"Doesn't Mean Anything" as written by Alicia Augello-cook and Kerry Brothers Jr.....
Used to dream of being a millionaire, without a care
But if I'm seeing my dreams and you aren't there
'Cause it's over
That just wont be fair
Darling
Rather be a poor woman living on the street
No food to eat
'Cause I don't want no pie if I have to cry
'Cause it's over
When you said goodbye!

All at once
I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Now that you're gone
From afar, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Since you're gone

Now I see myself through different eyes
It's no surprise!
Being alone will make you realize
When it's over!
All in love is fair I shoulda been there
I shoulda been there, I shoulda shoulda

All at once
I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Now that you're gone
From afar, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Since you're gone

I know I pushed you away
What can I do that would save our love
Take these material things
They don't mean nothing
It's you that I want

All at once
I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Now that you're gone
From afar
Seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Since you're gone I shoulda been there
I shoulda been there, I shoulda, I shoulda

All at once
I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Now that you're gone
From afar
Seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything
Since you're gone

    General Commenti find the lyrics quite trite, but got the song on loop cuz her delivery and the low-keyness of the arrangements is catchy.

    General CommentListening to this song really makes me think about what I'm doing. I've left my family, friends, and partner to work in a different country, and while the financial rewards are much greater (to the point where I'm booking flights for travel every month), it still feels very sad, lonely, and depressing.

    General Commentthe words to this song conjur up images of someone who has become successful and has lost their love and are lamenting that their success doesn't mean anything without that person by their side...or for that matter... at all! I don't know much about Alicia Keys personal life and relationships... but I wonder if perhaps this is something that she has experiences as a lot of her songs are quite autobiographical

    General CommentI agree I think that it's someone who was in a relationship and on the road to fame and fortune but something went wrong in the relationship and he left. Now she sees that the fame and fortune is nothing because she doesn't have him anymore so she minus well have nothing

    General CommentIt really "Doesn't Mean Anything" when your 4th CD sounds just like your first... still whining over some guy who dumped you 8 years ago? At first we felt sorry for you, Alicia... now get over it already!
