"All of This and Nothing" as written by Richard/butler Butler and Roger Nicholas/kilburn Morris....
a phonebook full of accidents
a girl to drive your car
a suit to wear on mondays
and a coat a magazine
a heavy rain a holiday
a painting of the wall
a knife a fork and memories
a light to see it all
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
hey i never meant that stuff
i want to turn you round
dominoes a pack of cards
a picture of the queen
a dress to wear on sundays
and a handle for the door
a letter that i sent for you
a note you left for me
a wave a pack of cigarettes
a pocket full of beads
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
hey i never meant that stuff
i want to turn you on
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
hey i never meant that stuff
i want to turn you round
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
hey i never meant that stuff
i want to turn you on
the sound of people getting drunk
a ceiling and a sky
a bank that's full of promises
a telephone that lies
a visit from your doctor
he crawls in through the door
a mirror you can look in
so that you know where you are
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
hey i never meant that stuff
i want to turn you round
you didn't leave me anything
that i can understand
now i'm left with all of this
a room full of your trash

    General CommentIts about anything you think it might be....I'm crying my eyes out thinking of my loved ones who committed suicide. I love this song but can't listen to it.

    General CommentWell this song is about break-up/divorce? Well at least in my opinion. I love this song it's so great. I love the last line "now I'm left with all of this a roomful of your trash".

    General CommentSeems pretty obvious it's about either a breakup or a suicide ("you didn't leave me anything / that i can understand"); Not so sure I get the doctor "crawling in through the door" though...
