"Everything" as written by Jarrod Douglas Montague, Michael Frederick De Wolf, Philip M. Lipscomb and Stephen Steele Richards....
Grown up an only child
One parent home my style
Was spoiled
And Doubted
Untrusted
Neglected by others around

You saved
You saved me

You were the only one
There for me loved me dearly
Treated
and
Supported me
Right through the
Thick and the thin

You saved
You saved me

Look at me now
I hope you're proud
You're everything to me

Taught me to be myself
Showed independent
Health alone through
Struggles made it work
Ourselves just a
Mother and child

You saved
You saved me

Look at me now
I hope you're proud
You're everything to me

Look at me now
I hope you're proud
You're everything to me

You're everything

    General CommentThis song appears to be about one of his parents maybe?

    General CommentI remember reading in an interview that Stephen said it was a song written for his mother. He either said they don't talk much, or he just can't say what he wants to her, thanking her, but I can't remember because it was so long ago. Beautiful, beautiful song though.

    General CommentThis is lovely song that Steve wrote to his mother who brought him up, and saved him from becoming a junkie

    General CommentIt is a song about his mother. I reminds me of mine. I grew up without anyone there as well. My mother and I raised our family. If it wasn't for her then all of us would have been doomed. I love this song. I'm in the military and when I come home again I am going to play it for my mom.
