Sometimes he lets that boss get in his head He can't see past that mountain of deadlines on his desk Five oclock he's that last one out of the gate And he gets cut off flipped off ticked off out on the interstate And he wonders why this world won't leave him alone Till he hears a little voice holler 'daddy's home' Things that matter Things that don't
She's held on to that grudge all her life Had thirty years of anger Since her dad walked out that night She thinks of all the moments that he's missed All the birthdays ballets first dates That seems too much to forget She gets that call that said he don't have long She walks in He starts crying The past is gone Things that matter Things that don't
Time ain't on my side Don't want to leave this world With why didn't I? Why didn't I? Yeah why didn't I?
Sometimes I take on this world by myself Thinking I got all the answers Don't need anybody's help Well god was right there waiting for me all along To fall down on my knees surrender all Things that matter Things that don't Things that matter Things that don't
