Nothing To Give

Album: To Lose My Life… (2008)

  • You talked me to sleep last night
    I hadn't felt that sad in years
    Your eyes like glass mistakes
    They moved me close to tears
    You speak those favorite fables which I'm yet to live
    And casually confirm my fears
    That I've got nothing to give

    I wish I could say that I've got no regrets
    But saying that would be one more to pile on my desk
    I wish I could say I've clung to time like gold

    But as you said goodbye, I almost died
    I almost died

    I take it back, all of it
    Those names I called myself
    The heroes of my childhood
    Like hardbacks on the shelf
    I take it back those promises I made to everyone
    I'm falling through a ribbon last
    Before I'd learned to run

    I wish I could say that I've got no regrets
    But saying that would be one more to pile on my desk
    I wish I could say I've clung to time like gold

    But as you said goodbye, I almost died
    I almost died
    I almost died Writer/s: CHARLES CAVE, HARRY MCVEIGH, JACK BROWN
