, ever felt.

When i see you smile i feel like i could make a whole new life;
One thats waiting for me when i fall behind...
Then we talk and i see clearer than the light of day:
I’m the last thing that is ever on your mind.

Yeah girl.

Begging you reciprocate, but seems its simply far too late,
So all i do is doubt how you feel.
Because deep down right inside my soul, I fear you already know
And i am just not what you want at all.

The simple truth which guides my life,
Says normally avoid all strife... But avoiding that would mean avoiding you.

You laugh and smile and break my heart
And know that i can never start, to catch up to you and all you are because
You are gone.
