lyrics

Hard to picture you with me
When past regrets are all I see
But if I don’t know hate then I won’t know disgust
And if I can’t find peace then I won’t know love

But If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I'd be taking my place in the crowd
If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I might bury your face too far down
And close the door on affection
Forget you for my protection
If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I'd be taking my place in the crowd

Make a list of your episodes
All the casual encounters that you’ve had
Skin on skin I don’t want to know
It’ll hit me like a bullet in the back
But if I don’t know hate then I won’t know disgust
And if I can’t find peace then I won’t know love

But If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I'd be taking my place in the crowd
If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I might bury your face too far down
And close the door on affection
Forget you for my protection
If I didn't care, then I wouldn't stay
I'd be taking my place in the crowd

I had a dream I was broken down at your place
Your hands were clean, so you wiped the dirt from my face

But if I didn’t care
