You've got nothing to lose

You Got Nothing To Lose
Copyright 2011, words & music, Tonya Terry-Lance

Verse One
Oh, you’re downtown staring at a bottle, thinking ‘bout a woman that just walked away.
Starting over, well, it just ain’t easy, but here’s a little tip that might help you today.

Chorus:
You’ve got nothing....
You got nothing, baby, nothing to lose.
You’ve got nothing....
When you’ve lost everything, you got nothing to lose.

Verse Two
You had a good job, but you lost it. No money comin’ in and the bills are due.
Thinking ‘bout going in a new direction....It’s gonna be hard, so it’s hard to choose

Chorus:
You’ve got nothing....
You got nothing, baby, nothing to lose.
You’ve got nothing....
When you’ve lost everything, you got nothing to lose.

Break:
By & by, you never know ‘til you try....Why not just give it a shot.
Sweetheart, you never know ‘til you start....so, just take a step if it’s all that you got.
All that you got....Whoa...

Verse Three
Your best friend sold you down the river. He took over the job and the woman you had.
You’ve been cheated but you’re not an avenger. You’d like to pull the trigger but he ain’t worth the lead.

Chorus:
You’ve got nothing....
You got nothing, baby, nothing to lose.
You’ve got nothing....
When you’ve lost everything, you got nothing to lose.

Chorus:
You’ve got nothing....
You got nothing, baby, nothing to lose.
You’ve got nothing....
When you’ve lost everything, you got nothing to lose.

V1
I built my life like solid granite, had good friends to hang around.
Made my own way without you in it. Thought I was all settled down.
But you found a crack in this empty home and you’re breaking those walls
Stone by stone.

V2
Within those walls I felt protected. Didn’t think I needed anyone.
‘til you came along and baby, wrecked it, now those walls are nearly gone.
Brick by brick, one by one, you’re breaking those walls…
Stone by stone.

Chorus:
Yeah, those walls I built had stood for years
And I made them strong through my sweat and tears
But like a wrecking ball you broke every fear
And the demolition is almost done
You’re breaking those walls stone by stone.

V3
When I met you, I felt the earth move. But when we kissed I felt it quake.
I never knew what really hit me until those walls began to shake.
Now, I just can’t stand to be alone ‘cause you’re breaking those walls stone by stone.

Chorus:
Yeah, those walls I built, had stood for years
And I made them strong through my sweat and tears
But like a wrecking ball you broke every fear
And the demolition is almost done
You’re breaking those walls stone by stone.
