lyrics

Nothing
(Gray, McFarland)
©1995 Eclipse America Productions (BMI)

Before I say the words I know you’re gone.
Shoulda just left well enough alone.
You know it’s not the first time that honesty was wrong.
When I promised you the ocean
You said that all you want is devotion
And all the diamonds in the world could never mean so much

And if I had a chance to make it right
I would be there laying by your side
And if a thousand stars would fall tonight
I would buy you a thousand wishes
If you would just forgive me one more time, but she said

Give me love
Give me your sweet devotion
Give me all
Or nothing at all

Before I say the words I know we’re through
And what you didn’t know, well, I’ll be damned, it wouldn’ta hurt you And all these honest words and notions in my heart
Just ain’t worth it, baby. I said it ain’t worth losing you.

And if I had a chance to make it right
Would have used some funky alibi
But instead I’m ruled by foolish pride
And this time, Lord, I should have lied.

Give me love
Give me your sweet devotion
Give me love
Give me all
Or nothing

Sometimes I can’t remember the words that you told me
“If you believe in love, you know the truth will set you free.”
But I don’t want my freedom, if it means that I can’t have you
Standing right next to me.

Give me love
Give me your sweet devotion
Give me all
I need your sweet emotion
Why don’t you give it to me?
Give me love
Give me your sweet devotion
Give me love
Give me all
Or nothing at all

about

Nadir Omowale Detroit, Michigan

“To label Nadir as a neo-soul artist would be neglecting his rock roots; to call him a rock artist would be overlooking his hip-hop and jazz influences. Fully encompassing all the talents that Nadir possesses would be comparable to expanding the mathematical term Pi to its last digit.” – The Michigan Chronicle, Detroit, Michigan ... more
