All Of Nothing

Ani DiFranco

(thanks ronnie, jacob, sarah)

He had all kinds of reasons
Why she just couldn't love him
She was just too young
She was too high strung
She was afriad of commitment

But all of the theories
That he recited
Played like a song
Of the unrequited

Baby, how long's it been now
Since you held me to your chest
And told me that you loved me
More than all the rest
It's such a shame you won't talk to me
'cause i won't repeat after you

I believe that there is more to life
We could've loved eachother through
But i was afraid of commitment
When it came to you

If there is one instinct
I can't get with at all
It's the urge to kill something beautiful
And make it all your own

Are you just too young?
Are you too high strung?
To actually follow through
On all the love you said you had
Baby, i never lied to you

Is all of nothing
The best we can do
