Nothing More and Nothing Less

“I’m your friend”, said JS
“Nothing more. And nothing less”

“Nothing more” – such a stress
Turned my feelings into mess

“Nothing more” broke my heart
All my dreams just fell apart

“Nothing more” made me cry
Made me wish I wanna die

“Nothing more” gave me pain
Made me feel I’d lived in vain

“Nothing more” made me sad
Made me wish I’d been dead

I felt bad, I went mad
Put the gun against my head

To my finger I said “Yes”
Then I thought of “nothing less”

“Nothing less” eased my vigor
Took my finger off the trigger

“Nothing less” wiped my tears
Made me braver, killed my fears

“Nothing less” said by J
Made me put the gun away
