"As Long As It Matters" as written by and Phillip/wilson Rhodes....
How can I find something
That two can take
Without stumbling as we
Walk into our future's wake
I'm like a broken record
That you can play
Repeating as if it matters
Everything I want to say
I'll be all right
As long as it matters
As long as you're here with me now
Forget that time
It's nothing we touch and see
All this is fine
Even as it crashes down on me
I'm looking around
There's nothing that I could want
More than to tell you
There's no more than we've already got
I'll be all right
As long as it matters
As long as you're here with me now
Forget that our time is almost up I'll be all right

    General Commentthis album came out durning my teenage years. It reminds me of those years of selfishness and angst. I still love the album even now. And yes, i am still selfish, probably even more so.

    General Commentthis song is as depressing as it sounds. as long as it matters is another relationship song. the guy is madly in love, but the girl isn't very responsive. they have a 1 night stand, but then there relationship appears to be over. the guy pours his heart out trying to get the girl to stay with him, but nothing comes of it. however, he knows he'll be alright at least until the night is over.

    General CommentEverything is going to hell and he's losing her, but he's just trying to make the best of it, tell himself he'll be ok and take what comfort he can from her while she's still around.

    General CommentGreat song. Reminds me of a girl I knew for three days who changed me forever, I still think about her all the time, I'd bet she doesn't even rememeber me. I probably need counseling!

    General Commentthe traditional depressing sound of GB. as long as it matters tells about a guy and a girl who have sex, but don't have a relationship. he wants her to make a commitment, but she's not into that. he's greatly hurt that they can't be together, but he settles for sex. hense that he'll be alright 'as long as your here with me now.'

    General CommentThis is a good song that I never heard until I picked up their best-of compilation.

    It's easy to explain the "as long as you're here with me now" part

    ..but what about the "as long as it matters" ? that's the title, after all. What is it that "matters"? What about the "mattering" does he take solace in? Who does is "matter" to - the guy or the girl??
