RaeLynn – Careless lyrics

A relationship is a 50/50 thing
I don't wanna be the girl always giving in to you
Same old same, it's a daily train
Waiting on your ring, it's just a losing game

I don't wanna pick up, but then I pick up
I don't wanna give up, should I give up?
It's just a chase, a Tom & Jerry race
Will it, will it ever, ever change?

I bet if I turned this heart off, baby, it would turn you on
I bet if I blocked you, you'd be blowing up my best friend's phone
I bet you'd be on your knees, on that floor
If I said "get lost," if I slammed that door
Maybe if I cared less, maybe if I care less
You would care a little more

If I had a hand that didn't want a ring
You wouldn't be cool with a five-month fling, yeah
What we have is just a rush, yeah
Just a touch but not enough

I let my heart out and then you wigged out
I gave my all to you, but if I said "see ya"
Just like that, would you be back?
All looking sad and trying to last

I bet if I turned this heart off, baby, it would turn you on
I bet if I blocked you, you'd be blowing up my best friend's phone
I bet you'd be on your knees, on that floor
If I said "get lost," if I slammed that door
Maybe if I cared less, maybe if I care less
You would care a little more

Whoa, a little more

Maybe I should care less and be careless
Maybe I should care less and be careless
Maybe I should care less and be careless

I bet if I turned this heart off, baby, it would turn you on
I bet if I blocked you, you'd be blowing up my best friend's phone, yeah
I bet you'd be on your knees, on that floor
If I said "get lost," if I slammed that door
Maybe if I cared less, maybe if I care less
You would care a little more

Whoa, a little more
Yeah, yeah

    Giving it your all. Doing everything right. Getting nothing in return. This is the situation that many people find themselves in, and one that Raelynn chose to express in her song Careless. This is a very catchy song, and one that has a very deep meaning. Thinking that maybe if you distance yourself from the person you love the most that maybe they will finally show that they care about you. Thinking that they would go nuts and pay attention if you stopped contacting them, but don't give you a second thought otherwise. Realizing that you have put your heart into something that your partner is putting no effort into. This is a sad situation, but one that many of us find ourselves in. I personally have experienced this. Thank you Raelynn for writing a song like this.
