November’s Music

This song has both personal and relational intensity to me on so many levels. Hetfield’s ultimate meaning of the track was extremely personal, however, it has a much greater reach than just one or a romantic couple. It also means taking the initiative to express your feelings, maybe not instantly, but certainly not days, weeks, or years later, even though doing so might make you vulnerable to heartbreak and other potential risks. But you leave with your integrity of being brutally honest. That makes it worthwhile and because…

So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting 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
It 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, yeah

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

Nothing Else Matters by Metallica, my November 2020 song and artist.
