Everthing and Nothing

I had everything and nothing
Glory lost, never to be found
It must have been cold there in your shadow
I don't recall

Love sees everything and nothing
Love is blind to the losses
The way the light reflects upon your hair
The way the smile you gave me
                   fills my heart with laughter
I don't recall till after
How much I could have known
I had everything and nothing
And now I'm all alone

Love sees everything and nothing
Everything that's beautiful
Nothing that is true
Love is blind to what is lost
When I give my love to you.
