Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Why did you leave me here to burn?
I'm way too young to be this hurt
I feel doomed in hotel rooms
Staring straight up at the wall
Counting wounds and I am trying to numb them all

[Pre-Chorus]
Do you care, do you care?
Why don't you care?
I gave you all of me
My blood, my sweat, my heart, and my tears
Why don't you care, why don't you care?
I was there, I was there, when no one was
Now you're gone and I'm here

[Chorus]
(I have questions for you)
Number one, tell me who you think you are
You got some nerve trying to tear my faith apart
(I have questions for you)
Number two, why would you try and play me for a fool?
I should have never ever ever trusted you
(I have questions)
Number three, why weren't you, who you swore that you would be?
I have questions, I got questions haunting me

I have questions for you
I have questions, I have questions
I have questions for you

[Verse 2]
My, my name was safest in your mouth
And why'd you have to go, and spit it out?
Oh, your voice was the most familiar sound
But it sounds so dangerous to me now

[Chorus]
(I have questions for you)
Number one, tell me who you think you are
You got some nerve trying to tear my faith apart
(I have questions for you)
Number two, why would you try and play me for a fool?
I should have never, ever, ever trusted you
(I have questions for you)
(I have questions for you)
I have questions (I have questions for you)
(I have questions for you)

[Bridge]
Do you care, do you care?
Why don't you care?
I gave you all of me
My blood, my sweat, my heart, and my tears
Why don't you care, why don't you care?
I was there, I was there, when no one was
Now you're gone and I'm here

[Chorus]
I have questions for you (oh)
I have questions for you (oh)
I have questions for you (I have questions)
I have questions for you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Outro]
I have questions for you (foul play, no, foul play, no)
I have questions for you
I have questions for you
[Whispers though Outro]
How do I fix it? Can we talk? Can we communicate?
Is it my fault? Is it my fault? Damn. It's me
I have questions
