"Nothing New" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
I'm going to dress up tonight
I'll look real pretty
For I don't know who
I'll find my own way
Around this great big city
And I'll sit at a bar
And I'm gonna have a drink

I'll leave you to revel
In your youthful yearnings
I know you like to visit them
From time to time
Like a thief I steal
The words you write to her
I take them to my heart
And I wish them to be mine

But this is nothin'
But it ain't nothin'
Oh this is nothin' new
But it ain't nothin'

You long for sweetness
Does mine make you sickly
Or maybe I no longer have
The sweetness you require
There's nothing sweet
About a heart so embittered
It's ugly and it's cold
And tonight it's out for hire

This is nothin' new
But it ain't nothin' here

We live through this
Day after day
Complacency's a curse
But you just can't escape it
I've arrived at a place
Where my tolerance gave way
And I struggle to hold
My head up high
