NOTHING TO SAY

[HOOK]

Nothing to say

Nothing to say

 

[VERSE 01]

Let’s have a conversation

About my frustrations

With lyrical inspiration

Cause words are so evasive

 

But let’s face it,

Writing shouldn’t be so complicated

I hate how I can’t seem to stay motivated

 

The world’s full of beauty, brokenness and change, 

But, in my head I’m still trapped inside a cage, 

Where there’s a schism in my lyricism between perfectionism and my creative vision that dictates what I say

 

Now I watch the blinking cursor feelin uneasy

I know it revels in this songs hypocrisy

Cause apparently

I care more about sounding good than sharing meaning

 

[CHORUS]

I don’t have much time

It’s worth more every day

Yet here I am stuck

With nothing to say

 

I’m wrapped in arms of love

In a world that’s filled with pain

Yet here I am lost

With nothing to 

 

[HOOK]

Nothing to say

Nothing to say

 

[VERSE 02]

I wanna be artistic

But I don’t wanna be cryptic

But I can’t be too specific

Cause I want people to listen

 

And I wanna make a record

Where ideas fit together

But each song is its own effort

That can stand without the others  

 

(high) Why is it called selling out to make a tune thats catchy?

Even if I’m clearly far from fame; far from makin money…

I know lyrics that are happy aren’t as deep as dark dramatic ones, 

But joy is hardly shallow; why don’t we sing about that for once?

 

Home’s joy waits across 

A sea of uncertainty… but we’ve 

Settled houses by the shore 

Afraid of that journey

 

Why don’t I speak?

 

[CHORUS]

I don’t have much time

It’s worth more every day

Yet here I am stuck

With nothing to say

 

I’m wrapped in arms of love

In a world that’s filled with pain

Yet here I am lost

With nothing to 

 

[HOOK]

Nothing to say

Nothing to say

 

[BRIDGE]

I know,

Life’s less than easy for most of us 

And we’ll need more than lyrics to cheer us up

But every now and then a song is just enough

To make living a little bit less tough

 

If even one word of my song can warm a heart

If my voice can draw light from the dark

Then I wanna sing, until my breath gives way

Until I got something worthwhile to

 

[HOOK]

Nothing to say

Nothing to say

 

[CHORUS]

I don’t have much time

It’s worth more every day

Yet here I am stuck

With nothing to say

 

I’m wrapped in arms of love

In a world that’s filled with pain

Yet here I am lost

With nothing to 

 

[HOOK]
