Careless

Careless

Careless you were, with my heart

Defenseless I was, with your words

Tormented we were, by the lies

Renewed we were, by the break.

Careless you were, with my tears

Hopeless I was, with your promises

Demented we were, by the thought

Redeemed we were, by the spirit.

Careless you were, with my body

Ruined I was, by your reputation

Defeated we were, by the saying

Rejoined we were, by the mere act.

Careless I was, with my own soul

Forgiven you were, by my sweetness

Beat down you were, by my resolve

Risen we were, by the vows.

Careless I was, by my own thoughts

Jealous you were, by the attention of others

Shaken we were, by the reminder

Rejected we were, by the morals of the world.
