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'll 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?

    This song pretty much explains itself. It is about being lonely and how while people are always easily talking about you and putting you down, it seems so difficult for them to appreciate you and respect you.

    Everyone goes through the troubling times of being hurt by another person. It seems as if everyone just wants to put you down to make themselves feel better when in the long run it hurts both parties. It speaks to me saying that even though we go through all these hard times there is a good thing waiting if we fight hard enough for it.

    Someone who cares describes me. I mean it probably describes a lot of people, but i'm 14, and ever since my dad left me when i was two, i have felt as if no one cares about me. It's easy to put on a show, and tell people your ok, while inside your bleeding, and you feel like ur nothing, and never will be anything... Every time i hear this song, it reminds me of what hs happened to me many times over.
