Kinetics & One Love – Sign Language lyrics

[Hook: Wynter Gordon]
I wanna show you that I care
But I don't have the nerve
I wanna say I love you
But I can't find the words
I wish that you could know how I
Really felt all of this time
But no matter what I do
You can't see the signs

[Verse 1: Kinetics]
He was an average teen, he partied often and he sagged his jeans
Sat in the very back of the class so he could nap and dream
And fantasize about the girl he was obsessed with
The one who stole his heart and always kept it
Cause ever since the seventh grade
She was always standin' in his center stage
But every time he tried to talk to her, she would just step away
And though she never spoke to him, it didn't matter
Cause Billy never liked the chit-chatter
So what if a little passive? To him she was attractive
He could sense a massive personality perfectly by the way she acted
Plus she wrote poems for the paper every month
It was the lines on the page that had him fallin' in love
But he never told his friends, they would say that he was crazy
So no one ever found out that Billy liked Amy
He just gracefully endured, being blatantly ignored
But sooner or later, Billy wouldn't take it anymore

[Hook]
I wanna show you that I care
But I don't have the nerve
I wanna say I love you
But I can't find the words
I wish that you could know how I
Really felt all of this time
But no matter what I do
You can't see the signs

[Verse 2: Kinetics]
He was an average teen, he partied often and he sagged his jeans
Sat in the very back of the class so he could nap and dream
And fantasize about the girl he was obsessed with
The one who stole his heart and always kept it
So he's takin' his chances, day after day of wasted advances
He was always lonely without a date for the dances
'Till he decided that he would try to do something bold
He would make his feelings known by reciting her a poem
Like the poems she was publishing every month in the paper
He grabbed a pen and pad and then he labored
Sat and he crafted it, and then he practiced it, had to have it immaculate
But half of it just ended up scribbled and trash basketed
'Till he finally mastered it, and recited it perfectly
Yo this was a life or death emergency
But you can't be nervous, B, you could risk it all
So you need to stand tall, and approach her in the hall (deep breath)
"Yo what up tuts? I'm at the entrance of your palace
And I think that I been starin' at aurora borealis
You shine so bright that you could light up the sky
And Columbus with a compass would get lost in your eyes"
But her reaction was absurd
All she did was stare back without sayin' a single word
And gave him a weird look
She tried sayin' something with her hands but she couldn't
Cause she was carryin' books
But that was all that it took, Billy was too crushed
Had to run away so nobody would see the tears rush
And for the rest of the week, he locked himself in his apartment
Cause he didn't have the strength to face the world so broken-hearted
After seven days of darkness, got a letter in the mail
But before he even looked at it, he let that ship sail
He was too concerned with all the sadness in his life
So instead of a letter opener he grabbed a kitchen knife

[Hook]
I wanna show you that I care
But I don't have the nerve
I wanna say I love you
But I can't find the words
I wish that you could know how I
Really felt all of this time
But no matter what I do
You can't see the signs

[Verse 3: Kinetics]
She was far from your average teen
The quiet type who never had a scene
Studied often and wrote poems for the school magazine
She had a little secret and she always kept it
There was a boy that she was obsessed with
So when she wrote a poem for the school paper every month
Every line on the page was dedicated to her crush
But she never told her friends, they would say that it was silly
So no one ever found out that Amy liked Billy
'Till the day that Billy stopped her by her locker during school
But she couldn't understand him and responded like a fool
And gave him a weird look
She tried doin' sign language, but she couldn't cause she was
Carryin' all her books
See, even though Amy was equally obsessed
She was too embarrassed to tell him that she was born deaf
Avoided him at school, but to make her love known
She would leave him little signs through the lines of her poems
So she sent one to his home, after seven days passed
Cause it seemed like Billy wasn't showin' up to class
So she's going home confused, trapped in the worst mood
Flippin' on the TV to a tragic story on the news
It was a picture of your average teen, all it said was this:
"LOCAL TEEN SUICIDAL WITH A KNIFE TO HIS WRIST"
At the scene where he died was a letter never read
From a girl named Amy and it said

[Hook]
I wanna show you that I care
But I don't have the nerve
I wanna say I love you
But I can't find the words
I wish that you could know how I
Really felt all of this time
But no matter what I do
You can't see the signs

[Outro: Kinetics]
So if you have something to say to somebody, then do it now
