She says I don't care
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
But her words are so strong
It's hard not to believe in them

I say I don't mind
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
But my words are so small
That it's hard to hang on to them

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what's important to me

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what matters to me

I could spend my whole life
Worrying about what's going to happen to me

I could waste my whole life
Thinking about just what it is my life means

She says I don't try
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
But she can read me like a book
She's read a hundred thousand times

I say it's all right
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
And I know in my heart
That I'm so very tired of pretending

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what's important to me

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what matters to me

I could spend my whole life
Worrying about what's going to happen to me

I could waste my whole life
Thinking about just what it is my life means

Sometimes what matters doesn't really matter at all
Sometimes it doesn't fit inside the big picture

Sometimes I need to be just where I am
Sometimes I need to know that right here is good enough

Sometimes I need to be just where I am
Sometimes I need to know that right here is good enough

She says I don't care
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
But her words are so strong
It's hard not to believe in them

I say I don't mind
But that's not the way it is
I know it's not
But my words are so small
It's hard to hang on to them

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what's important to me

I could spend my whole life
Thinking about what matters to me

I could spend my whole life
Worrying about what's going to happen to me

I could waste my whole life
Thinking about just what it is my life means

Sometimes what matters doesn't really matter at all
Sometimes it doesn't fit inside the big picture

Sometimes I need to be just where I am
Sometimes I need to know that right here is good enough

Sometimes I need to be just where I am
Sometimes I need to know that right here is good enough
