All I Want to Know is Why

I was careless but who can blame me?
When something so certain
implodes with such grace
I suppose it just wasn’t meant to be

But if you could have called
or told me I was wasting my time
Then maybe I wouldn’t be so pissed
and craving so many cigarettes

But if you’re nearby
why don’t you pick me up?
I promise I’ll try
to talk about something interesting
You don’t need to lie
I’ve heard every excuse before
All I want is to know why...

I heard all the stories from your best friend
I must admit they scared me
But I was willing to let it go but
somehow you proved her right

But if you could have made the effort
and been honest for once
I wouldn’t need to break
all my previous resolutions


The End
