Turn it inside out so I can see
The part of you that's drifting over me
And when I wake you're never there
But when I sleep you're everywhere
You're everywhere

Just tell me how I got this far
Just tell me why you're here and who you are
'Cause every time I look
You're never there
And every time I sleep
You're always there

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

I recognize the way you make me feel
It's hard to think that
You might not be real
I sense it now, the water's getting deep
I try to wash the pain away from me
Away from me

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

I am not alone
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

And when I touch your hand
It's then I understand
The beauty that's within
It's now that we begin
You always light my way
I hope there never comes a day
No matter where I go
I always feel you so

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I catch my breath
It's you I breathe
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone

You're in everyone I see
So tell me
Do you see me?

    General Comment:I think its about the man of her dreams, who she hasn't met yet, and she keeps looking for him.. but he's only in her dreams. Possibly... he died/doesn't like her back/he doesn't exist...

    Now.. for a mini-rant... Music is only what it means to you. Just because a person believes this song is about God, doesn't mean it isn't. I am in no way religious. I believe in some higher power, and I respect that.. but this isn't about my religious background. Its about music. Songs that have multiple possible meanings sell the best. Why? Because if its written to where it can be about a guy, or about God.. then you satisfy more people, and sell more records. End. Of. Story.

    General Comment:I am fully convinced this song is about God. All the lyrics indicate God to me, but a few stand out. Such as "You're everything I know that makes me believe I'm not alone." Much more than that, though, is "I recognize the way you make me feel. It's hard to think that you might not be real." If she's singing about a guy, this makes no sense. Finally, it says "And when I catch my breath it's you I breath." This also makes sense with God, but not with just a regular person. In any case, I love this song.

    General Comment:It happens to the best of us.. We fall totally in love/infatuation..
    She falls for a guy and in reality he is never with her but whenever she is dreaming He is always in her dreams

    "I recognize the way you make me feel
    It's hard to think that you might not be real
    I sense it now, the water's getting deep
    I try to wash the pain away from me
    Away from me "

    She recognizes itsjust a dream and she is going way over herself.. and with hat realisation it i hurting her that he is not real or he just doesnt love her so she tries to rub it off..


    "And when I touch your hand
    It's then I understand
    The beauty that's within
    It's now that we begin
    You always light my way
    I hope there never comes a day
    No matter where I go
    I always feel you so"

    she just accepts him as a part of her and just within and its like she will always keep him there to make her feel WHOLE

    CUTE SONG and nice beat.. the lyris rock too

    General Comment:this is actually michelle's view of the song.
    Branch: I guess I could never do "Behind the Music," because none of the songs I write are about personal experiences. I mostly write love songs because I think it's the one thing that everyone can relate to. You see it in movies, in novels ... I like to keep my songs open-ended so people can listen to it and say, "Oh, I think it means this. I've been through that." Instead of having it be about, "I dumped my boyfriend. This is what the song is about." Then it's like, "I don't get it. This has never happened to me. I'm not Michelle." "Everywhere" started out as this simple acoustic love song. When you first like somebody, every little thing reminds you of that person. They're everywhere, in every little thing.

    General Comment:not gonna lie, easily one of my favorite pop songs :) even though the yellow card version is very good, i think Michelle's voice can't really be topped. Anyway, i think it's a guy she sees somewhere and can;t stop thinking about him btu he doesn;t knwo she even exists. in the end, they do somehow get together and it's totally true love. haha maybe a little optimistic, but cute

    General Comment:This song simply means a girl wanting a guy, but the girl doesn't even know the guy, and the guy hasn't even seen him.
