Don’t Give a Damn

So simple it is
So soft a voice creeps through my mind
So strong are the words as they come from within

The mystifying drift you fear me with
A powerful sting to the bottom of my heart
No more will I let myself fear what is you

You fear what I fear
What everyone will say
What everyone will do

Is it worth the pain that I’ve held on to
It rips me in two
I know it can’t be
But I don’t give a damn

I’ve held to you so very long
A tear consumes my every thought
A broken keeps me back
A dying light…I cannot see

A moment pass
I hear your voice
So sweet to hear your words

You tell me what I’ve always known
But tell me something…something more
You don’t give a damn
