Are you aware of what
You make me feel, baby
Right now I feel invisible to you
Like I'm not real
Didn't you feel me lock
My arms around you
Why'd you turn away?
Here's what I have to say

I was left to cry there,
Waiting outside there
Burning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
You, you need to listen
I'm starting to trip, I'm losing my grip
And I'm in this thing alone

Am I just some chick
You place beside you
To take somebody's place
When you turn around
Can you recognize my face
You used to love me,
You used to hug me
But that wasn't the case
Everything wasn't okay

I was left to cry there,
Waiting outside there
Burning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
You, you need to listen
I'm starting to trip, I'm losing my grip
And I'm in this thing alone

Crying out loud
Crying out loud

Open your eyes
Open up wide
Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care
We're not going anywhere

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care
We're not going anywhere

    This song's about how she's sick of how a certain guy is treating her like crap. So she's saying "Why should I care?" and moves on. I love it. It's a very angry song and very relatable. This is one of my favorite songs she sings. I miss the old Avril, though. But at least she's happy now.

    Why should i care
    Cos you weren't there whan i was scared
    I was so alone

    this makes me feel kinda liberated, i can really apply it to my life (you're not getting the details of this)
