Two Seats Away

Did you ever have that girl in class

That was just two seats away

And you found yourself looking

Her way almost every day

You didn’t want your eyes to meet

Afraid to catch her stare

But you couldn’t help yourself

From glancing at her hair

Drowning out everything

That the teacher has to say

Because you’re staring at the girl

That was just two seats away

 

You rush to class

Just to get a glance

And you steal one

Whenever you get the chance

What could it be

That has your eyes stuck

What is it about her

That has you awe-struck

Maybe it’s the way

That she holds her books in her hands

Or the way she hold her hair

Up in those headbands

Lost in a new world

And cant find your way

Because you’re focused on the girl

That was just two seats away

 

This day seems different

So you turn to greet

But what you find there

Is an empty seat

That was the first effort

And you don’t know when

You will muster the courage

To talk again

This time the girl

That was just two seats away

Switched things up

And is not here today
