What Satan offers, as told in this lovely and beautiful song, is

“Sweet Nothing”

(and worse)

The Lyrics:

You took my heart and you held it in your mouth

And with a word all my love came rushing out
And every whisper, it’s the worst,
Emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something unknown
I’m living on such sweet nothing
But I’m tired of hope with nothing to hold
I’m living on such sweet nothing

And it’s hard to learn
And it’s hard to love
When you’re giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You’re giving me such sweet nothing

[Beat break]

It isn’t easy for me to let it go
Cause I’ve swallowed every single word
And every whisper, every sigh
Eats away this heart of mine
And there is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something unknown
I’m living on such sweet nothing
But I’m tired of hope with nothing to hold
I’m living on such sweet nothing

And it’s hard to learn
And it’s hard to love
When you’re giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You’re giving me such sweet nothing

[Beat break]

And it’s not enough to tell me that you care
When we both know the words are empty air
You give me nothing

Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh
Nothing

[Beat break]

Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh

Sweet nothing

Uoooh
Uoooh
Uoooh
Sweet nothing

Your choice. And you must choose. For to not-choose-Jesus is to reject Jesus. He said so. “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.” Matthew 12:30
