"It don't matter to me" as written by and David Gates....
It don't matter to me
If you really feel that
You need sometime to be free
Time to go out searching for yourself
Hoping to find
Time to go to find

And it don't matter to me
If you take up with someone who's better than me
'Cause your happiness is all I want
For you to find peace your piece of mind

Lotta people have an ego hang-up 'cause they want to be the only one
How many came before it really doesn't matter
Just as long as you're the last
Everybody's moving on and try to find out
What's been missing in the past

And it don't matter to me
If your searching brings you
Back together with me
'Cause there'll always be an empty room
Waiting for you
An open heart
Waiting for you
Time is on my side
'Cause it don't matter to me

It don't matter to me
It don't matter to me
It don't matter to me
It don't matter to me
It don't matter to me

'Cause there'll always be, an empty room
Waiting for you
An open heart
Waiting for you
Time is on my side
'Cause it don't matter to me

    General CommentBread is such a great classic 70s pop group, but at the same time they transcend pop, because their songs are almost all very melancholy. Their music is a lot like Nick Drake's in some ways, it's very easy to listen to, very easy to get (much easier to process than Nick Drake's... which is an acquired taste, I think) but it's emotionally complex while being intellectually simple. It's spiritually complex while being philosophically simple. Your mind is not so much at work as your heart.

    My InterpretationLet's see. Written by David Gates in 1969. He didn't go to war. Many of his friends didn't do so well with the magic spinning wheel of Vietnam service (for the attuned, that's another hint) Hmmm. What makes y'all think this song has to be about a chick? Ever read the lyrics to Danny Boy? Not all songs are about chicks. Some men go to war and don't come back. (oh, and read Ulysses by James Joyce so you know what a novel is for)
