Why do I cry?

Why, when I call he doesn't answer?
But, if he calls I can't help but answer.
Why do I cry?
Why do I care so much?
Why do I expect so much when he does so little?
Why does my heart hurt for someone who doesn't feel?
Why do I cry?
Why do I care so much?
Why is it, that he can make me feel so horrible, when I've done nothing wrong?
But even when he knows he's wrong, I act like nothings happened.
Why do I cry?
Why do I care so much?
Why do I continuously think about him when I know he's not thinking about me?
Why do I cry?
Why do I care so much?
