Compared To Nothing

Album: A View From 3rd Street (1990)
  • It's hard to find a reason
    To keep standing in the rain
    I owe it to my heart to try again

    Now I'm standing on the corner
    In a town that's hard to face
    'Cause it feels like I'm drifting
    Through outer space

    So was it in, was it out
    Tell me what it's all about
    Problems that appear so tall
    Turn out to be so small
    When you're left with nothing at all

    I wanna wake up in the morning
    Above these lonely streets
    And feel you lying next to me

    So was it black, was it white
    Tell me, is it day or night
    Problems that appear so tall
    Turn out to be so small
    Compared to nothing at all

    So many people can tell you what's true
    And the more that you listen
    The more that we lose
    You can feel it disappear

    Was it in, was it out
    Tell me what it's all about
    Problems that appeared so tall
    Turned out to be so small
    Compared to nothing at all
    At all, oh

  • Edward Pearce from Ashford, Kent, EnglandCole is currently the manager for the popular American band Lifehouse aand is heavily involved in the creation of their records.
  • Tim from Denver, CoThis song is from one of the greatest, most underrated albums of all time. Reprise Records really dropped the ball on this one. Every song is better than the one before it. "Start the Car" and "Falling Home" are two other albums by this man that should have done better sales-wise than they did. Jude, you deserved better!
