Were you really even surprised,
In the very least bit?
When you found she lied awake all night?
When you heard her suffer in the dark?
Didn’t you care?

Didn’t you already know,
The horrible things she did to herself?
When she was all alone?
When you weren’t around?
Didn’t you care?

Wouldn’t you have helped,
Helped or cared for her?
When she opened herself to you?
When she told you everything?
Didn’t you care?

Would you still have ignored,
Ignored and left her then?
If you didn’t see it coming?
Before her life was taken?
Didn’t you care?

Do you wish you could go,
Go back and do it differently?
Tell her she didn’t have to hurt?
Tell her you still loved her?
Didn’t you care?
