I have never felt this way before
Every time I see, my knees give out
My friend tries to steer us clear enough so that I don't pass out
but close enough so I can see you and you can see me
I never thought I'd fall for you
because you never seemed to be my type
and I yours.
One friend says I'd be the best girlfriend you'd ever have
Another says we'd make a cute couple
Another says just to get on with it and tell you already
I've been so open-hearted
But how do I follow my heart when my parents say
I can't have a boyfriend?
They'd never understand the way I feel for you
They'd say I was too young and that you'd break my heart
And they'd come after you, to hurt you, which would hurt me
How can I be open hearted
if I can't even open my heart to you?
