When I first laid eyes on you
I felt a flash of déjà vu
Without a drink to say I do
Guess you're not the perfect sign

And though I'd see you once again
I knew that we would just be friends
It's too much work to say it now
It's just a crush to pass the time

And the dreams, they come again
Where I'll see you dancing with talking heads
But you'll never know of this affliction
It's emotional addiction

You know I'll never make a move, but it's okay
Saw you crying from a broken heart, but that's okay
But I'll still hold you close today
You know, in just a friend way

It's easy when you stand in line
I see your name right next to mine
How many words are in a smile
I guess you're not the flirting kind

All the other boys admire
The way you seem to light their fire
I know I'd never stand to win this fight
It's just a crush to pass the time

And the dreams, they come again
Where I'll see you dancing with the talking heads
But you'll never know of this affliction
It's emotional addiction

You know I'll never make a move, but it's okay
Saw you crying from a broken heart, but that's okay
But I'll still hold you close today
You know, in just a friend way

    General CommentI know this feeling. Trying to be close to someone when you just know they're not into it. Oh well, good song!
