NOTHIN ON ME
Shawn Colvin


Well I don't tell jokes


And I don't take notes


You been sayin there ain't much hope


You got nothin on me


I got friends uptown


And they don't talk down


They been keepin me safe and sound


We got somethin to be




So in case you hadn't noticed


I'm alright


Not like I was before


Things used to be so hopeless


But not tonight


Tonight I'm walkin out that door




I'm not gonna cry


I'm wavin goodbye


And I know this time


You got nothin on me




Well it ain't that tough


Just more of the usual stuff


One heartache is more than enough


There ain't nothin to see




I got friends uptown


And they still come 'round


They been keepin me safe and sound


We got somethin to be




So don't you try to save me


With your advice


Or turn me into somebody else


Cuz I'm not crazy and you're not nice


Baby keep it to yourself




I'm not gonna cry


And I'm wavin goodbye


And I know this time


You got nothin on me
