Hello let me introduce myself
I'm the song that isn't asking for your attention
I'll play in the background all you want me to
You can talk over me all you want; I'll fade into the distance
As verse after verse, and line after line pass through
Soft and sweet doesn't always cut it
And I've never been one to take a chance
But here's my chance

It's a chorus that sounds just like the verse
No little bit better or tiny bit worse
It's a chorus that sounds rushed and out of time
But it's too scared to say anything out of line
It's a chorus that refuses to repeat again
Till it's a chorus that's come to an early end
It's a chorus you never chose to let come first
Which is why, for now, it remains a verse.

Hello let me re-introduce myself
I'm the song that wants just a little of your attention
But I'm still not asking much
I wanna be the soundtrack to your summer romance
Or the song you can't get enough of
Even though it hurts
Soft and sweet never cut it for me
I was always too quiet to have a chance
But here's my chance

It's a chorus that sounds just like the verse
No little bit better or tiny bit worse
It's a chorus that sounds rushed and out of time
But it's too scared to say anything out of line
It's a chorus that refuses to repeat again
Till it's a chorus that's come to an early end
It's a chorus you never chose to let come first
Which is why, for now, it remains a verse.

Hello let me butt in once again
I'm the bridge that's asking all ears to come close
For a final close.

Hello, I need no introduction
I'm the last verse of a song soon to be forgotten
Lets all pretend like this wasn't expected
And we can all have the most shocked expressions
And I have a feeling we won't be fooling anyone
But ourselves
And for now all I can do is wait
Until the words of the heart of the writer fade out
Cause that's when I know my time is done
I've served my purpose
And it's only a matter of time
Until someone listens to the words
I've been waiting to say
