Liner Notes: 

Written way too fast for a song skirmish #s081620, with the theme of "I don't care".

I think I could write a hundred songs on this topic !

Collabs welcome Smile

Lyrics: 

Was there a reason
Why I'm asking this now
I don't want to please and
I don't want to row

Our lives are long past
But I still want to know
Why there's nothing left here
From so long ago

I don't care
Seriously
I don't care
But curious thoughts
Get the better of me
But I don't know
And I don't care

We were often together
And laughed not for show
But the death of our passion
Is all we have now

I don't care
Seriously
I don't care
But curious thoughts
Get the better of me
But I don't know
And I don't care

Strings of my thoughts tie me into your hands still
I can't turn away from this mess of a life
Can we not try to find something more truthful
Is there not more in us before we let it die

I don't care
Seriously
I don't care
But curious thoughts
Get the better of me
But I don't know
And I don't care



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oooh I didn't think of the relationship break-up angle, good skirmish! I really like how the verses are reflections with a bit of longing while the singer keeps going back to the chorus.

nice! I love that mix of the 'i don't care, but actually.. well i care a little bit, sorta..', and sorting that all out being the 'struggle' in the song, well done!

Pondering lost loves is a very interesting topic and you're lyric really go me thinking about and wondering why i sometimes go there.

Yes nice. Wanting to know and caring are very different! But do thou protest too much? Good one!

Very nice! Obviously the singer cares quite a bit and is trying to make sense of it all. Great skirmishing!

I like the push and pull of I don't care/maybe I do/but I don't want to. Nice skirmishing indeed
