You seem more interested in me
than I in you
that happens
so when you contact me
I am rude
trying to push you away
and if that won't work
then I'll know
you're insane
and I'll need to do more than be rude
and if it works
that is good
I feel safe

Of course things would be different
if you were much younger
if you looked different
I know I am shallow
I don't like it, but I am
and I do like it
and if this fantasy were true
then I would be the needy one
wondering what you were thinking
hoping I'd hear from you

So I'm left hoping
the next time I see you
is a matter of chance
rather than choice
and I'm left pursuing
my shallow dreams
