Nothing Really Matters

Album: Ray Of Light (1999)
Charted: 7 93
  • When I was very young
    Nothing really mattered to me
    But making myself happy
    I was the only one

    Now that I am grown
    Everything's changed
    I'll never be the same
    Because of you

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you
    All comes back to me

    Looking at my life
    It's very clear to me
    I lived so selfishly
    I was the only one

    I realize
    That nobody wins
    Something is ending
    And something begins

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you
    All comes back to me

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you
    All comes back to me

    Nothing takes the past away
    Like the future
    Nothing makes the darkness go
    Like the light

    You're shelter from the storm
    Give me comfort in your arms

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you (Everything I give you)
    All comes back to me

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you
    All comes back to me

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we needWriter/s: MADONNA CICCONE, MADONNA LOUISE CICCONE, PATRICK LEONARD

  • Rabbit Bunny from Westminster MdNot just to Lola, but to Rocco, David, Mercy, Esther and Stella, Nothing Really Matters is a beautiful song by Madonna in which she is crying happy an sad tears all at once! I LOVE MADONNA!
  • Sunil from Chaguanas, Trinidad And TobagoWasn't the Japanese theme in this video conceptually about particular artist or movement in Post Hiroshima Japan in which everything was muted and reflected an inward response of suppression and self-effacing in an attempt to 'rub out' and silence the memory of what had happened? I'd like to know the name of this artist or movement...if anyone can help. Thanks. .....S.
  • Daniel from Rio De Janeiro, BrazilAs with most of the Ray of Light album the song is inspired by her newly found sense of motherhood after the birth of her 1st daughter, Lourdes Maria: "I lived so selfishly, I was the only one, I realized everything's changed, something is ending and something begins"
