Lyrics:

I sat with old Silas as the light was failing
And shadows growing long
He fixed me with his grey-dark stare and said
"Like me your life lies in your song"
Then he told me "I've been working on a song for nobody
"Cos we're all nobody sometimes
Yeah I been working on a song for nobody
'Cos you know we're all nobody sometimes"

I stayed with Silas as hope grew dim
And night segued into day
His old hands plucked the air like chords
And just before Time carried him away he whispered
"Hey, looks like you'll have to finish that song for nobody
'cos we're all nobody sometimes
Go finish that song for nobody
And remember we're all nobody sometimes"

Old Silas is still singing in my dreams
The way all good spirits are
Sometimes he's living in a memory
Right now he's living in the strings of my guitar
Oh and here's that song for nobody
'Cos we're all nobody sometimes
Yeah here's that song for nobody
'Cos you know we're all nobody sometimes

Here's a song for nobody
'Cos we're all nobody sometimes
