Things That Matter Lyrics

Sometimes he lets that boss get in his head.
He can't see past that mountain
of deadlines on his desk.
5 o'clock, he's the 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,
'til he hears that little voice holler "daddy's home."
Things that matter, things that don't.

She's held onto that grudge for 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.
It seems too much to forgive.
She gets that call that says 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 our side,
Don't wanna leave this world with,
Why didn't I? Why didn't I?
Yeahh why didn't I?

Sometimes I take on this world by myself,
thinkin' 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.
