Intro -x2-: F  Dm  C  Dm  Bb 

Verse:
F             Dm 
Once divided,    
C            Dm    Bb 
nothing left to subtract
F                      Dm 
Some words when spoken    
C        Dm    Bb 
can't be taken back
F                Dm
Walks on his own   
     C           Dm         Bb 
with thoughts he can't help thinking
F               Dm  
Future's above,     
           C         Dm       Bb        Dm
but in the past he's slow and sinking
Bb                          C  
Caught a bolt of lightning,    
           Bb               A  Bb   C
cursed the day he let it go

Chorus:
F           Bb   
Nothingman,      
C
nothingman 
F                    
Isn't it something?  
Bb     C
Nothingman

Verse:
F                 Dm
She once believed   
         C        Dm     Bb 
in every story he had to tell
F                      Dm  
One day she stiffened,     
C        Dm    Bb 
took the other side
F            Dm 
Empty stares    
          C           Dm            Bb 
from each corner of a shared prison cell
F                 Dm 
One just escapes,    
      C      Dm       Bb     Dm
one's left inside the well
Bb                 C  
And he who forgets    
        Bb               A  Bb         C
will be destined to remember   oh  oh  oh

Chorus:
F           Bb   
Nothingman,      
C
nothingman 
F                    
Isn't it something?  
Bb     C
Nothingman

Bridge:
Dm              Bb                  C
  Oh, she don't want him -she don't want him-
              Bb        Dm            Bb     C    Dm
Oh, she won't feed him,    after he's flown away
    Bb                              A  Bb 
Oh, into the sun, yeah into the sun
                  C
Burn, burn, burn  burn

Chorus:
F           Bb   C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                    Bb     C
Isn't it something?  Nothingman
F           Bb   C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                      Bb     C
Coulda been something, nothingman
