Nothing's That Great

Album: Settle Down (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The song's lyric, "I thought I had grown, become more mature, but now I am sure that I'm as dumb as I ever was," is Nunes' favorite line from Settle Down. She explained to American Songwriter magazine: "I just feel like we're constantly looking back at our previous blunders trying to convince ourselves that we're smarter now and would never make that mistake again, but most of the time history repeats itself, even if that history was a week ago."
