"Nothing" as written by and Nikka Costa....
It's late in the evening
And you're breathing with someone else
You come home to call me
And I ask you what you've
Been doing with yourself
And you say nothing at all
You say nothing at all

You flight is longer that usual
And you conscience ain't no company
I'm there smiling and warm I missed you so
And can't wait to show you how I feel
But you feel nothing at all
You feel nothing at all

There we were
Never strangers before
There was a light that shined on us
But now there's nothing at all

You should've taken a look around
Before you laid that woman down
You better get a hold of yourself
Cause there's a woman here
Who's willing to try

Weeks go by
And you mind seems preoccupied
I feel a piece missing here
But when I ask you about what's going on
You say it's all me my dear
So I thought nothing at all
I thought nothing at all

You should've taken a look around
Before you laid that woman down
You better get a hold of yourself
Cause there's a man in you
About to die
With nothing
With nothing

    General Commentawesome...
    fells like she's singing 'bout my relationship wth somebody I realy care about...
    Oh God , I cry everytime I'm listening to it... damn silly

    *There we were
    Never strangers before
    There was a light that shined on us
    But now there's nothing at all*

    however...beautifull song... will last in my mind for a looong time...

    General CommentI love the part where she sings "cause there's a man in you about to die." It's how i felt with my ex. I tried to hold on like "there's a woman here that's wiling to try." and he slowly started to become someone different. so the line "cause there's a man in you about to die" it's like him not being who i know. the boy i knew is gone. I guess in this song she's still hanging onto him by a string.
