I don't know why it took me so long to figure out
That things weren't going to change
I had high expectations
Now they have dwindled away
I get mad
It's the same thing everyday
So glad that I finally learned
That things will just remain the same
Things will never change
I can paint all of the stars blue
Add sparkles and diamonds too
Yet you have your head down
You don't like blue
You don't care that it might mean something to me
If you cared
Then you want me to look at all of the stars you have painted
It's not fair
I'm tired of caring that you don't care
I'm tired of wanting you to care
So I've decided to not care anymore
That you don't care
You can live your life without you looking at my stars
I can shine without you
Even though it hurts like hell, because I love you the most
Even though I feel lonely
I will live without you being 'there'
Even though I have your love
I won't waste my time silently
Wanting something from you that I can't have
I will do it for me
Do it for them
I will let that be enough
