"All Over You" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Our love is like water
Pinned down and abused
For being strange
Our love is no other
Than me alone
For me all day
Our love is like water/angels
Pinned down and abused
All over you all over me
The sun the fields the sky
I've often tried to hold the sea
The sun the fields the tide
Pay me now lay me down

    General CommentI think this song is actually about Ed's loneliness, "our love is no other than me alone for me all day" which is definately strange. And perhaps he is after someone that he can not allow himself to be with regardless of how bad he wants to be with this person. I think that the chorus suggests that the person that he is infatuated with is his world and his everything who in fantasy, or in his mind tried to convince himself he can hold, "the sea" well that's my own opinion. I think this song is one of the greatest live songs ever, definately a top 20 in my book. I give it 4 out of 5 stars

    General CommentI always thought it was about a relationship with a prostitute ("pay me now, lay me down"), but the gay relationship could also make sense. Amazing song.

    General CommentWow. I don't agree with anyone else's opinion. Lol. So I thought I'd share mine.

    I think it's about a one-sided relationship in which the singer is the one in love. He's putting in more than he's getting back and it feels like it's pretty much just sexual. Water, like the sun, fields, and sky that are mentioned, is something that can't be held by a person alone and whoever he's with can't be pinned down and kept.

    General CommentIt's odd that you mention a gay relationship because although I've never connected it with this song thats kinda what I think herephsycodreamer is about.
