"I Don't Care Anymore" as written by and Phil Collins....
Well you can tell everyone I'm a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place
I don't care anymore
You can tell everybody 'bout the state I'm in
You won't catch me crying 'cause I just can't win
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore

I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play

'Cause I've been talking to the people that you call your friends
And it seems to me there's a means to and end
They don't care anymore
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind
I don't care anymore, I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
We never played by the same rules anyway

I won't be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore

Well, I don't care now what you say
'Cause every day I'm feeling fine with myself
And I don't care now what you say
Hey, I'll do alright by myself
'Cause I know

'Cause I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face 'cause you held all the cards
I don't care anymore

And I really ain't bothered what you think of me
'Cause all I want of you is just a let me be
I don't care anymore, d'you hear? I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway

I won't be there no more
So get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore
D'you hear? I don't care anymore
I don't care no more
You listening? I don't care no more
No more!

You know I don't care anymore!
Don't care no more! No more, no more, no more
Don't care, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more

    General CommentThat-or a case of no matter what- being in a relationship where one is always made to be the bad guy or made to feel bad for whatever reason they are manipulated and can't win for losing.The scapegoat finally say enough is enough. I don't care anymore... ;)

    My InterpretationIt might just be my relating my own life situations to this song, but PERSONALLY, my analysis of the lyrics are, this song tells the story of him breaking up with someone. Perhaps a decision he didn't want to make, but had to, and she refused to be civil about it, spending all her time to make him feel bad, and this song is the culmination of his grown animosity, and practically saying "you know, I used to feel bad for breaking up with you, but you've turned into something I can't care anymore. Get out of my life"

    General CommentOne of the ultimate anthems to moving beyond an unhealthy relationship and a bad partner and breaking free emotionally. In some ways, it's like the "male" analog to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive." Lots of power and self-confidence in the second half in particular, along with some directed anger. A classic.

    General CommentMy God, this song just makes so much sense. It's one of those songs that everybody can relate to. Everybody knows somebody who's terrible for their mental and emotional health.
