"What If I Was Nothing" as written by and Rob Graves Jason Costa....
Just let it go, don’t want to haunt you anymore
I can’t be sure I know just what we’re fight for
I know that you’re scared and that you’re thinking I may go
I’m not leaving, I’m not leaving

And if you’re thinking I might, might be lead astray
Just remember this one question

What if I was nothing, what if this is true?
What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you
So what if I was angry, what did you think I’d do?
I told you that I love you, girl, I’m nothing without you

I know it’s hard, it seems that we’ve worked at this so long
Soft and foolish pride that tells us we’re not wrong
I hear your voice, you tell me that you’ll never go
And I believe it, I believe it

And if you’re thinking I might, might be lead astray
Just remember this one question

What if I was nothing, what if this is true?
What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you
So what if I was angry, what did you think I’d do?
I told you that I love you, girl, I’m nothing without you

And we can keep this going on, we’ll make it work some way
And every step, it makes us stronger every day

And if you’re thinking I might, might be lead astray
Just remember this one question

What if I was nothing, what if this is true?
What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you
So what if I was angry, what did you think I’d do?
I told you that I love you, girl, I’m nothing without you

What if I was nothing, what if this is true?
What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you
So what if I was angry, what did you think I’d do?
I told you that I love you, girl, I’m nothing without you

    My InterpretationIt's only the question that's important here, I think. 'What if I were nothing without you?'
    I think he's talking about the feeling people can get sometimes when they feel like the whole purpose of their life is to be with their significant other.
    Everything they do, they do so that the other will appreciate or take comfort in. And that's Love, isn't that so?
    So there's no question of him leaving her, since he would have no purpose without her. He would be nothing without her. That's why his Love will keep him from ever leaving her.
    That's what I think he's saying anyway. :)

    My InterpretationI agree with both, but it's not only a question of loosing someone or purposes in life.. i mean.. it also has to do with it, but what the singer is tryng to say is that when you are so in a relationship you have to work to make it worth ,... i see it all the time.. people get together and wait for love to rain over them. Patetic. no one is perfect .. so if you truly love someone you have to work with Him/Her to "keep things going on" couse if you let the imperfection of the other takeover yourself you are gonna stay alone for the rest of your life :) this way , at the end of a relationship, you can say " I gave all of me and I have no regret " and after all that the only question you can do to the partner "am I something to you?" or, "What if I was nothing ?" . anyway , beautifull song ,, one of my favorite, lyrically and instrumentally rich ;)

    My OpinionIn my opinion, I believe this song should be interpreted as: "What if I was nothing to you, miss trust".
    "You" meaning A loved woman, for a prolonged period of time.
    "What if I was nothing" meaning what if I as the man, whom to fail you or yet to lose you to another because "You" decided to cheat or to find love else where. "I"exemplifying the utter ultimate end of one's being within a relationship.

    My InterpretationThis song talks about the need for someone special in your life, but it could could also refer to the feelings of depression. That loss of someone you love. I've told many that I've loved the, but I really don't know why they walk away.
