"Why Didn't I?" as written by Jason Levine, Michael Bruno and Jason Rosen....
I shoulda listened to that little voice inside my head
When I saw her in the study typing on her Mac.
The place was packed, but I still felt like we were all alone,
Then I started to lose my nerve why am I taking so long?
I had a million questions running up inside my head:
Is she lonely? Is she tired? Does she got a man? What does she wear in bed?
But I just stood there frozen and she got away.

It coulda been me and you together walking in the rain.
We coulda been making out and making plans to run away.
But here I am all alone outside and I really wish I told her everything that I was feeling inside.

I had an angel by my side.
Why didn't I? Didn't I?
I had angel by my side.

I started to ask around if anyone might know her name.
A friend of hers told me that she thought she was single again.
That's all the info that I needed to keep hope alive.
I searched the dorm and the caf and the laundromat and the park and ride.
Then one fateful day I saw her at the top of the stairs,
So I got up my courage, started walking over there.
And as I did I saw another guy with his hand in her hair.
I guess I was too late.

It coulda been me and you together walking in the rain.
We coulda been making out and making plans to run away.
But here I am all alone outside and I really wish I told her everything that I was feeling inside.

I had an angel by my side.
Why didn't I? Didn't I?
I had angel by my side,
And I felt like I could die.

Then she turned around, she walked over to me.
She said 'I noticed you noticing me.'
I said 'Who's the guy?'
She said 'Just a friend and I've been wondering where you've been!'
And we walked around and we got to know each other very well that fall.

And now it's me and you together walking in the rain.
And now we're making out and making plans to run away.
'Cause I was so alone outside and I really wanna tell her everything that I was feeling inside.

I had an angel by my side.
Why didn't I? Didn't I?
I had angel by my side.
Why didn't I? Didn't I?
I had angel by my side.
Why didn't I? Didn't I?
Why didn't I? Why didn't I?
Why didn't I? Why didn't I?

    General CommentI love Honor Society!

    This song is the story of a girl and a boy who go to the same college/university. He notices her for the first time and instantly feels something for her, but as he was working up the nerve to talk to her she got away. He starts imagining what life could have been like with her, and asks himself "why didn't I". Everything else is pretty much narrated :) Of course, it ends with them getting pretty cozy in the fall ;)
