why do you expect me to be okay?
to be okay with your actions,
to be okay with what you say
i'm not

why do you expect me to forget?
the words you told me,
the words you said
i can't

why do you expect me not to care?
when you, so close to me,
when you, who knew my airs
i do

why do you expect us to be the same?
when I feel so out of place,
when I feel like a dog gone lame
i'm screaming

i just don't know what to do, anymore
