About I Don't Care Anymore

"I Don't Care Anymore" is a song written, performed, and produced by English drummer Phil Collins (with co-production by Hugh Padgham). It is the third single from Collins' second solo album, Hello, I Must Be Going! (1982). It is one of the artist's most recognisable signature songs, and a favourite of many Collins fans worldwide. This song is considered 'dark' in tone, and is comparable to Collins' earlier hit single "In the Air Tonight", as both contain powerful drum kit along with simplistic synthesizers and guitar riffs, coupled with angry lyrics directed at Collins' failed first marriage. The drums also illustrate the gated reverb recording technique that defined Collins' sound throughout the 1980s. During "I Don't Care Anymore", the drum track switches several times between "standard" studio sound and a gated reverb overlay. The song earned Collins his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance in 1984, but lost to Michael Jackson's "Beat It".

Well you can tell everyone I'm a down disgrace 
Drag my name all over the place 
I don't care anymore
You can tell everybody 'bout the state I'm in 
You won't catch me crying 'cause I just can't win
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore 

I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play 

'Cause I've been talking to the people that you call your friends 
And it seems to me there's a means to and end
They don't care anymore
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time 
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind 
I don't care anymore, I don't care no more 

I don't care what you say 
We never played by the same rules anyway

I won't be there anymore 
Get out of my way 
Let me by 
I got better things to do with my time 
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore 
I don't care anymore, I don't care anymore 

Well, I don't care now what you say 
'Cause every day I'm feeling fine with myself 
And I don't care now what you say 
Hey, I'll do alright by myself 
'Cause I know

'Cause I remember all the times I tried so hard 
And you laughed in my face 'cause you held all the cards
I don't care anymore
 
And I really ain't bothered what you think of me 
'Cause all I want of you is just a let me be
I don't care anymore, d'you hear? I don't care no more 

I don't care what you say 
I never did believe you much anyway

I won't be there no more 
So get out of my way
Let me by 
I got better things to do with my time 
I don't care anymore 
D'you hear? I don't care anymore 
I don't care no more 
You listening? I don't care no more 
No more! 

You know I don't care anymore!
Don't care no more! No more, no more, no more
Don't care, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more
