"Everthing But You" as written by and Neilson Hubbard Glen Phillips....
I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do
Everything seems lost, everything but you
I’m not sure what it takes, I’m fuzzy on the rules
And everything’s so dark, everything but you

I’ve forgotten how to pray, forgotten what was true
And everything feels bought, everything but you
The battle of the bands, the rattle of the news
And everything’s so smart, everything but you

Take me to the town for torture
Break me on the wheel of fortune
All this entertainment’s no good
It just leaves me hungry for you

And I’m fuckin’ up the words, murderin’ the tune
And everything’s so slack, everything but you
I’m not sure what it takes, someone’s gotta choose
And everything’s sewn up, everything but you
Everything’s enough, everything but you

take me dancing, pale and knock-kneed
Spin me through the crowd and drop me
Dizzy in the middle of the floor

And oh my god, you terrify me
Oblivious you blow right by me
Spinnin’ wine and melted ice cream
Random, warm, and mesmerizing

You terrify me, you are everything
You terrify me, you are everything
You terrify me, you are everything
You terrify me

I’ll just stick to what I know, I’m proud to be a fool
And everything’s too much, everything but you
And everything’s a crutch, everything but you
Everything but you…

    General CommentI think this song is, yet again, a wonderful allusion to someone who you love so deeply that even when absolutely everything has gone horribly wrong in your life, that one person is the embodiment of clarity in your world. And it can be a little scary sometimes. :)
