“It’s easy to say but harder to believe. Let your worries fall away like the autumn to the leaves. We are right on time, right where we’re supposed to be. So put your little hand in mine, see what there is to see.” – lyrics

‘Nothing Lost’ tells a heartwarming tale which highlights what matters most in life.

The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and well-placed melodies. Also, the song possesses chill instrumentation scented with an alternative-pop aroma.
