Lyrics

He thought you were awesome He thought I was awesome? My brother? Definitely! How? Well, he said There's nothing like your smile Sort of subtle and perfect and real He said You never knew how wonderful That smile could make someone feel And he knew Whenever you get bored You scribble stars on the cuffs of your jeans And he noticed That you still fill out the quizzes That they put in those teen magazines But he kept it all inside his head What he saw he left unsaid And though he wanted to He couldn't talk to you He couldn't find the way But he would always say If I could tell her Tell her everything I see If I could tell her How she's everything to me But we're a million worlds apart And I don't know how I would even start If I could tell her If I could tell her Did he say anything else? About you? Never mind, I don't really care anyways No, no, no just, no, no he said, he said so many things I'm just, I'm trying to remember the best ones so, um He thought You looked really pretty, er It looked pretty cool when you put indigo streaks in your hair He did? And he wondered how you learned to dance Like all the rest of the world isn't there But he kept it all inside his head What he saw he left unsaid If I could tell her Tell her everything I see If I could tell her How she's everything to me But we're a million worlds apart And I don't know how I would even start If I could tell her If I could tell her But what do you do when there's this great divide? He just seemed so far away And what do you do when the distance is too wide? It's like I don't know anything And how do you say I love you I love you I love you I love you But we're a million worlds apart And I don't know how I would even start If I could tell her If I could
