(Nothing) Stole My Heart

from by John Jacob Magistery



Playing with some geometric signs to build my home
I was walking and I roamed into a park
and the breeze blew today so I packed my thin jacket
and I passed by a statue of a man
and buses came and went filled with people
cars they honked their horns
and I saw somebody and I shook his hand
he was going to a movie later on
but nothing
nothing (repeated)

Nothing stole my heart
Nothing stole my heart
but it was okay
it was okay

then I thought about a coffee that I didn't want to drink
and the girl on the bench lit a smoke
then the car across the street drove off with all the money
and the silence told another joke
and then I washed my hands in the imaginary fountain
where the cops and the junkies wash their clothes
and I walked upon the river made of stars and metal poles
and I thought about a girl I used to know

Nothing stole my heart
Nothing sole my heart
but it was okay

It was oh
it was okay
it was oh
it was okay
it was okay
