Doesn't matter what your friends are telling you
Doesn't matter what my family's saying too
It just matters that I'm in love with you
It only matters that you love me too
It doesn't matter if they won't accept you
I'm accepting of you and the things you do
Just as long as it's you
Nobody but you, baby, baby

My love for you, unconditional love too
Gotta get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
And show you that it

Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
'Cause I'm in love with the inner being
Oh, doesn't really matter what they believe
What matters to me is you're in love with me
Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
'Cause I'm in love with the inner being
Oh, doesn't really matter what they believe
What matters to me is you're nutty, nutty, nutty for me

(You're so kind)
Just what I asked for, you're so loving and kind
(And you're mine)
And I can't believe you're mine

Doesn't matter if you're feeling insecure
Doesn't matter if you're feeling so unsure
'Cause I'll take away the doubt within your heart
And show that my love will never hurt or harm
Doesn't matter what the pain we go through
Doesn't matter if the money's gone too
Just as long as I'm with you
Nobody but you, baby, baby

Your love for me, unconditional I see
Gotta get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
And show you that it

Edit

Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing

Oh, doesn't really matter what they believe
What matters to me is you're in love with me
Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
'Cause I'm in love with your inner being
Oh, doesn't really matter what they believe
What matters to me is you're nutty, nutty, nutty for me

(You're so kind)
Oh, just what I asked for, you're so loving and kind

Rock mix
'Cause you know I'm gonna love you
'Cause my love will always

My love for you, unconditional love too
Gotta get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
And show you that my love is true and it's just for you

Nutty, nutty, nutty, my love for you
I can't believe my dreams come true
I've finally found somebody whose heart is true
And best of all is you love me too (nutty, nutty, nutty for me)

Oh-whoa, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-whoa (woo)
Oh-whoa, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-whoa

Nutty, nutty, nutty, my love for you
I can't believe my dreams come true
I've finally found somebody whose heart is true
And best of all is you love me too
Nutty, nutty, nutty, my love for you
I can't believe my dreams come true
I've finally found somebody whose heart is true
And best of all is you're nutty, nutty, nutty for me

    Specifically written for her part in Eddie Murphy's movie "The Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps", Janet Jackson's song comments on the nature of her love not being based on the appearance of someone, but on what type of person he really is. In this case Sherman's weight loss formula may make him externally attractive but it releases an inner being, Buddy, who does not care for anyone but himself. Healthy relationships cannot be based on what is on the outside: "Never judge a book by it's cover."

    i just started a relationship with my best guy friend but i can't help the feeling that he questions why i like him so much. he's even asked me to rate him on attractiveness. i keep telling him that i care more for his personality than his looks but he doesn't seem to get it. while i think physical attraction is key to a good relationship, i just wish it wasn't so important to him. but when i remember this song i think "finally, someone who sings about it's not what you look like but your heart." My love for him isn't based on appearance but it's so hard to get him to see that.

    It seems to be about a relationship in which everyone thinks that the girl is crazy for liking the guy, but she loves him so much that none of their opinions matter.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
