So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know (yeah!)

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
No nothing else matters

    I like this song because to me and my husband it really reflects our relationship and our outlook on life. Everyone in both our families didn't want us together and made a point of telling us. But "life is ours, we live it our way" and as long as we are together "nothing else matters".

    Dear Metallica fans,

    Metal Milita is back with another idea, this time maybe a little bit better than the last one. Here goes, on October 28th (also known as the birthday of Metallica) every fan is asked to go to the Enter Sandman video from Moscow (the first result) watch it and press like. If you HATE people like Justin Beiber or Lady Gaga this is the step to take. If enough people visit it will become the MOST VIEWED VIDEO IN THE HISTORY!!! PLEASE SPREAD!!! Thanks!!
