Why Should I Care?


Diana Krall Why Should I Care
Uploaded by live-jazz

"Why Should I Care"

Was there something more I could have done?

Or was I not meant to be the one?

Where's the life I thought we would share?

And should I care?

And will someone else get more of you?

Will she go to sleep more sure of you?

Will she wake up knowing you're still there?

And why should I care?

There's always one to turn and walk away

And one who just wants to stay

But who said that love is always fair?

And why should I care?

Should I leave you alone here in the dark?

Holding my broken heart

While a promise still hangs in the air

Why should I care?

Beautiful poem. Even when we feel we should not care, we do. We must learn to love ourselves through the pain of rejection; it can be hurtful, I know. But in time, we grow from any hurt indured. As a butterfly, surely you know it was not an easy task to come out of that cacoon. Blessings, Butterfly!
