Lyrics

Nothing At All

Written By: Connor Raus

hanging out,
in my bedroom,
thinking bout,
making out with you
under covers,
secrets unfold
stories that wait,
to be told
I want you more,
than you can believe
Don't say nothing,
just imagine me
feeling you,
breathing you
for the first time,
not for the last time

it feels right
it feels good
I think that now
is the time to say
I loved you always
always I will
so lets step back

Don't say this means
Nothing at All
Don't Say this means
Nothing at All
tell me it's worth falling
head over heels for
and not that it's
Nothing at All

anyone can fool around,
but i'm not just about,
getting down
I'll breath you in
I'll breath you out
nothing good can come
from stoping now

Nothing At All

Written By: Connor Raus

1st: Hanging out
in my bedroom
thinking about
making out
with you
under covers
secrets unfold
stories that wait
to be told
I wan't you more
than you can believe
don't say nothing
just imagine me
breathing you
feeling you
not for the first time
and not for the last time

Pre-Chorus: it feels right
it feels good
I think now's the time to say
I loved you always
always I will
so let's step back

Chorus: don't say this means
nothing at all
don't say this means
nothing at all
tell me it's worth falling
head over heels for
and not that it's
nothing at all

2nd: anyone can
fool around
but i'm not just about
getting down
I'll breath you in
I'll breath you out
nothing good can come
from stopping now

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge: I know, you know
what we both just want to feel
promise, heartbreak
nothing sucks it's no big deal
confused, afraid
it's enough to cry
cause we live and we die
and we laugh and we cry
it's always something
it's always something

Chorus x2
