"Not For Nothing" as written by and Tim Finn....
I was ready for you
I’ll never know how to thank you
Everything that you do
Is setting me free
All the wisdom in the world
Couldn’t penetrate or ring true
If not for my little girl
It’s not for nothing that I,

I was waiting for you
Behind a high wall of poses
Now I look at life through
Your innocent eyes
Teach me how to be a child
You can slip through my defenses
Inhibition running wild
And mass confusion in my senses

Nearer, I really mean sincerer
Open your heart to me
I just wanted to let you know
That I want to be nearer
Let’s make a start together
I couldn’t let you go
I just wanted to let you know

The nearer you are
The clearer I see
The clearer I see
That the nearer you are
That the nearer you are
The happier I will be

I was ready for you
I’ll never know how to thank you
Everything that you do
Is setting me free
All the wisdom in the world
Couldn’t penetrate or ring true
If not for my little girl
It’s not for nothing that I
It’s not for nothing that I
Love you, want you, need you...
