"Going Nowhere" as written by Arthur Smith, Amanda Ghost, Oliver Jones, Adebenga Adejumo and John Stephens....
I'm going nowhere
Don't look so scared
I'm going nowhere

So tell me that you love me again
Tell me that you care
So tell me that you love me again

Yeah I'm going nowhere
Don't look so scared
I'm going nowhere
Could be
Could be
Could be
I'm already there

    General CommentI think it's an extra song on the UK CD version, which might be why nobody else has commented no it.
    It's lovely tho, and an actual upbeat song lyrically.
    Very romantic.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful in it's simplicity. The ending is so predictable but it's still really sweet. In that way this song is really great, totally tear jerking!!!

    General CommentThis is such a great song, too bad it wasn't on the USA release. I can listen to it over and over just for the amazing piano and guitar. The intro sounds like this song would have fit great on the Disintregration album, it has that kind of feeling to it.
    A good song to listen to when you are feeling depressed.

    My InterpretationI love this song. It reminds me of the Wild Mood Swings b-sides. Somewhere between "Ocean" and "It Used to Be Me".

    It sounds almost happy, but it really isn't. To the listener, the narrator "going nowhere" is a relief. It's a good thing. But to the narrator here, it seems as if the only reason he's going nowhere or not leaving is because for some reason he can't. It's too difficult emotionally maybe? Something is preventing him from leaving. I think my interpretation is really sealed in the last lines - "could be I'm already there". I'm already nowhere. He's stuck. Trapped in what could be some sort of hell with the person he's addressing. It's a very tiresome, melancholy and trapped sort of song. Accepting the sort of hell you're in. And from the lines "so tell me that you love me again" and "tell me that you care" it seems that this is someone who is trapped with someone else. Someone that hurt them and the narrator here is wanting desperately to believe that even though this person hurt them greatly, they still love them and still care about them.

    This sounds an awful lot like some sort of codependent relationship, which is why I feel it resonates with me so intensely.
