Dashboard Confessional – For You To Notice lyrics

I'm starting to fashion an idea in my head
Where I would impress you
With every single word I said.
Would come out insightful or brave or smooth or charming
And you'd want to call me
And I would be there every time
You'd need me
I'd be there every time...
But for now I'll look so longingly
For you to want me, for you to need me, for you to notice me

    This song is highly relatable. I always feel as if I can't talk to the guy that I'm interested in, and I always play this song for strength whenever I'm weak. It gives me that little hope needed that it will be ok, that maybe, just maybe he feels the same way. It's so hard to just sit here and not say anything, and this song just puts it's heart out there for me. I absolutely love dashboard confessionals.
