This song is about a guy who is in love with a beautiful girl that doesn't know he exists and how he can't wait for the day that her looks are gone so she can feel what it's like to be overlooked.

UNSEEN TRUTH EVERY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE THERE’S A TIGHTNESS IN MY CHEST I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERY NIGHT AND I NEVER GET NO REST SINCE THE FIRST TIME THAT WE MET I’VE WANTED YOU SO BAD YOU HARDLY EVEN NOTICE ME AND IT MAKES ME FEEL SO SAD I AIN’T NEVER BEEN NO LOVER BOY BUT I NEVER FELT LIKE THIS I’D WALK BAREFOOT OVER BROKEN GLASS BABY JUST TO GET ONE KISS IF I COULD SPEND A NIGHT WITH YOU, I KNOW I’D MAKE YOU SEE THE PRINCE WITHIN THIS OUTER SKIN OF MEDIOCRITY SOME TIMES YOU SEEM TO LOOK MY WAY BUT YOU DON’T SEE AS IF I WAS INVISIBLE WHY DON’T YOU NOTICE ME? IT’S LIKE SOME KIND OF PUNISHMENT TO LOOK BUT NEVER TOUCH IF ONLY YOU COULD REALIZE MY LOVE COULD MEAN SO MUCH I TRY SO HARD TO TALK TO YOU BUT YOU DON’T SEEM TO CARE AND WHEN YOU LOOK RIGHT THROUGH ME, IT’S TOO MUCH FOR ME TO BARE IT’S SUCH A SHAME YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE MAN I REALLY AM TOO CAUGHT UP IN YOUR PERFECT WORLD TO EVEN GIVE A DAMN IT’S TRUE THAT ON THE OUTSIDE I’M JUST AN AVERAGE GUY BUT INSIDE I’M SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT - IF YOU’D JUST GIVE ME A TRY AND IT MAKES ME SAD TO KNOW THAT YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE TREASURE THAT IS HIDDEN JUST BENEATH THE SHALLOW SAND SOME TIMES YOU SEEM TO LOOK MY WAY BUT YOU DON’T SEE AS IF I WAS INVISIBLE WHY DON’T YOU NOTICE ME?
