"Counterpoint" as written by Matthew Cocksedge, Richard Boardman and James Cook....
Late at night, I'll run through streets and empty corridors.
I'll find my counterpoint, inside a red room locked behind a door.

I keep holding my head up, holding it up.
Holding my head up, holding it up.
But you just don't come back, around.
It seems to me that we will never be.

And tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today.
Just tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today.

Late at night, I'll run through the streets and empty corridors.
I'll find my counterpoint, inside a red room locked behind a door. Behind a door.

And someone tell me,
Nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today.
Just tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today.

Oh, everything I want.
Oh, everything I'm not.
Is suddenly gone.

And tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today.
And someone tell me, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today, today, today, today.

Today
Today
Today

Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing

And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing
And someone tell me,
Nothing

    My InterpretationThere's obviously been a break-up and he's metaphorically running around- looking for some kind of explanation.
    He's looking for consolation, that, in fact, nothing's wrong.

    General Commenti agree, its about a breakup and hes possibly trying to get over the fact about it by the "nothings wrong, nothings wrong" part

    General Commenti'm not sure why this would be about a breakup.

    General CommentHe could be worried about someone...maybe they are suicidal or bi-polar...the repeating of just tell me nothing's wrong today really emphasizes their worry that their not hearing from that other person.
