Love was the thing that you want - ed,  That's why we an - swered love's call,
Now that you've got what you want - ed,  You don't seem to want it at all.
Care - less,  Now that you've got me lov - ing you,
You're Care - less, Care - less in ev - 'ry thing you do.
You break ap - point - ments and think you are smart.
If you're not care - ful,  You'll break my heart.
Care - less, Now that my bridg - es all are burned,
You're Care - less,  Care - less in things where I'm con - cerned.
Are you just Care - less as you seem to be,
Or do you just care - less for me?
