"I Don't Care (feat. Adam Gontier) (Original Version)" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Eicca Toppinen and Max Martin....
I try to make it through my life, in my way, there's you
I try to make it through these lies, and that's all I do

Just don't deny it,
Don't try to fight this, and deal with it
And that's just part of it

If you were dead or still alive
I don't care, I don't care
Just go and leave this all behind
Cause I swear (I swear) I don't care

I try to make you see my side
I always try to stay in line
But your eyes see right through
That's all they do

I'm getting buried in this place
I got no room, your in my face
Don't say anything just go away

If you were dead or still alive
I don't care, I don't care
Just go and leave this all behind
Cause I swear (I swear) I don't care

Love changing everything, you won't be left for me
Love changing everything, you won't be left for me

If you were dead or still alive
I don't care, I don't care
Just go and leave this all behind
'Cause I swear (I swear) I don't care

If you were dead or still alive
I don't care (I don't care) I don't care (I don't care)
Just go and leave this all behind
I don't care (I swear) I don't care
At all

    MemoryTo me, this song reminds me about my mother.
    she never appreciated me, she never cared about me.
    and so one day, i just left.
    the cops found me about 3 hours later and sent me to live with my cousins.

    General CommentThis song i totally relate to. My ex boyfriend was constantly breaking me down, calling me names and telling me to kill myself, and blaming me for everything. After all i did for him, that he thinks I didnt, I have come to realize that i just dont care anymore.

    My InterpretationThis song to me is that the singer has inner demons he cannot shake off or has another personality that has damaged his life. (I see it that why because that is what has happened to me.) the dead or still alive part means that he/i don't care if that personality sticks around because he's/i'm doing everything in their power to fight through it, and deals with the fact that he might not be able to change, but that doesn't stop him from trying...

    thats my take on it

    General CommentProbably my favourite song with lyrics from Worlds Collide (my favourite being Grace).
    I think this song is about having your trust abused so badly by somebody that you just don't care any more, and even if you try to reason with them, they won't accept responsibility and expect you to "just deal with it"

    General CommentThe narrator just gets fed up with someone, and tried so hard to earn their love & respect, and all the person did was treat them like shit right back. He gives up in frustration.

    For the record, Adam Gontier is amazing..

    General CommentI can so relate to this song.

    'I try to make you see my side'

    It sounds like he's trying to get someone to see from his point of view. The person treats him like shit without even knowing him for who he is on the inside. In the end he gives up and tells them he doesn't care if they're alive or dead; he's had enough of their shit.
    It might not be exactly what the song is about, but I see it like that because I'm having a similar problem with someone.

    Amazing song. (:

    General Commenthmm...so they changed the song a little for the music video...the lyrics changed a little too. that's awkward.

    I guess the US album version has the revised version of this song. :/
