Artist's Notes

A lyric about the value of friendship, when other aspects on one's life feel dark.


Lyrics

 

All That Matters

 

 

 

(Verse 1)

 

Jagged are the thorns of life that prick me

 

Cruel in their benign disguise

 

It seems that the closer to joy that I get

 

The more they delight in their lies

 

 

 

(Verse 2)

 

Wretched is the dream of love that I see

 

Fake in its serpentine charm

 

I know that the sweeter all the kisses 

 

The deeper the poison's harm

 

 

 

(Pre chorus)

 

So

 

You don't know how much your kind heart means

 

The solace that your words bring

 

When I feel my life tearing apart at the seams

 

I know that you're in my team

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Half the world away

 

My life in tatters

 

You're still my friend

 

That's all that matters

 

 

 

(Verse 3)

 

Malign is the force of doubt and self pity

 

That eats me up from inside

 

But your words push the beast from my door

 

I feel like I don't need to hide

 

 

 

(Pre chorus)

 

You don't know how much your kind heart means

 

The solace that your words bring

 

When I feel my life tearing apart at the seams

 

I know that you're in my team

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Half the world away

 

My life in tatters

 

You're still my friend

 

That's all that matters

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

There's a bridge that I walk to

 

Sometimes

 

It stands high across an expanse of sea,

 

Though the clouds may be dark

 

There's still room in my heart

 

For hope

 

And for my soul to wander free.

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Half the world away

 

My life in tatters

 

You?re still my friend

 

That's all that matters,

 

Half the world away

 

You?re still my friend

 

And that's all that matters
