You Matter to Me
Drew Gehling Lyrics


I could find the whole meaning of life in those sad eyes
They've seen things that you never quite say, but I hear
Come out of hiding, I'm right here beside you
And I'll stay there as long as you let me

Because you matter to me
Simple and plain and not much to ask from somebody
You matter to me
I promise you do, you, you matter too
I promise you do, you see?
You matter to me

It's addictive the minute you let yourself think
The things that I say just might matter to someone
All of this time I've been keeping my mind on the running away
And for the first time I think I'd consider the stay

Because you matter to me
Simple and plain and not much to ask from somebody
You matter to me
I promise you do, you, you matter too
I promise you do, you see?
You matter to me

And you matter to me
Simple and plain and not much to ask from somebody
You matter to me
I promise you do, you
(Out of hiding I'm right here beside you)
You matter too
(As long as you have me)
I promise you do, you, you matter too
(Out of hiding I'm right here beside you)
I promise you do, you, you matter too
(I do, I promise you do, you matter to me)
I promise you do, you see
You matter to me

Dear baby
I hope someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight
They don't pull away, they don't look at your face
And they don't try to kiss you
All they do is wrap you up in their arms and hold on tight without an ounce of selfishness in it
I hope you become addicted, baby
I hope you become addicted to sayin' things
And having them matter to someone

[JENNA / DR. POMATTER]
You matter to me
Simple and plain and not much to ask from somebody
You matter to me

[JENNA]
I promise you do

You, you matter too
I promise you do
You matter to me [DR. POMATTER]
Come out of hiding I'm right here beside you
As long as you'll have me

I do, promise you do
You matter to me
[JENNA / DR. POMATTER]
You'll see
You matter to me

I could find the whole meaning of life in those sad eyes

They've seen things that you never quite say, but I hear

Come out of hiding, I'm right here beside you

And I'll stay there as long as you'll let me

Simple and plain and not much to ask from somebody

You matter to me

I promise you do, you, you matter too

I promise you do, you'll see?

You matter to me



It's addictive the minute you let yourself think

The things that I say just might matter to someone

All of this time I've been keeping my mind on the running away

Love is one of the worst words we have.

It is a poor and confusing descriptor for a wide variety of concepts and emotions.

Depending who you ask, there are 6, 7 or even 8 different words the Greeks had that represent different types of love.

I love society. I love my country. I love my family. I love my Creator. I love my brothers in my fraternity.

What is particularly painful is when we express love for someone to find out that it is unrequited. Sometimes this is obvious and immediate, but sometimes someone may say they love us back but not mean the same thing we say.

I hear that it is important to frequently and boldly to tell people you love them. Life is short. We should make others feel better and spread love where we can.

But it may be even better to say "you matter to me".

Four magic words instead of three.

You hear people say they think they were in love, but they weren't or they quickly fell out of love. Someone can sincerely value what a person means to them under select circumstances. You can love how a person makes you feel when you are getting something from that person, but is that truly selfless? Is that the same thing as consideration?

"You matter to me" is a more selfless concept that as a person, not as what you provide, you matter to a person.

In times like these, we all need to hear that more than ever.

If you're on my friends list, that is because we have some connection on some level at least. And to that, I want you to know you matter to me.

I hope you hear this from others who say this with great sincerity, conviction and consideration.

I hope we also learn to say this to others more often with no mercenary motivation.

Make someone's day. Let them know that they matter to you.

그 슬픈 눈 속에서 너의 전부를 본 나

너는 말한 적 없지만 난 알아 다

내 손을 잡아 숨지 않아도 돼

항상 너의 옆을 지켜줄게

너는 내 삶의 의미

너에게 난 더 바랄게 없어 충분해

넌 나의 의미

나 약속할게 나

너의 곁에

함께 있을게 평생

넌 나의 의미

여 - 빠져들어 스스로 깨닫는 순간

나도 누군가에게 소중하단 걸

언제나 나는 도망치고 살아왔었지만

이제는 아니야 너의 손 놓치지 않아

함께 - 너는 내 삶의 의미

너에게 난 더 바랄게 없어 충분해

넌 나의 의미

나 약속할게 나 (내 손을 잡아 숨지 않아도 돼)

너의 곁에 (옆을 지켜줄게 믿어^)

나 약속할게 평생 (나 약속할게)

넌 나의 의미

알 아

넌 나의 의미

What I love about this song is that it acknowledges that they aren't in love, but they do matter to each other and that's what they want and need at the moment, which is truly beautiful

Sirendipity Britt

@jellyrcw12 yes! You’ll see :)

Sirendipity Britt

They are in love. Just choosing to do the “right” thing :)

I never looked at it this way but it's honestly beautiful. I like having a middle aged musical. I'm only in my 20s and I relate to this show so much, I can only imagine how I'll feel in a decade or two.

Honestly this is the kind of relationship I want

The kids count me know what works best with your friends

This song is the musical equivalent of being held for 20 minutes straight.

Sophia Muharram

m a c ! Wow. I never thought about it like that. Wow this song is so powerful yet beautiful in its simplicity.

Lexi Conti-Windle

so true

Aspen Adams

I love this song because it's one of the few musical songs that is about love but isn't inherently romantic. It's so nice having a song I can listen to as an aroace person and think 'this is platonic'
