She’s Not Foolin’ Me Now

She said we’d be better off as friends
I said I wanted to be with her for life
She said she’d be fine with hanging out
But she wouldn’t agree to be my wife
As we’re out and about on a Friday night
And we’re talking over glasses of wine
I see it in those light blue eyes of hers
That she really wants to be mine

The friend zone isn’t fun
When you know they deeply care
They won’t risk taking a shot at
Something you both know is there
It’s in the way we hug good night
She’s made a secret solemn vow
She can fool all my family & friends
But she’s not foolin’ me now
She’s not foolin’ me now

I tell her about my dates with others
She has me meet men she says she likes
We’ve shared secrets from the past
as we’ve gone on some long hikes
Occasionally she’ll give me a look
Like I’m who she wants me to be
But I play it cool so she won’t see
That I’m on to her mystery

Yeah the friend zone isn’t fun
When you know they deeply care
They won’t risk taking a shot at
Something you both know is there
She has all those little tells
And I’m not sure how I’ll say how
I put all her clues together long ago
And she’s not foolin’ me now
Oh, she’s not foolin’ me now

Her friends haven’t said a word to me
About what I know that’s true
I’ll remain a gentleman to that girl
It’s really all that I can do

The friend zone isn’t fun
When you know they deeply care
They won’t risk taking a shot at
Something you both know is there
It’s in the way we hug good night
She’s made a secret solemn vow
She can fool all my family & friends
But she’s not foolin’ me now
She’s not foolin’ me now.

Lyric Notes: Sometimes you have to grow up to find out what something means. I know what it’s like to be in the “friendzone,” but I didn’t know of a word for it until I worked with Bonnie, Aaron, Justin and all the others in a Learning & Development project out at State Farm. They explained it to me and I immediately went to work on something. This is a newer one, but it’s still the same concept.
