Amos Lee – Careless lyrics

You speak of love, but you ain't no lover
You were a friend, more like a brother

As the miles pass beneath me
The sounds made so sweetly came to an end
No man can deny her but now you're a liar
And you've no room left to defend

When I left I should have known better
Of the kind of man that you are, you'd have to get her

And I know you got a lot of pain that's born inside you
But instead of growing stronger, you let it divide you, oh

How could you be so careless?
How could you be so careless?

And the waves that are crashing, true lives of passion washin on your shore
Yes sir life has been costin true love's been lost and I can't get back anymore

And I'm sure that we both still both love her
And it's a shame we both lost her and in time lost eachother
But a trust has been broken and words have been spoken but you can mend
And no man can deny her and as you laid beside her I hope it felt good my friend

How could you be so careless?
How could you be so careless?
How could you be so careless with her heart?
