"Same Dumb Excuse (Nothing To Lose)" as written by and Claude/bahncke Kelly....
I should be brave with nothing to lose,
That's how I was until the day I met you,
Now I'm afraid that I don't know what to do,
A couple of things I've really got to tell you.

Dive off a cliff, jump from a plane,
Oh, it's not easy other than what I've got to say,
Go for a swim, with sharks in the sea,
Oh, it's not easy other than me telling it to you straight,

I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I can't keep using the same dumb excuse
'Cause, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you

To get you to laugh, to get you to smile,
To get you to tell the world that you're on my side,
Make me a star at least in your eyes,
Lets take on the world, but first,
I got to make you mine,

Dive off a cliff, jump from a plane,
Oh, it's not easy other than what I've got to say,
Go for a swim, with sharks in the sea,
Oh, it's not easy other than me telling it to your face.

I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I cant keep using the same dumb excuse
'Cause, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you

Though the words ain't coming out,
But tonight, it's going down
I should be brave, with nothing to lose,
That's how I was until the day I met you,

I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose but you,
If I just say nothing, you'll never hear the truth,
I can't keep using the same dumb excuse
'Cause, I've got nothing to lose,
I've got nothing to lose
But you

Though the words ain't coming out,
But tonight, it's going down
I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose but you.

    General Commenthe really likes a girl but he's too shy or nervous or whatever to approach her
    and really he's got nothing to lose since they aren't even together, but he still can't bring himself to tell her how he feels

    General CommentI agree with soulglowactivatur, except I also think that the two are best friends and he wants to tell her how he feels, and when he says "I got nothing to lose, but you" that means that their friendship could be over in a split second, and the truth that he needs to tell her is killing him inside and he is afraid to tell her, which is the "Dive off a cliff part".

    Anyways I love this song, and my interpretation pretty much sums up my current situation, so maybe that's why I see this song like that.
