I couldn't understand why you left me
standing here
flickering out like a candle in the wind
the memories are laced with shame
there's no intention of working out the
problem that remains the same

Little children standing in the hall
Never taught them anything at all
if you were young again, would you do
it different?
or make your way just trying to
find the fiction in the fact of life?

Try to believe the words that you said to me are true
but something else assures me I'm not through
been denied so many times and so I'm told to
sit back and ignore the truth
enjoy the ride

Never took a hand with her to school
take a guess then tell us who's the fool
and you're not supposed to be my responsibility
one day you'll regain your pride
and realize life is too short not to try...

Does anybody care?
Does anybody...?
Does anybody care?

    General Commenti wonder why nobody added a comment to this great song...

    i think its about a guy who is in love with a girl he knew from school, but he wasnt able to tell her his feelings or take her hand. I think here is the connection to the second part with the young children, they were just too inexperienced (or they just didnt have a clue because they were never taught love?), and couldnt do it different. Now they meet again, and the answer is still no, he leaves him standing alone. But he still wants her, he was denied so many times, now he ignores the truth and hopes she will change her mind, realizing life is too short to try...

    General CommentYeah, I think too that the guy wonders if there was a possibility for a relationship that didn't come along because they were not honest to themselves or they didn't have the balls to just go ahead and try or whatever.
    But they're still alone.
