Lyrics Edit

[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, yeah
Wondering if I can sneak out the back
Nobody's even looking at me in my eyes
And then you take my hand, finish my drink
Say, "Shall we dance?" (hell yeah)
Y'know I love ya, did I ever tell you?
You make it better like that

[Pre-Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
Don't think I fit in at this party
Everyone's got so much to say (yeah)
I always feel like I'm nobody
Who wants to fit in, anyway?

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
'Cause I don't care,
When I'm with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear
And you making me feel that maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights
When I'm with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
'Cause I don't care,
As long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you 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

[Verse 2: Justin Bieber]
We at a party we don't wanna be at
Trying to talk but we can't hear ourselves
Read your lips I'd rather kiss 'em 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 kind of crazy 'cause I really don't mind
When you make it better like that

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Bieber]
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, mhm
But now I think that we should stay

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber]
'Cause I don't care,
When I'm with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear
And you making me feel that maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights, when I'm with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
'Cause I don't care,
As long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you 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)

[Bridge: Justin Bieber & Ed Sheeran]
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: Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber]
'Cause I don't care (don't care)
When I'm with my baby, yeah (oh yeah)
All the bad things disappear (disappear)
And you making me feel that maybe I am somebody (maybe I'm somebody)
I can deal with the bad nights (with the bad nights)
When I'm with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
'Cause I don't care, as long as you just hold me near (me near)
You can take me anywhere (anywhere, anywhere)
And you making me feel like I'm loved by somebody
(I'm loved by somebody, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I can deal with the bad nights
When I'm with my baby (ooh), yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
