You wrote me a half-hearted love song,
But I guess that counts for something.
At least once upon a time you cared.
Too bad I'm in love with you now,
And my shaking hands are painting you a masterpiece worth ten of your songs.
But I guess that counts for something,
At least once upon a time you cared.

If your guitar and my paintbrush hit it off,
Do you think you'll be back to see me?
Surely that counts for something,
At least once upon a time you cared.
I think I can arrange that, if I try,
And you know that I will.
My hands will be bloody from effort,
And then tingling when you wipe them down.
Surely that counts for something,
At least once upon a time you cared.

The candles in my room smell nice and make me think of you.

    General Commentthis is about the ben/kate thing, from kate's point of view, for those of you who will understand what that means.

    for those of you who don't; it's about my old best friend and how she couldn't really easily let go of her exboyfriend. he never really liked her all that much, but he pretended to at least a little bit. he plays the guitar and kate is known for painting.

    thanks for the praise ^_^
