I'll never forget the first day I met you

You were surrounded by a crowd

And there I was standing on the outside looking in

Our eyes met through the sea of people and you flashed that cocky smile of yours

It was then that I though you were so annoying and full of yourself

But there was something there...something I fell in love with

I'd run into you in that dorky sweater vest of yours

And I thought you were so annoying

And yet, I couldn't help but fall in love with you

I sat back and watched you fall for one of my best friends

Who fell for you in return

And I was happy for you both - or tried to be

We all got older, feelings changed, and you two came to an end

You were upset and I felt your pain

I often wanted to tell you how I felt but knew you didn't see me like that

So I sat back and waited

Time marched on, and you began to like other girls

And a guy here and there caught my eye - but you were always in the back of my mind

But you didn't see me like that

So I sat back and waited

For almost six years I cried night after night over you

I've seen a side of you that many haven't

And now I see what my reward is

You will always have a special place in my heart

I want to be so much more than just your friend

But you don't see me like that

I'm like a truck stuck in mud who needs to be put in reverse

So all that's left to say is I want you to find happiness and to know that

I'll never forget the first day I met you
