Those That Matter

POP SONG

  • Style: Think female version of ‘Spotlight’ by Dappy, minus the rap
  • Approx BPM: 90-100bpm

Verse 1

You have all your opinions
You stop and stare
You judge and you pass comments
You clearly don’t care
I was told to ignore you
So that’s what I tried
It’s easier said than done
With nowhere to hide

And so I reeled myself in
I watered me down
Tried to make myself worthy
Of your judgemental crown
I lived a boring half life
It took years to see
That I was falling victim
To conformity

 

Chorus

Those that matter, don’t mind
Those that mind, don’t matter
Give your heart to the first
And two fingers to the latter

 

Verse 2

The lesser version of me
Still got stares from you
I saw it didn’t matter
What I say or do
You still have your opinions
You still mock and sneer
No amount of ignorance
Makes that disappear

But one day I woke up changed
Frame of mind shifted
The weight of your opinions
Suddenly lifted
As your voice became white noise
Your jeers were faded
As I focused on who matters
You became jaded

 

Chorus

Those that matter, don’t mind
Those that mind, don’t matter
Give your heart to the first
And two fingers to the latter

 

Bridge

The people who matter
The people who love you
They always have your back
They don’t mind what you do

And if someone does mind
If they have something to say
Remember they don’t matter
Not in any kind of way

 

Chorus

Those that matter, don’t mind
Those that mind, don’t matter
Give your heart to the first
And two fingers to the latter
