"Nothing Left To Lose" as written by Kato Khandwala, Ben Phillips and Taylor Momsen....
I was only 19, you were 29
It's just 10 years, but it's such a long time
In a heartbeat, I would do it all again

Late night sex, smokin' cigarettes
I try real hard, but I can't forget
Now in a heartbeat, I would do it all again

Now I see that you and me were never meant
Never meant to be now
Now I'm lost somewhere

Lost between Elvis and suicide
Ever since the day we died, well
I've got nothing left to lose

After Jesus and Rock 'n' Roll
Couldn't save my immoral soul, well
I've got nothing left
I've got nothing left to lose

Callin' out sins just to pass the time
My life goes by in the blink of an eye
I know you want me
I was only lookin' for a friend

And everything that I was
And everything that I've become
Just falls into the end and

Now I see that you and me were never meant
Were never meant to be now
Now I'm lost somewhere

Lost between Elvis and suicide
Ever since the day we died, well
I've got nothing left to lose

After Jesus and rock 'n' roll
Couldn't save my immoral soul, well
I've got nothing left
I've got nothing left to lose

Now I see that you and me were never meant
Never meant to be now
Now I'm lost somewhere

Lost between Elvis and suicide
Ever since the day we died, well
I've got nothing left to lose

After Jesus and rock 'n' roll
Couldn't save my immoral soul, well
I've got nothing left
I've got nothing left to lose

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is IMO pretty obvious in the lyrics: she's lost everything and therefore has nothing left to lose to do whatever she wants.

    General CommentI was only nineteen you were twenty nine.

    I'm not sure if this song can be about herself when Taylor is only 17 years old as of right now.

    She only co-wrote some songs on the album which is still cool but, it could be someone else's story. If I remember right the other singer (the guitarist) helped her write the album.

    So does anyone know?

    General CommentIt's about two people not meant to be together. She wanted him. He didn't want her. Good song.
