Nothing & No One

lyrics

I left nineteen in the bottom of an ark
Came back in the middle of a drought
I tried my luck at harvesting the dark
Shaking trees but nothing fell out

I broke my body in a cardboard box
Weighed down by a free man's rage
Nothing hit home like rattling the locks
Longing to return to the cage

Life ain't so hard
Don't want your gold stars
I don't feel too far
From the sun
I've got no hurry and nowhere to be
Cause I've got nothing and no one

Who was in the pocket of the ambulance man
Dangerously fooled by doubt
Waste your time searching for a miracle plan
Find out that you never find out

Happy is a star you have to squint to see
Fading as your dreams come true
We can be anything we want to be
Only if you wanna be you

Life ain't so hard
Don't want your gold stars
I don't feel too far
From the sun
I've got no hurry and nowhere to be
Cause I've got nothing and no one

Can this be the answer, can this really be all?
Repeating til we lose our breath
How can we give meaning to a something so small
Or know when there's nothing left

I want every minute like a gospel song
Every rock a cornerstone
Tired of thinking everything I do is wrong
Tired of feeling so alone

Life ain't so hard
Don't want your gold stars
I don't feel too far
From the sun
I've got no hurry and nowhere to be
Cause I've got nothing and no one
