Alan Jackson – Things That Matter

Written by on November 23, 2021

From his album Where Have Things Gone, Alan Jackson presents Things That Matter.

A little girl puts on her skates
Sits down on the porch and waits
And hopes her daddy won’t be long
One more call, one more meeting
Afternoon turns into evening
Still, he ain’t made it home

Things that matter
And things that don’t

Another place someone slams the door
Says, “I don’t love you anymore”
Looks like another sleepless night
Tossing, turning on the couch
He wonders if they’ll work it out
It’s all about being happy or being right

Things that matter
And things that don’t

We only get so many trips around the sun
Some things matter, some things don’t
It’s up to you to choose which one

We only get so many trips around the sun
Some things matter, some things don’t
It’s up to you to choose which one
So tonight as I close my eyes
I pray Lord help me realize
Something I already know

There’s things that matter
And things that don’t

A little girl puts on her skates
Sits down on the porch and waits
And hopes her daddy won’t be long
