lyrics

I don’t know why I even asked.
I already knew what the answer would be.
And now I stand here all aghast,
knowing for sure that you don’t want me.

But it’s no surprise,
I’m just looking for a rhyme,
I’m looking for a reason.
And I don’t know why,
I’m just asking for a rhyme,
I’m asking for a reason.

You’re like a shadow on splintered glass;
there’s too many cracks that you fall in between.
We will pretend that you’ve got some class.
The truth is we both know that you’ve been mean.

And it’s no surprise,
I’m just looking for a rhyme,
I’m looking for a reason.
And I don’t know why,
I’m just asking for a rhyme,
I’m asking for a reason.

And every time you look at me I’m wondering what do you see.
A picture of the girl you always thought I could be?
And every time you call my name I always seem to come running,
but now I’m thinking this is just some terrible game…

I don’t know why I even asked.
I already knew what the answer would be.
