It was foolish, it’s true,

To think this could ever be more than me falling for you

I knew it, I did

And so I pushed it down, tried to keep it hid.

I was short, I was cruel, I was flip, I was rude

I threw at you every possible ill mood

Because I knew we were friends, you’d

never accept me as someone who might like to be wooed.

I’m infatuated, in lust, in love for what’s it’s worth

But it doesn’t make a difference. There are no shared feelings in you I can unearth.

I hope you find someone, honestly I do.

But please don’t think I’ll ever be friends with them too
