Prom Queen

 
Back in high school, I went to the prom with the girl who was the Prom Queen. As friends. And to my misery, that’s all we were.
In those days of strange and uncontrolable hormones, it's no fun being in love with someone who is your best friend. I doubt I'm the only high schooler who has ever dealt with this sucky situation. If you kiss her, she might not feel the same way and you lose her friendship. If you don’t, you’d better be ready to repress your true feelings and hate yourself daily while you watch her drift away into other guy's arms.

Prom Queen

Long dark hair, curled bouncing everywhere.
Skin soft as snow and pure as mountain air.
Face more beautiful than any other here.
The big brown eyes can see my every fear.

She smiles at me and I reach for her hand.
She looks so pretty laying in the sand.
I know this girl is wild about me.
And I want her more than almost anything.
But our friendship is what I want to keep.

She’s here, but I can’t touch her.
I’m afraid she’ll run away.
I want hher so very badly.
It’s a choice I’ve got to make.

When she’s near I’m always feeling good.
Why she’s not mine I never understood.
She’s most important to me in the end.
This beauty queen is also my best friend.
I want her for who she is to me.

The way she crosses to me.
The sparkle in her eye.
It’s all I need to see before
I want this girl for mine.

I can’t go on living my life like this.
Living everyday thinking about her kiss.
Will she want to make our friendship more?
There’s only one way I can be for sure.
