[Intro]

F  Dm  C  Dm  Bb5    (x2)

[Verse]

F             Dm C            Dm    Bb5
Once divided,    nothing left to subtract
F                      Dm C        Dm    Bb5
Some words when spoken    can't be taken back
F                Dm     C           Dm         Bb5
Walks on his own   with thoughts he can't help thinking
F               Dm             C         Dm       Bb5       Dm
Future's above,     but in the past he's slow and sinking
Bb5                         C             Bb5              A5 Bb5  C
Caught a bolt of lightning,    cursed the day he let it go


[Chorus]

F           Bb5  C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                    Bb5    C
Isn't it something?  Nothingman


2nd Verse:

F                 Dm         C        Dm     Bb5
She once believed   in every story he had to tell
F                      Dm  C        Dm    Bb5
One day she stiffened,     took the other side
F            Dm           C           Dm            Bb5
Empty stares    from each corner of a shared prison cell
F                 Dm       C      Dm       Bb5    Dm
One just escapes,    one's left inside the well
Bb5                C          Bb5              A5 Bb5        C
And he who forgets    will be destined to remember   oh  oh  oh


[Chorus]

F           Bb5  C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                    Bb5    C
Isn't it something?  Nothingman


[Bridge]

Dm              Bb5                 C
  Oh, she don't want him (she don't want him)
              Bb5       Dm            Bb5    C    Dm
Oh, she won't feed him,    after he's flown away
    Bb5                             A5 Bb5
Oh, into the sun, yeah into the sun
                  C
Burn, burn, burn  burn


[Chorus]

F           Bb5  C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                    Bb5    C
Isn't it something?  Nothingman
F           Bb5  C
Nothingman,      nothingman 
F                      Bb5    C
Coulda been something, nothingman


[Outro]

F   Bb5   F   Bb5   F   Bb5   F
