(guy): Her locker's down the hall. I've counted seventeen from mine.
(girl): Does he see me? Does he even know that I'm close by?
(guy): We're in the hallway always at half past nine.
(girl): Would he ever get to know me? Would he take the time?
(guy): Just need to find a way to break the ice, then I'll be fine.
(girl): How to initiate, to set the tone and catch his eye?
(guy): I ask my buddy. He's got a simple plan to try.
(girl): I'll ask his friend I know and maybe get him on my side.
(friend): Simple song, simple plan.
(guy): I'll walk up and grab her hand?
(friend): You don't have to say a word.
(guy): 'Cause if I did I'd lose my nerve.
(friend): You like her...
(guy): ...and she likes me. We'd make eachother's lives complete...
(guy and girl): ...but if this is so simple, why are we so scared to meet?
(guy): Dressed in that hoodie she looks so cute that I could die.
(girl): Was it worth it? I picked these clothes with him in mind.
(guy): I want to tell her so, but I'd stop breathing...I'm too shy.
(girl): I wish he'd talk to me - I'd talk to him, but be denied.
(girl): Please tell your friend that I'm in love with him.
(friend): I'll tell my friend that you're in love with him.
(girl): And if he laughs just tell him you're joking..and then...
(friend): And if he laughs I'll tell him I'm joking and then.
(girl): ...just let me know, I'll cry myself to sleep. Alone again.
(guy and girl): We're both retarded for eachother, why is this hard? We're spending time being scared when we should be in eachother's arms.

    General CommentTHis is my favorite song by The Pettit Project EVER.

    It's sooo good.
    I love how they trade off. and have 2 male singers

    "You like her"
    "and she likes me, we'd make eachothers lives complete"

    It's soooo good.
    I want the girls voice too...

    So good.

    General Commentthe last line is definately the best "We're both retarded for eachother, why is this hard? We're spending time being scared when we should be in eachother's arms." hehehe like other people have said this song is sooo cute and yes the girls voice is really pretty! [we're both retarded for each other hehehe]
