This is what I look like today
And I'm trying not to pull out my hair
I'm trying hard to grow it but I'm far too shy to grow it back there
That is probably why I like wearing hats
There's no denying I'm deferring the facts
Avoiding confrontation
Lacks tact in a situation
Behind every line is a lesson yet to learn

But if you asked me
The feeling that I'm feeling is overwhelming
And oh it goes to show
There's so much to know

I wrote this for my prettiest friend
But while trying not to prove that I care
I was trying not to make all my moves in one motion and scare her away
She can't see she's making me crazy now
I don't believe she knows she's amazing how
She has me holding my breath
So I'd never guess that I'm a nonesuch unsuitable, suitor for her

And if you ask me
The feeling that I'm feeling is complimentary
And oh it goes to show
The moral of the story is boy loves girl
And so on, but the way that it unfolds is yet to be told

I know that I should be brave
Even pretty can be seen by the blind
I know that I cannot wait
Until the day we finally learn how to find each other
Redefining open minds

And if you ask me
The feeling that I'm feeling is overjoyed
And it's golden, it goes to show then
The ending of this song should be left alone
And so on cause the way it unfolds is yet to be told

    I absolutely love this song. It definitely inspires thoughts, and the slow, smooth melody of "Prettiest Friend" is one that doesn't get old. The thing is, I love this song... but so does my parents, which is kind of weird, hahaha.

    The lyrics are self-explanatory - the "narrator" loves this friend of his, and he's just over-whelmed by her beauty, and, I'm guessing, her character as well. She doesn't know that he loves her, but the "narrator" wishes that they find eachother one day.
