Metallica : Nothing Else Matters | Album - Metallica (1992)

This amazing song was relesed in 1992. Since then it has been covered over forty times. Singer and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield wrote the song while he was on the phone with his then girlfriend. Since he held the phone with one hand, he plucked the four open strings of a standard E-minor chord with the other, which eventually made up the first two bars of the song. The lyrics, which talk about being "so close, no matter how far", were also dedicated to his girlfriend, indicating the bond they shared even when Hetfield was on tour.
Initially, the song was not meant to be released, as Hetfield had written it for himself, but after drummer Lars Ulrich heard it, it was considered for the album. (Source : Wikipedia)


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 
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 
but I know 

Never opened myself this way 
Life is ours, we live it our way 
All these words I don't just say 

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 say 
never cared for games they play 
never cared for what they do 
never cared for what they know 
and I know 

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