Amazing Grace the Musical - Nothing There to Love Lyrics

"Nothing There to Love" is a song from the Broadway musical Amazing Grace performed by Erin Mackey (Mary Catlett) and Josh Young (John Newton).

JOHN:
For I was just a face within the crowd
Trying hard to find my way the best I knew how
No one ever saw the loneliness I held inside
And the more I tried to show my best, the more I had to hide
But somewhere in the darkness you were there
She listened to my music when the world didn’t care
You the only one who saw beyond the things i’d done
Who helped me see a vision of the man I could become
Now this is my song for the one who loved me when
There was nothing there to love
And this is my anthem to the one who prayed
Someday I would rise above
Somewhere in her eyes
I could see beyond my sorrow
Now wherever life may lead
I want everyone to see
I believe in them as she believed in me

MARY:
If you had only returned
To be the same man you were
I’d resolved in my mind
That I must always love you from afar
Though it would break my heart
I would let you go
And never let you know
That I feel what I do
But there’s a god
Who can make dreams come true
And there’s not a storm
That his light can’t shine through
And I believed that he was searching for you

JOHN:
Now this is my song for the one who loved me when
There was nothing there to love
And this is my anthem to the one who prayed
Someday I would rise above
Somewhere in your eyes
I could see beyond my sorrow

MARY:
There was a reason why
My heart was weeping for you
Now no one can deny
What the power of true love can do
Somewhere in your eyes
I could see beyond my sorrow

MARY:
Now wherever life may lead

JOHN:
There’s a future I can see

MARY and JOHN:
And I will face it all if you will walk with me

MARY:
There’s a future

MARY and JOHN:
I will face it all if you will walk with me
