Wallflower

If I were just a plain wallflower
I probably wouldnt bloom
Id sit on a shelf somewhere
Gathering dust in your room

Youd walk by me without a thought
Not even a glance my way
You probably wouldnt think of me
Not like I do of you everyday

Seems Im always the one hearing
But Im never the one whos heard
Maybe wallflowers dont talk that much
I can never seem to fit in a word

Youd tell me of all your endeavors
And Id listen so tentatively
But when thoughts of me arise
To you, I am only what you see

A wallflower left all too forgotten
Though I never had a chance to say
But if walls could talk, theyd never stop
It can be said we are luckier this way

But if you happen to take me down
From the wall upon which I reside
And ponder over my petals, my leaves
Will you finally keep me by your side?
