Heart - Nothin' At All



"Nothin' at All" is a song written by Mark Mueller (words & music) and recorded by rock band Heart. A Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit peaking at #10, it was released as the fourth single from the band's self-titled 1985 album Heart, and was the fourth song from the album to hit the U.S. Top 10. It also was a Top 40 hit in the UK, peaking at #38 in 1988 (after reaching number 76 in the UK Singles Chart two years earlier during its original release).


Lyrically it is a love song which describes a new relationship which falls into place without effort or conflict. The song's title phrase is employed both when the narrator describes the new relationship as being like "nothin' at all" and also when she asks the song's subject what he did to make falling in love so easy, his response is "nothin' at all". The song's music video received heavy rotation on MTV and this single was the last big hit from the Heart album.



Lyrics


I would walk home every evening

Through the pyramids of light

I would feed myself on silence

Wash it down with empty nights


Then your innocent distractions

Hit me so hard

My emotional reaction

Caught me off guard


It was nothing at all

Like anything I had felt before

And it was nothing at all

Like I thought no it's so much more

No one else has ever made

Me feel this way

When I asked you how you did it

You just say

It was nothing at all


Now I walk home every evening

And my feet are quick to move

Cause I know my destination

Is a warm and waiting you

From our first communication

It was clear

Any thought of moderation

Would soon disappear


It was nothing at all

Like anything I had felt before

And it was nothing at all

Like I thought no, it's so much more

No one else has ever made

Me feel this way

when I asked you how you did it

You just say

It was nothing at all


Then your innocent distractions

Hit me so hard

My emotional reaction

Caught me off guard


It was nothing at all

Like anything I had felt before

And it was nothing at all

Like I thought no, it's so much more

No one else has ever made

Me feel this way

When I asked you how you did it

You just say

It was nothing at all


It was nothing at all

It was nothing at all

It was nothing at all

It was nothing at all

It was nothing at all

It was nothing at all
