the night it was lazy
the streets were all crowded
I walked through the door at the top of the stairs
she looked like a girl from the renaissance paintings
with clouds in her eyes and leaves in her hair
I said without warning you know I’ve been waiting
she said I don't even know you
so I doubt that that's true
and I laughed at the wall
and she stared at the ceiling
you know I'm not so lonely
and now neither are you

and I don't really care
no I don't really mind
no I don't really care
as long as you're mine

she made me talk slowly and walk out of the room
I went down the hallway and out through the gate
and she followed me strangely into the moonlight
and she spoke words of anger as if I were late
I slipped past her guards and into her chamber
I said I'm all out of roses but my thorns aren't to fear
and she moved like the ocean away from my island
she said you know I'm not so lonely
so how come you’re still here

and I don't really care
no I don't really mind
I said I don't really care
as long as you're mine

she mocked my good nature and pulled on my coattails
she lifted me up and dropped me like a stone
she said you know love is just like riding a bicycle
and riding a bicycle is just another way to get thrown
I turned to her laughter and let her words linger
I slipped through her weak spot and watched as a cheer
turned from a victory into a massacre
I said if you’re not so lonely
Then how come you’re still here

Said I don't really care
No I don't really mind
No I don't really care as long as you're mine
The morning was lazy the streets were all empty
I looked out the window and winked at the sky
And she talked to me slowly even though she was sleeping
So I picked out the good things and let the rest die
She said without warning you know I was waiting
And I said that I told her that sometimes its true
And I laughed at the window and she threw her pillow
You know I'm not so lonely and now neither are you

And I don't really care
No I don't really mind
No I don't really care
As long as you're mine
No I don't really care
No I don’t really mind
No I don't really care
As long as you're mine
