Nothing on You – lyrics

I would make you coffee every morning
But I wouldn’t know what you take in it
If I did that would have to mean that we’ve said
More than just two words to each other

But I don’t have any to spare when you’re there
They get lost and broken and all tied up
I swallow each line like marshmellows on fire
And then they’re gone and you’re gone

And I wonder what it’s like not to melt every time
You say hi to me
But if I really knew
I would have nothing on you

I would sing you my favourite song
But you wouldn’t know the key
And if you can’t join in then what’s the use in singin’
When there’s no harmony

I can’t remember the words I rehearsed,
It’s like I’m cursed
When I’m around you
If you can’t hear the ends of my sentences
It’s cuz you’re taking my breath away

And I wonder what’s it’s like not to be paralysed
By the flash of your eyes
But if I really knew
I would have nothing on you

I’ve used silencers, muted horns, and jawbreakers
To keep me quiet
Though I want so badly to be heard

I would love to be the star of the city
But I don’t know how to act at a party
I’ve got no class, I can’t dance or make an entrance.
Despite all my plans, I don’t stand a chance.

I wonder what it’s like not to fantasize,
To put you out of my mind
But if I really knew
I would have nothing on you

I would have nothing, I would have nothing
Nothing, nothing on you
