"Everything" as written by and Jason Wade....
Find me here, and speak to me
I want to feel you, I need to hear you
You are the light that's leading me to the place
Where I find peace again
You are the strength that keeps me walking
You are the hope that keeps me trusting
You are the life to my soul
You are my purpose
You're everything
And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms and you give me rest
You hold me in your hands
You won't let me fall
You steal my heart and you take my breath away
Would you take me in, take me deeper now
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this

Cause you're all I want, you're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
Everything, everything

And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better-any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this

    General Commenti think that this song, although a lot less popular than "hanging by a moment," is much better. although the beat is slower, and the lyrics harder to follow, this is a great song. my favorite line is, by far,

    "how can i stand here with you, and not be moved by you?"

    i heard it first on "Smallville" and i have been trying to find it for a while now. i just downlaoded it and you have got to hear it. the emotion that they put into the song is the majority of the meaning. you know that whoever he is singing to, is the person that he cares about most in the world

    General Commentwell i hate to start an insane thread about religion like they do on creed sites, but this song is all about his relationship with God. "how can i stand here with you
    and not be moved by you" is asking how anyone can not be affected by God's awesomeness, not a girls, sorry. If you listen again you'll see what i'm talking about and it makes the song even better. it really is a great song about jason's faith and how it helps him through everything because he is his everything!

    General CommentThis song is about God, there is no arguement, he has said in many interviews that "Lifehouse" is a "Christian" band, he wrote this song about God and what God does in him and to him. All of you that have this song as a song between you and your partner, that's great, but just know that it was God that put you two together and that without him, you two would have never met.

    "Steadlydrowning" I know how you're feeling and although you may not believe me, I really do, just hang in there and things will be okay, I'll be praying for you.

    General CommentYes, I suppose the song does have a lot of vague Biblical references.

    But, the funny thing about songs for God is that you can change the pronoun "He, Him, His," and change them to "She, Her, Her," and not have to change any lyric of the song..

    .. and vice versa.

    Maybe this song is about God. But, to me, it's the perfection I can find in the beauty of another human being. It also details the hesitation of falling into another relationship, despite the beauty that person can make you feel. You don't want to fall again, but "How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?"

    General CommentThis song is so powerful. It cannot be intended for a girl, it had to be about God. Only God can give you the peace of mind he is talking about in this song.

    General CommentTo me this song isn't about god everyone can have their own interpretation. I love this song though it's a little slow for me. It's me & this guy's song that I love a lot. It just has the best lyrics for a love song... You can think of it as a god song though if you want. I can't I have no religion.

    General CommentI hate to make anyone mad, but to me, the whole "No Name Face" CD has nothing to do with God. Yes, I understand AND respect that Lifehouse is a Christian Rock group, but to me, their songs have everything to do with relationships (most of them depressing). This whole CD has helped me through an extremely upsetting relationship, and I continue to listen to it today, almost a year later. "Everything" represents my feelings toward my (ex) boyfriend when he couldn't understand how I was feeling. "HOW CAN I STAND HERE WITH YOU, AND NOT BE MOVED BY YOU?" was (to me) me trying to make him see how special he was to me.

    General CommentI hate it how everyone get's so angry at one another over the meaning of this song. We all have different interpretations don't we? I think people need to accept that.

    I personally don't agree that it has to do with religion, but I guess I'm saying that because I'm not a very religious person. Without fully analysing the lyrics, when I listen to this I believe it is a love song. "You're all I want, you're all I need. You're everything." Although that could be addressing God, I see it as more of a guy talking to a girl he is in love with.

    My InterpretationIt's not a song about loss or God.
    It's just as the lyrics describe.
    It's a love that means everything.
    It's a love that lasted for years upon years, yet every time they see each other, they just fall all over again.
    And the song is sung with such pure-hearted feeling that you swear it has some deeper meaning to it.
    It really doesn't. He's singing from his heart.
    It's really your choice who this is dedicated to, but I feel as if these words will only ever be spoken and sung so purely to a lover. The person he truly loves.
