"Don't Matter" as written by Aliaune Thiam, Bob Marley and Tony Love....
Konvict, konvict, konvict

Oh, oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Nobody wanta' see us together
Nobody thought that we'd last forever
I feel them hoping and praying
Things between us don't get better (better)

Men steady coming after you (you)
Women steady coming after me (me)
Seems like er'body want to go for self and
Don't wanna respect boundary

Telling you all those lies (oh, ooh
Just to get on your side (side)
But I must admit there was a couple
Of secrets I held inside (inside)

But just know that I try (try)
To always apologize (apologize)
And I'm gonna have you first
Always in my heart to keep you satisfied (satisfied)

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

You got every right to want to leave (wanna leave)
You got every right to want to go (wanna go)
You got every right to hit the road (hit the road)
And never talk to me no more (me no more)

You don't even have to call (have to call)
Or even check for me at all (me at all)
Because the way I've been acting lately (I've been acting)
Has been off the wall (off the wall)

Especially towards you (towards you)
Putting girls before you (before you)
And they've been watching everything I've been doing
Just to hurt you (hurt you)

Most of it just ain't true (ain't true)
And they won't show you (show you)
How much of a queen you are to me
And why I love you, baby

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

(Oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh) Cause I got you babe
(Ooh, oh, ooh, oh, ooh) Cause I got you babe
(Oh, oh, ooh, oh) Cause I got you babe
(Oh, ooh, oh, ooh) Cause I got you babe

Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)
Nobody wanta' see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you babe)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Cause we gonna fight, oh yes, we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Believe we gonna fight (we gonna fight)
Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wants to see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

    General CommentOkay, i cant listen to this song without laughing. The first time i heard this song i laughed for about 10 minutes. Am i the only one that finds this song gay. I'm sure Akon isnt gay, probably just stupid.

    General CommentI dont even listen to this type of music normally but I heard this song and was like O HELL Yeah cause this shit can relate ...............I feel I'm hopin' and prayin'
    Things between us gon' get better
    Men steady comin' after you
    Women steady comin' after me
    Seem like everybody wanna go for self
    And don't wanna respect boundaries
    Tellin' you all those lies
    Just to get on your side


    this part is awesome because its like in every relationship there is always someone trying to get in the middle and break shit up its the ones who fight it out who last .........

    Oh yes we gon' fight(We gon' fight)
    Believe we gon' fight(We gon' fight)

    But just know that I tried
    To always apologize
    And I'ma have you first always in my heart
    To keep you satisfied

    & this yeah that is just so sweet and true for me

    "Cause I got you"!

    General CommentThis song is great but i think it speaks of how a guy is working hard for his love for the chick. everybody is against them but yet he still puts everythin on the line for her. Nothing matters to him just her. Even though he's had mistakes he still know shes the one for him. no matter waht adversaries they go through it will make them stronger. Even if people put crazy ideas into their heads they will still maintain their love!!! They have each other which is enough for eachother.

    General CommentThis song is so pretty but it's also kind of sad to me because of how sweet it is. He doesn't care about what other people think of their relationship, and that's what's so awesome

    General CommentInstead of "Nobody wanna see us together
    Nobody thought we'd last forever
    I feel I'm hopin' and prayin'
    Things between us gon' get better"

    Is it not "Nobody wanna see us together
    Nobody thought we'd last forever
    I feel I'm hopin' and prayin'
    Things between us WON' get better" As in everyone else is hoping it won't get better between them so they'll break up?
