Just Friends

We were friends

But that might’ve been a lie

Because every time I saw him I got butterflies

And though he was probably just being polite

When he wished me goodnight

I thought it was so sweet

Even my heart skipped a beat

And through the same jokes he told

It would never get old

He actually listened to what I said

And not just to reply, but to understand what was going on in my head

We could sit and talk for hours

About our dream superpowers

Or lay and stare at the stars

As the music blares from the car

And when he asked if I waned to dance

How could I not take a chance

We were friends

But we stared into each other’s eyes a little too long to be just friends
