Did It Matter

Did it matter to you
That my goals disappeared
That what I made went up in flames?

Did it matter to you
That my best friend leapt off
That the sole witness was me?

Did it matter to you
That I suffered from nightmares
That they didn’t stop after waking up?

Did it matter to you
That I could only read certain words
That sentences were once in a blue moon?

Cause look at you now
Begging on your knees
Calling yourself my BFF
That you’ve loved me all along
Reaching out to barely grasp
At the riches that I have amassed
Only a dollar, only a thousand
What are friends for, eh?

Stay away all you fair weather friends
Cause apparently I did not matter then.

Does It Matter

Does it matter
If the world thinks of you
As a mean person
If the world thinks of you
Better off dead

Does it matter
If the world believes itself
More than with evidence
If the world believes itself
Despite your desperate protesting

Does it matter
If the world locks you out
Because you can’t draw a straight line
If the world locks you out
Because you can’t reach a high note

Does it matter
If the world keeps you down
Demanding you change your ways
If the world keeps you down
Demanding that you are to blame

Does it matter
If the world brands you
Unlovable
If the world brands you
A disease

Does it matter at all
What other people say
Cause I am by your side
I will be by your side
Best friends never leave
