Silent Storm

A screaming silence inside my mind
You held nothing back and you gave me no thought
I look back on all the opinions that I kept inside
I never spoke them but I never forgot.

So many things you say to me
And don't care what I feel inside
I'd stay quiet out of courtesy
But now I've got nothing to hide.

You say that I've hurt you
But you don't know the half
You say it was just a joke
Well go ahead and laugh.

Who cares? You don't need me
(just go ahead and leave all this behind)
It's not like you want me
(let all the memories drift from your mind)
Who cares? You don't need me
(just go ahead and move on)
It's not like you want me
(but be a little more smart next time and I'll be a little more strong)

How can you give me empty apologies
When you don't know what you're sorry for
You don't even know what's wrong with me
But you won't be in doubt anymore.

You say that you'll do anything
Well just leave me alone
Don't try and erase everything
When it's already gone.

You beg me not to hate you
But you don't know the half
You say it was all just a joke
Then go ahead and laugh.

Who cares? You don't need me
(just go ahead and leave all this behind)
You don't even believe me
(let all the memories drift from your mind)
Who cares? You don't need me
(just go ahead and move on)
You don't even believe me
(but be more smart next time and I'll be a little more strong)

Another person will come after me
You're not as alone as you claim to be
I don't need you, you don't need me.
You don't even care.

Who cares? I don't need you
(I'll move forward but won't forget this time)
I don't believe you
(you'll still live in the back of my mind)
Who cares? I don't need you
(just go ahead and move on)
I don't believe you
(but be more smart next time and I'll be a little more strong)

a/n: One of my close friends was very open about her opinions, so much it was
insensitive. She was always sad about something so I kept my opinions to
myself because I didn't want to make her problems any worse. Well, I told her
a tiny fraction of how I felt... she pretends to care, but I know she doesn't.
She tells me the things she said were "just a joke," well I don't hear anyone
laughing. She says I was one of her best friends... yeah, right.
