"Nothing" as written by Adam Perry, Giles Perry, Mark Andrew Chapman, Daniel Philip Carter and Jason Keith Perry....
Nothing
And nothing's where you're at
When you ain't got something
You'll never get it back
It's coming on like a drug
The universal power of one
But it don't mean nothing
If it all comes undone

Fly away
If you fly away
You might die today
If you fly
If you fly

Give me some love
Give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Give me some love
Give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

You're left with nothing
And nothing's what you got
When you ain't got no-one, no-one
You could've had the lot
And if it's over today
You'll never get that thing you had together,
No way
You only get it once

Fly away
If you fly
If you fly

Give me some love
Give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Give me some love
Give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

We ain't got nothing
We ain't got nothing
Our days are numbered
I don't remember how you found it
You will never feel the same
And forever have to take it for granted,
Don't remember our mistake

So give me some love
So give me some skin
If we ain't got that,
Then we ain't got much,
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Give me some love
So give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Give me some love
So give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

So give me some love
So give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Give me some love
So give me some skin
If we ain't got that
Then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

    General Commentthis song's guitar and music is amazing and as for the words they are so true, I don't think its immature ship as other users have stated but more along the lines of life in general, if you haven't got skin or love you haven't got anything because all humans need skin and love to be happy, look at suicide cases where its been found that people haven't had any love but suffered abuse from families where love should be or where partners have died and so the widow etc has followed in the same way. I can also see the relationship side of the lyrics where it says "if its over today you'll never get that thing you had together" because even when couples have spit and tried again it takes a lot to revive that old magic and spark which was once between you, you split for a reason and the human heart and mind doesnt ever let yuo forget that and only couples who are really REALLY meant to be together will get past that and if they where meant to be together wouldnt have split at all. This song is amazing and I rate it really highly which is why ive typed so much about it. From the moment I heard it I fell in love with it so much, the music just struck me as amazing [even though starbucks was a crappy follow up single!] :)

    General Commentwell if u have the album this comes from it actually explains the song in the sleeve. u can go research that urself.
    this song is really rockin but its different from the other songs on the album, this one is so much harder than the rest, i think A just tried to appeal to other audiences apart from punkers. i think they really wish they were born in california aswell.
