Mickey Gilley – That’s All That Matters to Me Lyrics

 

I know, I’m not your first love

There’s been others before me

But I’m the one that’s got you now

That’s all that matters to me

 

And I know other arms have held you

I’m not jelous of these

Mine are thee arms that hold you now

That’s all that matters to me

 

I came alive when you came along

You brought life into me

Honey, I don’t care, what’s in your past

Your as far as I can see

 

And I know other lips have kissed you

I know you’ve been thrilled and pleased

But mine are the lips that kiss you now

That’s all that matters to me

 

Mine are the lips that kiss you now

That’s all that matters to me…
