"Out of Nothing" as written by and Daniel Anthony/mcnamara Mcnamara....
Out of nothing you came to my arms and you're right,
I fell every time.
You're the first and the last time that I'll ever try,
So dry your eyes.

I'll say goodbye.
I'll say goodbye.

I'm left hanging like all dancing bears I need rope,
To keep me in line.
I can't stop them there's more bombshells coming I choke,
More words, more lies.

I'll say goodbye.
I'll say goodbye.

I can't believe it's come to this,
I'm banging on a sinking ship,
Hoping someone hears my list.
For every trial I'll take the fall,
And never notice it no more.
What we had won't conquer all.
And while the shots still ringing out,
You do your worst to bring me down.
You do your worst to take me out.

I'll say goodbye.
I'll say goodbye.

    General CommentThe way the last verse is so racy compared to the others suggests to me that there are mixed emotions.

    Sad, but at the same time angry/frustrated.

    General CommentThis song sums up beautifully how I feel right now. One moment I'm so low and feel as emotional as the first two verses. But the next I burst out inot this anger like the last verse, but that dies away and I'm left with nothing.

    General CommentThat's how I felt when I broke up with my first boyfriend... :[
    This song would always be on repeat for me... It just... explained it all. Because I felt that that would be my last time to love someone, and that one person had been the one keeping my life together. Afterwards, it just seemed like I was clinging onto something that was never going to happen...
    Out of nothing,... I became nothing all over again... :(
    I wonder if that's what the title is about... :/ I wonder...

    It's such a beautiful song.
    Definitely one of my favorites of all time... I cry nearly every time I hear it.
    So perfect... and honest.

    General CommentThis song has to be one of the very best of 2004. It has a very personal meaning to me as my current situation relates to it very well. For me, it's about someone who has been left behind by a girl who he loves very deeply, and there's nothing but excuses.

    The first verse had many meanings.
    Out of nothing, you came to my arms - for me this means, you always came to me for help whenever you needed it.
    I fell every time - could mean, every time you came to me i fell in love with you even more, or it could mean, I collapsed under the pressure and ended up being useless.
    You're the first and the last time that I'll ever try - speaks for itself really.
    So dry your eyes, I'll say goodbye - Don't cry about this, don't get worked up over it, I'll be the better person and leave before it hurts us both.
    I'm left hanging like all dancing bears I need rope to keep me in line - without you in my life, there's no direction, no one there to help me on my way any more.
    I can't stop them, there's more bombshell coming I choke. More words, more lies - there's more bad news to come my way, I can't stop this happening any more. The more that's said, the less that's true.
    I can't believe it's come to this, I'm banging on a sinking ship - I'm trying so hard save the situation when I can see it's so obvious that it's too late now.
    Hoping someone hears my list - there's so many things I want to say, but no one listens any more.
    For every trial I'll take a fall, you never notice it no more - Every time we argue, it hurts me more and more but you just don't seem to care.

    The rest of the song really speaks for itself. This is just my personal opinion anyway.
