Baby, why do they say the things they say
Would it be easier to live the way they say we should
Maybe, cannot but wonder back this way
Yours are the only arms that make me feel like something can be good

I believe it's just a fact of life
Unless they wear our shoes to them it's black and white

Ooohhhh

Just what does it matter anyway
What side of the road we're standing on
And just what does it matter anyway
If in the long run nothing changes after we are gone
If nothing changes after we are gone

Baby, don't let them rob you of your pride
There's not a thing I wouldn't do to make this easier for you
Maybe, every now and then I laugh and cry
It's getting harder now for me to separate the two

Where does innocence turn in to make believe
Cause make believe there's no one here but me and you

Ohhh

Just what does it matter anyway
What side of the road we're standing on
And just what does it matter anyway
If you throw my love away because the world don't think it's right
And they may never understand
And you can't change the minds of those who are blind
Unless you give them sight
And the world lies in your hand

Tell me, and just what does it matter anyway
If in the long run nothing changes after we are gone
If nothing changes after we are gone
