Nothing Else Matters: Metallica and Apocalyptica

Posted by Sulabh Shrestha | Posted in , , | Posted on 3:14 AM



This is one of the very few love songs of Metallica. According to James Hetfield (vocalist of Metallica), he wrote the song about a girlfriend he once had, but when he looks back at it, he can't remember why he wrote it. Now, Metallica just considers it a song about their fans, because "nothing else matters" but their fans. This mild music video is perfect for a soft song with simple and melodic pluckings and solo and blending vocals of James. This song was covered by "Apocalyptica". The covered version is not different than what they have been doing. Its a symphonic instrumental with no vocals, guitars or drums. 



Lyrics:



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, whoa
But I know

So close no matter how far
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, whoa
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 things they say
Never cared for games they play
I'd never cared for what they do
I'd never cared for what they know
And I know

Yeah!

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