"Every Day" as written by Jeffrey Steele and Alissa Hayden Moreno....
You could've bowed down gracefully
But you didn't
You knew enough to know
To leave well enough alone

But you wouldn't
I drive myself crazy
Tryin' to stay out of my own way
The messes that I make

But my secrets are so safe
The only one who gets me
Yeah, you get me
It's amazing to me

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

I come around all broken down and
Crowded out
And you're comfort
Sometimes the place I go
Is so deep and dark and desperate
I don't know, I don't know

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

Sometimes I swear, I don't know if
I'm comin' or goin'
But you always say something
Without even knowin'

That I'm hangin' on to your words
With all of my might and it's alright
Yeah, I'm alright for one more night-
Every day

Every day, every day, every day
Every day, every day
You save me, you save me, oh, oh, oh
Every day
Every, every, every day-

Every day you save my life

    General CommentWhen I heard this song I interrupted it as one of two things: God or Loved Ones that always are there and take your back even in your darkest place. I actually was listening to it on pandora on my phone walking home from work and started crying because I had only a week ago hurt someone I loved so deeply and they still saw through that darkness and comforted me. But I see it also as speaking to God. I don't interrpret it all as talking about a stranger.

    General CommentI love this song. Its so cute that sometimes someone saves your life with out even knowing it. I can think of a few people who have done that for me.

    General CommentI agree with jdrlove: this song is about how people can save your life in certain ways and not even realize it. They make life worth it.

    General CommentI really love this song.. Can't describe why. It exemplifies the comfort that the song about through the singing, lyrics, music. Almost celebratory in the fact that the main character is so grateful for the mercy of this person's actions.. Even though they are probably unaware of what they are doing.

    General CommentI just heard this song on the radio yesterday while driving home from school. I have had the CD since it came out, but must have kept missing over it.
    Anyways, I agree with the first two posts, it is about those people that come along and have a huge impact without even knowing.
    I honestly can say that this is one of those songs that I would love to have as a wedding song for myself.

    General CommentEver since I've heard him perform this song on Jay Leno, I was hooked. Rascal Flatts has an amazing voice and this song is just so soothing.

    As for the meaning, the last four posts explained it all. Someone is apparently "lost" in some sort of way and a person, without even knowing, has let them see that it's not the end of the world and has "saved" them.

    And as for mvp828, I'm going to second that wedding song.

    General CommentI think this applies to God too. Because He saves our lifes and we don't realize it...

    General CommentI, also believe it is about saving ourselves but also about how we reach out with good intentions. Some may see or shortcomings but I believe the song refers to getting back to ourselves.
