Nothing Arrived
Villagers Lyrics


Savanna 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 a new
From here all in is 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 losers' 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 (when nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy (when nothing arrived)

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

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

"I waited for something; and something died / So I waited for nothing; and nothing arrived. "
That speaks to me, so intimately. . . . It speaks such soft volumes of my life.

TCK

Stop waiting and go make it happen. Go take it.

Shena Henderson

Same here!

Burton Keeble

Me too! Well said.

Bad Bitch

Jeriel Baker 😕

This version is just so much more intimate.

Beatrice SassyQueen

I was thinking the same thing!

After the 30th time you listen to this song, if you feel the lyrics internally to begin with. If you've been waiting for something, anything, for years, and have been instead greeted with nothing, in bountiful plenty, and feel the depths of that chasm, this seems to help calm the fears.. Myself, I see no way out of resigning that I will die alone. Next step is figuring out how not to hate being alive, because it's gonna be a long fucking ride that I'm not stepping off of.

Wow, I read these comments and I couldnt help but view this song in a whole different perspective. These comments hit me like a train and I will forever be grateful. I never thought 3 minutes and 39 seconds could change my life so much
