The Script – Nothing (Acoustic) Lyrics

They say I’m better off now than I ever was with her
As they take me to my local down the street
I’m smiling but I’m dying trying not to drag my feet
[Verse 2]
They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
But after one too many, I know that I’m never
Only they can’t see where this is gonna end
They all think I’m crazy but to me it’s perfect sense
[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind, turn it all around
And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
So I dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard was nothing
[Verse 3]
So I stumble there, along the railings and the fences
I know if I faced her face, that she’ll come to her senses
Every drunk step I take leads me to her door
If she sees how much I’m hurting, she’ll take me back for sure
[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind, turn it all around
And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
So I dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard was nothing
[Post-Chorus]
She said nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Oh, I got nothing
I got nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
[Bridge]
Ohh, sometimes love’s intoxicating
Ohh, you’re coming down, your hands are shaking
When you realize there’s no one waiting
[Interlude]
Am I better off dead? [Verse 1]
Am I better off dead? They say I’m better off now than I ever was with her
[Chorus]
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over the town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind, turn it all around
And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
So I dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard was nothing
[Post-Chorus]
She said nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Oh, I got nothing
I got nothing
Oh, I wanted words but all I heard was nothing
Ohh I got nothing
[Outro]
(I got nothing)
I got nothing
I got nothing Am I better off a quitter? Am I better off a quitter?
