It Matters

Everything we do, it matters - think about it.

A young girl sits on her front porch
Her knees up, her chin in her hands
She thinks that maybe he understands
As he stands on the sidewalk smiling

Because

Everything she does, everything she wants,
Everything she needs, everything she is

It matters

Some time goes by as it always does
The boy and the girl they fall in love
As if they're sanctioned from above
And they get married as expected,

Because

Everything they do, everything they want,
Everything they need, everything they are

It matters

The girl has talent as she sings the blues
But he stands by with nothing else to do
So she makes him part of her backup crew
He's not happy but he does it just for her

Because

Everything she does everything she wants
Everything she needs, only her talent

Matters


Her career takes off like a humming bee
She wants to rock, but he wants a family
He wants a child and she says, “we'll see,”
But she knows with the travel it will never work

Because

Everything he does everything he wants
Everything he needs everything he is

It doesn't matter

They split and they go their separate ways
But she thinks of him almost every day
He listens to the radio and the songs she plays
But he had to get out for his own soul's sake

Because

Everything he does, Everything he wants
Everything he needs, everything he is

It matters

After a long while she divorces the man
And his new woman shares his family plan
With their three kids they are a happy clan
And he will never look back at his past

Because now

Everything they do, everything they want
Everything they need, everything they are

Together

It matters

The End
