You Gave Me Nothing

Album: Record Collection (2010)
  • That's the last time I'll be hypnotized
    I'll be victimized, oh oh oh
    All the things you used to say to me
    Just to get your way, oh oh oh

    I reached out for your hand
    But you threw it all away
    I'm gonna make you understand
    That you threw it all away

    And if you loved me, you never told me
    You've got some things to figure out
    And if you loved me, you never showed me
    I've got some things to tell you 'bout

    You're not my baby
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    You're not my baby,
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    And I tried
    And I tried
    But you gave me nothing that I could hold on to

    Now I know that you were in disguise
    Only told me lies, oh oh oh
    Never really looked me in the eyes
    Better say goodbye, oh oh oh

    I reached out for your hand
    But you threw it all away
    I'm gonna make you understand
    That you threw it all away

    And if you loved me, you never told me
    You've got some things to figure out
    And if you loved me, you never showed me
    I've got some things to tell you 'bout

    You're not my baby
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    You're not my baby,
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    And I tried
    And I tried
    But you gave me nothing that I could hold on to

    You'll never know
    How it feels to be me, how it feels to be me, oh oh oh
    I'll never know
    How it feels to be you, how it feels to be you, oh oh oh
    You'll never know
    How it feels to be me, how it feels to be me, oh oh oh
    I'll never know
    How it feels to be you, how it feels to be you, oh oh oh

    You're not my baby
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    You're not my baby,
    'Cause you gave me nothing to hold on to
    And I tried
    And I tried
    But you gave me nothing that I could hold on to
