In the Zone


I'm in the zone, but in this situation, it's a bad thing

Telling me relationships ain't you, and it ain't your thing

... but you don't know, how far I'll go, to get you anything

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a simp, I'm not whipped, but seeing that smile is everything.

Helping you out isn't helping me, though

What do I look like?! 

Oh wait... don't answer that, cause my feelings for you are invisible

so you don't know what I look like, but let me help you out

I look like a god damn fool.

Thinking everything would go my way.Thinking that the girl of my dreams would appear in my arms and that we could fly away, but I'm just sunk in the shallow end of the kiddie pool.

Thinking we could have those "romantic candle lit dinners" and "laying under the stars".

But we both know I'm too far.....into the friend zone.

Now let me tell you something about the friend zone

It's not somewhere you want to be.

Once you hear "I don't want to lose you as a friend", well... there goes your chances of being together happily.

It's funny actually. But it's true and sometimes, they even hit you with a "fake family" like "you're a little brother to me"

WAIT. Hold up. 

That's just not going to work

I can't fall in love if you're my sister, that makes it even worse!

You can call me stupid for thinking we were even going to work

But I guess it's my fault for being passive

It's my fault when I offer to walk you to your classes and all

It's my failt when I offer happiness for your saddness

I'm just hurting myself.

Should I leave and put my heart on the shelf?

But first things first... I got to get out of the friend zone.



Very good one, I really related to this fairly easy. Keep up the good work!
