Song Lyric Sunday – I don’t Love You by My Chemical Romance

This might seem like an odd choice for this week’s theme, but I promise there’s a story.  Also, I’m not sure how to take this band seriously.  I can’t tell if they take themselves seriously or if they overdo the lyrics and they’re performances on purpose.  I found myself watching the video tonight and laughing, but the lyrics aren’t all that funny.  I don’t know… Perhaps it’s a combination of the two.

Anyway, when I was thinking about which song to choose for the theme, I remembered all the times in my car with my kids and how when certain songs came on, we would sing them at the top of our lungs.  Also, Adelle went to a performing arts school, and she started actually performing the songs in the car, so me and the boys started to play along too.  I can only imagine what people must have thought when they happened to look in our car in passing.  But, I don’t even care how ridiculous it was.  It was so much fun and I will always have those amazing memories of when me and my kids sang our guts out to these songs.

This particular song makes me think of that moment you get to after a relationship has ended… that moment when you have finally moved on and you realize how ridiculous it all was.  It takes a while to get to that point, but it’s a good place to be after all the anger, heartache and loss.   Despite the lyrics, this song always manages to lift my mood.

I don’t Love You by My Chemical Romance
Written by My Chemical Romance
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Well, when you go
Don’t ever think I’ll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I’ll be off to find another way

And after all this time that you still owe
You’re still a good-for-nothing I don’t know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out
While you can

When you go
Would you even turn to say
“I don’t love you
Like I did
Yesterday”

Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading
So sick and tired of all the needless beating
But baby when they knock you
Down and out
Is where you oughta stay

And after all the blood that you still owe
Another dollar’s just another blow
So fix your eyes and get up
Better get up
While you can
Whoa, whoa

When you go
Would you even turn to say
“I don’t love you
Like I did
Yesterday”

Well come on, come on

When you go
Would you have the guts to say
“I don’t love you
Like I loved you
Yesterday”

I don’t love you
Like I loved you
Yesterday

I don’t love you
Like I loved you
Yesterday

  1. I love this song, as the black parade is my all time favorite album. I too have had some powerful moments related to this track – yes, relationships and stuff, but I had one moment when I was about to get married and this song did something strange to me. I was taking a long walk listening to the black parade through my headphones, and the sheer beauty of nature around me accompanied by this amazing ballad for some reason helped me to believe in God. I’d been an atheist for a few years, but for some reason this song made me feel very spiritual. I thought “maybe…just maybe…”

    • Wow, I was honestly sitting here thinking I was an idiot for posting this song today, and here you come along with this amazing, powerful story. Thank you so much for sharing it. I’m constantly amazed how music can be such a powerful source in our lives, even if we can’t explain it sometimes.
