No Matter What


words and music by Rick Paul

Your mother left when you were nine
I never met my dad
But, baby, I know we can try
To build something we never had
I know life is no fairy tale
Waiting to come true
But if I don’t get shot or land in jail
I promise this to you

You have my love
No matter what
You have my faith
You have my trust
I promise I will stick with you
No "ifs" or "ands" or "buts"
You have my love
No matter what

I’ll get a job in the factory
And get out of these streets
You’ll clean up, just wait and see
We’ll both find our feet
It may be tough, but through it all
I’ll be at your side
And one day when we’re standing tall
I’ll still say with pride

You have my love
No matter what
You have my faith
You have my trust
I promise I will stick with you
No "ifs" or "ands" or "buts"
You have my love
No matter what

I know it’s hard to take that first step
It may be rough along the way
But together we can climb out of this ghetto
If you’ll just trust me when I say

You have my love
No matter what
You have my faith
You have my trust
I promise I will stick with you
No "ifs" or "ands" or "buts"
You have my love
No matter what
You have my love
No matter what
