The CD Cover for "I Don't Love You".

"I Don't Love You" is the third UK, Philippine and Australian single and sixth track from My Chemical Romance's third studio album, The Black Parade. It is the eleventh overall single from the band. It was released April 2, 2007, to the United Kingdom, following "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Famous Last Words", both of which were successful hits for the band. The band opted to release "Teenagers" as the third single in the U.S. instead of "I Don't Love You". The band released the single in Canada, on MuchMusic on March 19.

The song nabbed a positive 4/5 star review from music site Pitchfork Media, who claimed: "..it's the band's first proper power ballad and, well, they should definitely think about writing dozens more."

HistoryEdit

While the band was on their touring bus in 2005, they began to record using the bus's recording studio. "I Don't Love You" was one of the only songs to be used on the album from the tour bus recording sessions. The band can be seen playing an early version of the song from the tour bus sessions on the 2006 DVD Life on the Murder Scene at about 1:57:12 on the first DVD.

LyricsEdit

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.

When after all this time that you still owe,
You're still the 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,
It's 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.

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.
