As I lay here, completely still
I think about the way you treat me..
It's so unfair.
I give my all, but never see you care.
I pour out my heart.
I gave it to you,
Yet all you do is throw it back at me.

Tell me why do I care
About you, dear?
You're so cold inside
You are not here.
You are lost, we're done..
And I'm okay.
I don't need you to stay.

I still breathe; my lungs are still strong.
My eyes are fine.
I see better now,
There's no distraction.
I hope you find me some day,
And see that I am closer
To everything you tried to keep me from.

Tell me why do I care
About you, dear?
You're so cold inside
You are not here.
You are lost, we're done..
And I'm okay.
I don't need you to stay.

My mind is free to wander,
So is my soul; it's yours no longer.

Tell me why do I care
About you, dear?
You're so cold inside
You are not here.
You are lost, we're done..
And I'm okay.
I don't need you to stay.

"As I hide behind these books I read, while scribbling my poetry,
like art could save a wretch like me, with some ideal ideology that no one can hope to achieve.
And I am never real; it is just a sketch of me.
And everything I made is trite and cheap and a waste of paint, of tape, of time." - Bright Eyes
