Ryan Adams - Nobody Girl Lyrics




Well, the night makes moves
And it shatters like broken glass
Better play it cool... better let it pass
Have you been screening your smokes?
And whispers in an all night bar
Better off as the fool
Than the owner of that kind of heart

They don't know you anyway
They don't know you and they don't watch you walk away
Just a nobody girl
With a radar to the scene
When the emptiness finds you
You find all the numbers you need
Say you follow your heart
Well, honey you're just being lost
Say you follow your gut
Well, how much would it cost?

They don't know you anyway
They don't know you
And they don't watch you walk away

You're nobody, girl
You're nobody, girl

You're a nobody, girl

The night plays games
And the people they come and go
Well, they trade in their pieces
For a late-night ride on your rodeo
If your horses could talk,
I wonder if they would complain
I know you're rested and ready
They've been going nowhere for days

They don't know you anyway
They don't know you,
They don't even mind the weight

Nobody, girl
You're nobody, girl
Nobody, girl

    Well, the night makes moves
    And it shatters like broken glass
    Better play it cool... better let it pass
    Have you been screening your smokes?
    And whispers in an all night bar
    Better off as the fool
    Than the owner of that kind of heart

    They don't know you anyway
    They don't know you and they don't watch you walk away
    Just a nobody girl
    With a radar to the scene
    When the emptiness finds you
    You find all the numbers you need
    Say you follow your heart
    Well, honey you're just being lost
    Say you follow your gut
    Well, how much would it cost?

    They don't know you anyway
    They don't know you
    And they don't watch you walk away

    You're nobody, girl
    You're nobody, girl

    You're a nobody, girl

    I know you're rested and ready
    They've been going nowhere for days

    They don't know you anyway
    They don't know you,
    They don't even mind the weight

    Nobody, girl
    You're nobody, girl
    Nobody, girl

  19. bob kat

    Best singer-song writer since Dyaln.

    Ron Belin

    Kat..astute, your observation is most welcome

    Sabrina Ingalls

    bob kat lol Dylan couldn't sing.

    ms.lisa murphy

    bob kat well...he sucked,so you’re absolutely correct

  20. Gracjan Rötke

    Love this track!

  21. Jersey Girl SOAP

    I always have to endure the idiots who thought him being unsteady on stage was the result of substance abuse. He Has Menniers syndrome Its a miracle he can play at all,

    Marina corriendo

    i once saw him live and was surprised, when he left the stage between the songs. i didnt know about the menniers syndrome, thanks for telling!

    Rodney Rowland

    @Jersey Girl SOAP It also had to do with the fact that he was either half drunk or on high on Heroin.

  22. razbigranicu

    just a tremendous song

  23. gman don

    ryan adams is one of the greatest songwriters of his generation. his songs will be part of american culture for centuries. i would say he is the most talented musian the US have produce a true wordsmiths with get feeling.

    Rob Cole

    Natalie Dalla-Vicenza selfishly, I'm glad he's not all over the place getting overexposed I am a musician myself. But I am so humbled by Ryan Adams

    David C.S.

    gman don Yes, he is a great poet, but he does not know it.

    MARSBELLA1

    He is so good - he doesn't even have to try - the guy was just born with innate talent - for the longest time I thought he was a bit of pyschopath as I couldnt sense emotions behind his newest material - and pyschos do kinda do everything right and take on personas- which he no doubt does - but then I listen to Gold - I think what an UNDERATED album (which is so rare these days) and you can hear the passion. He is nothing but music. I find him facinating and in 20 odd years - everyone will know it - the fact that he does this solo - and produces it and makes it from scratch is just so incredible. The guy is incredibibly talented.

    MARSBELLA1

    how old was he when he wrote this? Like 25/26?

    MARSBELLA1

    And so many hidden gems on every album. Like I said - he doesnt even have to try.

  24. terri dru

    just flat out fucking amazing!!

  25. Jim Aitken

    If you like This track Then go get Whiskytown, Strangers Almanac Its a classic.

  26. Chip O'Connell

    when the emptiness finds you, you find all the numbers ya need. fact.

  27. Chip O'Connell

    how olds ur sister?

  28. QweenAIPVIP

    I fall in love with every song he sings i swear

  29. omgitsmattsutube

  35. kimberly owen

    Theme song...... Fire and Ashes is great too. Glad to see him back at it. He's so beautiful.......

  36. Alice Perry

    I heard this song for the first time in a junk shop in Penzance. It was a brilliant junk shop, and this is a brilliant song.

  37. ep1cf00f00

    This is crap

    M Pi

    Your comment? Agreed

  38. Hristos Vakalopoulos

    Amazing song. the influence of Velvet Underground and Lou Reed is more than obvious

  39. sp0ttedp0ny330

    @javimarion good to know i am not the only one who thinks he's rather Dylanesque...guess its the "story teller" aspect of his wonderful songs...from the heart, sung with heart...brilliant!!!

  40. sp0ttedp0ny330

    @cruisinokc405 in 110% agreement with ya!!

  41. Kelly MacLeod

    I think this song is terribly underrated. Probably one of my favorites by him besides "Gonna Make You Love Me," "Note to Self: Don't Die," and "Dance All Night."

  42. SoulMarc B

    Excellent tune. My favorite of Ryan Adams Esq. Thanks!

  43. cruisinokc405

  44. Graham Lewie

  45. LouisJopling

    I don't condone drug use of any form BUT I enjoy nothing more than lighting up a spliff to this tune.
