I Want Them To

[Verse 1]

I just dropped like the rain
I just wished for silence

You just said you'd change
You just forgot to tell me goodbye and

I tried to be sensible but I'm not invincible
I cried everytime you went off of the line

Out in public I'd play like I was invisible
At home I prayed that I could just get by

[Chorus]

Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
They told me I was wonderful
but then I grew up
and now I'm a fool to wonder if I'm still enough
The answer is always no
When can I just go?
Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
God, I want them to

[Verse 2]

We're not symmetrical
We were never fitting pieces

You never believed I was equal
You thought you could just leave

And I would never know the difference
You're here but you're not

Your mind went the distance
Your body stayed and fought

[Chorus]

Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
They told me I was wonderful
but then I grew up
and now I'm a fool to wonder if I'm still enough
The answer is always no
When can I just go?
Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
God, I want them to


[Bridge]

Just think about me
That's what you ought to do

They don't think about me
That's all I want from you

Just consider it
That's something you can do

Consider me because they wouldn't
That's all I need from you

[Chorus]

Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
They told me I was wonderful
but then I grew up
and now I'm a fool to wonder if I'm still enough
The answer is always no
When can I just go?
Just don't care
That's what I told myself to do
They don't care but God, I want them to
God, I want them to

[Outro]
I just dropped like the rain
I just wished for silence
