​Paint Nothing

This song is by Idlewild and appears on the album Hope Is Important (1998).

My wintertime came fast
I bought you a drawing pad,
And then you told me,
You didn't like looking closely.
You don't like walking home,
You're not sure who you are,
And no one knows about your scar.

But I told you
To shut up once,
Because you're never there,
And you're too old to be scared.

'Cause I've been in
Lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

The summertime came fast
You still had your drawing pad,
But you told me,
You couldn't see me correctly.
We don't like holding hands,
We don't like playing guitar,
And no one knows about your scars.

But I've been in
Lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

And you never get out of this easily now

'Cause I've been in
Lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

Send me here
Send me there
Repetitions in the air.
Send me here
Send me there
Repetitions in the air.

'Cause I've been in
Lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

I'm calling the art school
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

I'm in the art school
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.
