"Nothing Hurts Now" as written by and Even Johansen....
There was a time you made me believe that I'd receive
Something that would hold and wouldn't leave me cold
And there was a line you made me cross
So the two of us would have the strength to bare the crosses we couldn't share

But nothing hurts now, that didn't hurt before
So I won't pretend that it was the end of the world
Cause nothing hurts now

There was a time I made you smile and for a while
I was beautiful to you, I was beautiful like you
But these things often pass and for you they just wouldn't last
So I was first to know when you had to go

    General CommentThis is a direct quote from Magnet, taken from his website.
    "If you've really been in love with somebody, whether you just thought or you had a mutual thing or whatever, in a sort of bittersweet way how much it can hurt to be in love with somebody, and how that doesn't really change anything if it doesn't work out."

    General CommentI sort of thought it was about suicide, as if he lost a friend to suicide. I knew I was wrong though. It's always about love, I'm just morbid.
