BackgroundEdit

"I Know You Care", was co-written by Goulding and Justin Parker. Lyrically the song speaks of "her trying to convince someone—us, her lover, herself—that they have something worth salvaging". In an interview with TIME she said that I Know You Care was about her dad where she hasn't seen him for a long, long time. And her parents divorced when she was really young. And she guessed it was my way of saying that Ellie wasn't bitter or angry anymore. She stated that she was just sad and just felt like something was missing."

The song for used for the soundtrack of the drama film Now Is Good.

The song was later released as a charity song for a "Song4Syria" - A minimum of 20p per sale of the charity single (‘I Know You Care’) was said to be donated to the Save the Children Fund, a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570). [1]

Critical receptionEdit

Hayley Avron of the NME critiqued that her artistry is briefly allowed to breathe, away from the desperate bombast of the suffocating backing tracks for I Know You Care.

LyricsEdit

Clinging to me
Like a last breath you would breathe
You were like home to me
I don't recognize the street

Please don't close your eyes
Don't know where to look without them
Outside the cars speed by
I never heard them until now

I know you care
I know it is always been there
But there's trouble ahead, I can feel it
You are just saving yourself when you hide it

Yeah, I know you care
I see it in the way you stare
As if there was trouble ahead and you knew it
I'll be saving myself from the ruin
And I know you care

I used to run down the stairs
To the door and I thought you were there
Do you shape through the comfort of us
Two lovers loved out of love

Oh, but I know you care
I know it is always been there
But there's trouble ahead, I can feel it
You are just saving yourself when you hide it

Yeah, I know you care
I see it in the way you stare
As if there was trouble ahead and you knew it
I'll be saving myself from the ruin

And know it wasn't always wrong
But I've never known a winter so cold
Now I don't warm my hands in your coat
But I still hope

'Cause this is how things ought to have been
And I know the worst of it wasn't all that it seemed
Why can't I dream
Why can't I dream

'Cause I know you care
And I know you care
I know you care
I know you care
I know it's always been there
