Zero Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I find it hard to say the things I want to say the most
Find a little bit of steady as I get close
Find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me low, send me high, send me never demigod
I remember walking in the cold of November
Hoping that I make it to the end of December

27 years and the end on my mind
But holding to the thought of another time


[Refrain]
But looking to the ways of the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don't want to hear about what to do
I don’t want to do it just to do it for you

[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it's like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there's nothing really real, real
I'm looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it's like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to never feel, feel
Like I'm good enough for anything that's real, real
I'm looking for a way out


[Verse 2]
I find it hard to tell you how I wanna run away
I understand it always makes you feel a certain way
I find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me up, send me down, send me never demigod
I remember walking in the heat of the summer
Wide-eyed one with a mind full of wonder
27 years and I’ve nothing to show
Falling from the dove to the dark of the crow

[Refrain]
Looking to the ways of the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don’t want to hear about what to do, no
I don't want to do it just to do it for you

[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to always feel, feel
Like I'm empty and there's nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it's like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to never feel, feel
Like I'm good enough for anything that's real, real
I'm looking for a way out


[Bridge]
Let me tell you 'bout it, well let me tell you 'bout it
Maybe you're the same as me
Let me tell you 'bout it, well let me tell you 'bout it
They say the truth will set you free

[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it's like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to always feel, feel
Like I'm empty and there's nothing really real, real
I'm looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it's like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it's like to never feel, feel
Like I'm good enough for anything that's real, real
I'm looking for a way out

About “Zero”

“Zero” is a song by Imagine Dragons for the film, Ralph Breaks the Internet. The song acts as the lead track from the film’s soundtrack alongside songs by Daft Punk and ​will.i.am, among others. The song also acts as the second track released in preparation for their fourth studio album, Origins.

Under a joyful and upbeat facade, the song speaks of the hardships and struggles one has faced since his or her early days. It reminisces over the thought that they are never enough for anyone and won’t amount to anything. Subtle references of suicide and depression are found throughout the entirety of the song.

While the song first mysteriously surfaced as a Spotify ad days before its release, “Zero” officially premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on 19 September, 2018.

  • Where was this song first teased?

    The song was first teased during a Spotify ad of the band dressed up as characters from Ralph Breaks the Internet. Concurrently, the song appeared on each of the band member’s repertoire on BMI along with John Hill as a songwriter/composer.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    During Zane Lowe’s World Premier of the song, Dan Reynolds explained:

    So this song we tried to create something with a bit more tempo. I was listening to a lot of The Cure, so that’s where a lot of the eighties are coming from. I think it also just wrote itself very easily because I was able to go to a place that was very vulnerable for me, which was all of school growing up. I never was in any subgroup; I wasn’t a popular kid, I wasn’t a band kid, I wasn’t good at sports. I just kinda was someone who went home by myself and wrote music every day and started a band. That was my existence: a garage band.

  • Is there a music video?

    Yes, there is a Lyric Video (below) which was released along with the song’s release on September 29, 2018. An official video was released on 23 October 2018.

  • What was the inspiration for this song?

    Dan Reynolds knows the kind of feelings he’s expressing in this song. He has overcome depression, and the emotional darkness of this experience is reflected in the lyrics.
