Dear God, Help Me

Chapter 39
Ouch

Alana. That's her name. She's really pretty, and she's amazing. I got her to open up to me, which I thought might mean she liked me. Plus, I once asked her why she didn't scream at me (Though she clearly wanted to) when I wouldn't let her hang up the phone until she talked to me about what was bugging her. She said she couldn't tell me. All this together, I thought she liked me. Then I realized she likes a different guy named Nathaniel, and that last night she stayed up just to talk to him...

"Ouch"

I was hoping to snag your attention.
As you were passing by, I guess.
You go through so much and I know
That you've got a lot going on.
Underneath that tough shell of yours,
Lies somebody waiting to crumble.
And I wish I could tell you some day...

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be your night,
For just you and me.

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be everything,
If I only got a chance.

Your head is spinning and he
Doesn't know that you exist.
Little did you know that
I'm going through the same thing,
But it's a bit twisted around.
You don't know I'm here,
But I was always waiting.

And it's getting harder for me
To stay right back in my place.
Because . . . . .

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be your night,
For just you and me.

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be everything,
If I only got a chance.

And I want to hold you
I am right over here,
Why can't you turn around?
Don't you know I will
Wait every day for you?

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be your night,
For just you and me.

I am right over here,
Turn around and see,
I could be everything,
If I only got a chance.
