  • Zero from Nowhere, NjJan, Lawrenceville, Georgia: It's just a chord progression, I bet there are at least 1000 other songs with the same progression. This is a great song with a great message. It's no "Imagine" but its still good and probably the best song Nickelback will ever write.
  • Kate from Willard, OhI lost my best friend, and this was his favorite song. If everyone cared, he would still be alive. Everytime I hear this song i remember how hapy he used to be..
  • Dave from Red Lion, PaI really love this song and the meaning of the song is something everyone in the whole world should take to to heart. Just think that if everyone would love each other and not hate one another and not resort to violence, the world would be a happier and a much better place. After reading the comment by Ridge, New Castle, PA I cannot understand why so many people hate Nickleback? I have three of their albums and I love the band and their music. I can't see anything wrong with the band.
  • Savage from New Castle, Pathis song is an attempt to persuade others that if we, as a whole all work together and care about eachother as we do our family and friends it would elemenate any evil in the world and create world peace.
  • Ridge from New Castle, PaNickelback is such a terrible band, and their songs aren't written by the band themselves. The song is about if everyone cared, hence the title. Very creative, not.
  • Mary from New Castle, Pai think this is a very song people should learn from this song and what that lyrics really mean
  • Bob from New Castle, Pathe lyrics are true to the meening that the song portrays that, we should care about one another and make the world a better place
  • Kayli from New Castle, Pato me this song sends a message that if everyone in the world got along, and didnt do anything wrong the world all around would be a better place.
  • Michael from New Castle, PaThis song basically says that we should all try to make the world a better place, not just by caring and sharing, but by not thinking we are better than others.
  • Stephanie from New Castle, Pai think this video shows how people should care more about others and if everyone tried to get along the world would be a better place to live in and there would be less violence.
  • Maria from New Castle, Pai think this song is telling us that the world could be better if everyone got along and cared about other people.
  • Liah from New Castle, PaThis music video shows how people can creat world peace if every one would swallow their pride and cared about someone else than the world would be a better place with less tradgies.
  • Travis from New Castle, Pathis music video has a stong dilevery gave me major chills watching it..the artist has captured what he needed to in making this video the meaning is great to which the world should listen we need to make a change and do it for the better......this song is true to its meaning everyone should care good job nickelback
  • Billy from New Castle, Pai think this video is about why alot of peoploe don't care what happens in this world but a few people do and those prople have souls that care about people as do i
  • Tony from Lancaster, Pai luv this song cause i hope its how the world will be someday and to people that just dis nickelback on how there not creative i like to see if they can even come out with one line of a song of their own let alone a chart topper number one hit song
  • Jesse from Ellenboro, NcThis is one of the most meaningful song someone could ever play and it is one of the best song because it is true (._)
  • Nick from Landisburg, PaObviously, if everyone was nice and caring and kind no one would ever die. It's songs like this that prove that Nickelback are some of the worst songwriters of our time. Just a bunch of generic junk about world peace. It's great that they're helping out Amnesty, but it doesn't make their lyrics meaningful.
  • Jan from Lawrenceville, Gathe chorus of this song was stolen from kiss him good bye by steam, infact you can basically sing the chorus na na na hey hey hey good bye when the guy sings 'i'm alive', i think it was better when they were stealing thier own songs instead of others though
  • Anthony from Cape May, NjThe lyrics are not related to religion as much as they are related to enjoying and appreciating your life and helping others to enjoy their lives as well..
  • Akara from Birmingham, AlSo inspirational! It's sad to think that this can never happen, people are too greedy, but it's a beautiful thought.
    "As we lie beneath the stars, we realize how small we are. If they could love like you and me, imagine what the world could be."
    My favorite lines. :)
  • Louisa from London, United KingdomI love this song, it's so beautiful. I think everyone should listen to this song. :)
  • Danleichty from Rochester, MnWhat a meaningful song. I like it alot. I do hope that this song inspires everbody to love and care for everybody in the world.
  • Matthew from Milford, MaMaybe it's just me, but this song seems to be an excellent follow-up for Boston's "Higher Power".
  • Matthew from Milford, MaThis transcends all religion... I don't really believe that this can happen without Christ's help, but that's just me. It's certainly something to aim for, even if it can't go all the way!
  • Alyssa from Forney, TxGood song =]
  • Becky from Waukesha, WiThis song is soo true. People should really learn from what these lyrics really mean.
