"Everyone Everywhere" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
At the end of the day
There's no food on our plate
So we beg and we steal
For we know love is real
And if we don't take a chance
In a spare sideways glance
These are all the chains I wanted
To justify the things I do

And when we kiss we speak as one
And in a single breath this world is gone
And when we kiss we speak as one
With a single breath this world is gone

It's a crisis I know
At the end of the show
People change but we don't falter
'Cause we know love is real
This is no place to shiver
So get up off the grass
You were once the main attraction
But all that's in the past

How much is free for me and you?
I'm on my knees, I am a fool
But when we kiss we speak as one
With a single breath this world is gone
This world is gone

How could I fail to give her
When she cried such a lot?
People change but we don't falter
'Cause we use what we've got

And when we kiss we speak as one
With a single breath this world is gone
And when we kiss we speak as one
With a single breath this world is gone

This world is gone
This world is gone
This world is gone

    General CommentI think it's a shamelessly cynical lyrics since he is simply defending the absurd idea that he can do anything for justifying his love for his girl, including robbery (!). So he and she are ready to steal the show with their acts while the rest of us wouldneed to lose all the brakes that preventing us from acting like them (Uh!), but he knows his acts will only serve to provoke a crisis in our 'old-fashioned' minds.

    At the same time, he recognizes just for a while his mind is so chained like ours, since he's a prisoner of his insane girlfriend, as I can conclude on reading these lines below...

    How much is free
    For me and you
    I'm on my knees
    I am a fool
    But when we kiss we speak as one
    With a single breath this world is gone
    (this world is gone)

    General CommentI disagree... I think this song is about running through life at a frantic pace and not actually living life, and not really enjoying it. He realizes when it's too late that he's lost his relationship. Hence the metaphors of "stealing". It's how life is actually "stolen" away from you when you're too busy focusing on what doesn't matter.

    General Commenti think this excellent song is about a girl who the songwriter used to be the boyfriend of ("you were once the main attraction, but that's all in the past") and he goes to meet her one evening for old times sake and they get carried away and start getting physical again - the references to "we beg and we steal" may indicate she now has another partner. Despite the romantic tone, there's a slight air of menace and melancholy about the song. the feeling that he's getting into something dangerous, which he will be if this risks breaking up current relationships. It may be called Everyone Everywhere because anyone who's been in a relationship may always be tempted back to their former partner.
