(Anime Eyes, I've Got) The Bistro Blues

I stand here at attention, this silence, stifling,
Waiting for the action, my nerves, baffling
Waiting to serve the batches, tiring,  
Of cold and hot sandwiches, brain ruminating.  
  
I ache, 'cause I see you working there,  
Seeming too cool to have a care,  
Flipping out of you face, your lovely hair,  
We're both shy, but you've got this flair  
   
Oh, Anime Eyes, I've got the bistro blues,  
Seeing you through all the rosy hues,  
I wish I could squeeze you in a big hug,  
But it seems this anxiety hole, I've dug.  
   
I make the pretzels, and box the food,  
Suffocating in the silence, I'd talk to you if I could,  
But I clam up the moment I see you,  
Wanting to say much more than 'hi' to you.  
   
With eyes so big and dark,  
My heart sings like a lark  
Whenever you look at me,  
I'm takin' baby steps to get to know you, I hope you see?  
   
Oh, Anime Eyes, I've got the bistro blues,  
Seeing you through all the rosy hues,  
I wish I could squeeze you in a big hug,  
I'm crawlin' out of this anxiety hole, I've dug.  
   
On a raft in this sea of uncertainty,  
I know this with certainty,  
Though it hurts, trying to speak to you,  
I like you, I really, truly do.  
   
In your eyes, I see a determined flame,  
Letting this opportunity pass would be a shame,  
You're so kind and laid-back, why's this so hard?  
I'll try to tell you, but I'm far from a bard.  
   
Oh, Anime Eyes, I've got the bistro blues,  
Seeing you through all the rosy hues,  
I wish I could squeeze you in a big hug,  
Soon you won't see the anxiety hole I'd dug.  
   
Your mama's seen my blush,  
I got shy, and had to hush,  
Askin' who I'm tryin' to impress, how can I tell her it's you?
That'd be so awkward too.  
   
I wish I could look at you with love in my eyes,  
And see it shining back in your eyes,  
I wish I could just hug you without a word,  
And know the embrace speaks a billion words.  
   
Oh, Anime Eyes, I've got the bistro blues,  
Seeing you through all the rosy hues,  
I wish I could squeeze you in a big hug,  
I'm making an effort to hide the hole I'd dug.  
   
I'm making an effort to wave when I see you,  
I'm making an effort to speak to you,  
Ask you how your day's been,  
Maybe someday we'll look back and remember when.  
   
If all goes well, we will look back  
And laugh at our (mainly mine) confidence lack,  
And we'll see each other's true beings,  
Wether we're friends or there's stronger feelings.  
   
Oh, Anime Eyes, I've got the bistro blues,  
Seeing you through all the rosy hues,  
I wish I could squeeze you in a big hug,  
I'm determined to erase this hole I'd dug.  
   
   
I'm going to build a mountain where this anxiety hole is....

My attempt to write a song, not the best I know, but it's from the heart. I may post a video (just audio) of me singing this at some point in the near future. (Currently learning mandolin which I hope to play to this, and recuperating my throat from a head cold last week.)
