"Someone Who Cares" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Barry Stock....
Every street in this city
Is the same to me
Everyone's got a place to be
But there's no room for me

Am I to blame?
When the guilt and the shame hang over me
Like a dark cloud,
That chases you down in the pouring rain.

It's so hard to find someone
Who cares about you,
But it's easy enough to find someone
Who looks down on you

Why is it so hard to find someone
Who cares about you?
When it's easy enough to find someone
Who looks down on you

It's not what it seems
When you're not on the scene
There's a chill in the air
But there's people like me
That nobody sees so nobody cares

Why is it so hard to find someone
Who cares about you?
When it's easy enough to find someone
Who looks down on you

Why is it so hard to find someone
Who can keep it together
When you've come undone?
Why is it so hard to find someone
Who cares about you?

I swear this time it won't turn out
The same 'cause now I've got myself to blame
And you'll know where we end up
On the streets that is easy enough
To find someone who looks down on you

Why is it so hard to find someone
Who cares about you?
When it's easy enough to find someone
Who looks down on you

Why is it so hard to find someone
Who can keep it together
When you've come undone?
Why is it so hard to find someone
Who cares about you?

    MemoryThis song really makes me empathize with kids who are "uncool" or "unpopular" in school. So many freakin people look down on them because they act different or express themselves in a awkward way. How would I feel if that happened to me? I would, of course feel like dirt.

    These people who are looked down on are just like me and you. they feel the same emotions and feel the same pain. How would it feel to have nobody who cares about you? ... :(

    I truly hope this song causes many people to empathize with people like this instead of looking down on them. I know we could all afford to put more energy into loving and caring about people who are less fortunate then us. Nobody's perfect, but that's no excuse for not even trying.

    General CommentI love TDG for actually making emotional lyrics that stay blunt. I get sick of the subtle lyrics bands get overly showy with occasionally. I cannot say I have ever disliked a TDG song. They're just too honest.

    General Commentxtrole: wrong... I have lots of friends... and this song fits me... it can have something to do with love also.. I believe.. we all have our own opinions of song meanings...

    Why is it so hard to find someone who can keep it together?
    When you've come undone
    Why is it so hard to find someone who cares about you?

    My InterpretationI honestly think this song is about homeless people. im not saying the other interpretations are not correct it could very well have more than one meaning, but just think about the homeless when u hear this... the REAL homeless.

    those are the truest lyrics i have ever heard.
    i love how TDG can do that. they just bring it all out and dont hold back on what has to be said.
    this song is amazing.
    this song is purely amazing.

    General CommentCommon freaking sense "Its so hard to find someone who cares about you. But its easy enough to find someone who looks down on you.." People like me it IS hard to find someone who cares when I'm always getting stuck with the bad... Maybe I just have a hard time trying to keep them...

    This song is my theme song...

    Well.. I have that one person but... he is my ex kind of... and we don't talk much anymore but if something bad happens he will be there to keep me calm and keep me from doing something stupid..
    No matter what we have ever went through...
    <3

    General CommentThis song touches you!! I haven't listened to TDG in forever and my friend gave me album life starts now!!! I love it! And this song makes me think about the girl who care about so much!!! She is my ex and when she dumped me it seemed like she didn't care what she has done to me!! But I will never give up!! She was my first true!!!
