"It Doesn't Matter" is Sonic the Hedgehog's theme song in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. In Sonic Adventure the song has a BPM around 120, and the song (verses especially) is a little more laid back. In Sonic Adventure 2, the song is much faster and has a different melody and arrangement.

It also plays briefly in Sonic and the Black Knight, and is unlockable in Sonic Generations. Both versions were performed by Tony Harnell.

It Doesn't Matter

Ooooh, yeah!
Well, I don't show off, don't criticize
I'm just livin' by my own feelings
And I won't give in, won't compromise
I just only have a steadfast heart of gold
I don't know why, I can't leave though it might be tough
But I ain't out of control, just livin' by my word
Don't ask me why, I don't need a reason
I got my way, my own way
It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
There is no way I will run away from all of my frights
Long as the voice inside me says go, I will always keep on running
There is no way to stop me from going to the very top
It doesn't matter who is wrong or who is right
Well, I won't look back, I don't need to
Time won't wait and I got so much to do
Where do I stop, it's all a blur and so unclear
Well, I don't know but I can't be wrong
This fight is not for anybody, this is purely for myself
There is no way I'm gonna give up 'til the very end
I can't tell what is wrong and what is right, I've got to find the answer
But until I do, there's no way I will ever give up
Place all your bets on the one you think is right
(instrumental)
It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
There is no way I will run away from all of my frights
Long as the voice inside me says go, I will always keep on running
There is no way to stop me from going to the very top
It doesn't matter who is wrong or who is right

It Doesn't Matter (Sonic Adventure 2)

Oh yeah
All right
Well, I don't show off, don't criticize
I'm just livin' by my own feelings
And I won't give in, won't compromise
'Cuz I only have a steadfast heart of gold
I don't know why, I can't leave though it might be tough
But I ain't out of control, just livin' by my word
Don't ask me why, I don't need a reason
I got my way, my own way
It doesn't matter
Now what happens, I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
It doesn't matter who is wrong and who is right
Well I don't look back, I don't need to
Time won't wait and I got so much to do
Where do I stop now, it's all a blur and so unclear
Well, I don't know but I can't be wrong
It doesn't matter now what happens, I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
Place all your bets on the one you think is right
Oh, it doesn't matter now what happens, I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
It doesn't matter who is wrong and who is right
No, no no no
It doesn't matter!
