Don't you see. I'm the one for you. You're for me. Don't you see. The love I got is the love you need. Don't you see.

I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be. I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be. I'm all dressed up, all dressed up.

Don't you see, the infinite possibilities.Don't you need, the kind love that I need. Don't you see me. I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be. I'm all dressed up to be what you taught me to be. I'm all dressed up, all messed up.

But you don't even notice me. Moving you like a ton of glacier. You don't even notice me. Soothing you like a long-lost sister. And you don't even care. No you don't even care. All dressed up with no place to go but home.

I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be. I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be. I'm all dressed up, all dressed up.

But you don't even comfort me. You carry on with the will of Samson. You don't even comfort me. You keep your faith and you keep your phantoms. And you don't even care. No you don't even care. All dressed up. Still there's something wrong. I'm all dressed up and you're just a song. I'm all dressed. You're forever gone, everlong.

    General CommentIt's simply saying, 'Pay attention to me. Look at me. I'm the best thing that ever
    came into your life. How could you possibly be unaware of how wonderful I am, and how perfect I
    am for you? How could you turn your back on such an extraordinary love?' I wrote it at 4 in the
    morning, two years before making this record. I hadn't written a song in a really long time, and
    I didn't know if I'd ever write another song that I liked. This particular night I was in Los Angeles,
    staying with a friend, and I couldn't sleep. I picked up an acoustic guitar, and the song just spilled out of me. It was one of the last songs we recorded, and I was really glad we did, because I wanted to give it a place on this album."
    Thats what Louise Post said about it
