This song jumped out at me when I heard it because of her tone, the progressions and, most importantly, the simple lyrical concept.
I had a relationship a while back and immediately, intensely connected with this person. We have the exact same sense of humor – which, if you know me, is not always easy to just pick up and run with.
We were both dealing with huge issues at the time. He was dealing with some harrowing coming out issues (which he was mostly quiet about, as is his nature) and I was coming out of a 6-year relationship that ended very abruptly and the split turned me into a bit of a disaster. Inevitably, we’d fight about whatever. We were living in two different worlds but knew we loved each other. But we fought, like, a LOT.
I’d of course talk to my friends all the time about it. Whether I was blaming him or me or life or whatever, I knew people were getting tired of hearing it. You can’t give people relationship advice that they don’t want.
“Nobody Cares” by LÉON hits this on the head. When I heard it for the first time, I knew what she meant when she said “nobody cares about us. Guess you don’t know that I still do.” We get away from things when we choose to talk to other people instead of each other.
Anyway, I’m glad to say this person is one of my very best friends in the world and I don’t know what I would do without him. We make good friends because we get each other. I’ve met very few people who get my inner workings and I’m thankful every day for those who do.
