"Everything to Me" as written by and John/phair Shanks....
I bet it makes you laugh
Watching me work so hard to reach you
You never gave a damn
About all of those things I did to please you

All that you wanted, you found somewhere else
And nothing could drag you away from yourself

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

Lucky I've been through hell
Backroads and shortcuts I know them well
Baby just stick with me
We'll make it together, just wait and see

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

The walls they close in
The air it goes out
We're left with nothing but a shadow of doubt
Nobody talks, no one is here
It's just you and me

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

I bet it makes you laugh
Watching me work so hard to reach you

    General CommentI think it's about a girl that has a boyfriend, and yet she feels that he doesn't really like her and perhaps is just with her for the physical benefits (i.e. sex, making out) and such.. and he says that he knows her, but she honestly does doubt it. She perhaps sees him staring at other girls, or going to other people for comfort when SHE'S his girlfriend. She wonders "would you take the time to catch me if I fall?" as if she doubts that he's really there for me...

    okay.. that's enough about my rambling :) over all, it's a wonderful song.

    General Commentshe just wants all of him but he's always looking for something better...she tries to make him notice yet he knows nothing about her and kind of treats her like a joke...she keeps trying but eventually he finds someone else
