i was hoping you’d have gotten it by now
i thought you said that you were good at these guessing games,
yet, i still didn’t want to call you out.
u know these lyrics sound much better without names

but if you need me to,
i can write this out to use:
pay attention to the letters and the words
if you’ll just listen close
you’ll hear me crying out to you
by name.

i was hoping you’d have understood these songs
i crafted carefully and i carved initials into
wooden hearts and boxes made with love.
a lot of effort, a lot of time, for no reward.

but if you need a call,
i’ll pretend that i don’t care at all
i’ll jump alone into a volcano
to survive in “the friend zone,”
you’ll hear me crying out to you
by name.
does this make sense
