Nothing Without Love - Nate Ruess



The Experience: I'm nothing without love... You need to love, but what happens when you're alone and on your own. Can you still love? Can you still be happy? Ask the loners who still haven't given up on love...



Music video: Nate Ruess is alone amid the wreckage of what turns out to be his piano. His love song didn't work out, and now he's alone. But he's still yearning, still searching. He hasn't given up. And when she finally finds him, he realizes what the problem was. His piano re-materializes, but now he knows that he shouldn't try to play this song. Because it's not his to control. It's theirs. And it's too deep and too powerful to fit inside a song.

The Meaning of Nothing Without LoveThree years at sea after the storm and this sinking ship-love you put me on. Nate Ruess is afloat after a shipwreck, dead in the water after three years of loneliness, and barely holding onto life and his dream... God, I wish a gust of wind would come and carry me home but I, I got nowhere to go. But he does hold on. He catches the wave that takes him back to her. And he rests in her life. It's a great story about life with and without love. Maybe the only catch is one line towards the beginning: I would take credit for what's wrong, but I am, I'm nothing without love. If you want to rest in her life, you have to own up. Not admitting your mistakes out of fear of losing her is a guaranteed way to lose her in the end.

Ask yourself: Can you be alone and still have love? How?

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
She feelin' alone, she feelin' 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-love you put me on
God, I wish a gust of wind would come
And carry me home
But I, I got nowhere to go
Now I hear you sharp with the force of a wave
So I said myself I'm headed for the unpast day
Hey hey, I don't wanna lose this one
She made me feel whole, you know
I am, I'm nothing without love

Oh baby, show me a sign
Send me a signal that everything's fine
Come on, stand up right up by my side
You know that I wanna rest in your life

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

I am nothing without love
I'm just these palms without a pair
And I would take credit for this all
But I, I am nothing without love
Oh baby, show me a sign
Send me a signal that everything's fine
Come on, come one, come on right by my side
Don't you know that I, don't you know that I
Don't you know that I, I wanna rest in your life
I wanna rest in your life
I wanna rest in your life
I wanna rest in your life
'Cause I, I am nothing without love

Na na na hey, ooh oh
Na na na hey, ooh oh
Na na na hey, ooh oh
Na na na hey, ooh oh
