♫ I Have Nothing ♫

I honestly didn’t realize that I had done this one before, but I find I did back in August 2018.  This one goes out for … me.  It came to me tonight, or should I say a single line of it came to me, then once the line “I don’t want to hurt anymore” was implanted in my head, the rest flowed naturally.  So, I apologize for yet another redux, but … tonight this one is for Filosofa.


I try to make it a practice never to repeat the same artist in a period of a week, or even two, but … tonight this one takes on the personal and keeps looping in my head, over and over, and in an effort to exorcise the demon, I offer you once again, my friends, Whitney Houston!!!

I Have Nothing
Whitney Houston

Share my life
Take me for what I am
‘Cause I’ll never change
All my colors for you
Take my love
I’ll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do

I don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t want to have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you, you, you, you

You see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love, hm
I never knew
Love like I’ve known it with you
Will a memory survive
One I can hold on to

I don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t want to have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
I can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide
Your love I’ll remember forever

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
No, don’t walk away from me
Don’t you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you
If I don’t have you, oh you

  1. Jill, great talent. I was watching a great documentary on Dolly Parton. She made reference to Houston singing her song “I’ll will always love you.” Dolly said Whitney sang it like no one else could. Then, she smiled and said “she made me a lot of money.” Keith
