"All That I Am" as written by and William Charles Anderson....
The lights go down in Brooklyn,
As she's walking out the door
Oh and they're lining up like soldiers,
Going off to fight the war
And all the colors look like fireworks,
In skies she knew before

And nights can't hide the day
Then the tears roll down her face
When the ligh hits those eyes, that's she's dying to say
"Just take me away"

But the fog just sits like blankets
And it's drowning out the glow
You can hear voices loud and singing out,
A song nobody knows
But to her it sounds like home

Oh cause nights can't hide the day
Then the tears roll down her face
And the light huts those eyes, that's she's dying to say
"Just take me away, from all that I am
Just take me away, from all that I am"

Cause the fog just sits like blankets
And it smothers the glow

Oh and nights can't hide the day
Oh then the tears roll down her face
And the light hits those eyes, that's she's dying to say
"Just take me away, from all that I am.
Just take me away, from all that I am.
Just take me away, from all that I am.
Just take me away, from all that I am."

    General CommentI too love their live version of this song - only I don't have their live version under "Parachute" - instead it's under "Sparky's Flaw".

    Not gonna lie... I kinda miss their old name.

    Song MeaningI'm getting a sense from this song that there's this girl who is a close friend of the singer, and she's alone in a new place (a new city, perhaps), but she's feeling lost and therefore nostalgic for home.
