Just Friends

I see her across the room
She is my destiny, my life
Statuesque, perfection
The one I want to be my wife

She is the best there is,
how I do love her so!
More than life itself
She'll never know

For despite my honest intent
My love is but one way
I hold no interest for her
My love, my actions did betray

Just friends
is all we can be
I want so much more
Can't she see?

In my life I've had many dreams
Most were foolish, some were true
This fantasy is real
This love sensation, new

But I'm fooling myself
She doesn't care about me
She never did
Now I can see

I can't live without her
But I'm gonna try
It's all I can do every day
Just to get by

Just friends
is all we are
There's no love between us
We'll never go that far

I want to hate her
but she's just too damn nice
Innocent in a way
All sugar and spice

She says she's not ready
Not looking for
a relationship with anyone
It shakes me to the core

Just friends
I wish it didn't bother me--that I didn't care
All I long for
is someone my life with which to share

Just friends
much to my sorrow
But I take heart
for there's always tomorrow!
