"Everywhere You Turn" as written by and Michael David Lapiana Shannon Edward Ferguson....
When I'm sure
I don't know why but I feel so insecure
And when it comes
It comes like a great big lull
But either way
I don't know why but I get so crazy
And all the thoughts get twisted in knots

When I'm home
I don't know why but I feel so all alone
And then you come barring down like an atom bomb
And I want to, but I want to
But I want to, but I feel all inside out
But I want to, but I want to
But I want to, but I feel all inside out

Everywhere you turn
There's always something there
And all the time you're getting nowhere
Everywhere I don't know why but I get so crazy
And all the thoughts get twisted in knots

Well I'm sure
Sometimes I feel out a little more
And then its hard
It's harder than it ever was before
But either way I don't know why but I get so crazy
And all the thoughts get twisted in knots

Yeah I want to, but I want to
But I want to, but I feel all inside out
But I want to, but I want to
But I want to, but I feel all inside out

Everywhere you turn
There's always something there
And all the time you're getting nowhere
Everywhere I don't know why but I get so crazy
And all the thoughts get twisted in knots

Yeah I want to, but I want to
But I want to, but I feel all inside out
But I want to, but I want to
But I want to
But I feel all inside out

    My InterpretationI always interpreted the song as the guy really likes the girl, and he really wants to be in love with her, but he doesn't want to get hurt again. Like, He has those feelings for her, but she doesn't really see him in that kind of way. And that's why he always feel's scared to like her. Yet for some reason he still is crazy for the girl. In the chorus, I interpreted it as everywhere the girl goes there's always something there besides him, and she hasn't gone for him yet, and she is getting nowhere. The Strangest Things was all about this girl, and in the song Tidal Wave he says; "I am every thing you wanted. I am everything you need." That reads off pretty arrogant, but I think he just realizes that he loves this girl, and she needs to realize that he is the guy for her and that they were meant to be. Anyways, it's an incredible song to complement an incredible album. The Strangest Things is in my top five favorite albums. They are an incredible band.

    General CommentThis song is just magical... I feel so great after I listen to it. It makes me think about when some one falls in love. How twisted you feel. How you want to be inlove with the person but wanting to hold back, not wanting to come off too strong... It's just great.

    General CommentIn a very personal way, I imagine this song having to do with two lovers who've broken up. They still see each other, and even though they still have feelings for each other, they can't express them because they know it just would never work out.

    General Commentin my opinion, the song is about someone who really has feelings for another person, but is too unsure of himself or just afraid to fall in love, to even give it a shot. he wants to, but can't. my favorite off the album... really perfect.

    General CommentMy thoughts are this song have nothing to do with lovers but personal strife and pain and feeling like your "thoughts get twisted in knots."

    I feel like that "alone part" is about feeling alone in your hurt. Other people aren't there to comfort you when you feel most in pain.

    A lot of Longwave songs seemed to being in pain and not being understood like "Wake Me When It's Over."

    Just my two cents. :)
