"Nowhere And Everywhere" as written by Michelle Lewis and Wayne Cohen....
Da da da...mmmm..oh ho

She's been traveling the sidewalks for hours
Stopping as every moment of the truth wanders past
Window shopping for religion or something harder
Than the coins in her pocket

She is way too pretty for prime time New York
She gets the business every time she takes a walk
Amid the shark-smile porno scenes
But they can't ever touch her - their disappearing queen

She is
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
at the same time

She's as shady as cheap sunglasses
But as perfect as this October Monday passes
To a draggin' your-soul-around-town rhythm
Always in such a hurry, but never too fast
Playing chicken with delivery boys and tag with the subways
Searchin' alleys for proper company
She's jumping in and out of cracks
And she's got everything that you lack
Well she entered unnoticed
You won't feel it when she leaves

She is
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
at the same time

Ahhhh

We belong in gutters and glittering lobbies
We belong to a street lamp flickering out
We belong to absolutely nothing

Getting out of a taxi the other day
My heart fell out of my backpack and into a puddle
And so my chest was empty but it felt okay
I just fished out the pieces and walked away into

Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
at the same time

Aahhh

We are
Nowhere and everywhere
You're feeling close but nothing's there
We are
Nowhere and everywhere
At the same time

Heeyyyy

Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere
Nowhere and everywhere

    General CommentI freakin' love this song. I first heard it on the Practical Magic soundtrack. As for meaning, I think maybe its about living out our lives without meaning... Just going through the motions without putting any heart into it. I just love that last verse.

    General CommentI heard it from the Practical Magic soundtrack too! It's a really good soundtrack if you ask me... I can't seem to find any of her other songs on Limewire. It's saddening, because this song's one of my favourites of all time. Like..no one knows of it. Hence why I'm only the second person to comment.. and probably the last.

    Anyway, I think it's about not really knowing who you are and desperately trying to find yourself. I think that the girl in the song is a really special person, but she doesn't know it, and neither does anybody else. It kindof reminds me of that teenager stage where you aren't really comfortable in your own skin and at that point in their life, everything is a journey to finding who they really are. That's what I interpret with this song,

    Michelle Lewis is an amazing singer.. the way she sings it is so calming and melodic. Beautiful, beautiful voice.

    General CommentYou definitely are not the last one to comment. Another Practical Magic fan, movie and soundtrack has always stayed close to me, still can't stop listening to this song.

    Something about this song sounds so free to me and alive, although the tone or the meaning i get from it sounds as she is wandering through the world or looking out for something, feels like she can't fit, i guess in a way like Sally (sandra bullock's character). She is finding that peace is finding that place in every place she has been. Its a fun, free song and at the same time she is staying hopeful.
