"The Way I Feel Inside" as written by and R. Argent....
Should I try to hide
The way I feel inside
My heart for you?

Would you say that you
Would try to love me too?

In your mind
Could you ever be
Really close to me?

I can tell the way you smile
If I feel that I
Could be certain then
I would say the things I want to say tonight

But 'til I can see
That you'd really care for me
I will dream
That someday you'll be
Really close to me

I can tell the way you smile
If I feel that I
Could be certain then
I would say the things I want to say tonight

But 'til I can see
That you'd really care for me
I'll keep trying to hide
The way I feel inside

    General CommentI like how this song expresses a universal emotion that everyone has experienced at at least one point in their life.

    General Commenthe sounds so naked and humble in this song. that vulnerable state when you care so much about something you're afraid to do or say anything to disturb it.

    to me this song does a brilliant job at conveying that quiet and private feeling you have when you're very fond of someone but have no real hope of it flourishing into anything more than silent longing from afar.

    General Commentthe way it starts out only with vocals, and then builds up with the sustained notes is killer. i love this song, its the first zombies song i ever heard, thanks to the life aquatic, like alot of people, i guess

    yay!

    General CommentI like the way delial says it. Makes me think of this Taiwanese girl I knew. I was friendly with her and I was very fond of her but we didn't really have anything in common. I drew a picture of her before I knew her and she acted like she hated it but I think she'd have let me draw her again if I asked. I remember her cell phone got stolen and someone hid it in a potted plant in the boy's restroom after the teachers found out. Before they found it they sent us out of the room and searched our bags. A few guys got sent to the office for having stuff in their backpacks. She searched my bag and found a pack of cigarettes. Later on, after they'd found the cell phone, she passed me a note:
    (Do you smoke?)
    I laughed a little.
    "Well, do you?"
    "Why?"
    "When we were looking through the bags."
    I laughed again. "Thanks for not saying anything."
    "Yeah."
    She was pretty preppy though. And she wanted me to teach her guitar but she wouldn't cut her nails no matter how much I told her it wouldn't work. I figured she didn't give a shit about me but when I transferred out of there she and this other girl I knew okay (she was really cool and we were really alike. I wish I had known her better) made a card and had everybody sign it with farewell wishes and all that crap. It was supposed to be a surprise but I knew about it. It was kind of nice though. I distanced myself from everybody because we were going to move and I hated the place we were living and the school I was going to. I transferred there in the middle of the year and I was leaving near the end of the year so I just felt like I was passing through. So I went to the faculty room to say bye to the teachers and everything and she was there having one last person sign the card so she wouldn't let me leave when I was done. She gave me the card and was joking around and everything,. "You cheater, leaving everybody here. Why do you have to go?" She was looking at me, pretending to be sad and then she smiled. (Fuck.) So I told her that I had feelings for her but that I realized we had nothing in common and she just nodded like she was saying, “Yeah, I know”. It was kind of funny in front of everybody.
    I realized after I left that I actually had some pretty good friends outside of school. I was too busy hating the place to realize. I guess that’s sort of a boring story…
    But I think the song is about having feelings of romantic love for the other person so now that I think of it my story doesn’t have much relevance. Yeah, the Zombies are much underrated.
