That Girl

I'll always be that girl, the one you just call friend.
So as my feelings grow for you, I have to play pretend.
So I act as if it doesn't hurt when you don't return my call.
I try so hard to pretend that it doesn't hurt at all.
Inside I'm going insane and I don't know what to do.
Because as I watch you fall in love with her,
I realize that I'm in love with you.
Looking at my reflection and seeing only what I lack.
Wondering if I were a pretty girl,
would you love me back?
Crying on my bed I really start to doubt,
I'll ever get that first kiss.
The one girls dream about.
Because even as I start getting
over you,
I can still feel my heart breaking in two.
Because I'll always be that girl,
the one they just call friend.
I'll forever hide myself.
I'll always play pretend.
