I want to go out with that boy
The one who makes me laugh
Asks to borrow my eyeliner
And if his fringe is messy enough
The boy they call strange
The guy that is my best friend
We’re so in love
But my friends know nothing about it
They think I like the guy with highlights
Talks all day long about football
With my boy I can talk about secret things
Share my emotions through writing
And not feel embarrassed
After all he has people laughing at him
He’s not gonna judge
So he’s emo
And I’m so not
But why can’t the funny girl
That everyone likes
Go out with the boy she loves
The pale faced outcast
Yeah he’s got piercings
But he’s so more deserving than
The typical sport fanatic
Can’t you see I don’t fancy him?
I want to be with the guy
Head banging in the background
In the black skinny jeans
No one would ever think
But soon enough they won't have to
I'm gonna get with my emotional boy
Nice girl with the emo
Everyone knows me as
The girl everybody knows
From now on I'll be known as
The girl going out with the scary weirdo
I bet they visit graveyards together
Why's she going out with the corpse?
Ever spoken to him?
I didn't think so
Ever talked about him?
That's what I thought
Are you my friend?
You are? Well accept him
Do you know how much this means to me?
Let me spell it out then
He listens intently
With actual interest
I can tell him everything
But he already knows it
He's beautiful but no one sees
Underneath the white make up grease
He's funny when he wants to be
Always when he's with me
He doesn't mind you at all
But you won't even speak when he's around
His death like silence in the corridors
Doesn't apply when he's spoken to
I'm in love with my best friend
The 'zombie boy' the 'living dead'
So people like me and I have friends
Doesn't mean I can't love him
The smiley girl and her best friend
Walked into school hand in hand
Guess I'll have to put up with it all
The nice girl is going out with the emo.
