I Got Nothin'

  • It's my third cup of coffee
    The fifth time I said I'm sorry
    The sun slowly peakin' through the glasses
    Says we've been up all night

    We both know where this is going
    It's been a long time coming
    Is it really over?
    Is this really goodbye?
    Maybe I should say something
    Maybe you'd change your mind
    Maybe, maybe
    Buy a little more time

    But I got nothing
    No magic words
    To stop your leaving
    To end this hurt
    I'm just blank
    I'm starring into a space
    Prayin' please, please let me think of something
    'Cause I got nothing

    I watch you pack your things
    You look down at your ring
    Slowly slip it off and then
    You lay it on our bed

    Maybe I should pick it up
    And get down on my knees
    Tell you what you wanna hear
    And give you what you need

    But I got nothing
    No magic words
    To stop your leaving
    To end this hurt
    I'm just blank
    I'm starring into a space
    Prayin' please, please let me think of something
    'Cause I got nothing

    You're almost at the door
    And you stop and turn around
    You're eyes are begging me
    Please say something right now

    But I got nothing
    No magic words
    To stop your leaving
    And I can't end this hurt
    I'm just blank
    I'm starring into space
    Praying please, please let me think of something
    'Cause if you go
    I got nothin' Writer/s: CLAY MILLS, DARIUS RUCKER
