"Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" is the opening track of Bob Dylan's 2009 studio album Together Through Life. The title is a quote from the ancient Roman poet Ovid.[1][2] The track was available as a free download on Dylan's official website from March 30 to March 31, 2009, and a photo montage set to the song premiered on Amazon on April 21.

Like much of Dylan's more recent work, he produced the song himself using the pseudonym Jack Frost.

The song was used in the trailer for the second season of HBO's True Blood, and was again featured in the final episode of the second season of the program,[1] "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'". Blue-Tongue Films created a music video for the song directed by Nash Edgerton and featuring Joel Stoffer and Amanda Aardsma in an extreme marital spat.[3]

The song was nominated at the 52nd Grammy Awards for Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo.
