"Nothing You Are" as written by Mandy Moore and James Renald....
Somebody told me, they saw you somewhere
Somebody hold me, 'cause suddenly I'm a little, cold
Well I must be mistaken you for somebody else
I know you all to well, or do I?

[Chorus:]
I heard you say
We were one and the same
Well wrong again
I could never do those things you did to me
I will be OK
In time you'll fade
Into the nothing that you are
The nothing you are

Somebody sold me, yeah the same old story
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Hadn't you told me, you were there the whole time
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Well I must be mistaken you for somebody else
I hope you burn in hell, or do I?

[Chorus]

I know your mistakes will hunt you down, eventually
You'll know that when you hit the ground
Your weakness did you in, and dealt me out
It's OK, I have the truth on my side

I heard you say
We were one and the same
We'll wrong again
I could never do those things, you did to me
I will be OK
In time you'll fade
Into nothing that you are
The nothing you are
The nothing you are
The nothing you are
The nothing you are

    General Commentdoes she say something

    "Somebody told me they saw you somewhere ___neat? new?'



    Somebody told me they saw you somewhere
    Somebody hold me cause suddenly I don't...? (no idea)
    Well I must be mistaken for somebody else
    I know you all too well
    Or do I

    Chorus:
    I heard you say we were one and the same
    You were wrong again
    I would never do those things you did to me
    I will be okay in time you'll fade
    Into the nothing that you are
    The nothing you are

    Somebody told me you're the same old story
    Hadn't you told me you were there the whole time
    Well I must be mistaken for somebody else
    I hope you burn in hell
    Or do I

    Chorus

    I know mistakes will haunt you down eventually
    You'll know that when you hit the ground
    Your weakness did you in and dealt me out
    It's okay i have the truth on my side

    I heard you say we were one and the same
    Well wrong again
    I would never do those things you did to me
    I will be okay in time you'll fade
    Into the nothing that you are
    The nothing you are

    The nothing you are (3x)

    General CommentShe said all of the songs on the new record are personal. It's obviously about dealing with a breakup and this was written a couple years ago, so I would assume it's about her relationship with Andy Roddick.

    General Commenteh, i'm pretty sure this is about Zach Braff.
    Its rumored that he cheated on her with Kirsten Dunst (and maybe someone else?, I can't remember) so I think this is about him because I don't think that she was this ANGRY over her breakup with Andy, just more upset (Gardenia is about their relationship)
    Anyway,
    "Somebody told me they saw you somewhere"
    "I would never do those things you did to me"
    "Hadn't you told me you were there the whole time"
    "I know mistakes will haunt you down eventually
    You'll know that when you hit the ground
    Your weakness did you in and dealt me out"

    So yeah, I think it's definitely about Zach.
