Careless

“Careless”
written by Glen Phillips
You grew up alone in a big empty house
With a pool and a maid, mom and dad always out
And I always thought that you had it so good
Just imagine my surprise when they blew off the roof

And I couldn’t be more careless
You’re probably dead, and I’m just embarrassed

From out of a fire and into a flame
When you got too skinny you moved to LA
It’s just a regular city dropped from a great height
With the millions inside just along for the ride

And I couldn’t be more careless
You’re probably dead, and I’m just embarrassed
And I couldn’t be more careless
You’re probably dead, and I’m just…

Embarrassed to be the one who had it nice
With not a clue and too much advice

Well I let you live your life, you let me live mine
So whatever you need, it’s just fine, it’s just fine
You’ve been here before, you’ll probably be back again
‘Til the hair of that dog is too frayed at both ends

And I couldn’t be more careless
You’re probably dead, and I’m just embarrassed
And I couldn’t be more careless
You’re probably dead, and I’m just embarrassed
