Nothing Without Love
Nate Ruess Lyrics


I am nothing without love
I'm but a ship stuck in the sand
Some would say that I'm all alone
But I am, I'm nothing without love

I wanna hold her in my arms
But she feeling low she feeling sad
I would take credit for what's wrong
But I am, I'm nothing without love

Three years at sea after the storm
And this sinking ship that love had put me on
God I wish a gust of wind would come and carry me home
But I, I got nowhere to go

Now here you show up with the force of a wave
And so I'm setting my sail, I'm headed for the empire state
Hey hey Lord, I don't want to lose this one, she make me feel whole
You know I am, I am nothing without love

Oh baby show me a sign
Send up a signal, that everything's fine
Come on slide up right here by my side
You know that I, I want to rest in your light

Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na (I wanna rest in your life) Hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey, na na na ooh oh
Na na na hey

I am nothing without love
I'm just these thoughts without a pen
And I would take credit for this song
But I am nothing without love

Oh! Baby show me a sign
Send up a signal, that everything's fine
Watch this, come on, come on, come on, come on right by my side
Don't you know that I, don't you know that I
I want to rest in your light
I want to rest in your light
I want to rest in your light
'Cause I am, I am nothing without love

Hello there. It's been awhile. Quite awhile. I figured I'd happily take a quick break from recording (warmly, might I add) my very first album and give you a little intel on the song that you're hopefully about to listen to (and maybe even watch!). 

Here are the facts:

- The song is called "Nothing Without Love."

- A lot of times songs come to me in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping, or while I'm driving. This one showed up in the shower. 

- It was recorded with Jeff Bhasker and Emile Haynie (both worked on the album Some Nights as well as "Just Give Me A Reason" and "Headlights").

- A lot of it was made in a house that we rented that wasn't supposed to be a recording studio, but we turned it into one anyways. 

- I remember taking a trip upstate to finish the lyrics, and returning thinking that I'd finally been able to say everything I'd ever been feeling in that moment, and it's applied to my life in so many different ways ever since.

- This is probably my favorite song I've ever written. The one I've listened to the most on repeat. And I can't pinpoint what it is about it that makes its so special to me. Which makes me love it even more. 

Enough rambling. I'm dying for you to hear - and I should probably get back to work. 

Thank you for your patience and putting up with me. I love what I do. And I wouldn't do it if it wasn't for you guys. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do. See you very soon.

P.S. Last fact: That water tank I was in was where they shot the last scene in "Titanic". It was freezing, and after 4 hours in there, I too was about to sink.

My girlfriend suggested this song, One of the most beautiful and heart touching songs I have ever heard.
This song deserves so much more recognition.
Beautiful song!

I feel like it deserves better, I think people just want him back in Fun so bad it's hard to admit when he's got a good song without Jack or Andrew
