Is this a great song?

I call it "Why Even Try" for some things that don't go our way when we try to make the best out of them. Example: Trying to ask out a girl who you don't know is taken.

Why Even Try

To show that I like you
I kept my secret hidden
To me, and this is true
That telling you is forbidden
Without me telling you, can't you see the love too?
(Refrain)

I thought you were single
So I got you flowers
And I thought of you while writing a jingle
Thought you'd date me, and waited till the morning hours
(Refrain)

Refrain
Instead of asking you out
I asked if you were "alone"
Had to weed my way to your heart, while breathing through my snout
You said you weren't, now I'm in the friend zone

You're dating a boy attending Marlboro HS
Yet I'm still waiting
For a woman who's worth my time, nonetheless
Giving up on hope now, I'm contemplating
(Refrain)

Before you there was my best friend
Who probably has a line of boys in line
Waiting for her, yet she and I were at a dead end
Now I'm hoping that someone give me a sign
Of reassurance our love will mend
And all will be fine, everything will realign
(Refrain)
