Distance
 

I see you everyday,

But I never have the courage to say, "hey."

You're held on a pedestal

Higher than the rest,

But I don't think my best

Will ever catch your eye.

You seem like the perfect guy.

I constantly think of you.

My mind is never clear.

I've been told to give it up,

To stop hoping for something that is not very near.

The distance between us is insurmountable.

I don't think you'll ever see

Just how much you mean to me.
