I was once put in the friend zone,
Before the friend zone was a thing,
I was put there once and for the longest time,
I let it burn and I let it sting.
Weíd been friends since we were kids,
She was that cutest girl in my class,
I was the nerdy quirky boy sheíd confide in,
And that was the zone Iíd never pass.
Growing up I had the biggest crush on her,
But I knew we couldnít be more than friends,
I tried so hard not let it any of it out,
It was so difficult to just play pretend.
By high school she was very popular,
I was too but our cliques were of different kinds,
And though I had hinted at the thought of love,
She had already drawn that line.
And in growing older we also grew apart,
We didnít have those lasting conversations anymore,
It was a sign of the time, it kind of tore at my heart,
Fate as it seemed had something else in store.
But that was ok with me, I didnít want to ruin it,
Because she loved me ďlike a friendĒ,
Oh those words can singe, it makes anyone cringe,
Those whoíve heard these words know itís the end.
I was put in that zone and launched into outer space,
So I kept going exploring the boundaries of the universe,
And in my journey I met someone else,
Sometimes you canít put the ship into reverse.
It was somewhere by Rigel in the constellation of Orion,
When a message transmitted came in way too late,
She confided in a friend, she regretted her decision,
She realized her feelings and called me her soul mate.
Whoís in the friend zone now?
