Nothing Else Matters Lyrics - Metallica

Review The Song (64)



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, whoa
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, whoa
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

Ye Yeah!

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

Nothing Else Matters | Reviewer: Jaycee | 5/7/11

This song was written abt Hetfields girlfriend. Thats why the intro is the open strings of an E chord, because he was on the phone to her when he wrote the intro. So its abt love and his girlfriend. The lyrics so close no matter how far, refer to him touring and beng away from her, but still being so close



listen to your heart | Reviewer: meg | 4/26/11

my family does not like my husband. i always
listen to this song and think to my self how lucky i am to have my husband he saved me life from a drunk driver, i was driving, the guy came at us and my husband grabed the car wheel and got us safely on the side of the road, it was a huge tractor truck that almost killed me. so remember these works by metallica - So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

to me it does not matter that my family dislikes my husband, as long as i am happy thats all that matters to me. thanks metallica (if the band is reading this)



fuck a duck | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/23/11

James hit a vocal and lyrical high point in this song. The song is beautiful and inspired in both ways. Lars and kirk were also brilliant. Metallica is one of the best bands ever and this song really showed off how amazing they are when they do soft music. I love it!



Meaning | Reviewer: anonymous | 3/9/11

okay not to try to prove anyone wrong and not trying to interpret the lyrics for anyone but the song was originally wrote to express heitfield's feelings towards the band. He felt that when he is in metallica nothing else matters so it is not about love but it could be if you want it to mean that. but the actual meaning is heitfield's feelings towards the band lol thanks



Metallica? Beautiful?!? You Bet Your Ass It Is | Reviewer: Stephen | 3/2/11

When I first heard this song, I was in disbelief. Naw, this couldn't be Metallica. They don't...wait...there's Hetfield..HOLY SHIT THIS IS METALLICA!

That being said, this has become my anthem for my feelings for my girlfriend. Nothing. Else. Matters.

This is the most romantic song I know. Not to say there aren't other ones out there, but nothing is more romantic than telling your significant other that you value them above all else, and you could give a rat's ass about what everyone else thinks.

This is the best version. While S&M was beautiful, and Apocalyptica's live rendition is as well, nothing compares to the original. I have heard this live, and the only issue I have with other versions (including Metallica live) is that they cut off that last verse. I feel that you really need that last verse to bring the song full circle and really emphasize just how much you care.



great escape | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/3/11

The first time I heard this song I was really sad.Actually I was falling in love and the emotions which comes with that often make people sad.Anyway,this song was a real help.It showed me the way...It showed me how to live.It's one of greatest songs I've ever heard..a good way to escape and fly..hope u have the same feeling while listening...tnx Metallica :D



Stand up for yourself | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/10

I especially love this song for the following lyrics:

"Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
I'd never cared for what they do
I'd never cared for what they know"

I think the single most important thing in life is not give in to peer-pressure. It's everywhere and 99% of the people I know cave in. Doing things to be 'cool' while they don't want to do it (drinking, smoking, hanging out till 5 o'clock in the morning etc.). If you do want to do these things, then fine. But if you don't, just have the guts to stand up for yourself. These are obviously just examples. People buy a house, a car, clothes, other stuff they can't afford, just to impress others. It's lame.

The lyrics of this song (the part I mentioned) means just that for me. I don't care what other people think, do, say etc. They are playing games, and I'm not joining in. When you do, where would you stop? And you the ironic part? It's the people who want to stop tagging along themselves that push others the hardest. Sad.

The lyrics are probably meant very differently, but this is what they mean to me.

Either way: great, great song!



Metallica | Reviewer: Michael | 3/25/10

I love metallica soo much but this song is one of my favourites, i mean who cares if it is soft, its still METALLICA. I mean the songs on St Anger arent that good cause of the solos but still Death Magnetic was a good album because metallica went back to thrash. the only bad thing is that most people believe that metallica have become money-huggers. FUCK EM ALL!! METALLICA FOR LYFE BABY!!
