"This Is Everything" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Climbed up on the rainbow
Just to see if I'd fall off
I'm a frosted lemon coward
And I don't know how
No don't know to hold you without shaking
No I'm not aware of how I could possibly love you without aching
Yes I give you everything
Yes I give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch myself
I've gotta love myself
And take care
And so keep the light on before ya' hop into bed
'Cause, baby, this is the last honest love I'll ever give
I saved up all my sunshine just to see you more clear
I'm a little short on sorrow and I haven't given in
No I'm going to hold you anyway and I'll do it without shaking
Yes I'll love you always and I'll do it without aching
Yes I'd give you anything
Yes I'd give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch myself
I've gotta love myself
And take care
And so keep the light on before ya' hop into bed
'Cause, baby, this is the last honest love I'll ever give
I give you everything
I give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch my self
I've gotta love myself
And take care
Yeah
Gave you
I gave you
I gave you everything
So I've gotta watch myself
And love myself
And take care
This is your last love
This is your last love
This is your last love
Yeah this is your last love
This is your last love
This is your last love
And so keep the light on before ya' hop into bed
'Cause, baby, this is the last honest love I'll ever give

    General Commentrainbow and sunshine.
    this song is so beautiful...
    it describes what i'm going through perfectly.

    in my opinion,
    it's about a love that wasn't on the same level; one of them loves the other very much, and the other one might've just been with them for the heck of it.
    so the one that was in love decides to end it, even if she knows she won't get over them easily; she'd rather keep her pride and dignity than be with someone who doesn't feel the same way.

    My InterpretationObviously this is about someone she really loves. I think its more like she was just giving everything to make it work, down to even herself, the love she had for herself and it was replaced by the love she had for that other person. And that person, just cant return all of that, doesnt wanna break up and cut her off completely, the person wants to stay friends. Probably the most difficult thing to do when your inlove. And probably the wrongest thing and unconsiderate thing a person can ask you.

    '' Im going to hold you anyway
    and ill do it without shaking
    yes ill love you always
    and ill do it without aching''

    If your shaking it means the action means alot to you, bad or good, but in this case its good. Virgins shake when they touch for the first time, you shake under the hand of someone you love. So shes going to try to not make it show that that one tiny physical contact makes her shake and feel infinite. Shes going to still love the person, but she'll pretend shes not aching for more.

    ''This is the last honest look I'll ever give''

    Because the person is asking her to not be honest, to not show what she really feels. So its the last time shes going to open, and then she'll close up. And pretend to stop shaking and stop aching.

    I dont know. Thats how i see it, but maybe thats only because im in a same situation right now. Amazing song, really.

    General CommentIt seems to be about someone she gave herself to. SHe put all she had into the relationship and although she loves this person so much, she realizes as much love as she feels, she's also in pain, so that's why it's the last "honest love [she'll] ever give. she's never gonna put herself in that painful position again, being blinded by love. makes me think of that 1st high school love, when you had millions of emotions flying about, so much passion both positive and negative.

    General CommentI think this song is about the end of a relationship. When you know that is going to be over soon and you want the other person to know how much you loved them and gave to them. You also realize you need to start taking care of yourself from now on.

    General CommentI like ohsoquiet's description! I never thought of it like that, and I agree with the high school love thing. And yeah, the "last honest love" thing, I think is about how..well you know how when a lot of people get their hearts broken and they decide "I'm never dating again"?? I think it's like that. And the "keep the light on before you hop into bed" i think mean "get one good last look at me"

    General Commenti like the end lyric of the song, with the abrupt way it finishes with 'this is the last honest love ill ever give'. its as though she decided to leave him right as it ends.
