"Hardly" as written by and Paul Hayden Desser....
Could I be the one thing
Missing from your life and from your everyday?
I need you to be beside me
Why don't you call me and we'll see?

I see you having coffee
You are almost beside me
Laughing with your friends
I tell Lorraine to look at you
I tell her I need to tell you

I don't know you, you, but I want to, to
I just can't leave here without telling you
Just how lonely I've been lately
You are just as lonely, maybe?
We should go out for some coffee

I wonder how I can
Give you my phone number
And not be so afraid?
I ask Lorraine to give it to you
When I go to the washroom

I return to the table
I look, but I'm unable
To find you anywhere
I ask Lorraine to look for you
I tell her I needed to tell you

Don't know you, you, but I want to, to
I just can't leave here without telling you
Just how lonely I've been lately
You are just as lonely, maybe?
We should go out for some coffee

On the way out the door
Lorraine lets me know
That she went up to you
Gave you my number and said
'Call him or else he'll be sad'

And I waited, waited, for two weeks and, and
I realized that you'd never call me
How could I have been so stupid
I should have gone up to you and
Told you myself how you made me feel

    General CommentThis song is amazing. It's about the reluctance a guy has with asking a girl he's attracted to out. He finally convinces a female friend to ask the girl out for him, and never receives a call he was hoping for. Basically he's saying here, that when it comes to these sort of these things, you must seize the moment, and not be chickenshit about it..
