"For You I Will (Confidence)" as written by Billy Mann and Teddy Geiger....
I'm wandering the streets in a world underneath it all
Nothing seems to be
Nothing tastes as sweet as what I can't have
Like you and the way that you're twisting your hair round your finger
Tonight I'm not afraid to tell you
What I feel about you

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannonball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will for you I will

forgive me if I st-stutter
From all the clutter in my head
Cause I could fall asleep in those eyes
Like a water bed
Do I seem familiar
I crossed you in hallways a thousand times
No more camouflage
I want to be exposed
And not be afraid to fall

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannonball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will for you I will

Always want what you can't have
But I got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will, for you I will, for you I will

if I could dim the lights in the mall
And create a mood, I would
And shout out your name so it echoes in every room
I would

that's what I'd do
That's what I'd do
To get through to you

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannonball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will for you I will

Always want what you can't have
But I got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will, for you I will, for you I will

    General CommentIt's about liking someone from afar who wears blinders, who hasn't ever really seen you even though they've passed you in the hall (at school?) hundreds of times. He's saying he wants this girl to notice him, and that he will muster all of the confidence he has in order to finally tell her how he feels. Telling your crush how you feel is thrilling and scary, like a cannonball into the water. And he's right, you always want what you can't have, but he's going to try to get the girl anyway. I think most people can relate.

    General Commenti've felt like this before, where you want to explain what you feel...and then you decide not to, but the girl just drives your mind insane and takes your emotions on a trip....a few hours later as she says goodnight, you realize you kinda cannonballed into water and your not sure if you should try to swim or just drown

    General Commentteddy geiger is so beautiful, as are his lyrics. i can definitely relate to this song, along with many other people. he is saying that he has had his eye on this girl, and he has seen her in the halls. she has a boyfriend, but he wants what he cant have. hes saying he gonna use all the confidence he can bring himself to have and try to get the girl.

    General Commenti first heard this song when he played the role of "wayne" in love monkey, a showed that was recently taken off the air...i thought that it was just part of the show that wayne would sing and make songs but apparently it wasnt..and im glad cos his music is really good...its kind of soothing almost like john mayer...almost.
