Song Lyric Sunday | “I Care ‘Bout You” – Milestone

SLS banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and we’re all heartbroken to see her step away for health reasons, but we wish Helen a full recovery to good health and a happy 2019! Many thanks to author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me for stepping in to keep the weekly challenge going. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  doctor/health/medicinebut I put this post together early as a favorite song!


I Care ‘Bout You is from the soundtrack of the 1997 movie, Soul Food, starring Vanessa Williams.

The song is performed by the quartet group Milestone, which is actually artist and super music producer, Babyface, with his brothers, Kevon and Melvin Edmonds, and brothers Cedric ‘K-Ci’ & Joel ‘JoJo’ Hailey, (formerly of the chart-topping R & B group, Jodeci) who all came together only to record the single and appear in the movie.

The soundtrack was a huge success, peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and was certified 2x Multi-Platinum on February 17, 1998. Four singles made it to the Billboard Hot 100: I Care ‘Bout You, Total’s What About Us?, Dru Hill’s We’re Not Making Love No More, and Boys II Men’s A Song for Mama—making it to 23, 16, 13, and 7 on the chart, respectively. A Song for Mama was also a #1 R&B single.

I posted two versions of the video.

The official video is an amazing blend of the group, movie clips… and picture frames!

The second video is a live performance from Oprah. Milestone does a great job, of course, but it’s the audience reactions that truly make the video. They really get into it!

I Care ‘Bout You

[Verse 1: JoJo]
Sometimes I feel so alone. I call your heart
But there’s no one at home. Taking a toll on my pride
I’m reaching out but there’s no one inside

[Verse 2: Kevon Edmonds]
You know it doesn’t feel right, when I look
In your eyes. I know love is blind, but the
Heart doesn’t lie. I’ll ask one more time
Maybe this time you’ll try. So tell me girl
What’s deep in your heart

[Hook: All]
Girl, i care about you. I’m there for you
So why don’t you care for me like I care about you?
Girl, I care about you. I’m there for you
So why don’t you care for me like I care about you?

[Verse 3: Melvin Edmonds]
I spend like all of my days trying to suss out
Just how things got this way. I thought that we were
In love. But, I swear right now I don’t know what
You want

[Verse 4:K-Ci]
I make sure that I give you quality time
But, lately I feel you’re not home by design
But still Im gon’ try to give you the love of my life
In hopes that you will open up your heart


[Bridge: Kevon & K-Ci]
Sometimes (sometimes i’m not) I’m not sure that
(Im all you’ve got) That i’m all you’ve got
(Sometimes i’m not) Sometimes i’m not sure if you
Love me, or not (babe)
Just one thing i know, girl i care for you
And the one thing that i want is that you care for me too
