I Wish You Knew

I wish you knew,
I really did.
It tears me apart that I can't
tell you what's on my mind.
All those times I passed
with only a quick glance.
I wish I could tell you,
I wish you knew.
I wish you knew that
when I passed you the other day
with a guy latched on my arm,
I didn't hear a word he said
and saw you out of the corner
of my eye.
I wish you knew that
you're tearing me apart.
I want you to be with me,
but you have a girlfriend that,
in my opinion,
doesn't treat you right.
And I wish you knew that
I wouldn't do that to you.
You would be my beacon of light,
the hope in my day.
I would be true to you,
and never sneak around
like she does.
And,
lastly, I wish you knew
that you're what I think about
when the sun is lively
and also when it's dormant.
