Song Lyrics from the Villagers

This beautiful song is sad and sweet. The words alone don’t do it justice, but were worthy of including on everydaypoet.

Nothing Arrived
by Villagers

Savannah scatters and the seabird sings
So why should we fear what travel brings?
What were we hoping to get out of this?
Some kind of momentary bliss?

I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived

It’s our dearest ally, it’s our closest friend
It’s our darkest blackout, it’s our final end
My dear sweet nothing, let’s start anew
From here on in it’s just me and you

I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived

Well, I guess it’s over
I guess it’s begun
It’s a loser’s table, but we’ve already won
It’s a funny battle, it’s a constant game
I guess I was busy when nothing came

I guess I was busy…
(When nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…
(When nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…
(And nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…

I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived
I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived
Nothing arrived
