Farmer's Boys — Something From Nothing lyrics

Trying for something
Or should that be someone?
I made the arrangement
As good as I can

Started with nothing
Or could that be no-one?
Reached the agreement
It's out of my hands

I was responsible but that's not for me to say
There was a time when it meant more anyway

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
I'm losing my balance
I'm ready to fall

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
Typical

Moving in closer
Or taking advantage?
Suddenly older
But never so young

Someone is holding my hand as a hostage before I've begun

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
I'm losing my balance
I'm ready to fall

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
Typical

[Middle 8]

I was responsible but that's the last thing on my mind
If it was critical
Typical

Started with nothing
It's now or it's never
Learning the language
With nothing to say

Somebody's leaving
It's goodbye forever
The evening is over
Let's call it a day

You can't be sure that I won't enter in your plans
I can't confirm this is totally out of my hands

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
I'm losing my balance
I'm ready to fall

Trying to get something
From out of this nothing
Typical

(I was responsible but that's the last thing on my mind
If it was critical
Typical)
