If I didn't care, more than words can say.
If I didn't care, would I feel this way?
If this isn't love, then mabe I'm wrong;
But why do I lie awake all night and dream all day long?
If I didn't care, would it be the same?
Would my every prayer begin and end with just your name?
And would I be sure that this is love beyond compare?
Would all this be true if I didn't care for you?
