Why are you so far away?
Even when you're standing next to me
Your eyes give you away
Telling secrets when your mouth don't feel like talking

And I'll be your Lloyd Dobbler
With a boom box out in the street
And I'll be there if you need someone
Even if he isn't me

Lying in your bed
As lights dance across the ceiling
And I listen to you breathe
Toss and turn in your sleep
And I wish that you'd believe

That I'll be your Lloyd Dobbler
With a boom box out in the street
And I'll be there if you need someone
Even if he isn't me

There's a Norman Rockwell painting
Of two kids sitting on a bench
It reminds me of all the stupid things
I'd like for us to share but I don't care

    General CommentOk let's just call the characters Jamia and Frank. Frank and Jamia are best friends, then Jamia gets a new boyfriend. Frank is disappointed that after being Jamia's best friend for years on end (let's say since they were five) she chose new guy over him. Basically all Frank is telling Jamia is that he'll still be there for her no matter what, but not in the way that Jamia may be thinking. He wants to confess his love for her, and does so by holding a boom box right outside her house, blaring some love song in the middle of the night (or day, I just think night sets the perfect scene though).

    I love this song; it's mine and my friend's song. :)
