Don't Matter

The beat, the lyrics, and the rhythm of this song keep reminding me of my first experience! Yup, my first experience in the Corporate World...my first love in the Corporate World!

Yeah...I always remember my first job right after Collage. It was April 2007 when it all started...!


The year was 2007 when this song by Akon hit the airwaves. The same year when I finished my ECE course and the year when I got my first job!

April right after my graduation, I immediately looked a job that would fit my qualifications. I walked-in in all the glamorous and beautiful buildings in Makati. My first target building was the tallest tower in the city which is the PBCom tower while next in my line is RCBC. I used to dropped my resumes in all the floors of PBCom. Imagine how high is it...53 floors!

Thanks God my efforts were rewarded. I got two final interviews and two job offers from the two companies in PBCom. The choice was mine during that time, I prefer to choosed the second company, a small IT firm where I was given an offer as Network Admin and Telecom Sales Associate rather than the first one as a Technical Writer with a 5 year contract! God...I really missed my crush in the first company, she's really nice, cute, and beautiful! She's the HR manager who interviewed me!


But then I finally decided to choosed the second company where I can apply my ECE course. Starting with this company, I was longing for my HR manager crush in the first company. Maybe its a coincidence that they were just above our floor. We were located on the 22nd floor while they were on the 23rd!

But this infatuation stopped when my schoolmate entered our company. Yeah, I recommended her to our General Manager as a programmer. Thanks God, she was hired! And this started my love story with her. A new love in a new world...in a Corporate World!

How nice that we were always together. We ate lunch together, we go home together! Our other officemates used to cheer us. Lagi na nila kaming tinutukso...my heart really jumped for joy!

I always with her. When I came home late at night, we go home together ridding in a bus. I like to go home late at night so that there will no more LRT to ride, so that we can ride together in a bus for a long time. She even sleeps in my shoulder...wow! Even in the afternoon, I used to get "tampo" with her if she did not eat lunch with me! I got very angry if she joined lunch with my other boy officemates rather than me!

But things got over...I finally decided to leave my first job to look for a better company. Yeah, I leave her in our company. But on my final day on the said company, we ate lunch together, our final lunch!

For now, let me cut first our story short. Let us now move to the song that used to be one of our themes. This is the song by Akon. Enjoy its lyrics then try to reminisce our story as you hear it here in my playlist! c",)




Don't Matter
(Akon)

Konvict Konvict
Oh
Ohoohwooe
Oooh
Ooohhwooe

[Chorus:]

Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe
'Cause we gon' fight
Oh yes we gon' fight
Believe we gon' fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you

Nobody wanna see us together
Nobody thought we'd last forever
I feel 'em hopin' and prayin'
Things between us don't get better
Men steady comin' after you
Women steady comin' after me
Seem like everybody wanna go for self
And don't wanna respect boundaries
Tellin' you all those lies
Just to get on your side
But I must admit there was a couple secrets
I held inside
But just know that I tried
To always apologize
And I'ma have you first always in my heart
To keep you satisfied

[Chorus]

Got every right to wanna leave
Got every right to wanna go
Got every right to hit the road
And never talk to me no more
You don't even have to call
Even check for me at all
Because the way I been actin' lately
Has been off the wall
Especially toward you
Puttin' girls before you
And they watchin' everything I been doin'
Just to hurt you
Most of it just ain't true
Ain't true
And they won't show you
How much of a queen you are to me
And why I love you baby

[Chorus]

Oh oh oh oh oh
'Cause I got you
'Cause I got you
Oh
'Cause I got you babe
'Cause I got you

Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe
'Cause we gon' fight
Oh yes we gonn' fight
Believe we gon' fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe

Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you babe
'Cause we gon' fight
Oh yes we gon' fight
Believe we gon' fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you
