"Nothing is Real" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Hey, anybody in this world?
Can you talk to me a while?
Find a reason for it all?
'Cause I've keep thinking backwards
To a place I've never been,
To a home that never was
It's like I'm losing it again
And it takes so long to say these words
Can you wait that long for me?

Hey, nothing is real, it's all what you believe
Something you dream inside your head
You know how I feel because it's just you and me
Something I need to call my own
To feel and call my own

Duck inside this empty room,
And I'm waiting for the sun to come to me
Someday, I'm gonna get this right
Gonna find a better way, I wanna lead another life
I wanted to let you know me,
But I'm trapped inside the fear
And I never said a word though you always seemed to hear
When I take so long to say these words,
Yeah, you wait so long for me

Hey, nothing is real, it's all what you believe
Something you dream inside your head
You know how I feel because it's just you and me
Something I need to call my own
To feel and call my own

Hey, nothing is real, it's all what you believe
It's something you dream inside your head
You know how I feel because it's just you and me
Something I need to call my own

Nothing is real, it's all you believe
It's something you dream inside your head
Nothing is real, it's all what you believe
It's something I need to call my own
To feel and call my own

    General CommentJohnny said he went back to the neighborhood he grew up in and he said this song is about going back home but it not being home because of how much things change over time. Really great song

    General CommentI like the existentialism in this song: "Nothing is real, it's all what you believe, something you dream inside your head".

    General CommentYou're right Mike, Johnny did mention that in response to a question about Nothing is Real in the Aug. 31, 2010 Goo Goo Dolls Ustream.

    It's an amazing song and I love it as much as Black Balloon. I really wish that @googoodolls would play Nothing is Real live and tell us more about the evolution of this song.
