We are made from chemicals
But what holds us together is much more than that
You are strong, so much stronger than me
All along, because you are everything and I am nothing

We spend our summers writing songs
Of how we never make it on our own
But here we are
And I surrender
I’m running thin
You were right, because you are everything and I am nothing

We are made from chemicals
You are strong, so much stronger than me
All along, because you are everything and I am nothing

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song with all my heart because it reminds me of someone very important to me. The lines "you are everything and I am nothing" really just hits me as the singer is admitting that the other person is so much better than them as they are "nothing", because that's how I feel about this very important person.
