Lyrics

NOTHING MYSTERIOUS
(Tonio K./Charlie Sexton)

well i came home for christmas
but i was too late
all the presents were opened
only bones on the plate
now you've heard about christmas
and the month of december
it can get so depressing
but you've got to remember

when the rain hits down
like a hammer
when the cold wind rips through your life
just like a dagger
when your car won't start
and the bus won't stop
and you're stranded on blue avenue
it's nothing mysterious
it's nothing new

she came out from missouri
to the land of fast cars
looking for validation
auditioning for parts
she paid with her beauty
her innocence slain
she took it so hard
until someone explained

when the rain hits down
like a hammer
when the cold wind rips through your life
just like a dagger
when they break your heart,
and they take you apart
leave you lying on blue avenue
well it's not like these things
only happen to you
it's just traditional misery
we all go through

you're not alone
you should have known
it's nothing mysterious
it's nothing new

so we stumble our way
into the new year
with the usual confusion,
but one thing is clear
it's all laughter and sadness
and it's all televised
it just is what it is
but it ain't no surprise

when the rain hits down
like a hammer
when the cold wind rips through your life
just like a dagger
when they break your heart,
and they take you apart
leave you lying on blue avenue
well it's nothing mysterious
it's nothing new
