Why Should I Care

Was there something more I could have done?
Or was I not meant to be the one?
Where’s the life I thought we would share?
And should I care?

And will someone else get more of you?
Will she go to sleep more sure of you?
Will she wake up knowing you’re still there?
And why should I care?

There’s always one to turn and walk away
And one who just wants to stay
But who said that love is always fair?
And why should I care?

Should I leave you alone here in the dark?
Holding my broken heart
While a promise still hangs in the air
Why should I care?

The Witness

“[with] All these promises that we make and we break.
Why is it, do you think, that people get married ?”

“Because we need a witness to our lives ???”

There’s a billion people on the planet.
I mean, what does any one life really mean?

But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything -
the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things…
All of it. All the time, every day.

You’re saying, “Your life will not go unnoticed, because I will notice it.”
“Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness.”

“I do believe… in the rights of victims. I do believe… that they deserve
recompense. No matter how significant or insignificant it may be… in
comparison to the loss suffered. I’ve suffered such a loss. And like some of you
here… I’ve spent those sleepless nights… trying desperately to… squelch
down that bilish instinct for revenge. And I have wondered… If this pain
will… ever abate. I’ve learnt… that time does not heal the wound. It will
though, in its most… merciful way… blunt the edge… ever so slightly.”

“The best thing you can do is find a person
who loves you for exactly what you are.

Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty,
handsome, what have you,

the right person is still gonna
think the sun shines out of your ass.

That’s the kind of person
that’s worth sticking with.”
