Nothing's Working

Written by Billy Strings (William Apostol) & Lindsay Lou

Absolutely nothing
Nothing for to show
She’s feeling helpless
like there’s nowhere left to go

Things she set out to do
She made sure were done
She’s feeling dismal
But she’s not the only one

Take time to listen to the quiet ones
Watch how the pain lives
underneath the skin
Forgotten words and lost
love won’t make the grade

On a lonesome journey
Tryin’ to stay high
Put another coin in and
stop to wave goodbye
Praying to the hologram
High up in the sky
Is it for justice or is it just for the crime

Take time to listen to the quiet ones
Watch how the pain lives
underneath the skin
Forgotten words and lost
love won’t make the grade

Killers on the TV
Writing on the wall
How could such a kind heart
take such a heavy fall

Absolutely nothing
Nothing for to show
Heart and guts against the wind
and nowhere left to go

Take time to listen to the lonely ones
Watch how the rain gives
up a chance to swim
Burn the broken bridges and
we’ll build them up again
