Do You Really Care?

by Andrea

Help me. I'm so confused.
Why do I hurt so badly? Why should I cry over you?
People say I'm too young to know what love is,
Well if this isn't love then what is?
To me love is just a big game for your heart.

You act like you care,
But do you really miss me when I'm not there?

You say you care
But your expressions are saying something opposite.

How do I really know that you really care?
How do I really know you really love me?
This doesn't make sense.
You say I act like I'm gonna play on you,
But should I really trust you?

You say you have all these opportunities to hit,
Why don't you take it?
You say you can't trust me anymore,
But you're the one that need not be trusted.
I never did anything for you to not trust me,

But you, on the other hand, are always the one to talk about how many girls you could be with. I don't talk about other guys. I'm loyal. That's just how I am.
You say you won't ever cheat on me.
How can I believe you?

Everybody tells me you're a player,
But I just ignore them because I love you.
I cannot explain how much I love you.
It just doesn't work when I try to express my feelings through words.
That's me.

When I say that I love you, I promise you,
It comes from the bottom of my heart.
I would never fake it.
That's just how I am. It's me.
If I love, then I show it in the best way I can.

How come, when I ask you if something is wrong, you say nothing,
When I know that nothing means something?
Why do you deny something's wrong?
If you have a problem with me then I want to know.
If you don't want to be with me I want to know,

Because its not worth loving someone who doesn't love you.
I really truly love you,
And would never play on you.
I know what it's like to be played on and it hurts.
I would never purposely do anything to hurt you.

If I ever broke up with you
It wouldn't be because I want to hurt you
It would be because I think you would be better off without me.
Sometimes I feel like I'm weighing you down.
I feel like I'm a problem for you.

If you want to be with other girls
Then I wouldn't want to ruin your chances.
But if you really care then let me know.
Let me know if you really care,
If you really miss me when I'm not there.

Let me know how you really feel.
I want to feel every bit of love you have to show, if you really care.
I feel like I've poured my heart out to you
And all you've done is listen with no response.
I want to know if you really care.

It hurts me so much when we fight.
I just want to end the whole thing and be by myself with no one.
Not even friends.
If I have no attachment to anyone then, in my mind, there will be no pain.
You have no idea what pain I've felt.

It makes me think everything would be better if I wasn't born.
If I weren't born I wouldn't have to feel the pain you put me through every time we fight.
If I weren't born I wouldn't be holding you back.
If I weren't born I wouldn't be here crying over you writing this.
If I weren't born everything would be better.

If I am wrong please tell me now. Do you really care?
Would it be better for you if I weren't here?
I don't know. I'm just curious.
I just want to know if someone really truly loves me.
Because if you're a fake then its not worth loving.
All I want you to know I that I love you even if you don't love me.
