I Got Nothin' (Megan Van Alstine)

Song Description

This song features Megan Van Alstine on vocals and is about the life of substance abuse and the realization of the devastating toll that it takes. As they hunkered down in the closet, Brian and Liz fired up another hit. As the flame painted their tired eyes with tints of red and orange; the smoke filled their lungs as well as the closet. Oblivious to phone calls and/or door bells, they both emerged from their drug induced fantasy to the reality that... I got nothin'.

Song Length 3:01 Genre Rock - Modern, Rock - General
Tempo Medium Slow (91 - 110) Lead Vocal Female Vocal
Mood Uptight, Troubled Subject Addiction
Language English Era 2000 and later

Lyrics

I Got Nothin
Megan Van Alstine (Vocals), Matt Wallace (Sax), Lyrics & Music by Frank Pietrantoni

How many times do I say
Just one will be alright.
Too many nights I lie awake
Just fightin' to tell what's right

Now I know I got nothin'
Nothin' to brag about but the loss...

And all the time I waste on lies
Seems worth the cost to play
And laughs...laughs turn to cries
As night turns to day
My dreams just fade away

Now I know I got nothin'
Nothin' to brag about but
Now I know I needed somethin'
Or someone to help me out

Gotta face here spaced out with me
Only good for one thing
To light the flame to shame on with me
Every night's the same ole thing.

Now I know I got nothin'
Nothin' to brag about but
Now I know I needed somethin'
Or someone to help me out
(repeat)

Good rocker! Well sung and a great lyrics. Pro production.

Great slap bass line and top vocals. Great groove and arrangements overall. Hook is pretty memorable. Could be a good fit for end credits of a movie.

Really good and entertaining piece. Instruments are incorporated nicely. Vocals seem great and effortless.

Nice song overall. Vox are really nice, like the additional vocals towards the end. Love the way the bass kicks off the song.
