"Everyday" as written by Paul Young, John Stimpson and Victor Harvey Emerson....
Everyday I wake up and hear you whisper my name
Maybe breathe a little prayer but it just ain't the same
Ignoring every word you say
Every word when you tell me

Whoa be still
Just stay still
Whoa be still
But oh God

Everybody's got something for me to do
And my head's filled with thoughts of everything but you
Cause I never listen to anything you say
And I fall in submission to everything but you everyday

I go to your house and fall on my knees
The very next morning and cry out please
Would you take this life I call my own?
Would you let your house become my home?

Whoa be still
Just stay still
Whoa be still
But oh Jesus

Everybody's got something for me to do
And my head's filled with thoughts of everything but you
Cause I never listen to anything you say
And I fall in submission to everything but you everyday

Yeah

Everyday
Everyday

Everybody's got something for me to do
And my head's filled with thoughts of everything but you
Cause I never listen to anything you say
And I fall in submission to everything but you everyday

    General CommentI think this song has a story way behind what people say. I think it's more than god and him or him and the church.

    I think there was a girl who ruined his life.
    And he's talking to god, telling him that he wants his life over.
    Because she hurt him so horribly.
    And he's saying that finally he got something to do for everybody and she's last on his mind.


    I don't know. It's just an opinion :]

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who just gets way too caught up in such a fast paced world and he is crying out to God to help him be more focused on God and less of earthly distractions.
