There was one heartbreak
Led to a hundred
Little mistakes that
Followed me down to where
I like awake
With nothing but time

And there's a girl
Born into light
Who followed her heart
But her heart wasn't right
So she gave it a name
And she walks off that pain

It'll leave her in time
Nothing but time

Life is a long line
Of talk of wars
We want to be upright
But we're down on all fours
Though you know it means nothing
You just can't ignore
The nickel and dime

And the dream is novocaine
The way to survive it
Is to think past the pain
Til you can't even feel that
Nothing will heal that
Nothing but time

I was born into nothing
I've nothing to offer
I can't offer nothing but time

Though it's left unsaid
Sometimes you think that you're better off dead
But you're better off here
Safe in this bed
With nothing but time

And outside the world fights
And bullies each other
It feels good to leave them behind

I was born into nothing
I've nothing to offer
I can't offer nothing but time

Nothing but time
