Alan Jackson - Things That Matter Lyrics


A little girl puts on her skates, sits down on the porch and waits
And hopes her daddy won’t be long
One more call, one more meetin’, afternoon turns into evenin’
Still he ain’t made it home

Things that matter
And things that don’t

Another place someone slams a door, says «I don’t love you anymore»
Looks like another sleepless night
Tossin’ turnin’ on the couch, he wonders if they’ll work it out
It’s all about bein’ happy or bein’ right

Things that matter
And things that don’t

We only get so many trips around the sun
Some things matter some things don’t
It’s up to you to choose which ones

We only get so many trips around the sun
Some things matter some things don’t
It’s up to you to choose which ones

So tonight as I close my eyes
I pray «Lord help me realise»
Something I already know

There’s things that matter
And things that don’t

A little girl puts on her skates, sits down on the porch and waits
And hopes her daddy won’t be long
