Obsessed

Her hair chestnut brown, and her skin porcelin pale
She's sitting on a park bench, beginning to inhale (1:52 p.m.)

She's moving her leg now, I can see she's wearing sandals
She re-applies her lipstick to avoid fashion scandals (1:56 p.m.)

Her outfit from channel, I have one in my closet
I couldn't really afford it, so I had to make a deposit

She opens up her purse, and pulls out her phone
She calls up Linda (her best friend), in a sweet, sincere tone (2:04 p.m.)

They gossip back and forth for about twenty-one minutes
They make plans for coffee, the plans seem indefinate (2:25 p.m.)

She stands up slowly and flicks her hair to the side
If she's going for coffee, where next can I hide?

I'm watching her from everywhere
I just can't let her see
I want to be just like her
She's all I want to be

From thirty paces behind, I watch her with amazement
Without even knowing, she's my daily entertainment

Starbucks coffee for an hour is where she ended up going
18.95 is the amount that she ended up blowing (3:25 p.m.)

She goes home, settles in, and gets a glass of wine
She lives at the end, in house number nine (3:33 p.m.)

Her house is yellow, with a small hint of brown
What a nice place to live, what a lovely little town (Since: 1994)

Her room is green with tonnes of posters all over
Her comforter is white with a great big shamrock clover

Her mom shouts "Dinner's at 5! Just a reminder!"
She signs online, and on a social network I find her (3:41 p.m.)

I'm watching her from everywhere
I just can't let her see
I want to be just like her
She's all I want to be

"A good afternoon with Kelly!" is what her status shows
"Out with the girls" is mine, so she never ever knows (3: 44 p.m.)

My favourite colour is pink, cause' that's her favourite too
Without her in my life, I'm not sure what I would do

She writes in her online journal every afternoon at four
While then, I'm doing the activities she did the day before

"Dear diary" she writes, and goes on to say
"Today was so busy, what and eventful day!" (4:02 p.m.)

She lists where she was: groceries, friends, and shopping
She also added that she started the day by "flip-flopping"

"Today I ate: A salad, fruit and soup" she posts
"Thanks for the perfume Shannon! It's my favourite!" she boasts

I'm watching her from everywhere
I just can't let her see
I want to be just like her
She's all I want to be

Last week she ate healthy, so that's what I'll now do
Her chanel dress she's wearing is a very light pale blue (4:25 a.m.)

Her favourite song is dancing queen (so I bet you guessed, mine too)
Her favourite band is aqua (So, I love them through and through)

She dances around her room like a silly little child
She sings into a brush, and in her mirror she smiles (4:37 p.m.)

Her favourite show is cheers, I admire her old taste
She loves her wine merlot, she won't let it go to waste

She's twenty-four years old, with the mind of a thirty-three
She loves her cheese from france, her favourite kind is brie

Her cat's name is Mindy and she loves her to death
She'd adopt another animal without taking a breath

I'm watching her from everywhere
I just can't let her see
I want to be just like her
She's all I want to be

When it's time for bed tonight, I suppose that I'll go home
What I have to do tomorrow, today I was shown

Wake up at 6, because that is what she did
Then I'll look at pictures from when I was a kid

I'll take a bath to shave, and then I'll take a shower
I'll take 42 minutes to get ready, and then I'll pick some flowers

When I have my flowers picked, and in a pretty silver vase
I'll change into my blue dress, the one she wears with lace

I'll play with my cat Cindy, until she's all worn out
Then to the beach for icecream, and then I'll walk about

I'll sit on a park bench, and call up her friend
I have Linda on speed dial, I hope I don't offend

I know with this schedule, that I am one day behind
But, I figure if she catches me, this way she wouldn't mind

I'm watching her from everywhere
I just can't let her see
I want to be just liker her
She's all I want to be

Obsessed.
