"Nothing Really Matters" is the fifth and final single off Madonna's seventh studio album Ray of Light.

Background

This song was written by Madonna and her frequent collaborator Patrick Leonard. She told Interview Magazine in 1998 it was inspired by her relationship with her daughter Lourdes, who was then just two years old. The singer explained: "She doesn’t know about me being famous. She hasn’t got a clue. And it's completely unconditional love, which I've never known because I grew up without a mother [who died of breast cancer when Madonna was 6]. I mean I did have my father, but I think that the love that you get from a mother is quite different."

Composition-

The song is an up-tempo dance track which contains influences of techno.

Lyrics

When I was very young
Nothin’ really mattered to me
But making myself happy
I was the only one

Now that I am grown
Everything’s changed
I’ll never be the same
Because of you

Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me

Lookin’ at my life
It’s very clear to me
I lived so selfishly
I was the only one

I realize
That nobody wins
Something is ending
And something begins

Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to

Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me

Nothin’ takes the past away
Like the future
Nothin’ makes the darkness go
Like the light
You’re the shelter from the storm
Give me comfort in your arms

Nothing really matters (Nothing really matters)
Love is all we need (Love is all we need)
Everything I give you
All comes back to me

Nothing really matters (Nothing really matters)
Love is all we need (Love is all we need)
Everything I give you (Everything I give you)
All comes back to me (It all comes back to)

Nothing really matters (Nothing really matters, love is all we need)
Love is all we need
