"Everything" as written by and Jim Ellison....
I remember you
Do you remember me too?
Born on the 14th of July
The smell of roses made her cry
Though you're going far from home
Rest assured you're not alone

'cause I would give everything that I own
I'd give you my love and this heart made of stone
The sun, the moon, the earth, the sky
I'd never even stop to wonder why
I would do anything
I would do everything
To be your everything

Seems like such a long, long time
Since your body crossed my mind
But I think that you should know
It wasn't I who had to go

And I would give everything that I own
I'd give you my heart and this skin and these bones
The sun, the moon, the earth, the sky
The motorcycle that I like to ride
I would do anything
I would do everything
To be your everything

But if ever you should stray
Just sing along and I'll replay
Or look into your hands, I'm slipping through them like a tieny grain of sand

I remember you
Do you remember me too?
Seems like such a long, long time
Since I held you near and called you mine

'cause I would give everything thing that I own
I'd give you my heart and this skin and these bones
The sun, the moon, the earth, the sky
A brand new car that you and I could drive

    General CommentStereo Fuse does a cover of this song, and both the regular version and the acoustic are leagues better than this one. Material Issue's "Everything" is a nice song, but a little folksy. Check out the superior version by Stereo Fuse and you won't be disappointed.

    This song is obviously about a guy pining for an ex, and willing to give up all his possessions to be with her.
