From the recording Zig Zag
I wake up to a new day, a hundred thousand more heartbeats
Struggle in the fight against the comfort of my sheets
Well I feel nothing in the air today, it’s neither cool nor warm
I see no trace of my smiling face, it’s the calm before the storm
So I’ll go back to bed, not worry my head for there’s nothing left to do
But smell your skin, watch you grin and snuggle up close to you
For I know nothing’s more frustrating than this nothingness I feel
At least, my dear, I have you near, and that is something real.
Baby you’re the something in my nothing
When I close my eyes and want to hide away
Honey, you’re the something that I hold onto
‘Cause baby, nothing’s better than you.
It’s easy to feel low in life when there’s no wind in your sail
When it’s all for naught and your dreams get caught
And all your work is to no avail
But it’s not about the riches or being the biggest star
Nothing’s better than someone loving you for who you are.
There are no answers here, yeah that’s for sure
But what I know is when that nothing comes a knockin’ at my door
I won’t be sad, I won’t be scared, oh, I won’t be blue.
As long as I can live out this life with you.
