Nothing But a Number

by Nicholas Lear


Nothing but a Number by Nicholas Lear (Original 12-bar)

V1: Nothing but a number,
Ain't nothing but a crime.
Nothing left to remind them,
that I'm even still alive

Chorus 1: Just another day
growing old and gray.
I just might lose my mind baby,
somewhere along the way

V2: Been locked up so long,
Ain't no place left to call home.
There's nothing left it seems,
to those long lost dreams.
(Chorus 1)

V3: How many more years,
'til I'm paid in full.
When I'm old-n-gray
that's when you'll let me go.

Chorus 2: Bitter in heart and mind,
released back to mankind.
Ain't no real doubt baby,
What corrections is all about.

Repeat V1
