She thinks I still care

Just because I asked a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I rang her number by mistake today
She thinks I still care

Just because I haunt the same old places
Where the memory of her lingers everywhere
Just because I’m not the happy guy I used to be
She thinks I still care

But if she’s happy thinking I still need her
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer
But how could she ever be so foolish?
Oh, where would she get such an idea?

Just because I asked a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I saw her then went all to pieces

She thinks I still care
She thinks I still care
