this song may sound a little cliched but it's true and i just wrote how i felt so any criticisms not on the subject would be appreciated

Just Friends
I met this girl, in junior high school
We got to talkin’ she was really cool
We had all the same classes, ate the same lunch
We were good friends within a month
We laughed and talked walkin’ down the hall
Talked about everything big and small
I just thought of her as a friend
But hoped she wasn’t just a passing trend

Chorus
We’re just friends
But I want so much more
We’re just friends
Who knows what’s in store
We’re just friends
Waited and missed my chance
We’re just friends
Now they’re holdin’ hands
And goin’ on dates
And I’m the one that I hate
Cause I was too scared
And now I’m too late
So I guess I’ll just
Sit here and wait
For something to go my way

All of a sudden my feelings changed
The way I felt was rearranged
It all started with a dream
Her and I were kissing
After that I couldn’t help but stare
And admire her her shiny hair
Soon I couldn’t stop thinkin’ of her
About how she’s the perfect girl

Chorus
We’re just friends
But I want so much more
We’re just friends
Who knows what’s in store
We’re just friends
Waited and missed my chance
We’re just friends
Now they’re holdin’ hands
And goin’ on dates
And I’m the one that I hate
Cause I was too scared
And now I’m too late
So I guess I’ll just
Sit here and wait
For something to go my way

It was early December my one big chance
Was gonna ask her to the Christmas dance
I thought long and hard ‘bout what to say
Kept putting it off day after day
Finally I figured out how to ask
But by then my chance had past
It was like a nightmare I couldn’t escape
She was with him and I was too late

Chorus
We’re just friends
But I want so much more
We’re just friends
Who knows what’s in store
We’re just friends
Waited and missed my chance
We’re just friends
Now they’re holdin’ hands
And goin’ on dates
And I’m the one that I hate
Cause I was too scared
And now I’m too late
So I guess I’ll just
Sit here and wait
For something to go my way

Honestly...It's just too obvious.

I get the feeling and all, and keep writing songs, because it will get better, but right now it's just sounding like another teen angst song. Which there are far too many of.

Like I said, I get where you're coming from, sometimes it's good to get this out, but this just isn't good.

But keep at it and it'll get better. That's...really the only way it'll happen. Go for it!

Oh, and I just read a little further, better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all, bud.

We're behind you
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*
