There have been some terrible love songs over the years, and even the pros aren't immune to writing/performing cheesy lyrics.

"And I'll be your cryin' shoulder / I'll be love's suicide / And I'll be better when I'm older / I'll be the greatest fan of your life."
—"I'll Be" (Edwin McCain)
"Would you tremble, if I touched your lips? / Would you laugh? / Oh, please, tell me this / Now, would you die for the one you loved? / Hold me in your arms tonight."
—"Hero" (Enrique Iglesias)
"I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy / I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need / I love you more with every breath truly, madly, deeply do."
—"Truly Madly Deeply" (Savage Garden)
Literally no one on earth is more embarrassing than someone with a crush — except someone who writes a song or poem about their crush.

It doesn't matter how many times the Plain White T's ask Delilah what's it like in New York City; the answer is still: "It's, like, really embarrassing."
As an avid teenage lyricist, every song I wrote about a crush was raw, emotional, and deeply humiliating.

Don't believe me? Here's the bridge from my magnum opus, "Conceited," which I wrote about my eighth-grade crush who rejected me (sorry to this man for the way I handled that situation):
🎵 I think you were my Advil when my pain was on the rise
I think you were my camo when I needed a disguise
I think you were my cover when I told all of my lies
But I think that I need glasses 'cause I see you with different eyes 🎶
Now it's your turn to share. Whether it's just a few words or a whole notebook of words, I want to revel in the raw, emotional, embarrassing AF words you wrote about a crush!
