Tell me you see
Only light here
Only time will tell me
Must be mistaken
I swear I'm not moving
And only the work I do
Could explain
Unless we're pretending to be

'Cause baby, you're nothing
More than love
Love of my troubled youth
'Cause baby, you're nothing
Baby, you're nothing
But the love of my troubled youth

Welcome to
I said move to me
Wondering if I'm falling
Must not be calling my name
(Not too fast, not too slow)
Two stones together were falling
Must not be holding the reigns again

'Cause baby, you're nothing
More than
The love of my troubled youth
And you're nothing
Baby, you're nothing

'Cause baby, you're nothing
Of my troubled youth

So keep your eye on the screen
It's where you will be
In just a few years

Keep your eye on the screen
It's what you will see
It tells you to hear

Fall right back on me
It's just what I need
To tell you the truth

And keep your eyes on the screen
It's where you will be
In just a few years

'Cause baby, you're nothing
More than
Baby, you're nothing
More than
'Cause baby, you're nothing
More
'Cause baby, you're nothing
More than
The love of my life
The love of my life

    General Commentmaybe he was in love with someone who wanted to be an actress..
    i really don't have a clue.
    just... love haha.
    but this will always be my favorite secret handshake song.
    the first show i saw him play in tyler (texas) he played this song.
    it was quite a few years ago. he looked very different.
    he had long hair and for some reason i remember it being blonde but like i said it was a long time ago.
    useless comment. sorry.

    General CommentPerhaps she reminded him of his childhood, when a young adult still feels dangerous in his own, before he grows up. Maybe he loves her because she made him feel the way that he would like to remember himself. By saying she's nothing, perhaps he's indicating that it's a jealous love, and he's only in it for himself, despite the fact that she is the love of his life.
