I'm tugging out my hair
I'm pulling at my clothes
I'm trying to keep my cool
I know it shows
I'm staring at my feet
My checks are turning red
I'm searching for the words inside my head

[Pre-Chorus]
(And) I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth this
Yeah

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you - away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess I'm pushing my life away
With these things I'll never say

It don't do me any good
It's just a waste of time
What use is it to you
What's on my mind
If ain't coming out
We're not going anywhere
So why can't I just tell you that I care

(Cause) I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you - away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess I'm pushing my life away
With these things I'll never say

What's wrong with my tongue
These words keep slipping away
I stutter, I stumble
Like I've got nothing to say

(Cause) I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

Guess I'm pushing my life away with these things I'll never say
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you - away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Yes, I'm pushing my life away
With these things I'll never say
These things I'll never say

    The thoughts of someone who has fallen in love with a friend and doesn't know how to tell them. The fear ends up making them mute and they know that the two of them will never be together because that one person doesn't have the courage to say what they want to.

    Hey, trivial means "not very important, serious, or valuable"
    if you don't know the meaning of such words, you shouldn't use it.
    No offence, i just hate it when people get meaning of words wrong XD

    This song's about how she's scared to tell someone that she likes him. She's scared of getting turned down because she wants to spend the rest of her life with him. It's how everyone feels before they tell someone they like them basically. Very relatable

    It's a good song, and I'm not the biggest fan of Avril. Emo, I think you meant "non-trivial"... Trivial means unimportant/small/little...

    And in the words of Brandon Lee/Eric Draven "Believe me, nothing is trivial."
