How Can I Get You to Look

by Julie O'Hara 2 months ago in vintage
Report Story

At me?

You come to this corner diner every night

Ordering the daily special with coffee hot and sweet

You stare at your phone, playing games and whatnot.

So baby, tell me, how can I get you to look at me?

I stand patiently by the register twirling my hair

Watching you not watching me

No matter how hard I try to get your attention

So tell me, how can I get you to look at me?

Baby, I can be your girl. And you can be my world.

I will be yours and you can be mine

Forever and for all time

Baby, I can be your girl. And you can be my world.

I will lay next to you with my head on your shoulder

With my hand on your chest, we can share all our dreams

And make love under the patchwork quilt my grandma made

So tell me, how can I get you to look at me?

I’m just that girl standing ten feet away

Sending you smiles you never receive

Topping off your coffee, I just want you to say hello

So tell me, how can I get you to look at me?
