"You Haven't Told Me Anything" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin and Richard David Hughes....
In the cold gray room
One afternoon, one afternoon
What are you gonna do
Having your way
But there's nothing new

You took a beautiful thing
Pull off a wing, pull off a wing
A safety pin
It never shone quite as bright again

But you haven't told me anything
That I didn't already know
No you haven't said a single thing
That I didn't already know

It's a thing I love
Stuck in the mud, stuck in the mud
Stuck in a rut
Am I a piece in your puzzle or
A paper cut

Same time next week
A kiss on the cheek, kiss on the cheek
And say all done
Everything's tied up nice and neat

But you haven't told me anything
That I didn't already know
No you haven't said a single thing
That I didn't already know

I feel for you
I really do
Nothing turns out
Like you want it too
No words can mend
This fix I'm in
Hearing those words
That I'll never play
Right between the eyes
I don't feel a thing

But you haven't told me anything
That I didn't already know
No you haven't said a single thing
That I didn't already know

No you haven't told me anything
No you haven't told me anything
No you haven't told me anything
No you haven't told me anything

Anyone hearing anything different?

    My InterpretationSounds more like...

    "Everything I love" rather than "It’s a thing I love" in the third verse after the first chorus.

    General CommentLyric corrections:

    As Sir Brock mentioned, it's "Everything I love" not "It's a thing I love".

    Also, "No words can mend / this fix I'm in / give me your WORST I won't even blink" and it's "I hang on your words" not "having your way" in the first verse (how on earth did someone mishear that?!).

    On a side note, this song is fucking amazing.

    General Commentthis song is probably about a couple who has a hard communication. the girl had make a mistake or have a problem, but she didnt want to tell or with her boy. and whenever they're around each other, she always talk about the same things, (But you havent told me anything That I didnt already know), and so it's hard to get to know her. and he told her that he feel for her and he won't even blink if she tell him everything, maybe about her problem or anything else.

    hmmm.... it's a good song and the interpretations are all my opinion and what i think it is about.
