I thought I meant something to you
Once, I watched for you out a window.
Once, I watched for you through a computer screen.
Once, I watched for you from beyond a door.
You meant something to me

I thought we had something
Once, I waited for you behind a window.
Once, I waited for you behind a computer screen.
Once, I waited for you behind a door.
You were everything to me

I thought it would go on forever
Once, I wondered if I would always watch for you out the window.
Once, I wondered if I would always watch for you through a computer screen.
Once, I wondered if I would always watch for you from beyond a door.
You were forever in those moments

Now I just think
Did you watch for me from behind the window?
Did you watch for me from behind a computer screen?
Did you watch for me from behind a door?
I don’t think so

Is it any wonder
That I stopped waiting out of windows
That I stopped waiting through computer screens
That I stopped waiting beyond doors
Why would I bother

Not just those things
I stopped hoping
I stopped dreaming
I stopped taking the risk
I don’t want to put myself out there yet again

Only to be forgotten
While I’m stuck wondering
What could have been
I no longer do those things
Because I’m still waiting for you.

Even though I don’t want to.
No, this isn't about unrequited love. Well, in a way it is. But not the usual kind.

I did my best. It's just something I had to do.

A lot of people would be afraid to stick so tightly to their set structure and would have deviated from it far earlier than you did. The effect is that coveted turning point that fascinates so many writers and eludes many of us.
