If I left you, would you cry a lot?

Would you have even wondered where I’d gone?

And if I stumbled before I got too far

Would you accuse my will of being flawed?

My walk has turned into a crawl

I don’t know why you care at all

And if I loved you, then I broke your heart

Would you still care to hold me in your arms?

And if above you there are only stars

Where will your dreams be broadcast when I’m gone?

My start has turned into a stall

I don’t know why you care at all

I tend you query your position on this situation

'Cause it makes no sense to me

You’re wasting time, you’re wasting effort, and you’re wasting patience

This is all that’s left of me

Why do you have to be

So Goddamn lovely?

My rise has turned into a fall

And my problems overwhelm us all

You didn’t worry, you didn’t care

You stood by me through the fall

I don’t know why you care at all


I dont know why, I dont know why...
