Song meaning of No Matter What by Calum Scott


"No Matter What" is the song that Scott is "most proud of" and considers to be his "most personal song."


In the song, Scott's parents' response to learning he was gay—loving him "no matter what"—is described.


Scott stated, "I never imagined I'd be able to share it, but it was a song I had to compose every time. This song is really well-researched and covers a wide range of topics, including acceptance and sexuality." stating "Hopefully, this will spark a movement. Helping others, inspiring others, and increasing compassion are my goals."


Lyrics of No Matter What by Calum Scott





When I was a young boy I was scared of growing up

I didn't understand it but I was terrified of love

Felt like I had to choose but it was outta my control

I needed to be saved, I was going crazy on my own

Took me years to tell my mother, I expected the worst

I gathered all the courage in the world

 

She said, "I love you no matter what

I just want you to be happy and always be who you are"

She wrapped her arms around me

Said, "Don't try to be what you're not

Cause I love you no matter what"

She loves me no matter what

 

I got a little older wishing all my time away

Riding on the pavement, every sunny day was grey

I trusted in my friends then all my world came crashing down

I wish I never said a thing cause to them I'm a stranger now

 

I ran home I saw my mother, it was written on my face

Felt like I had a heart of glass about to break

 

She said, "I love you no matter what

I just want you to be happy and always be who you are"

She wrapped her arms around me

Said, "Don't try to be what you're not

Cause I love you no matter what"

Yeah!

 

Now I'm a man and I'm so much wiser

I walk the earth with my head held higher

I got the love that I need

But I was still missing one special piece

My father looked at me

 

He said, "I love you no matter what

I just want you to be happy and always be who you are"

He wrapped his arms around me

Said, "Don't try to be what you're not

Cause I love you no matter what"

He loves me no matter what

 

They love me no matter what
