It Don’t Matter to the Sun

Don Henley Stevie Nicks It Don't Matter to the Sun NEW DUET!

It don’t matter to the sun
If you go or if you stay
No, the sun is gonna rise, gonna rise
Shine down on another day
There will be a tomorrow
Even if you choose to leave
‘Cause it don’t matter to the sun, no, no
It matters to meIt ain’t gonna change the world
If you walk out that door
This old world will just keep spinnin’ ’round
Spinnin’ ’round
Like it did the day before
‘Cause to them it makes no difference
It just keeps on keepin’ time
It ain’t gonna stop the world, no, no
It’ll be the end of mine
What can I say
What can I do
I’m still in love
Why aren’t youIt don’t matter to the moon
If you’re not in my life
No, the moon will just keep hangin’ ’round
Hangin’ ’round
Like it’s just another night
You’ll find another place to shine down
On some other lover’s dreams
It don’t matter to the moon, no
It matters to me

It don’t matter to the moon, no, no
But it matters to me

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac.

Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
