What Did I Think He'd See in Me?Mature

So...I was going to say that this was going to be shallow. But then I realized that when something comes from the heart, it shouldn't be labeled as "shallow." 
Yes, this is about me. Yes, it may be slightly overdramatic. May I ask that you just deal with it?

What Did I Think He'd See in Me?

Verse One
He's so perfect even when he's just standing there? 
There you are - laughing like you don't have a care
Then I look at me, just watching from the sidelines
Envying you for having what I could never claim to be mine
There he is - funny how it's harder to breathe when he's around
Funny how his every move seems extra loud
And now I see you, looking beautiful as ever
Looking at you, I know I should've known better

Chorus
Because look at you
What wouldn't he see in you?
Why wouldn't he want to hold you?
Why wouldn't he want to love you?

Verse Two
How is it I catch my breath when he walks by
How is it that he seems so poetic, just telling me "Hi"
How is it that when he smiles, I start to feel fine
How is it I'm hoping on what I just can't find

Chorus
Because look at you
What wouldn't he see in you?
Why wouldn't he want to hold you?
Why wouldn't he want to love you? 
Then look at me
Why would he ever notice me?
Why would he ever want to talk to me?
What did I think he'd see in me?

Bridge
Oh, now matter how many times I tell myself
It just doesn't seem to work
Even though he seems to fall deeper every time
You speak one single word

 Chorus
Because look at you
What wouldn't he see in you?
Why wouldn't he want to hold you?
Why wouldn't he want to love you? 
Then look at me
Why would he ever notice me?
Why would he ever want to talk to me?
What did I think he'd see in me?

The End
