LYRICS TO “I DON’T CARE” BY ED SHEERAN AND JUSTIN BIEBER

VERSE 1 (ED SHEERAN)

I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at
And I don’t ever wear a suit and tie
Wondering if I could sneak out the back
Nobody’s even looking me in my eyes
Then you take my hand
Finish my drink, say, “Shall we dance?” Hell, yeah
You know I love you, did I ever tell you?
You make it better like that

PRE- CHORUS

Don’t think I fit in at this party
Everyone’s got so much to say, yeah
I always feel like I’m nobody, hmm
Who wants to fit in anyway

CHORUS

‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear
And you’re making me feel like maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights, when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
‘Cause I don’t care, as long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you’re making me feel like I’m loved by somebody
I can deal with the bad nights, when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

 

VERSE 2 (JUSTIN BIEBER)

We at a party we don’t wanna be at
Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves
Close your lips, I’d rather kiss them right back
With all these people all around
I’m crippled with anxiety
But I’m told it’s where I’m supposed to be
You know what? It’s kinda crazy ’cause I really don’t mind
And you make it better like that.

PRE CHORUS

Don’t think we fit in at this party
Everyone’s got so much to say, oh yeah, yeah
When we walked in, I said I’m sorry, hmm
But now I think that we should stay

CHORUS

‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear                                                                                                          You’re making me feel like maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
‘Cause I don’t care as long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you’re making me feel like I’m loved by somebody
I can deal with the bad nights when I’m with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (no oh oh oh oh oh oh)

 

 

BRIDGE

I don’t like nobody but you
It’s like you’re the only one here
I don’t like nobody but you
Baby, I don’t care
I don’t like nobody but you
I hate everyone here
I don’t like nobody but you
Baby, yeah

CHORUS/OUTRO

When I’m with my baby, yeah (oh oh oh oh oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

THE REVIEW

These kind of heart-warming lyrics always get ladies tripping; dope song.!

Lyrically,  this masterpiece tune comes in two verses. Ed Sheeran took the first verse while Justin Bieber took the second verse. The two verses have the same stanzas (8). Although Edsheeran in his verse made use of the first person singular pronoun  “I” while Justin Bieber made use of the first person plural pronoun “We”. The chorus was sung thrice, the pre-chorus twice and the bridge once.

The lyrics are in array and they are interesting to the  ears. The song is meaningful as it talks about the artistes ability to fight insecurity and restlessness anytime they are with their loved ones.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Pre chorus- chorus- Verse 2- Pre chorus- chorus- Bridge- Chorus/Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1 “I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at, and I don’t even wear a suit and tie” Ed Sheeran makes us see his disinterest in a particular party because he feels out of place among the people at the party. This he sang in this line “I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at. And I don’t ever wear a suit and tie.” The artiste feels he is so invisible to others because of his appearance. Just when he is thinking of secretly leaving the party, a lady shows interest in him which eventually lightens his mood and makes him stay back at the party.

In the Pre-chorus “Don’t think I fit in at this party” the artiste feels uncomfortable at the party, perhaps he is not used to that kind of setting. He however wants to fit in.

In the chorus, “‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah,” we can tell that the artistes are more comfortable, calm and are able to overcome their lack of confidence whenever their girlfriends are with them. The artistes also make us know that their girlfriends make them feel important.

In the verse 2 “We at a party we don’t wanna be at. Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves,” we can tell that Justin Bieber also reluctantly went for the party. He is probably overwhelmed by the large crowd and this makes him uneasy. But he is able to loosen up because of his lady.

In the bridge “I don’t like nobody but you” the artistes make it clear that they are fond of their girlfriends and no one else.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “DON’T CARE” BY ED SHEERAN AND JUSTIN BIEBER MEAN

This is a love song whereby the artistes are able to deal with their restlessness and lack of confidence  whenever their girlfriends are around them.

COSUME

Costumely!

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. They used both indoor and outdoor scenes.

SOUND

Melodious. The major instruments used include the drums, paino, guitar and shakers. It has an hip hop beat. I love their vocals;  very appealing and interesting to the ears.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The question I keep asking is “Is this the real video for this dope song?” Cause if it is, I really expected more. Sorry, but this particular video is so uninteresting. They really should have gotten another video concept for this song! The fact that there are lots of animation, digital effects or computer effects does not qualify a video as an interesting one. This is an “Eyes rolling” video. Infact, Istill prefer the video for “Cross me” to this one. This is one video you may not be pushed to watch again.
