Been doin' the math ever since you left

Pondering the properties of loneliness

Stacking your efforts right up against mine

You know I get the same answer every time

You take four hundred seventeen nights and days

A million and one promises made

Put them all together and you throw 'em away

You get zero

Nothing but zero
Oh, zero

Mmmmmmm...

I remember learning all of this back in school

I guess I never did apply it to me and you

So, I guess I'll be the one to carry the blame

Something times nothing always ends the same

You take four hundred seventeen nights and days

A million and one promises made

Put them all together and you throw 'em away

You get zero

Nothing but zero

Oh, zero

Mmmmmmm...

Every time I think of how hard you try

Baby, my blues just multiply...

You take four hundred seventeen nights and days

A million and one promises made

Put them all together and you throw 'em away

You get zero

Nothing but zero

A great big zero

Whoa, zero
