Lyrics Post: “Nothing Else Matters”, Metallica

“Nothing Else Matters” ,brought to you by Metallica.

An epic expression of a simple, rooted perspective, the lyric and music at a high level. It moves me every time I hear it.

“So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters”

Haiku Start: Not of This World

From John Fifteen, Hate

Not usual, more subtle,

Lifelong, struggle, Yes.

He talked about his followers not being of this world, not being like the masses, those asleep, not aware, focused on the material, not beyond.

And so those others, the masses, they may often hate because they don’t understand, it’s too difficult, too contrary to their desires.

But those in the light, they know different. They know different.
