It doesn't really matter what you say
I'll always love you, anyway
The same as I love you today
There's nothing I can do

It doesn't really matter what you do
I'll always feel the same for you
For after all that we've been through
There's nothing I can do

There's nothing people say can change my mind
Although some things are so unkind
There's nothing they can do to stop me wanting you
And nothing that they say will make me feel
The love I have may not be real
I know my love is growing stronger all the time

It doesn't really matter how they try
They'll never break up you and I
And though, sometimes, they'll make you cry
There's nothing they can do

It doesn't really matter how they sneer
For you will always have me near
From day to day and year to year
There's nothing they can do

There's nothing people say can change my mind
Although some things are so unkind
There's nothing they can do to stop me wanting you
And nothing that they say will make me feel
The love I have may not be real
I know my love is growing stronger all the time.
