Why Did You Make Me Care?

(From Song Reader)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Why did you make me care?
Make me want you there
Leave my arms both bare
And break my defenses

How did you make me feel
Like I couldn't feel
What I thought was real
Was one step from senseless?

Time falls asleep
While I'm trying
To keep from crying
Over all the lies
That you told
While I was just left behind
To drink down the dregs
Of you

Why did you make me need
What could only bleed
Just a heart you feed
With some pretty poison?

Where should I keep these tears
In a thousand years
Will they disappear
Or be an ocean?

Time falls asleep
While I'm trying
To keep from crying
Over all the lies
That you told
While I could have almost died
And drained down the dregs
Of you
