Sign Language (Feat. Wynter Gordon)

He was an average teen, he partied often and he sagged his jeans
Sat in the very back of the class so he could nap and dream
And fantasize about the girl he was obsessed with
The one who stole his heart and always kept it
'Cause ever since the seventh grade, she was always standin' in his center stage
But every time he tried to talk to her, she would just step away
And though she never spoke to him, it didn't matter
'Cause Billy never liked the chit-chatter
So what if a little passive? To him she was attractive
He could sense a massive personality perfectly by the way she acted
Plus she wrote poems for the paper every month
It was the lines on the page that had him fallin' in love
But he never told his friends, they would say that he was crazy
So no one ever found out that Billy liked Amy
He just gracefully endured, being blatantly ignored
But sooner or later, Billy wouldn't take it anymore

So he's takin' his chances, tired of all the wasted advances
Sick and tired of never havin' dates for the dances
If he wanted Amy he needed to step it up
So one day he stopped her by her locker to confess his love
And he told her that she was beautiful and lit up his sky
Like, "Columbus with a compass would get lost in your eyes"
But she didn't respond, just gave him a weird look
She tried to give him a shrug but she was carryin' books
But that was all that it took, he put himself out there and he got crushed
So he had to run away before the tears rushed
A whole week, he locked himself in his apartment
'Cause he didn't have the strength to face the world so broken-hearted
After seven days of darkness, got a letter in the mail
But before he even looked at it, he let that ship sail
He was too concerned with all the sadness in his life
So instead of a letter opener he grabbed a kitchen knife

She was far from your average teen, the quiet type who never had a scene
Studied often and wrote poems for the school magazine
She had a little secret and she always kept it
There was a boy that she was obsessed with
So when she wrote a poem for the school paper every month
Every line on the page was dedicated to her crush
But she never told her friends, they would say that it was silly
So no one ever found out that Amy liked Billy
'Till the day that Billy stopped her by her locker during school
But she couldn't understand him and responded like a fool
And gave him a weird look
She tried doin' sign language, but she couldn't 'cause she was carryin' all her books
See, even though Amy was equally obsessed
She was too embarrassed to tell him that she was born deaf
Avoided him at school, but to make her love known
She would leave him little signs through the lines of her poems
So she sent one to his home, after seven days passed
'Cause it seemed like Billy wasn't showin' up to class
So she's going home confused, trapped in the worst mood
Flippin' on the TV to a tragic story on the news
It was the picture of your average teen, all it said was this:
"LOCAL TEEN SUICIDAL WITH A KNIFE TO HIS WRIST"
At the scene where he died was a letter never read
From a girl named Amy and it said:

I wanna show you that I care
But I don't have the nerve
I wanna say I love you
But I can't find the words
I wish that you could know how I
Really felt all of this time
But no matter what I do
You can't see the signs
