"Why Should I Care" as written by Tom Shapiro, Tony Martin and Sara Evans....
Oh
Why should I care if you found somebody new
And you look like you're in love
And why should I care if she looks a lot like me
And she's all you've ever dreamed of
I didn't care enough to keep you around
So tell me why should I care now

I was the one who let you go
I never told you that I love you
I couldn't promise anything
The way you needed me to
Oh, my heart was never really there
So why should I care
Why should I care?
I just do

So why should I care if
I ain't nothing in your eyes
What you felt for me is gone
Oh, and why would I feel that way
Now that it's too late
To change what I did wrong
Oh, I didn't care enough to keep you around
So baby, tell me, why should I care now

I was the one who let you go
I never told you that I love you
I couldn't promise anything
The way you needed me to
Oh, my heart was never really there
So why should I care
Why should I care?
Well, I just do

Oh, my heart was never really there
So why should I care
Why should I care
I just do
Yeah, I just do
Baby, I just do

    General CommentThis song speaks to me about how much a crush really matters to a girl. Even though they may not say something out loud, they still feel it inside and if they see their crush with another (especially a girl that looks just like her) it crushes their hearts.

    General Commenti dont think it's like that. i think it's more about an ex that really loved this girl and she didn't feel the same way back then, but once she saw him with another girl it made her want him back (jealousy maybe?). that's happened to me, i think its like a sense of rejection its like when someone who loved you strongly gets over you and moves on, even if you dont really care about them you still feel rejected.

    MemoryThis song is so beautiful.
    Really hits home because it's exactly the way I feel about my ex.
    I never told him how I felt and now that I lost him I miss him like crazy (even though it's been almost 7 years).
    Makes my cry every time.
