When You Pretend That You Don’t Care

Madison Bersuch

Don’t care, don’t care, the world is changing, maybe for the worse, but it doesn’t matter, I don’t care, I don’t care.

Don’t care, don’t care, our lives are passing us like trains on the opposite platforms, maybe it’s for the best, but it doesn’t matter, everything I want keeps on running away from me no matter how hard I try, I don’t care, I don’t care.

Leave now if you have a chance, leave now even if you don’t, I don’t care,

I wanted to know every single reason why you say the things you do, but I arrived at the conclusion that nothing I can offer can be enough,

So I don’t care, I don’t care.

I surprise people by just living how I am, I don’t care,

Fixing everything you broke in me for fun, I sit and smoke in the bright sun,

The parents in my neighbourhood are all running away from their children,

The children are running from each other, but nobody is going anwhere, I don’t care, I don’t care.

Life is too complicated if I try to control it, every time I feel like I can stand up on my own two feet, someone breaks my knees and heart, and I keep lying to others that everything will be alright if you don’t care, if you don’t care, it won’t matter, success or failure, it won’t matter, but it still weighs me down. I don’t care but it still matters sometimes. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
