I had to sit there and listen to poetry all day
And I tried to escape but they wouldn’t let me run away
So I tried to hide but they wouldn’t let me hide
So I tried to find you but I couldn’t find you anywhere

And I was sitting next to you in the Biology lecture
And I pretended I didn’t understand just to capture your attention
And then I smiled and then you smiled
And then I smiled and it was all worth my while, all worth my while

But later on by the sofa, I wanted to kiss you, I wanted to kiss you
But I couldn’t get that close, no, I couldn’t get that close
And when you opened your eyes it was like
You didn’t want to see my face in your personal space
And I wanted to run away, yeah, I wanted to run away

‘Cause I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not
Yeah, I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not

And I wanted to tell someone they should write some golden poetry
‘Cause it would get them far in the music industry
It’d do them good, and I guess that’s what I’m doing now
I’m doing good, yeah, I knew I’d have to do it sometime

And I hope I get to see you on February the fourteenth
‘Cause then we might be able to try this whole thing again
So, valentine, oh, you could be my valentine
Oh, it’s the time, will you be my valentine?

But later on by the sofa, I wanted to kiss you, I wanted to kiss you
But I couldn’t get that close, no, I couldn’t get that close
And when you opened your eyes it was like
You didn’t want to see my face in your personal space
And I wanted to run away, yeah, I wanted to run away

‘Cause I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not
Yeah, I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not

Well, I’m starting to worry that I’m sounding like [afraid]
‘Cause I hate the way you talk about sadness and life decay
But they must talk some sense if they knew how to save a life
But I never talk sense and I haven’t done this right
(x2)

Last year on the sofa, I wanted to kiss you, I wanted to kiss you
But I couldn’t get that close, no, I couldn’t get that close
And when you opened your eyes it was like
You didn’t want to see my face in your personal space
And I wanted to run away, yeah, I wanted to run away

I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not
Yeah, I was told that you loved me, I was told that you loved me
But obviously not
