"Have It All" as written by Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
You're my size I need to try you on
Someone in between the right and wrong
Through everything you kept your wings apart
Through everything you stayed that same old heart
And when I've had enough

She drains me
When I'm empty
She fills herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
Go on and have it all.

Running through this maze you hold me in
Searching all these days to find the end
Your everything, your everything I'm not
But I'm anything, I'm anyone you want
And when I've had enough

She drains me
When I'm empty
She fills herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
Go on and have it all
Have it all
Have it all

Your everything you're everything I'm not
I'm anything I'm anyone you want

She drains me
When I'm empty
She fills herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me

Have it all

    My InterpretationFor me this song is about some dude that is very conflicted. I think that the general melody of the song describes a guy who is sad and doesn't have many things sorted out.

    then this guy meets a girl that he thinks (or others tell him) should be good for him, but he has a ver dull way of approaching this situations in general, almost like it is a duty (You're my size I need to try you on ). he starts to know more this girl but doesn't form a complete opinion about her (someone in between the right and wrong), but despite him being melancholic and gloomy she doesn't give up on him (through everything you kept your wings apart (she keeps 'flying' with him)) and doesn't change the way he treats him or feels about him (trough everything you stayed the same old heart).

    then he starts realising that when he thinks he cant be happy and that there are no such emotions inside him, she starts bringing some joy out of him (and when i've had enough, she drains me when im empty) and she doesn't mind that all the effort is made by her and that its up to her too make this work (she fills herself she takes it all), she takes every bit of happiness she can get from him. he thinks that he is committing way too much with her, but at the same time some of her personality is being transmitted to him (in too deep, she's spilling over me) and he starts to accept this (go on and have it all).

    He then starts panicking, he thinks that they are way to different to be together, she is way to cheerful and happy for him, so he tries to look for a way out (Running through this maze you hold me in, searching all these days to find the end , your everything, your everything I'm not) but this collides with the part of him that enjoys this connection and that would do anything to stay together (but im anything im anyone you want).

    After the second chorus he reinforce the idea of this conflict within him, he doesn't know what to do (Your everything you're everything I'm not, I'm anything I'm anyone you want ). in the song dave screams this quite strongly which emphasises the struggle.

    finally, after the last chorus, the song goes into this hard, dark outro, he hasn't made up his mind yet and you can tell that he is having a hard time deciding. and at the end the song ends abruptly, leaving us wondering what his desition was.

    General Commentto me, i think it's about a guy and a girl who have a connection, and well ya knowen you've got a connection with someone you can't just leave it, you've gotta try it out. and anyway, this girl is taking so much from him, she really tires him and wears him out, but he doesn't mind one bit because he's enjoying every second of it, hence him saying 'go on and have it all'.

    'you're my size I need to try you on' - he's attracted to her in many different ways and they have one of those special connections, so they need to try eachother out (i don't mean that in a rude way)

    uhhm yeah i'll leave the analysing there. but also, when i hear it, it does seem to me to be one of those songs thats has a kindof sexually charged sound, if you get what i mean....? ok ill shutup



    'someone inbetween the right and wrong' - she's not good for him but she's definitely not bad for him either'

    Song MeaningLet's be real. This song is quite obviously about a blow job. But, that said, I don't think the other posters are too far off. There may be another meaning here about the guy wanting to give all of himself to the girl, willing to be or do anything, not caring that she's using him, something along those lines.

    My InterpretationThis lyrics are so wrong, I've tried to change them but some issues. This song is definitely about sex, the actually action taking place.
    Chorus:
    She drains me when I'm empty - she has sex with him even though he has ejaculated(empty).
    She fills herself, she takes it all - his genitals are entering her own.
    In to deep, she's spilling over me - she's doing her hard and she is ejaculating on to him.
    Go on and have it all - he's not stopping he is giving her more hard sex.

    I goes on and on throughout the song. It's rude and an awesome song :D
