Lyrics

Nothin

Written By: Josh Ott

(Verse 1)
You're a spot No
You're a stain,
You're on my soul,
You're on my brain,
You're in the walls
You're in the air,
You're in my lungs
You're everywhere,
You're in the ground,
You're in the sky,
You're there when I'm born and
You're there when I die
You're in my blood
I feel you rise like, Mercuy

(Pre Chorus 1)
You never looked so good to me
Than when I'm drownin in misery, Yeah

(Chorus)
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do

(Verse 2)
I want your thoughts
Everything that you think
I want it all, the kitchen sink
I want your blood
I want your sweat
Don't want you dry
You gotta get wet, So
Come right in
The waters fine
Just one word and you'll always be mine
You're always, You're Always, You're ALWAYS

(Pre Chorus 2)
You never looked so good to me
Than when you're drownin in misery, Yeah

(Chorus)
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do

(Bridge)
NOTHIN!
NOTHIN!
I'M NOTHIN!
NOTHIN!
NOTHIN!

(Pre Chorus 3)
You never looked so good to me
You got me drownin in misery, yeah
For you I'd trade my very life
There's nothin that i wouldn't do to make you mine

(Chorus)
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
There's nothin that I wouldn't do
