Nothing Is Everything

A new song for Song Fight!

second verse based on a Les Paul quote in NYTimes:
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/14/arts/music/14paul.html?_r=1

when you're my age
and you know the end is in sight
how do you handle it?
you live for the moment
the past is gone
and the future isn't here yet
and you ain't gonna change it
no matter what you think
and so the most obvious thing to do is right now

(thanks for everything, Les Paul!)

E9
somethings are every where
B7
somethings happen every day
A7
somethings never go away
E
and somethings never stay
.
for somethings I don't have a care
and these are things I would never say
if something got broke today
something else we'll have to play
.
E               E+4        E
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
          C#-7      G#7
can't you see
          F#-7       E
can't you see
.
when you're my age
and see the end in sight
how do you live with it?
just live this time...it's right
the past is gone
and the future isn't yet
you ain't gonna change it, no
no matter what you bet
.
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
can't you see
.
         B9/F#   D9/A            F#9/C#   B7
the most obvious time to live is right    now
.
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
nothing is everything to me
