Just to Be (In Love)

Just to Be (A Jerk)

When I first saw you I was with the guys
And I had to make a plan
To impress you which would impress them
Just to be a man

Then I found myself going out of my way
I thought to entice
But way deep down I did it all
Just to be nice

Something happened that changed my life
From beginning to the end
I knew I was trying to be with you
Just to be a friend

Time flew fast as our friendship grew
And away went my fear
I spent endless hours thinking up times
Just to be near

One dreary day I was by myself
And it hit me like a shove
I smiled big ‘cause I was happy
Just to be in Love

We named every star and numbered the trees
We even set the sun
I took you away to unknown globes
Just to be fun

I’m thinking back to the times we had
And my face shows a smirk
‘Cause I’m getting out and I say good-bye
Just to be a jerk
