Tell my thoughts to resign And lift you from my mind I'm not ready I'm not strong enough To cradle the weight of your love
Just take a minute take a breath Lay down your head on my sunken chest I saw a flicker then just smoke But as you left I was calling your name at the night
Thought we were done Young love would keep us young I thought we were done And young love would keep us young
I thought we fell to the ground I see you whimper with no sound Open my mouth to breath some words of peace But the silence gives nothing back to me
So I'll be a shadow of the flame I lent down to kiss you then erased my name And I'll be a whisper on the wind My hands are shaking from holding so tight for so long
The flame burnt out in our empty hands But now I see it's got nothing to do It's got nothing to do with
You thought we were done Young love would keep us young I thought we were done And young love would keep us young
(Why do I keep falling) I thought we were done (Why do I keep falling) And young love would keep us young (Why do I keep falling) I thought we were done (Why do I keep falling) And young love would keep us young

When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
