well, it's been about a month or two

can't really say I hadn't seen this coming;

it's hard to keep these emotions inside

knowing that you'll just want to avoid me forever.


finding out that I wasn't doing my best,

or maybe I let myself become such an abusive person,


it's tragic to have to see you walk out the door like this.


of course, things could be made better,

I know we both have our own personal issues,

but baby, I can't seem to let you go,

oh no, not after all these years.


I can't imagine seeing myself with another,

I don't need another "fish" or "someone",

I know I can become stronger on my own, but,

I really want you to be here next to me, again.


Tell me this is only for a short period of time,

I can't imagine trying to be without you, my best friend.

falling so deep in love with you, baby,

I don't want to let go of you.


of course the only way is being friends,

fix the errors of our ways on our own,

and everyday, I try to maintain one goal:

be kind and always leave with a hug.


I know I shouldn't even be doing this but,

when in love, you follow your heart

I do this whenever I know I want to work hard for something I desire

and my desire, baby, is you.


I don't think there's anyone who understands,

quite like you, baby

I would do anything to keep you in my life

so I keep everything in, or else you might go.


I've been better,

I hope you notice it too.

All I really want to do is repair a broken friendship,

and then aim for a second chance, baby.


who cares if I'm the one who's still thinking like this,

but these past few weeks got me thinking

you've allowed me to be with you between classes

and stay up all night talking to me like old times.


I wouldn't dare want this to end,

but baby, please tell me you miss me too.

I know the past was a struggle to get over,

but I've made a change and realized everything


I don't want to be focused on expectations on who we were,

two to three months ago,

I want to start fresh, like if we just met

and rebuild a love as fun as it was before


only this time it will be different,

adults don't need to have constant relief

when love is truly there, you don't need to worry about a thing.


so baby please, don't shy away from me,

I honestly think we were meant to be

I really want to tell you how I feel,

but you'll just walk away


best friends don't look at each other like that

with genuinity and kindness,

our roast sessions to each other

are what make this relationship unique


no one needs to know about my business or yours

but all I really know is,

I'm following my heart

and I desire to be yours again someday soon.
