lyrics

NOTHING SPECIAL

you'd better close your sleeping bag you'll let the draft back in
another night for the record books just listen to that wind
there's nothing more to do now you should sleep a little bit
you could count a few more sheep i'll keep the fire lit

but i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night
i ain't nothing special
i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night

they always say it's calmest in the centre of the storm
all around the air is cold but your blood is warm
and you could dream a golden life hawaii in the sun
you'd better wipe your lying eyes when the dream is gone

'cause i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night
i ain't nothing special
i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night

and you could dream a golden life hawaii in the sun
you'd better wipe your lying eyes when the dream is gone

i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night
i ain't nothing special
i ain't nothing special
to get you through this night
