You needed it when I was away,
And no matter what I say,
You'll never forget when I wasn't there,
So why should I care,
I'm young but I know that I'm aroused

You know that I care,
You should have been there,
You know that I care,
You should have been there

It doesn't matter where I have gone,
I just can't afford to,
Pay for all the mistakes that you have made,
It's about time I was paid
I'm young but I know that I'm aroused

You know that I care,
You should have been there
You know that I care,
You should have been there

You know that I care,
You should have been there
You know that I care,
You should have been there

You know that I care,
You should have been there
You know that I care,
You should have been there

    It's pretty much a song about how people split apart, then come back together but by then someone is so consumed about how things were when the other was gone that they wind up splitting again.
