Something and Nothing

The old war memorial still looks the same
Opposite the dairy on the corner of meadow lane
A place where we grew a place to be young
The place where we threw up when we were drunk

It was something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
But it meant everything to me…

I take my children on my old paper round
Little things they do make me feel proud
Tell them the story of the cigarette factory
And how I watched it burn down in 1970

It was something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
But it meant everything to me…

I haven’t seen you in a long time
People tell me you’re doing fine
Perhaps in the future when the time is right
We can start all over again wouldn’t that be nice..

It’s just something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
Something and nothing
But it means everything to me

It’s only something and nothing
